    This software is ideal for any size church. The ability to purchase a modest number of viewer-hours per month for a reasonable cost (no-ads) is hugely important for non-profit organizations. Being able to live-stream, record and watch from the archives is also great. Finally, the chat room allows for a more interactive experience than traditional tv broadcasting.

    Although there is room for improvement, it is a fantastic service and I would suggest this to many clients. In fact, I already have and overall they're happy with it. It does what is needed, has impressive features in the free version as well as the Plus version, and they seem to truly listen to what their clients want for features. They're head and shoulders above the competition with delivering a service that works (unlike other mentioned) along with having a slick end product. I'm so happy that I moved over to Vimeo

    Pros

    IBM Watson Media's Video Streaming

    • It allows us to stream without special equipment. We mainly use our phones.
    • The quality of the videos is amazing and I love the fact that videos auto-save and you can download and edit them for later.
    • The program allows you to create playlists so that we can stream on our online channel 24/7
    LeShawnda Fitzgerald | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vimeo Enterprise

    • We use the hardware based Broadcaster which makes for very easy set up. It is so easy we can loan the equipment to smaller events that do not require our on site technical assistance.
    • Ease of integration and embedding in our Facebook page and website give our followers many options to join the stream.
    • Real time statistics on viewership and chat provide up to the minute understanding of our viewers needs and issues should they arise.

    Cons

    IBM Watson Media's Video Streaming

    • The user interface is pretty good, but it definitely needs some improvements to help organize videos better, and request online restoration of videos that have been taken offline.
    • As far as I can tell, new features haven't been added since UStream was acquired by IBM. It seems like development has been paused, or focused on back-end improvements that we as users simply don't see. Would like to see some new improvements being made, especially at this price point.
    • The mobile viewing window lacks options and cannot detect device orientation. So I embed a video on a page that I can publish through an app, but then the viewing window does not orient correctly, without some complicated JavaScript that I personally have to write. This is an example of a feature that IBM should make and have part of the viewer window platform. Mobile friendly is essential in this day and age.
    Derek Hoiem | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vimeo Enterprise

    • I'd like the ability to adjust the sizing of the progress bar for the videos. I recorded my videos with a profile photo that could only display in the lower left corner but when I attempted to add Vimeo's progress bar (showing how much time is left in the video) it covered the profile photo. If I'd kept that progress bar, the result would have looked unprofessional.
    • I'd like the "optimization" time after the video is uploaded to be faster. However, I realize this may depend on the speed of my internet connection.
    • I'd like more features in the Plus version of the service such as custom branding and lead generation options. This was included in another competitor that I tried before moving to Vimeo.

    Our organization depends heavily on this streaming service. Now that we have the option of allowing our clients to attend meetings virtually, we can never retract that option as so many of our clients love the flexibility. Also, we have no complaints with the service itself. It is reliable and dependable and any issues we have encountered have never been to blame on the service but rather our lack of knowledge of it or needing to update our embed code

    Ustream has a very easy to use interface as well as multiple articles explain the methods and procedure involved in properly utilizing their services. This is very important to the house of worship market, as organizations like ours are often utilizing volunteer to help produce our content. While simple on the surface, the platform has great depth in its customization and tracking abilities. This allows a power user, such as myself, to dig deep beneath the surface of the main settings and create the streaming experience I want to showcase.

    We funded 'white glove' service as our timelines were tight and our needs were well-defined. Tier 1 and Tier 2 support were able to help us get up and running in shorter order than we would have on our own. Documentation on the eCDN product had gaps, increasing the time to resolve and created concerns about success.

    Implementation is tough because there are so many different ways clients are expecting content to appear on their platforms. Ustream video embeds have been a good solution in areas where direct integrations are not available. But, this is an area for improvement in the case of LMS and marketing integrations. On the broadcast side, embed codes work well because we use them with CMS systems that provide their own library and user management.

    Alternatives Considered

    IBM Watson Media's Video Streaming

    When this project was evaluating streaming providers in 2013, Livestream was the closest to uStream in feature set. However, we found the packages that uStream provided were financially better considering the volume of customers who were going to stream our content. We also felt at the time that uStream had a superior API.

    We chose Vimeo Live over StreamGuys as the yearly subscription model is much more flexible for our budget situation. The ease of use of the Broadcaster in Vimeo Live also reduced the amount of technical assistance required during events. The flexibility of embedding Vimeo Live streams into web and other social media with our own branding make it a better choice that Facebook and GoToMeeting.

    Return on Investment

    IBM Watson Media's Video Streaming

    • Our ROI is measured by the provision of ministry and satisfaction of our congregation. We are extremely pleased with our USTREAM and feel that it is a valuable asset to our church.
    Michael Sharpe | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vimeo Enterprise

    • Positive ROI - the pricing is better than other comparable services with a better end result. So, the return on investment is significant since it is an inexpensive way to deliver what I need to my program users.
    • Positive - their 30 day trial period is so helpful to be able to determine if this is truly a good investment for you/your business. I was able to do all that I needed to within the first 30 days for live video, then continue with keeping the embed links with the continuing monthly subscription.
    • Positive - good analytics within the account (not Google Analytics with my level of subscription) so I can see how many users are viewing my videos, what devices they're on, and where they are in the world. This is all important for my business.
