Kaltura

Kaltura is an excellent tool IF you have a large library of content. It can be pretty pricey so if you are early in launching an online program you may be better off waiting a few years until you've amassed a large enough catalog to warrant the investment in such a tool.The tool is best purchased by a University or company-wide vs having a single department try to find the budget for it. The unlimited plan pays for itself in most cases if you go this route. Secondly, you must be willing to invest time and resources into on-going training for your faculty and staff, especially for those who wish to create their own media and use the quizzing features.

Vidyard

I would say that Vidyard is a great tool for Account Managers. They seem to love it when working with clients. We have had a harder time with sales adopting the product. I believe if it is a quick sale cycle, Vidyard may not be the first tool I would suggest.

Pros

Kaltura

  • Very easy to use interface for uploading videos or capturing a screen recording. There are very few clicks required to get the media up and running. The video conversion process that happens on the back-end is fast and provides videos in device agnostic formats.
  • Integrates well with other systems, such as our Moodle LMS. This extends the capabilities of the LMS and also allows us to keep video/multimedia content organized in a central location (the KMC).
  • Kaltura can be connected to various processes within your organization. For example, we have a system in place that allows a video lecture in a classroom to be uploaded to Kaltura in a very easy manner.
  • User/role management is very important as some people on campus have more privileges to publish content than do others. We have Kaltura connected to our Single Sign-On solution for authentication and we can assign roles to specific people within the Kaltura software.

  • Data: being able to see who watched the video, for how long, where they live, and how these things change over time is incredibly useful.
  • Interactivity: being able to gate videos or add a call to action in one central place is great.
  • Easy hosting: once a video is uploaded to Vidyard you can post it in multiple channels but make changes in one central place, so it makes it very easy to keep track of assets.

Cons

Kaltura

  • Tech Support takes a bit longer to reply
  • Better audio support
  • Could improve the basic editor
  • Better analytics from Kaltura Classroom
Rubén Durán | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • The Vidyard UI can be difficult to navigate and the concept of a player requires extensive effort to understand.
  • Vidyard allows clipping the beginning and end of videos but does not provide an undo option if a mistake is made. This requires re-recording the video if part of a sentence was mistakenly cut off.
  • Vidyard's video clipping tool is difficult to use and it's hard to tell how much you'll be cutting from the beginning or end of a video which results in repeated adjustments to prevent losing an important part of the video.

Since we have many terabytes of data currently stored with Kaltura and the system and it works great, it would be very difficult to move to another system.

It has been an integral part of both our employees and customers experience. I would highly recommend VidYard to anyone looking for new ways to make their support interactions more personable and efficient. Not only that, but is a huge value add for existing customers of the HubSpot product as well.

Vidyard does what it is supposed to do, but it takes regular use and adoption to really get any benefit. It is much more beneficial as a 1:1 personal sales video tool than in mass marketing email blast campaigns. The analytics are insightful and the tool has some cool ways to make videos more interactive and branded.

It performs very well. I have never had any bugs while recording, and none of the videos have been impaired or corrupted. I don't believe it integrates with any other software but you could contact the company to learn more. I am not sure if it is only available on Chrome.

The first line support agents seldom are able to diagnose or troubleshoot any problems that we have. These agents simply open support tickets in their system which are escalated to a foreign level 2 support agent which creates at least a day delay between reporting a problem and getting initial feedback. Any back-and-forth questions add at least another day delay.

I first heard of Vidyard at a marketing conference (INBOUND 2019). I was impressed with the team working at the booth. They were friendly, helpful, and they were able to really show me how Vidyard could help our specific company. I took all that information to the owners when I got back from the conference and it was an easy sell. Since the very beginning, I felt like we were in good hands. We had great people working with us and helping us get everything set up. When there was a new account manager, she reached out (via video message of course) and made it clear that she was happy to help us with whatever we needed.

It's pretty straightforward. The bulk of the work goes on outside of Vidyard - it's the time required to add different videos to your website - that was probably the only difficult part and had nothing to do with Vidyard.

Alternatives Considered

Kaltura

We considered a couple of options 2 years ago. One of those options has since been sold and dismantled. Kaltura was really the best product in this space. Now, Canvas is releasing its own video solution very soon and it has some nice workflow features. It remains to be seen if that solution will challenge Kaltura.
Robert Gibson MS, MBA, EdD | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

I've never evaluated another product like Vidyard. I just used screen recordings with RingCentral before, and I remember the file size being very large and having to add the video as an attachment. So this was a major improvement to be able to shoot videos and easily share with my clients.

Return on Investment

Kaltura

  • The ability to have such a robust solution for rich media content far outweighs the cost of service.
  • We have new projects which will push the limits and abilities of Kaltura in the future.
Leonardo Ferre | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • Sales outreach emails using Vidyard are far more effective than text based ones. We've split tested campaigns and proved that. Typical response rate on those emails that are opened, show text based emails is less than 10%. Video based ones are above 60%.
