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.

Perfect for the "one to many" steaming scenarios. We sometimes struggle with choosing the right platform when we may need two way communication and establishing if the chat feature is sufficient or if we need to move to a true web conferencing platform. We love the simplicity of the one way stream and really try to make the presenting department justify any move to two way communication. We are so confident in Vimeo Live because we have all the control, if we go to any platform that relies on the far end having equipment of technical expertise the chances of a successful event diminish greatly

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.

  • 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.

  • The editing features are very basic for an archived event, work for us most of the time but can be clunky.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Vimeo Enterprise

  • As a University we view this as way to include a larger community in our events and ROI is not direct.
  • We moved from a pay per event streaming service to a yearly subscription with Vimeo Live and our usage has increased as departments don't have to consider the cost of each event.
