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.

Webex Events

Cisco Webex Events is well suited for internal meetings or all-staff presentations. I would not recommend it be used for client-facing or stakeholder presentations, education seminars or any particular event where a branding opportunity would be valuable (since this is unavailable in Webex Events)

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.

Webex Events

  • Training - trusted platform for training purposes
  • Real-time - remote participants can provide real-time feedback via voice or chat
  • Interface - the interface is fairly simple and easy to understand for someone who has never used the platform before. The barrier to entry is relatively low.

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

Webex Events

  • WebEx lacks some capability and functionality compared to other products available (i.e. Adobe Connect).
  • The video output that WebEx produces are in a format that is not universal (.arf). This means that editing the video can be somewhat troublesome.
  • WebEx sometimes has issues loading with certain browsers.

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.

Cisco Webex Events allows us to connect with internal and external users. Cisco Webex Events is easy to use and set up. It has great video and audio quality. It has always been available for our scheduled events. And COVID-19, has allowed us to continue conducting our panel discussions and focus groups to keep new product development moving forward at a rapid pace.

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.

The support I received was not that great. I've never spoken to a live person before, instead, I've only used their support portal. It answers a few FAQs but for the most part, it's lacking lots of potential information. This section titled "Popular Topics" could be improved upon and would help users to self-correct versus reaching out to someone at Webex with their issues.

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

Webex Events

Our company tried RingCentral before switching over to Webex Events. Both are very similar when it comes to providing a platform to allow people to communicate with one another. Overall, Webex provided us with a much simpler interface to navigate. Webex also presented us with close to no technical issues whereas RingCentral gave us constant issues during meetings and events.

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

Webex Events

  • We are currently only using Webex Events for webinars with external clients or stakeholders, since it is too cost prohibitive to use it internally.
  • Webex Events is cost prohibitive even for use with only external users, given that there are similar tools with similar functionality at lower price points.
  • Webex Events has enabled us to reach users far and wide, but is not unique in its ability to do this.
