Ooyala Flex Media Platform

Ooyala provides the opportunity to scale and manage multiple services and platforms in the organization with its integration services with internal tools like Slack and multiple other applications. Also, it helps you understand the views, reach, and engagement with the videos that help you define your next campaign strategy. In my experience, Ooyala could be less appropriate for managing URLs and unreliability may make you upload videos more than once.

Vimeo Live

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

Ooyala Flex Media Platform

  • It's intuitive and easy to use.
  • Ooyala Now is the only product I have seen to date that shows me real-time usage.
  • I like the people.
Ricky Sutton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vimeo Live

  • 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

Ooyala Flex Media Platform

  • Ooyala's integration with the ad serving platform is not as good in terms of user interface and user experience.
  • The user interface could be improved (making it more like YouTube and Vimeo).
  • The feature that provides scheduling could be improved to be seamless for publishing to Instagram.

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

Alternatives Considered

Ooyala Flex Media Platform

We have used all the rival products. Ooyala has been our favourite for years, but feel like they have stalled in new product development.
Ricky Sutton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vimeo Live

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

Ooyala Flex Media Platform

  • Ooyala certainly helped improve ROI.
  • It also provides a strong capability for integration with other marketing automation tools for improved digital marketing ROI.
  • Reduction in cost of operations can be easily achieved with integrations with multiple software applications.

  • 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.
