For internal communications such as Town Halls, StreamShark is a perfect solution. StreamShark provides the necessary security needed for private companies as well as a tried and true viewing experience for the end user.

Appropriate: - Connecting with customers by showing face- Using the screenshare + camera recording to show my face and the specific steps.Less appropriate:In my line of business, we have to be on guard not to infringe upon privacy, and there are cases, (especially with student data) where I have to choose a live meeting with instructors over providing them a personalized recording.

Pros

StreamShark Live Streaming Platform

  • StreamShark has an excellent live support model, which gives us real-time support on live stream productions. Another feature we like is the Okta SSO integration. This makes it simple to manage access to the videos and streams.
  • Our account manager, James Broberg, is an absolute pleasure to work with. He clearly has our goals in mind when he suggests the new features in our bi-weekly meeting.
  • Additionally, the StreamShark support team, namely, Yudong, Robert, and Aakanksha drive our requests to completion in a timely manner.
  • The look and feel of the GUI is user-friendly.

  • It makes it easy to troubleshoot problems for our clients instead of having to get on the phone with a client
  • It makes it easy to share video insights across the org. I love being able to show the data to upper management.
  • It is great tool for our sales team. It makes it very easy to personalize outreach while also being scalable since you can stack videos together.

Cons

StreamShark Live Streaming Platform

  • Multiple homepages for channels e.g. one for public and one for internal.
Lawrence Barrett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • There could be clearer, in-app walk-throughs of how to add events to videos.
  • A notification setting for when a viewer fills in a form or similar
  • Email embed is a little rudimentary: it would be nice if you could choose to have a gif rather than just a still and if it was possible to adjust the size etc.

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.

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

StreamShark Live Streaming Platform

We used IBM Cloud Video (previously called Ustream) for years. StreamShark is a better product in every sense. It is a more cost effective product. They have a support team who really cares about their clients success. And their product is ultimately more reliable than IBMs.

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

  • This service has positively impacted the organization by allowing larger audiences to receive information and act on said information in a more timely manner. This equates to more productivity around the organization, as initiatives and objectives can be efficiently shared with remote attendees in all of our different office locations.

  • Vidyard has increased the amount of communication and engagement we've had with our customers regarding feature updates. It's a lot easier to watch a quick video than it is to read a paragraph! This makes the customers happier and features are accepted with far fewer complaints of change.
