Product Details

What is IBM Watson Media's Video Streaming?

IBM Watson Media (formerly IBM Cloud Video) provides an enterprise video solution, powered by Watson AI, for creating, storing, managing, broadcasting and measuring the impact of live and recorded video.

There are two editions:

  • IBM Enterprise Video Streaming (private or internal corporate communications)
  • IBM Video Streaming (external events and monetized video streaming)

Both editions include storage, event support, custom branding, content management, multi-user accounts, and real-time analytics. Both are powered by IBM Watson AI for automatic speech to text conversion and automated closed captioning.

IBM Enterprise Video Streaming is an internal video solution that secures video assets for employee use (typically access via single sign-on/corporate directories). Individual viewer tracking measures engagement on a per video or viewer basis. This solution is often used in conjunction with IBM's Enterprise Content Delivery Network (ECDN) offering which does stream splitting and edge caching to help protect the corporate network from the strain of video going across the network.

IBM Video Streaming, an external video solution with optional monetization option, powers video streaming for large external audiences. It offers scalability for massive viewership using the SD-CDN, a software defined content delivery network built with QoS (Quality of Service) in mind to reliably deliver video.

We've used the platform as a service provider. We produce live streams for many organizations on many different platforms. When a client needs a platform with professional streaming abilities we often recommend IBM Cloud Video and TalkPoint®. We've had a lot of success with IBM Cloud Video with production partners that want to get into the live streaming service provider world. It's been ideal for projects that happen in other states and countries that just aren't cost effective for us to personally be there on-site.

We are currently using Ustream in order to realise webinars and broadcast live events, in order to expand our audience and minimise costs related to travelling and organising conferences. The player can be easily embedded in another online platform, allowing us to integrate live broadcasting of events and seminars to our website, allowing for greater visibility of our page.

What our clients have seen is a marked improvement in the M&A teams ability to onboard new practices/entities using far less resources. For one industry-leader, they were able to cut their M&A training costs by over %60, increase their training attendance by over %50, and decrease onboard timeline by weeks.

We broadcast live interviews for multiple clients. This question really doesn't really apply to us, as we don't utilize Ustream for any of the examples. However, maybe I should look into it a bit more.

Mainly we're able to provide a quality viewing experience without the noise of Facebook or YouTube to our audience, providing a better branding experience for our users. This shows that we're not just building on the back of another company that doesn't have our users in mind. So for us, using a solution like IBM Video allows us to portray a higher level of "trustworthiness" to our users/customers.

IBM Cloud Video has been used to share the ministry, work and up to date information about our ministry. It allows us to invite people to watch and learn from our live events. Inviting people into the live events, as opened new support and opportunities for us as a ministry.

Saves time on travelling. For internal events, users need not go to the actual place to view the speech or training. That save time and added more productivity on the users to do their work and watch/listen the webcast at the same time. For external events, users can view from their home or work place if we have a full capacity registered turnout.

Ustream has stretched the influence of our organization out across the globe. While we already had an international influence, we re now able to maintain and even grow that influence via international broadcasts every week. We are also able to offer this features to outside clients that come to our campus and utilize our facilities. This flexibility is, honestly, expected in this day and age. Ustream helps achieve this quickly, efficiently, and as affordably as possible at our scale.

We have attracted new clients over the 5 years we have broadcasted with Ustream - no commercials and being able to brand our stream has helped us look more attractive in the market compared to our competitors. People are thrilled to see their family/friends perform live, especially with the adaptive bit-rates and mobile video implementation - people have a great experience viewing our events.

In broadcasting, a reliable and high quality 24/7 video stream is essential. We have experienced zero downtime as a result of platform errors or complications. We also get a lot of great feedback from viewer about the high quality of live streams. In the next few years we are working on audience profile and engagement initiatives to improve how we plan and prioritize live event and series project resources. The flexibility and analytics capabilities of Ustream will be a critical backbone of these initiatives.

We achieved the ability to deliver a high quality, highly usable, very robust convention experience for those that could not appear in person. They were able to chat with each other and feel like they were in person. We also sold the platform to our consultants and achieved our sales targets.

We have been able to ensure that each employee is able to view company-wide meetings and broadcasts with certainty. We have also been able to point out to people who are remote that tend to complain about not being able to see the broadcast that we know exactly how much of the broadcast they actually watched, which has been hilarious because the never view the whole thing.

Greatly enhanced our townhall presentations. Executive management have been thrilled at the way our hip/trendy office gets presented to investors and remote offices. When you call yourself a "unicorn", it goes a long way to deliver crisp HD livestreams to everyone in the organization. Our global and remote US offices now get a multi-angle presentation in 1080p that is easily streamed with a simple password. The enterprise option is sexy as hell with the SSO and eCDN features, but ultimately is cost prohibitive.
