Kaltura was the best option given the sheer volume of people we needed to support digitally. Others were better in their own regard, but due to limitations in number of attendees or sessions, Kaltura was the best option.

Kaltura integration with LMS and overall support for instruction gives it a big edge over these other solutions.
For instance, While Zoom can work very well for video conferencing, Kaltura allows an unparalleled integration with the LMS, from attendance to grading.
Also, the addition of Kaltura Interactive Video is big for engagement, and not available with any other media tool.

We used (or are still using for some extent) these services for different purposes (internal or in favor of our customers).
Usually the decision of "which platform to use" is based on specific customers' needs and trying to solve their needs with the proper integration, so I can't say that Kaltura is better or worse than other available solutions we use - they are each good in their field...

Unlike Vimeo or YouTube, Kaltura provides organizational control over the content. Users have control of their personal media, but administrators can remove or unpublish content as needed. It is essentially a private, organization managed version of these public video streaming platforms which can be used within your institution by a variety of users.

Panopto is a much cheaper option (based on a pay per view model) but the user experience is not nearly as good. The video portal UI is difficult to navigate and the recording feature requires downloading separate desktop software that differs greatly from PC to MAC. Inline quizzing features are far behind Kaltura. It does have stronger analytics tools but they are the type that are better exported to .csv and processed by an advanced Excel user.

Vimeo Pro is a very cheap and solid option for a small program or business that is just starting out, but it isn't highly searchable, it doesn't support a large body of users and does not offer any type of online features. It isn't really much more than a repository but it is a bit nicer than using freeware such as YouTube.

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.

In 2011 we looked at ShareStream and MDID3. Kaltura was the only system at the time that had a Blackboard building block. The newest Blackboard versions have a "video everywhere" feature that connects to a users You Tube account. But a user needs to log into that account before being able to upload the video and unless they have enabled the feature they cannot upload a video longer than 15 minutes.
