Overall Satisfaction with IBM Watson Media's Video Streaming

We use it for our annual conference, which takes place once a year. We live stream the sessions over a 4 day period. It gives us the ability to allow anyone to view our broadcast (with the link). Also, nice to allow comment streams.

Pros

  • Once set up, very easy to start/stop streams
  • Review saves streams, editing information
  • Sharing saved streams with others
  • Easy way to save streams and download later

Cons

  • I do not like the free version going away. It allowed us to keep streams available when we aren't live streaming (once a year).
  • Allow editing of multiple stream information (like the name).
We've never had a complaint about the speed of service. We only typically have up to 100 simultaneous viewers, but the process is pretty smooth and seamless.
To my knowledge, we haven't had the need for it. We run our event, download our videos and go on to next year.
We use this information to show why we need to do live streaming. We don't use the analytics for anything specific other than to satisfy the curiosity of management.
Well suited for larger events where you don't know your target audience's availability to social media or their experience. Give them a link and they view. Also, they can go back and watch previous streams all in one place.
