Overall Satisfaction with IBM Watson Media's Video Streaming

I use the streaming platform to stream user test sessions to our research partners and across the entire company. It enables everyone to see our testing as it's happening, to see our methodologies, and to communicate our test results live.
  • Streams high-quality video and audio.
  • Shows multiple feeds (camera and screen share) in the same view.
  • Quickly change video sources to participant testing sessions.
  • Sometimes bandwidth causes video quality to become very low.
We have always been able to stream to as many users as we needed, so the software is truly excellent for this.
The software is amazing when it comes to traffic management so we can scale to sharing with a lot of viewers. This is helpful for our company to have since it really helps us to better meet our daily needs and grow in a number of ways. As a research company, it's important to share the results of our research with everyone necessary.
Our company uses the metrics to see if people are watching our videos, tracking how many view each video and understanding what content is watched more. This actively helps us tailor our services and our deliverables more effectively—this, in turn, helps our organization grow in a number of ways.
We find it's important for any video platform to have accurate, immediate, automatic closed captions that convey what the different users in our video streams are saying. This is especially because of the fact that we stream our research live, where a large number of people need to see the results as they are being obtained. The software is able to perform very well in this regard.
This is an excellent platform for customizing multiple video and audio sources into a single view (e.g. screen share and user's webcam).
