Video Platforms Overview
What are Video Platforms?
Video platforms allow users to upload, store, and deliver video content, and leverage it for marketing purposes (e.g. lead generation, conversion, advertising). They may also be referred to as video clouds, video players, or video hosting platforms.
Content may include product demo videos, help/training videos, or webinar recordings. In addition to hosting pre-recorded, on-demand video, some platforms allow users to stream live events. Another use case is for employee education and training videos.
Content Security & Accessibility
Enterprise video platforms host video files in a secure but accessible environment. Users can control access to sensitive data, but also share video content by emailing or embedding a link on a website. Users can embed a link on both internal (employees only) or external (customer-facing) sites. Some platforms also enable video file downloads, however, not all video platform products include this capability.
Video Platforms Features & Capabilities
The following are some of the core capabilities of most video platforms:
Video creation and editing tools: Allows users to create and edit videos before uploading them.
Analytics: Allow users to monitor viewer engagement and video streaming quality.
Integrations: Viewer data can be merged with CRM and/or the user’s marketing automation system.
Video players/playlists: Ability for users to create a bucket/placeholder link that will not break, even if the video content is changed/updated.
Video sharing: Ability to share hosted videos globally, even in countries/regions with video censoring.
Subtitles: Videos either include subtitles or integrate with third-party subtitling services.
Data security: Users can monitor Internal videos containing sensitive data, with easy access controls over who can view/share the content.
Metadata options: Ability to use tools such as video tags, descriptions, and summaries to facilitate content searches and enhance SEO of embedded videos.
Buyers should consider whether they plan to edit videos within the platform or before uploading the files. Some vendors offer editing tools or services, whereas others simply deliver uploaded video files as is.
Mobile device compatibility is another important aspect of leading enterprise video platforms. Videos (like other web content) should be able to be rendered on a range of devices. However, mobile access may be more important for certain use cases more than others (e.g. marketing to consumers, training salespeople).
Paid video platform software is typically priced on a monthly subscription basis. Prices start between $80-$100 per month and increase with the amount of usage, company size, and features needed. However, some vendors offer free versions and/or free trial periods of their software.
Enterprise level solutions may charge a one-time startup fee, which can cost a couple thousand dollars, along with a monthly subscription fee. Not all vendors openly disclose prices on their website but will provide them upon request.
