Partnership with Ramp
Partner to Provide Superior Intranet Content Delivery Experience Across the Enterprise
Growth of on-demand video for CEO webcasts, employee training and online communications fuels need for improved video delivery
BOSTON, April 11, 2017 – movingimage, the leading secure enterprise video platform provider, and Ramp, the leading provider of next-generation enterprise video delivery solutions for large enterprises, today announced a partnership which will dramatically improve video quality on intranet networks by reducing bandwidth consumption 90% or more.
As the use of enterprise video continues to rise, so too does the demand on network capacity and the potential for service interruptions. Integrating the best elements of movingimage’s SaaS enterprise video platform, VideoManager Pro, with Ramp’s AltitudeCDN™ multicasting and caching solutions eliminates video bottleneck issues employees suffer from behind the company firewall. The advanced caching technology in Ramp’s OmniCache solution alleviates redundant video traffic traversing the corporate network when thousands of employees request specific video feeds. Coupled with movingimage’s security and compliance technology, customers will be able to tap into the most advanced Enterprise Video Platform available in a rapidly growing market.
The use of video in the enterprise continues to grow at a rapid rate based on its effectiveness for communications such as employee training and sharing information throughout the company. As noted by Wainhouse Research in its State of Enterprise Streaming and Webcasting – 2017 report, 25 percent of organizations use live online video at least weekly and 45 percent of viewers watch live video weekly. Using video reduces the costs associated with corporate travel and improves the level of employee engagement. Whether used for real-time streaming, delivery of content to mobile devices, corporate video conferencing or in wearable technology devices that leverage the Internet of Things, enterprise video platforms offer enormous growth potential.
“Corporate intranets can easily be thought of as tiny versions of the global internet. However, limited bandwidth often restricts a company’s ability to stream video throughout the enterprise. By leveraging enterprise content delivery technology from Ramp, customers will be able to enjoy uninterrupted video for CEO webcasts, training and online communications in a secure environment,” said Rainer Zugehoer, founder and CEO, movingimage.
“The increase in demand for superior video technology for employee communication has put a tremendous amount of pressure on corporate IT departments to improve network traffic performance and eliminate bandwidth bottlenecks. By integrating Ramp technology with VideoManager Pro from movingimage, customers will receive unparalleled streaming of live and recorded content across the enterprise,” said Tom Racca, Ramp CEO.
