Team-to-Many: a next-level video conferencing tool
Team-to-Many, movingimage’s new live-streamed video conferencing tool, is a powerful business extension that takes town hall meetings to the next level. Who should be using it, when, and how? Read our new blog post to learn more about it!
Company town hall meetings have changed tremendously over time. For many years, these meetings—whose purpose was to improve communication between senior leadership and employees—would require physical attendance at a dedicated location. However, with a market characterized by digital disruption and a rise in remote workers, video conferencing via dedicated software has become a common, cost-effective alternative. While a video conferencing software is key to any video communication, pairing it with the right video collaboration tool can take its capabilities one step further by providing access to a world of cutting-edge technologies. Take, for example, Team-to-Many—movingimage’s new, enterprise-level video conferencing extension.
Team-to-Many is a cloud-based video conferencing webcast tool for enterprises. It extends any broadcast reach and enables large-scale video communication between executives and distributed teams around the world. Using Team-to-Many, businesses can overcome the inherent limitations of standard video conferencing tools while leveraging the power of high-capacity video streaming. As a result, large-scale team meetings can be streamed on any device, without buffering time or loss of video quality.
Team-to-Many allows you to choose between a standard and an ad-hoc video webcast. A standard video webcast requires organizations to appoint IT support that would be responsible for webcasts’ configuration and security. It also requires a dedicated space, such as a conference room with professional streaming gear, including cameras, microphones, and an encoder, to name just a few. Due to the extensive preparations and configurations required for it to take place, it typically needs to be scheduled in advance. Team-to-Many, on the other hand, is a simplified tool. It eliminates the need for equipment, configurations, and dedicated space, allowing anyone to launch a webcast session immediately, from wherever, whenever.
How to Use Team-to-Many
Team-to-Many allows anyone with a video conference system to deliver messages, record them, and share them with other employees with one click. All you need to do to launch a session is schedule a meeting, initiate a call using a video conference system or a desktop client, and the webcast will stream live to all invited members. During the streaming, participants can ask the speaker questions using a dedicated chat box. Sessions can be recorded, enhanced with AI transcription and metadata, and shared with colleagues via CorporateTube.
The Technology Behind Team-to-Many
Team-to-Many employs an HTML5-based interface as well as CDN (Content Delivery Network) and eCDN (Enterprise Content Delivery Network) to provide viewers with the best video experience, regardless of the device, operating system or browser. It supports all standards-based devices including Cisco, Polycom, Lifesize, Sony, Huawei, Radvision, Yealink, and more, as well as Microsoft software clients such as Teams, Skype for Business, and Skype for Business Online. Note that, unlike network-based standard conferencing tools, Team-to-Many is cloud-based and can be shared between all scheduled webcasts in your organization.
