Your employees, customers, and partners need the ability to connect and collaborate, at any time, from any location—across time zones or simply across the conference table.
And those workplaces are expanding faster than ever, powered by mobile and cloud usage that makes virtual meetings essential. With scalable and secure voice, video, and content sharing, real-time collaboration can happen anywhere. Staying connected can lead to improved productivity and faster decision-making, as well as better customer service. But only if the technology offers a seamless experience and is intuitive enough to drive user adoption. While the need for better meetings is universal, not all conferencing tools are the same.
Choosing the wrong tool could actually decrease productivity by wasting valuable meeting time troubleshooting the technology, or by providing a negative experience that will deter users from embracing it. This is especially true in situations where poor meeting quality could impact
While using stock images and video will save you time, a conventional stock solution is not enough. You need a solution that has both high-quality images and back-end systems in place to make using those images faster and easier than ever.
It’s time to take a serious look at every step of your creative process. Find out where your holdups are, and where your creatives are wasting time. Because the truth is, the way you create content determines how quickly and how easily you can deliver quality experiences that make an impact on your customers — and your bottom line.
Why do so many companies turn to a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to deliver their online videos, websites, and downloads?
It’s simple: The core benefits of a CDN directly improve customer experiences. End-users get the content they want quickly and
reliably with better quality, wherever they are located. More satisfied customers help the organization increase revenue and

Quality matters, but despite advances made in video streaming technology, delivering great quality live video over the
Internet is still not easy. There are challenges with predicting the scale and potential audience location; challenges with
managing complex encoder and origin technology; challenges of delivering video securely and reliably over the Internet;
and challenges of protecting live streams. Add to that the range of devices, the complexity of live event production, and
the demand for HD and 4K image quality and you get a scenario that is more complicated than ever before.
Video quality can be measured in multiple ways, but the primary metrics – playback reliability and image quality – are
the most critical. Get these right, and content providers are on their way to winning the loyalty of online audiences and
driving monetization. Get them wrong, and viewers will defect in a heartbeat. For live-streaming events, such as sports,
where there’s can’t-miss fast action, the ante is raised even higher.
In this white paper, we’ll explore why online video quality matters and the specifics of how it should be measured. Get
a peek “under the hood” to understand the core elements of video delivery that contribute to high-quality viewing
experiences. Most importantly, see why the choice of a content delivery partner is essential to your online video success.
Online video’s explosive growth has created tremendous new opportunities for engaging
customers and developing new revenue streams. But despite the fact that video is becoming
increasingly central to many online business strategies, many publishers still lack the tools and
data to understand what factors are important in keeping their audiences engaged.
In this whitepaper, we present data from the first ever large-scale scientific study that shows how
video performance quality affects viewer behavior. The results help to shed light on important
considerations that can help businesses craft a successful online video strategy – boosting their
business bottom line and ultimately reaping the rewards of online video’s vast potential.
This paper, which has been jointly developed by Akamai and Wuaki.tv —
an OTT service provider — covers the importance of satisfying viewer
expectations for a broadcast-quality experience by quickly and reliably
streaming video online. It explains why it is challenging to do so and outlines
best practices for online video delivery. It also explores the option of splitting
traffic across multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) versus tightly
integrating video player technology with a single CDN in order to improve
online video delivery in a strategic manner. Finally, the paper shows how
Wuaki.tv chose the latter option and boosted customer retention, customer
referrals, and revenues as a result.

In the past, the production of professional quality corporate videos was delegated to outside agencies. Corporate business units hired marketing firms and video production houses because those outside agencies were the only ones with both the required expertise and the expensive equipment needed to generate high-quality results.
Quantum teamed up with the Communications Media Management Association (CMMA) to survey their members—media production managers from leading enterprises—to learn more about the benefits and challenges of creating video in-house.
Download the eBook, “The Changing Landscape of Corporate Video Production” to get the following questions answered and more:
• Will in-house creative teams continue to ramp up in production?
• What video formats are they currently producing and delivering?
• How are they archiving their content?

6 Billion hours of video are watched EACH MONTH on YouTube .... That's almost 1 HOUR for every person on Earth! There is no denying the power and reach of YouTube. But, are quality issues common with YouTube videos negatively impacting your brand? We investigate.
While holding the promise of HD quality, enriched services, and the benefits of a common packet switched access infrastructure, the adoption of infrastructure-based voice over LTE (VoLTE), along with rich communications such as video and real-time messaging, has stalled over the last few years with concerns around quality, security, and cost. During that time, the value of the phone number as a globally significant user ID and key services such as SMS and MMS have been relegated by phone manufacturers, over the top (OTT) services, and even the subscribers themselves as “technologies of last resort.” Finally, the proliferation of 4G, together with the emergence of network functions virtualization (NFV), powered by Intel®, Hewlett Packard Enterprise* (HPE), and Metaswitch*, is allowing network operators to take charge of the consumer’s communications experience, once more.

42% of consumers make the internet their first stop for healthcare information, ranking the web second to actual physicians. Following this trend, healthcare marketers have increased their investment in a variety of digital advertising channels such as native, video, mobile, content and more in order to better educate and inspire healthcare consumers.
But whatever digital channels healthcare marketers choose, the environment matters. Consumers make snap judgments about brands based on adjacency. Over two-thirds of your audience will feel less favorably towards a brand if its placed next to untrustworthy, offensive, or low-quality content. Fortunately for brands the flip side is also true, which is why it’s imperative that you guarantee ad placements that share digital space with premium content. With Oath’s reputation as a trusted publisher, healthcare brands can experience peace of mind knowing their consumers will make positive associations that will increase brand loyalty.

2018 NSS Labs SD-WAN Group Test
In this report, NSS Labs simulated an enterprise network that has branches connected to a data center through two links: an MPLS line and a commercial broadband connection.
