SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kontiki, the leading provider of enterprise video solutions, expands how enterprises are able to use video to communicate with their employees as part of their latest release. Kontiki was an early pioneer championing the democratization of content with its cloud-based Enterprise Video Platform, which enabled pervasive video throughout every organization. Today, expanding that concept means acknowledging that many businesses are looking for a means to integrate social video within their established enterprise applications.
Kontiki has created multiple options for integrating Kontiki's award winning video delivery technology into third party environments, such as Microsoft SharePoint, or other third party enterprise portals. With its latest release, Kontiki offers:
- RESTful API for direct application integration or custom widget/ web part/ web page development
- Kontiki Video Uploader for easy upload of files into the Kontiki system from an enterprise portal environment
- Kontiki Video Player Designer for generating custom Kontiki Video Players and thousands of potential configurations to fit any portal environment
- Kontiki SharePoint Web Parts for Video Uploader and Video Player Designer
"Kontiki has moved 'Beyond Enterprise YouTube' in the sense that we recognize that many of our customers are not only looking for a dedicated video portal, but additionally they want a video experience throughout their existing enterprise portal environment," said Kevin Crayton, Vice President of Products, Kontiki. "Our integration solutions present customers with a wealth of options for integrating the Kontiki platform into their chosen enterprise portal. We believe in empowering our customers with a multitude of integration and customization options that make sense for their business."
Leading corporations today are looking at how best to engage their workforce with video, as well as how to make adoption within the organization easier. Rather than introducing new tools and portals into the mix, many businesses are increasingly evaluating integration capability as an important factor in choosing a vendor. In their Enterprise You Tube Applications: Democratizing and Managing Streaming Media Content report, Gartner points out that the "ability (and willingness) of vendors to support rich integration with enterprise content management platforms will become a key decision criterion when evaluating enterprise YouTube solutions." Based on a recent survey Melcrum conducted of over 300 internal communicators entitled Maximizing Employee Engagement with Video, 91% of respondents are using a single company-wide employee portal and 68.1% cited easy integration into an existing employee portal as a must-have capability.
