Enterprise Video: Chat Integration Module

Enterprise Video: Chat Integration Module

Looking for an enterprise video chat integration for internal communications? IBM Cloud Video and Ustream are launching a new chat feature for use with both Streaming Manager for Enterprise and Ustream Align.

This new feature, which limits access to authorized viewers through either SSO (Single Sign-On) or email authorization, allows for viewers to engage in realtime and participate with one another while watching internal video content. This feature works with both live and on-demand content and is compatible across desktops and mobile devices, including over the IBM Cloud Video for Enterprise App.


Mazda video case study: Driving 100x more viewers to a product launch using IBM Cloud Video

A new Mazda video case study shows how live video can achieve spectacular results.

A big hook for Mazda is the appeal of its designs. The Mazda Miata, for instance, has become  the best-selling two-seater open sports car of all time. The Mazda design philosophy is called “Soul of Motion”, and it seeks to capture “the power and elegance of a wild animal in the instant when it pounces on its prey.”


Manage Temporary Passwords for Video Encoder Access

Manage Temporary Passwords for Video Encoder Access

Looking for a way to manage temporary passwords that could be used for live video encoder access? IBM Cloud Video have rolled out a feature that allows account managers to create passwords that can be used by encoding software, encoding hardware and mobile apps for the purpose of broadcasting. These passwords, set permanently or on a temporary basis, are managed directly from the platform by account managers and access can be revoked at any time.

Please note, while this feature presents an alternative way to access these encoders from a Ustream account, it is mandatory for IBM Cloud Video accounts, including Streaming Manager and Streaming Manager for Enterprise, to access these encoders in this new way. This is because login details associated with an IBM Cloud Video account can not be used to directly login to an encoder. Consequently, these device passwords are required to login to compatible encoders and apps.
