Creating and Preserving Corporate Culture
Creating and preserving corporate culture
Distributed organizations are using the intimacy of video to help create and preserve corporate culture, which is particularly important in these turbulent times. They are finding that video Webcasting is a far more compelling way to communicate inside and outside their organizations. An increasing number of studies have shown that body language and facial expressions greatly enhance the impact and retention of a spoken message.
Organizations can incorporate live and on-demand IP video into their communications mix either by purchasing a premises-based platform or by adopting a Web-based software as a service (SAAS) model. Either way, the solution elements are the same: a software portal to manage and view the rich media content, encoding and distribution technology to capture and transmit the video stream, record and store devices for on-demand content consumption, and decoding software and hardware to view the video on PCs, TV displays and portable devices.
