Searching for the Right Webcasting Solution Can Make End Users Feel Like Goldilocks

Goldilocks must have grown up to be a video engineer.
At least that’s all one can surmise in scanning the set of video capture devices and software available to organizations looking to produce and distribute more business-oriented rich media content via streaming platforms.
Just as Goldilocks discovered in her encounters with The Three Bears, you may have to do some experimenting before settling on a solution that is “just right.”
Certainly, most people who have worked on creating video content can attest that there are platforms being sold in today’s market that are simply “too hard” to be useful. While it’s great to have devices that can capture video in any resolution, store it in any size and then automatically transcode it into a viable format for streaming, it can be overwhelming for an average user to leverage some advanced capture solutions because of the sheer complexity of setting them up.
