By: Steve Vonder Haar

When it comes to streaming, I’m something of nostalgia curmudgeon.

Rather than ruminating on the past, my preference is to focus on the future. And while we’ve seen great progress in the adoption of online video (and the range of streaming solutions that makes online video more useful) in the past decade, I’m much more excited about the impact that streaming will have on business communications in the next 10 years.

That’s why it’s time to re-visit a topic ...

As much as we would like to think otherwise, there is no free lunch in the world of online video.

Yes, it would be wonderful to tap into technology that makes it possible to wave a magic wand and make all of our video distribution troubles disappear. Maybe you’d even have time left over in your day to have a friend take you out to a long, leisurely lunch. Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works down in ...

The Pursuit of Simplified Webcast Production

Posted by:

By: Steve Vonder Haar

Meeting the demand for simplified webcast production has been the holy grail for streaming technology developers for years.

Leading vendors continually work to boil complex features out of their platform solutions.

By: Steve Vonder Haar

When designing a streaming solution, it’s not a bad idea to know a thing or two about human nature.

Truth be told, many of us are absent-minded. Others don’t want to mess up their day fiddling with hard-to-use technology. And still others are just plain lazy.

There’s nothing wrong with that, of course. We all have our own shortcomings. Unfortunately, the success of a significant streaming investment may just boil down to designing a solution around our common failings.

Good software has made it easy for all of us to take good graphic design for granted.

Even the most basic publishing tools make it easy to weave text, photos and graphics together to create great-looking brochures, white papers and other documents.

Of course, we all should be more than accustomed to seeing documents that blend multiple inputs into a single effective messaging vehicle. After all, the first mainstream “desktop publishing” software that put advanced design capabilities into the ...
