Fire-and-Forget Video Production
By Steve Vonder Haar, Senior Analyst Enterprise Webcasting & Streaming, Wainhouse Research, LLC
Creating streaming video can be such a hassle sometimes.
Setting up cameras. Adjusting audio feeds. Getting the lighting just right. There’s a lot of work that goes into making presenters look presentable. Indeed, it’s fair to say that one of the biggest barriers to getting organizations to use video more frequently is the sheer challenge that can be associated with creating quality video content in the first place.
So the task for executives evangelizing the use of streaming in the enterprise is pretty obvious: Make it easy for employees to create video, and they’re likely to use the technology more often.
Simple and Flexible, Rolled Into One
Creating quality content doesn’t have to be difficult or require a lot of manpower. Cbox, the production studio in a box, automates video capture and delivery with its recording scheduler and auto-publishing features.
The compact appliance can be hidden from view and tucked away in a lectern or mounted in a rack. With fewer things to worry about, presenters can focus on delivering engaging presentations, freeing up time for AV personnel so they can be more productive.
The award-winning appliance is flexible enough to be operated headless or manually with its touch-enabled interface. For users who prefer to be hands-on and add extra flair to video production, Cbox also has you covered.
Even non-technical users can take advantage of programmable, single-click presets to switch among video cameras, document cameras, computers and other devices during a presentation or live event. Take rich content to the next level by incorporating various mixes, sources, and camera views into your video.
For rich media capture and delivery, Cbox puts you in the driver’s seat; the next step is deciding whether to take full control or set it to cruise control.

Cbox can publish content automatically to any content management or video management system. Its open-ended architecture allows for integration with third-party systems of your choice. This means you’re free to choose a video management service that best fits your needs while getting high-quality video capture.
