What is a video platform?

A video platform is a software based platform, which is easy to apply for sharing and distributing videos. Educational institutions and businesses use such a solution also known as a VCMS (Video Content Management Solution) for a secure hosting of the organization’s videos. A more advanced video platform also offers functions such as an online recorder and an opportunity to take notes, including quizzes and automatic generating of subtitles etc. 

At Viducon we have many years of experience selling this platform, which according to our opinion is the best video platform for application of education and training of employees. A video platform like Panopto provides you an advanced solution, which supports the needs a modern educational institution or business may have in regards to management of video material.

Different types of video platforms

Youtube and Facebook are perfect social media platforms for uploading of videos, which are displayed on a channel. This is a fast and cheap way to share videos with many people, but not necessarily the safest way. For marketing there are video platforms such as Brightcove and TwentyThree. These platforms are suitable for marketing and ideal, if the purpose of the platform is marketing and lead generation.
