Organizations in the media and entertainment industry are progressively experimenting with video as they envisage its potential as a communications tool. This, along with the BYOD trend is making Online Video Platforms (OVPs) an indispensable tool to economically deliver video to fast-growing, fragmented video-enabled consumer devices.
The OVP landscape has seen exponential change over the past few years. Today, businesses, and media and entertainment firms are increasingly relying on OVP tools to manage, publish, and monetize video content in a scalable manner. The latest genre of vendors are providing OVP as a fee-based service to host and distribute videos. Multiple SaaS OVP vendors offer hosting, encoding, customizable players, and detailed statistics to help organizations maximize the effectiveness of the video. Furthermore, these OVP vendors provide ancillary services such as player interactivity, viewership statistics, syndication of video to other websites, and hooks to advertising-related services.
