We live in an era where video is being live-streamed, recorded and is rapidly becoming our primary source for learning something new. Leading corporations and education institutions have amazing opportunities to harness the power of video to advance their message, improve collaboration, expand business opportunities and educate the masses.
Sandia National Laboratories employs nearly 9,000 scientists, engineers, biologists and support staff, who work on projects related to the nation’s most challenging security issues. Over the years, they’ve amassed thousands of hours of video-based technical documentation, training and research. The content – much of which was created on outdated devices and exists in all sorts of formats – needs to be preserved for up to 75 years and meet the National Archives and Records Administration standards.
Just when you’ve got your AV plan nailed down for the boardrooms, meeting rooms and training rooms, there’s a new trend taking hold to supplement the work your employees do – a dramatic shift toward BYOD (bring your own device) and consumerization. While employees have been using personal devices in the office since the first calculator, they’ve never been as functional, collaborative, personal or ubiquitous as they are now. And workers have never been more tech-savvy.

Think technology could streamline the manpower it takes to put your courses online? Even automate it? You're in good company.
Tom Kemp and his team at Ashland University thought the same thing, particularly in light of the increasing demand by nontraditional students for on-demand learning.
Why would one of the nation’s oldest independent law schools decide to host all their content – now more than 5,700 class recordings – outside their network? Because it was more cost-efficient, that’s why.
But they didn’t start out thinking that way. In fall 2009, New York Law School opened a new, state-of-the-art academic building in Manhattan’s TriBeCa district. When it came online, the building was fully equipped for webcasting in every single classroom, from every day lectures to conferences to special events.
Think lecture capture technology is only good for one thing – capturing course lectures? The Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota says think again. Every day they use webcasting technology in the classroom and beyond – from fully online courses and executive education archives to live streaming for special events and webinars advertising their upcoming course offerings.
It’s probably not a surprise they’re the school that brought you the "4Ps of marketing" and launched the field of Management Information Systems.
