Many of the world’s largest companies leverage the Qumu platform for their video-based assets, including Visa, Lloyds Banking Group, MasterCard, KPMG, Vodafone, CVS, Aviva, Liberty Mutual, Toyota, Bayer and many more. The company has a global footprint with offices in London, Munich, San Francisco, Minneapolis and Hyderabad. 

The Qumu Technology

Qumu offers a scalable and extensible video platform that can streamline the creation, management, and delivery of videos across existing enterprise collaboration and social business tools. The Qumu platform seamlessly integrates with Skype for Business, SharePoint, Yammer, IBM Connections and WebEx, empowering any user to turn any interaction into a valuable and accessible video asset. Live streaming or on demand, the Qumu platform turns video into an always-on resource that connects thousands of employees and stakeholders across the enterprise, with a touch of a button.

In terms of configurations, the Qumu platform manages video content within a company’s firewall, outside of it, or both through a hybrid option. In the first case, video content is directly delivered to in-house users over the LAN. As for external communication, the Qumu platform takes videos streaming on public broadcast and moves them into Qumu’s firewall, so they can be communicated from a licensed environment to a large number of users. At the heart of Qumu’s high-performance video platform is a smart Content Delivery Network (CDN) device called Pathfinder which allows organisations to configure and optimise video content for their mobile users, specific departments, and various endpoints.

Also adding value to the Qumu platform are desktop-based tools and apps that come with a full spectrum of video editing capabilities. With the help of these tools, users can produce a desktop or mobile video, edit it and finally publish it through a channel to a selected audience. At the same time, Qumu also ensures secure access to videos, channels, or administrative functions while indexing all the videos to make them easily searchable.
