In the US, video technology provider and measurement specialist Qumu has released an advanced analytics feature for its video management platform, through which clients can analyze and display real-time network and usage data.
Qumu develops tools to create, manage and measure the success of live streaming video and video on demand (VOD) for the enterprise. The new tool, Qumu Advanced Analytics, also provides organizations with real-time visibility into employee engagement and the overall end-user experience, for both forms of video. It offers alerts for issues with buffering, bit rate and latency across internal networks, VPNs (virtual private networks) and external CDNs (content delivery networks). In addition, visual dashboards can be set up to monitor network performance by operating system, device type, browser, channel and individual user.
Vern Hanzlik (pictured), President and CEO, comments: 'Video is a unique content type from an analytics perspective, because in terms of sheer size and bandwidth it can cripple your network if not properly monitored. But at the same time, video lends itself to the collection of micro-level usability statistics that can directly affect organizational profitability. Qumu Advanced Analytics provides IT and business leaders with actionable insights at both the network and the user level'.
