In-house and External Corporate Video Streaming Use-Cases
Major MNCs working in departments such as IT, telecommunication, healthcare, etc are using corporate live video streaming internally to help promote corporate culture and build relationships among employees. Such companies often resort to live video sessions for addressing product launches, team meetings, employee training and so on.
1. Video Training for Employees –
Employee training is perhaps the single most primary use case of video for companies. Live video is an effective tool for not only teaching company culture to new hires but also remote team members. These videos not only make the process of onboarding less jittery but they can also be updated and reused by the employer. Each live streaming training session could then become video-on-demand (VOD) content delivered on the enterprise CDN, making future reference and reuse possible.
2. Internal Communication –
Often corporate executives resort to live streaming for communicating company updates to employees. This is a tried and tested way to connect with employees on a more personal level than sending out a company-wide email.

3. Internal Webcasts –
Live webcasts are an important internal communications tool. Almost every company uses it for sharing product information and gaining leads. Internal webcasts can include internal webinars, department updates, product launches, annual meetings, special events, and much more.
Whether it’s the product team giving a live demo of an upcoming launch or the marketing department introducing new product messaging, an internal webcast is an effective way of business communication. These webcasts are often turned into VoD versions and used by companies for easier and continuous access amongst employees.
4. Using Live Video in Product Launches –
Tech biggies like Apple or Google are known for their exciting new product launches through live streaming.
And indeed, product reveal live streams can generate a lot of buzz around new features and releases from big companies. And since a picture is worth more than a thousand words, a live stream is probably invaluable in generating more attention than a newsletter or press release.
Computer giant Apple has been live streaming their product releases globally for years now. The June 2014 product release has been estimated to attract a whopping 20 million viewers!
5. Virtual Conferences and Business Events –
Virtual conferences are a great tool employed by large companies and have been gaining a lot of traction in recent years. Tech biggies, software companies and media houses tend to have a lot of employees and instead of gathering hordes of employees, partners, and customers at a single physical location, such companies often resort to smaller local events. The entire event is then live streamed, and participants generally buy tickets to access the stream.
Similarly, many companies like Salesforce choose to live stream their regular large events. Salesforce streams their annual Dreamforce conference online and you can watch it on YouTube. Such live video streams tend to have a lot of visitors and companies leave no scope for technical glitches.
