Chances are, your company has a video library, but it’s on a shelf somewhere instead of online. The cost of managing and hosting videos in house has held many companies back. And while sites like YouTube and Vimeo are free, do you really want to post your company earnings call video next to the latest animal sensation on the internet (spaghetti cat, anyone?).
Now you can host and share videos on your own domain with Google Video for business. The latest edition to the Google Apps family gives companies, both big and small, the power to stream high-quality video on their own site – no redirects or links to outside sources needed. And regardless of technical expertise, anyone in your organization can upload and share videos through the application.
Google Video is available through the Premier edition, which costs $50 per user per year. Each user account comes with 3GB of video storage. Just as with YouTube, viewers can add tags, comments, or ratings to video content. Administrators have the ability to make videos public or private access. So whether it’s corporate training videos or your next advertising piece, you choose what videos employees can access.
Unlike YouTube, Google Video gives you improved streaming quality and complete control over your own content. Google is currently offering a free 30-day trial of their Premier Apps edition, so the question is – is your company ready for its closeup?
