Why Alef Video Enablement?

The current video streaming market is fractured and disaggregated. There are different types of video with different use cases used by different people throughout your Enterprises. Independent content companies are building their own applications for internal and external consumption.
This creates industry wide problems that can only be addressed by providing technology solutions to Enterprises, allowing them to focus on what they do best – creating, consuming and using video.
Alef Video Enablement is a next-generation Video Platform. The platform supports all types of video:
  • Video-on-Demand
  • Stream Processing
  • Live Streaming
  • Collaborative Video
  • Video Notifications
  • Interactive Video Messaging
