Microsoft launches business video platform

Microsoft has launched Stream, a new business video service that could be useful for charities

| 19th Jul 16

Microsoft has launched Stream, a new business video service that aims to give organisations, such as charities that want to share video internally, the same kind of tools and flexibility that YouTube offers to consumers — but with the benefits of enterprise security tools.

Anyone with a business email address can sign up for the preview in seconds and begin uploading, sharing and tagging videos in their organisation. By taking the “work” out of managing video storage and security, Microsoft Stream enables organisations and their employees to communicate and collaborate with video more easily.

According to Microsoft, video is one of the most powerful ways we connect, communicate and learn today – breaking down geographic boundaries and bringing a distinctly human element to digital interactions. It’s handy then for charities with an international presence or those with workers out in the field.

As the platform evolves Microsoft says it will build in additional features including the ability to deliver corporate broadcasts seamlessly, intelligent video search, tools that enable users to make video part of business apps and workflows, and IT management capabilities.
