Does your organization require the services of a best of breed CDN such as Akamai, Limelight, or Level3, or would those needs be better served by a reseller of one of these services?  Online video platforms such as Brightcove and Ooyala present a viable alternative that offer the scalable distribution services of a CDN packaged with sophisticated content management and publishing tools, but there are other options as well.

If website metrics are to be followed, Ooyala may have taken a serious bite out of OVP front runner Brightcove's market share.  The following graph from Compete.com supports this conclusion:

 

 

But Brightcove and Ooyala are not the only providers worthy of consideration.  There are many OVP's to choose from, most of them offering comparable services and flexible packages.  Among these is Kaltura, a very unique OVP.  In addition to the services of a robust OVP, Kaltura also offers a totally free opensource version of its platform.  Prior to this model, content producers looking to publish their rich media were forced to choose between the very expensive option of building their own solution, and the uncertainty-laden option of locking in with the vendor of a proprietary solution.  As their website indicates, Kaltura "breaks this build-vs.-buy conundrum" and offers the compelling third alternative to self-host a ready-built open-source solution.  Contact us to find out more.
