Video streaming combines several advanced technologies needed to achieve the goal of delivering video to the end-user. To be successful at streaming, understanding of the following topics is required: local area networking, wide area networking, codec specifications for delivery to different devices, adaptive streaming, server management, content delivery networks, video production, content management, talent management, governance, compliance, and more. With Jolokia you will be able to successfully navigate all of the above technologies in order to make your video event a success.
We Care! Bottom line, Jolokia is your partner and we really care about your success. We are here every step of the way from design to testing and production; whether you use our self-service streaming platform or whether we manage your event for you. We have all the video and network expertise needed to help you succeed. Our development team can customize the solution to each customer’s and partners’ specific needs. We have a unique combination of on-line video platform technology, in-depth webcasting and streaming expertise.
Jolokia founders and engineering staff have been in the network and video space since the beginning of the streaming days and even longer in the enterprise IT space. We are trusted by companies like Chase, Toyota/Lexus, Georgia Tech, Northrup Grumman and Merck to help design and set-up enterprise streaming infrastructures. This includes Media Management, Global asset distribution, Multicast and production workflows. Our engineers are methodical and conduct deep dive technical interviews with all stakeholders in the company to get a complete picture of the needs and issues before making any design recommendations.
We live for POC’s! As an independent 3rd party, we can be part of your team and manage the POC on your behalf. Jolokia knows how to look deep under the hood to provide you with all the information you need to make the right decision. Once you have your requirements and have chosen a vendor or vendors, Jolokia can help you build out your test bed and conduct the end-user testing. We will liaise with the vendors, score the solutions based on the user cases and document the outcome for you.
Writing and managing an RFP process starts with the formulation of the requirements for the streaming video infrastructure. This includes the desired features of the Video Platform, Scope of Work, Architecture, Network and IT integration, all the way up to the scoring of the requirements. We have been involved in numerous large scale RFP’s for vendor selection.
Sometimes current networks –LAN and WAN- need to be augmented to facilitate high quality video streams. We can help your IT staff find the best solutions to get to the quality you need without breaking your budgets. There are many ways to distribute video to internal and external users, and we will help you find and test the best methods for your organization.
We often get called in when there are problems with streaming video. Sometimes these problems are related to servers, sometimes they are due to network issues and sometimes they are workflow issues. With our vast technical experience we are usually able to find the problems and make recommendations faster than if you would troubleshoot the issue solely with the vendor.
Do you want to make sure your system will actually deliver the performance the vendor says? Why take the chance and wait until that first large event? We can build internal and external testing rigs to really stress test every aspect of your infrastructure to find the weak link before your end-user does.
There is not a single best way to manage production workflows, from capture, ingest, distribution and playback. We can help you to find the most efficient way to manage this process by recommending new technologies or more efficient methods.
Many IT managers are confronted with requests for a corporate “Youtube”. What is the best product for your company, and who will install it and integrate it? These are questions we hear every day and there is no standard answer. We have expertise with all the big vendors like Polycom, Qumu, Sonic Foundry and Vbrick. We will help you decide what the best product is to fit your needs. And of course we can then work with the vendor to test and implement that product.
Project management is essential to the successful execution of any streaming video project. Our Project Manager will work together with your team to ensure that the required business benefits are delivered.
