Kontiki Releases Unprecedented Unified Communications and Collaboration Accelerator

Kontiki, the leading provider of cloud-based enterprise video solutions, today announced the availability of its Kontiki Lync Broadcaster solution, which turns Microsoft Lync into a video broadcasting tool, capable of easily disseminating your most important messages throughout the enterprise. The Kontiki Lync Broadcaster utilizes Kontiki’s powerful delivery technology to ensure flawless live and on-demand video events worldwide within the most popular unified communications and collaboration platform.

To date, Lync has been used primarily for chat and conferencing with only a small number of employees at a time. According to industry analysts, one of the main obstacles preventing enterprise-wide adoption of Microsoft Lync video is its lack of scalability and concerns regarding quality and impact on the network. With the Kontiki Lync Broadcaster, the CEO can now communicate business-critical information via video to all employees at once with just a few clicks. In addition, Kontiki’s Lync Broadcaster enables other leaders in the organization to easily create, manage and deliver high quality video broadcasts to large groups. It’s the only solution that drives simultaneous all-employee adoption of video within the Lync client, while empowering users to leverage compelling video as part of their communication efforts.

The Kontiki Lync Broadcaster serves the dual purpose of extending reach across the enterprise, while deepening collaboration and engagement. Using Kontiki’s unique cloud-based solution, users can easily and efficiently broadcast live, pre-recorded and archived Lync session videos to the largest possible audience, without sacrificing video quality or impacting the network.

“Kontiki is delighted to offer a solution which addresses our customers’ need to integrate with and improve the established unified communications and collaboration platforms,” said Dan Vetras, President and CEO of Kontiki. “The Kontiki Lync Broadcaster combines the proven collaboration features of Lync with our unique video optimization technology to enable any employee to easily create and experience exceptional events.”

The Kontiki Lync Broadcaster builds upon Kontiki’s commitment to offer seamless integration with content management and social collaboration platforms, such as Microsoft SharePoint. With the Kontiki-developed SharePoint Web Parts, users of SharePoint can benefit from Kontiki’s flawless delivery and enhanced media management and publishing capabilities. Whether it’s during or after an event, Kontiki provides a more robust and far-reaching video experience for users of Microsoft platforms.

“Kontiki has taken a giant step forward by offering an enhanced video experience within the unified communications and collaboration platform space,” said Bill Haskins, senior analyst covering Unified Communications and Collaboration at Wainhouse Research. “The Kontiki Lync Broadcaster addresses a crucial market need for a high quality and scalable enterprise video solution – while increasing the inherent productivity benefits that come with Microsoft’s industry-leading UC platform.”

Kontiki will be participating as a sponsor and speaker at the upcoming Wainhouse Research UC&C Summit. Attend and visit our booth to learn more about the Kontiki difference.
