Kontiki Redefines “YouTube for the Enterprise” with Launch of Kontiki MediaCenter

Kontiki, the leading provider of enterprise video solutions, debuted today the Kontiki MediaCenter enterprise video portal, reaffirming their longstanding commitment to furthering enterprise video usage. Since the 2009 launch of Kontiki VideoCenter, the market’s first “YouTube for the Enterprise,” Kontiki has consistently delivered high quality video and increased engagement across the enterprise. Kontiki MediaCenter builds on this foundation to deliver a first-to-market, cloud-based enterprise video portal offering with integrated live and on-demand video options and a user-friendly interface, designed specifically for the unique needs of the enterprise, both business and IT. As the name implies, Kontiki MediaCenter is capable of handling any type of media, including video, audio, RSS feeds, and more.

Kontiki MediaCenter offers a number of key “must-have” features and benefits that make it attractive for today’s enterprise deployment, including:

  • Full Range of Video Options – Offers video on demand, in addition to live event provisioning and viewing, serving both private and public content.
  • Interactive User Experience – Streamlined usage flows in a responsive design offering a full range of must-have social features, such as sharing, rating, flagging and commenting. Easily create custom versions to fit your brand and user interaction needs.
  • Robust Enterprise Controls – Includes strong user authentication, single sign on (SSO), integration, access, and moderation controls—all based on best-of-breed security standards.
  • Powerful Content Management – Accepts all major video and document formats for storage and distribution. Enables easy content embedding, swapping, tagging, and trimming.
  • Built-in Enterprise Content Delivery Network – The Kontiki ECDN ensures efficient utilization of existing corporate network, with no hardware or bandwidth investment.
  • Actionable Analytics – In-depth viewership data presented graphically with drill-down capabilities.
  • Flexible Integration Services – Extensible platform offers rich REST API for enhanced integration capabilities with third party providers.
  • Desktop and Mobile Support – 100% cloud-based solution runs inside a web browser, supporting PC and Mac browsers, as well as a range of tablets and smartphones.

“We are proud to offer a truly compelling enterprise video portal in our Kontiki MediaCenter,“ said Dan Vetras, President and CEO of Kontiki. “We were the first to offer a 'YouTube for the Enterprise,' but we didn’t rest there. We listened to our customers and the market and after four successful years of enterprise portal commitment, we are proud to roll out an innovative solution that speaks to the unique needs of the video-enabled enterprise.”

Kontiki MediaCenter also enables enterprises to move “Beyond YouTube” to fully embrace a distributed workforce. While Kontiki MediaCenter offers traditional portal ease of use and engagement, its robust API enables simple integration with any established social enterprise software. As a result, employee access to video becomes pervasive. Video can be experienced though a centralized enterprise video portal or through integration with any third party software. Kontiki MediaCenter provides the flexibility to grow with your enterprise video usage needs.

"Video is arguably the most sticky medium of communication and is becoming a strategic imperative for organizations across all verticals to fully embrace. In order to realize the value proposition and be truly immersed in a video culture, a successful organization needs to make video a seamless part of its corporate life," says Mukul Krishna, Senior Global Director for Digital Media at Frost & Sullivan. "Employees should be able to experience live and on demand enterprise video anywhere and at any time, just as they are now used to in their everyday lives outside work. Kontiki MediaCenter makes it easy for organizations to offer pervasive engagement through video."
