In just the click of an email, any important video meeting within Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa or the Middle East can be recorded or streamed with just 24 hours notice1.

Recording in MPEG 4 or WMV format for playback on Windows, Apple or other non-Windows systems, the service is bookable via the website where interested clients simply have to fill in the booking form with their requirements. No additional equipment or technical expertise is needed as Canned Video will handle everything, dialling into a video conference, meeting or presentation, or via the client dialling out to Canned Video.

We can record video presentations, point-to-point meetings, multipoint conferences and other video conferencing events on a flexible basis and by providing companies with a no-nonsense, low-cost solution, we're perfectly suited for customers requiring video streaming services for up to 50 users at any one time.”

Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers.
