The modern corporate workplace has become significantly more dispersed over the last few decades, as enterprises now often have multiple office locations across multiple states, or countries. In addition, remote workers and telework initiatives are much more commonplace. These changes, along with dramatically evolving web-based technologies, have changed the way we communicate, educate, market, and advertise in a corporate environment. We interact on a more global basis, expanding the definition of “our office” beyond just the actual office walls.
Take a look at traditional corporate training and education for example. In the past, employees had to either travel to third-party education centers or have a trainer came to their facility. Although this still occurs today, very few of the training sessions from years past were recorded and edited for use at a future date. But today, massive amounts of information is available at our fingertips. If you have a group of new hires that need training, no problem, just let them view the approved online corporate training videos, safety procedures, product training, and much more.
In regards to company-wide communications, in the past, if you missed the CEO’s annual company address, you had to get information about it by talking to others that attended. Not anymore. With high-resolution cameras readily available at reasonable cost, corporate communications can be easily recorded for on-demand viewing, or for re-use in other communications assets, employee training, or marketing efforts.
Finally, as a consumer, think about how you prefer to get information about a company or a product these days. Just watch a video, right? Within minutes, we can find the video content we are looking for on channels like YouTube, or on corporate websites and their social channels and learn all we need to make our decisions.
Today, modern organizations often need to produce large amounts of high-quality content to meet ever-growing corporate video requirements. Many are considering creating their in-house media production infrastructure for the first time; others might already using traditional SAN infrastructures, which can be costly and complicated to scale in order to meet more demanding production and storage requirements. Whether an enterprise is thinking of creating a new media and storage infrastructure, or needs to refresh its current system, the process and options can be much simpler and lower cost than you would think!
