Videos are redefining organization-wide communication structures and have risen to become the new business standard.

 

The Engaged Employees Report by Entrepreneur Magazine states that live videos drive 31% higher productivity and 37% higher sales. Regardless of distance or time zones, a simple video or conversation could spark new ideas and create unique collaborative experiences.

 

The advent of next-generation content tools and media solutions is allowing users to connect and share information from any device seamlessly. Organizations are becoming more connected and informed by applying new techniques that ensure clear, consistent, and accessible communication with everyone. They are redefining communication strategies and are using advanced technologies to bring together various end-points and build collaborative environments to improve their output.

 

An advantage of embracing such audio-visual approaches to communicate presents a highly personalized way to reach the desired audience while making knowledge sharing more enjoyable. Let's explore this immersive approach to support company-wide communication, training, maintenance, and sales.

 

Humanize video for enterprise-wide communications

 

Audio-visual communication or immersive videos are undoubtedly more impactful than text and still images. From individual teams to the entire organization and beyond, immersive videos could be used to communicate large pieces of information in a concise and impactful manner.

 

Whether it is sales training activities or leadership announcements, being able to see and hear a person will increase user engagement with the content. Also, using a video will encourage instantaneous distribution and diffusion via various digital channels to a wide range of audience. 

 

HARMAN realizes the potential here and brings a product that addresses such use cases - the HARMAN® Media Suite. This easy-to-use platform utilizes the existing video infrastructure to reach many viewers with immersive webcasts and recorded video assets. One of the many advantages of this technology is its ability to provide organizations with streaming scalability while incurring very little expense.
