Qumu Announces Video Optimization Pack for Citrix
San Bruno, CA – May 14, 2015 – Qumu (NASDAQ: QUMU), the leading business video platform provider, today announced the Video Optimization Pack for Citrix.
Industry-leading enterprise video platform enhances delivery capabilities to Citrix environments
Delivering high performance video to Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDIs) has long been a difficulty for organizations wanting to bring the power of video to employees on distributed VDIs. Qumu has developed a solution for these issues with the Video Optimization Pack for Citrix by providing integrations with Citrix VDI and XenApp infrastructures, enabling endpoints under management to request and play highest quality streaming video.
The Video Optimization Pack for Citrix connects Citrix VDI and XenApp servers to Qumu’s Video Control Center. Through the Video Control Center, organizations can easily take advantage of the industry-leading enterprise video feature set that makes capture, management and delivery of live and on demand video easy for everyone. Qumu provides optimized video for executive communications, sales enablement, regulatory training, and other needs for enterprises demanding both live and on-demand video but unable to provide it given limitations with regard to formats, bit rates and infrastructure.
Whether an organization has thin clients, thick clients or even mobile devices among users that need to see video, Qumu’s Video Optimization Pack for Citrix ensures that appropriate formats and bit rates for videos are streamed to any endpoint, anywhere across the globe. Qumu provides easy–to-configure rules and policies to determine the appropriate video delivery paths and makes creating video workflows from capture all the way through consumption a simple process.
Video improves learning and understanding, and enterprises are eager to adopt video to deliver key messages and content. Many regulated industries with a need for virtual desktop services deploy Citrix infrastructure across a mix of client and server architectures that make it difficult to implement and manage global video. Qumu’s Video Optimization Pack for Citrix works with those architectures to enable video delivery everyplace while providing social feedback, video delivery performance information, and analytics that are key to an organization’s understanding the effectiveness of their video communications.
“We’re extending our integration with Citrix to make it easier to bring video anywhere within an organization,” says Qumu President, Vern Hanzlik, “helping organizations improve their communications with employees, partners and customers around the globe is at the core of what we do at Qumu. By optimizing video delivery to Citrix infrastructures, we’re giving enterprises more tools they need to do just that.”
