Enterprise video is increasingly being recognized by industry experts, such as Gartner, as an important strategic technology. Accordingly, the Expression Encoder and IIS Media Services Team attended the new Business Video Expo, part of ITEXPO East 2011. The event included about 180 exhibitors and attracted nearly 8,000 attendees, 80% of whom were executives.
Microsoft exhibited with Accordent Technologies, a partner that has developed an automated software-based video creation, management, publishing, and delivery platform leveraging Microsoft infrastructure in the enterprise, including SharePoint, Lync, Windows Server, IIS, Windows Media Services, Silverlight, and Expression Encoder.
The team participated in conference panel discussions on topics ranging from mobile delivery to YouTube in the enterprise (videos of those panels coming soon), and IIS Media Services senior product manager Chris Knowlton was recorded doing both an in-booth Expression Encoder / IIS / iPad demo and an on-site interview with Steve Vonder Haar.
Additionally, both Microsoft and Accordent were recipients of Best in Show awards - Expression Encoder was awarded Most Innovative Product and Accordent received Best Enterprise Solution. Congrats to the team!
Microsoft and Accordent recently participated in a webinar to talk about how the companies are addressing the challenges of deploying video in the enterprise. To view the archived content, please login here.
