The app is designed to enable more ways for easy video creation and sharing as part of group chats. It helps Kaltura customers make use video for communication and collaboration on Teams. As a result, colleagues will now have another option to easily record, capture their screen, upload and share videos, and even present and watch live webcasts that display beautifully on any device, anywhere, all within the Teams environment.
“This new video chat application complements our broad video communications suite of solutions that includes video emails, large scale live video webcasts, and now video chat messages, that are easy to use and deploy either as stand-alone products, or integrated within existing communication systems and workflows,” said Dr. Michal Tsur, Kaltura Co-founder, President & General Manager – Enterprise & Learning. “We are all used to easily sharing visual video content in our personal chats, and now we make it just as easy to use Kaltura video as part of online chats and team collaboration at work. We are excited to bring our video tools into the Microsoft Teams ecosystem.”
