A video content management system or CMS offers organizations of all sizes a range of benefits, including organization, access, and storage. These benefits make video and other media content available 24/7 to employees located anywhere, from their homes, offices, or even a hotel room. In today’s global educational and business world, making media available easily and conveniently is essential.

Consider the top ten benefits of a video CMS for your organization:

  1. Simplicity
    Using a video CMS limits the amount of training required for staff and users, and enables everyone to access information, regardless of technical skills.
  2. Access Levels
    A video CMS enables the organization to set specific roles or access levels to information and to customize who can see specific media files. This increases security, and offers the ability to share content with either a broader or a more limited audience. 
  3. Cloud-based Storage
    Cloud-based storage provides a video solution that is fully expandable; if you need more space for video storage, there is no need to invest in new hardware or systems. 
  4. Large File Management
    Most systems are not designed to manage large files. A video CMS, on the other hand, has been specifically designed for just that purpose. 
  5. Security
    A video CMS is the ideal way to secure all types of media content. Multiple security features enable you to protect sensitive data. 
  6. Searchability
    A well-designed video CMS, like the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform, provides multiple means of searching organizational video content, including captions, slide content, and metadata.
  7. Organization
    In order to make use of video and media content, users must be able to find content quickly and easily. A well-organized video CMS provides multi-level organization, folders, and sub-folders to store videos and other media. 
  8. Optimization
    Video content needs to be available to users on a variety of platforms, including mobile devices. A video content management system optimizes content for playback on multiple platforms. 
  9. Accessibility
    A video CMS makes maintaining accessibility, including Section 508 Compliance, a simple process. Captioning, audio descriptions and keyboard controls facilitate video use in a range of situations and for various needs. 
  10. Affordability
    Expanding existing hardware and staff to meet the needs of video storage, delivery and organization is costly. Opting to use a software-based tool to meet these needs reduces investment in both hardware and staff.
