Report Recognizes the Strength of Company’s Tablet-Based Video Platform for Offline Learning
Denver, CO – <March 6, 2015> – PlayerLync, the first automatic video and document delivery and download platform for tablets, today announced that it has been ranked as an Innovator in the Aragon Research Globe™ for Enterprise Learning, 2015, highlighting the strength of its mobile video collaboration tools.
The Aragon Research report evaluates current technology and service providers that allow an enterprise to manage and deliver all forms of learning while supporting the social, mobile, and video experience users want.
“We are witnessing a learning revolution that is fueled by unprecedented user access to video-based content,” said Jim Lundy, CEO and lead analyst at Aragon Research. “Innovators such as PlayerLync have risen to meet the demand for a truly mobile solution that accelerates learning and leverages the unique power of video collaboration.”
“We are thrilled to be included as an Innovator in the Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Learning,” said Bob Paulsen, CEO and co-founder of PlayerLync. “Every week, our platform automatically and securely pushes and pulls terabytes of data to and from our customers’ sleeping tablets, providing value and scalability to companies that need immediate, mobile access to content and a way to easily share and receive feedback on videos and documents across the enterprise.”
On average per month, a PlayerLync customer transfers 40,000 GB of content and 100,000 files and saves 4,000 hours of download time. PlayerLync powers video and document delivery to tablets for leading enterprises such as Chipotle, Red Robin, Bridgestone, and teams in the NFL, MLB, and NBA that need to keep their distributed workforce current and consistent.
PlayerLync offers features such as:
Automatic content delivery to tablets — even while sleeping: Content distributors simply drag and drop video or document files into folders, and PlayerLync automatically compresses and downloads them to every tablet in the field, which means end users never have to retrieve files and always have access to the latest content, even while they are offline or their tablets are resting.
Enterprise video delivery + management: With built-in automatic compression, videos are reduced to 3 percent of original file size while maintaining HD resolution, which decreases the amount of bandwidth required for the automatic downloading, eliminates streaming and buffering, and increases how much content can be stored on each individual tablet.
Collaboration + communication tools: End users and learners can communicate with their managers and teachers, annotate directly on videos and documents, and use their tablets’ built-in video camera to capture, compress, and securely share best practices.
Security + simplicity: Enterprise-level security, automatic content wiping, and 256-bit encryption ensures sensitive content is never compromised, and intuitive administrative tools make it easy to control content and track activity at organization, group, and user levels.
