Canned Video brings video recording to the masses

Canned Video provides a complete video recording and streaming solution for video conferences and meetings taking place anywhere around the world. Video recording is a growing trend within enterprise as businesses are increasingly communicating via video conferences, meetings and point-to-point video calls. In just the click of an email, any important video meeting within Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa or the Middle East can be recorded or streamed with just 24 hours notice1.

Recording in MPEG 4 or WMV format for playback on Windows, Apple or other non-Windows systems, the service is bookable via the website www.cannedvideo.com where interested clients simply have to fill in the booking form with their requirements. No additional equipment or technical expertise is needed as Canned Video will handle everything, dialling into a video conference, meeting or presentation, or via the client dialling out to Canned Video. Visual and audio indications inform participants that recording is underway and recorded videos are available to download for 14 days as standard. Recordings can also be viewed via live streaming as the customer requires.

Working remotely allows Canned Video a superior level of flexibility over other video conferencing hardware solutions, integrating seamlessly into any video session, and services can be booked on an ad-hoc or contracted basis. From as little as £50 per hour2, video is recorded in low resolution CIF, standard definition, or 720p high-definition and as all equipment is located in a safe, security-fenced Class 3 Data Centre, captured data is completely safe.

Additionally, Canned Video offers hosted video conferencing, low-cost virtual meeting rooms for up to 25 participants as well as a viewing-on-demand service, with recorded videos viewable for up to a year and beyond if necessary.

Video recording has become an important regulatory issue for several industry sectors and Canned Video offers a stress-free solution. Director Bob Rickwood said: “While regulatory requirements for audio recording are well established, companies within the financial, legal and government sectors are also increasingly being asked to record video meetings for liability protection. We can record video presentations, point-to-point meetings, multipoint conferences and other video conferencing events on a flexible basis and by providing companies with a no-nonsense, low-cost solution, we're perfectly suited for customers requiring video streaming services for up to 50 users at any one time.”

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...
Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production? Can you automatically provide rich data with code-level detail back to the developers when issues occur in production? In his session at DevOps Summit, David Tesar, Microsoft Technical Evangelist on Microsoft Azure and DevOps, will discuss how to accomplish this and more utilizing technologies such as Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio online, and Application Insights in this demo-heavy session.
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
