Ramp Releases Enhanced VideoVerge™ for SharePoint Platform

Leading Video Content Management Platform for SharePoint® Gains New Features, Supports SharePoint 2016

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 22, 2016) - Ramp, the leading provider of next-generation video management and delivery solutions for large enterprises, today announced new enhancements to its Ramp VideoVerge™ for SharePoint platform that help enterprises gain more business value from their video content, while empowering SharePoint users to communicate more productively than ever before.

The company also renamed its SharePoint product line. Ramp VideoVerge for SharePoint, which uniquely combines self-service live webcasting and video management on a single, converged, cloud-based platform, includes two products: VideoVerge™ Manager, previously named Ramp Video Management; and VideoVerge™ Live, previously named Ramp Video Live.

"As enterprises generate more live and on-demand video for sales training, executive communications, corporate learning and development, and marketing, SharePoint managers need a video content management capability designed to handle all their needs that is completely native within their standard SharePoint environment," said Stephen Blankenship, Ramp's Vice President of Product and Operations. "Ramp VideoVerge for SharePoint is the only scalable, enterprise-class platform that is native to Microsoft SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2016, and built for the cloud."

Corporate IT and SharePoint managers recognize the importance of search for the productivity of business users. VideoVerge makes video as available, searchable and shareable in SharePoint as any other piece of enterprise content. Ramp's patented technology automatically transcribes all video content and creates time-coded metadata so users can even search for a single phrase in the middle of a video.

New VideoVerge Features

SharePoint 2016 Compatibility. The Ramp VideoVerge for SharePoint platform is native to Microsoft SharePoint Online, SharePoint 2013 and now SharePoint 2016.

Import From Any Source: To address the proliferation of video sources across the enterprise, VideoVerge now supports the ability to automatically and programmatically import video libraries from any source, in any format and publish them as SharePoint documents.

Automated Multi-Language Translation. Most videos are produced in a single language, but the global work force is multi-lingual. VideoVerge has been enhanced with automated multi-language translation and closed captioning that is the fastest and most efficient available. Users simply choose the language captioning they want for any given video.

Live Chat. For live webcasts in SharePoint, VideoVerge Live now integrates an interactive user view utilizing Yammer and other familiar Microsoft tools so hosts can engage participants throughout the session -- all managed using SharePoint's built-in features.

About VideoVerge Manager and VideoVerge Live
VideoVerge Manager makes video as searchable as text-based content and watchable across multiple desktop and mobile devices using SharePoint. Designed for the cloud, VideoVerge Manager ensures fast, cost-effective deployment, while SharePoint's enterprise-grade security protects sensitive content.

VideoVerge Live provides true self-service webcasting from within SharePoint, without the need for IT assistance, no matter how large or dispersed the audience.
