Ustream, Inc. Key Developments

IBM Reportedly in Talks to Buy Ustream

Ustream Launches Ustream Demand, Only Video Marketing Platform Enabling Both Live and On-Demand Video Lead Capture

Ustream launched Ustream Demand, the only video marketing platform enabling both live and on-demand video lead capture. Combined with LiveAd (Ustream's live or pre-recorded video advertising delivery solution), Ustream Demand is also the only video marketing platform to offer a means of generating a targeted audience. Ustream Demand and Ustream LiveAd enable marketers to generate higher quality leads at a lower customer acquisition cost than traditional non-video marketing solutions. Before Ustream Demand, marketers have had to use a collection of cumbersome and disparate technologies to create, manage and distribute live video content. And the process of capturing and publishing on-demand videos required another set of tools, often delaying the distribution of recorded on-demand videos for hours or even days after a live streamed event, robbing marketers of the ability to use the video while the content is still fresh. Finally, using a mash-up of tools makes it difficult to get a clear picture of how live and on-demand content performed. Ustream Demand is designed to solve these problems. Designed to complement marketing automation solutions, Ustream Demand is built on the company's award-winning cloud-based software platform that delivers high-definition live and on-demand video over the industry's most scalable, reliable network.
