The main criteria required by Hill Tribe for the ideal video platform was primarily efficiency – a delivery network that would enable fast download of the films the company produced to the end user.
London, UK - May 19, 2011 – vzaar, (http://www.vzaar.com ) one of the world’s leading online video platforms for business and eCommerce video, today announced that they have been selected by the respected British video and TV production company Hill Tribe Productions (http://www.hilltribe.tv) as their online video platform of choice for web video hosting. Hill Tribe is recognized as an expert marketing and communication strategy development firm for clients such as Baco, Plymouth University and Business Link South West.
"We produce engaging and award winning videos for our clients to communicate with their clients and customers, and showcase their product and services in an engaging way," said Robbie Hill, Managing Director of Hill Tribe Productions. "We needed a high quality online video hosting solution that we could trust to provide an optimal experience." The main criteria required by Hill Tribe for the ideal video platform was primarily efficiency – a delivery network that would enable fast download of the films the company produced to the end user. "We also wanted a platform that allowed us to make the most of our portfolio, through player branding and customization, to SEO optimization. We need our portfolio to work online for us, and to sell our services as professional video producers," added Mr. Hill. "Ooyala offered a great range of features and options, but their price point was unrealistic for us. Kaltura offered a good range, but their previous customer service had been terrible and we wanted a company that would be there for us. Brightcove has a good reputation and good price point, but when we tested their content delivery network it under-performed."
He then decided to try vzaar, which proved to â€œoffer everything we wanted and at a realistic price”. Mr. Hill said that the vzaar customer service during the trial period gave him huge confidence in the company, and that he was particularly impressed that vzaar was constantly upgrading and innovating features and options. Mr. Hill believes vzaar to be the perfect partner for video production companies who want to focus on their craft – making the content – and not having to worry about delivering it. "By working with vzaar we know that the films we produce will be shown to the end user online in the highest quality available – the culmination of all our hard work and effort."
