"Kaltura offers a highly differentiated video platform option, which allows organizations to fully own the open source code at no charge. The company also impresses with pioneering user-generated video that allows viewers to remix video clips. Additionally, the open community at Kaltura.org provides a great resource for innovation and sharing in development. As a newer entrant to the market, Kaltura has started with a solid entry; if it can buttress its monetization and reporting capabilities, it will certainly compete with the market leaders."
Make sure to come to the Reader’s Choice Awards Ceremony, San Jose Marriott at the San Jose Marriott, Wednesday, November 18 from 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. After the ceremony, mix it up—or rather REmix it up—at Kaltura's rocking party: open bar, video remixing legends Eclectic Method, networking, and dancing galore.
