RAMP Announces Next-Generation Video Content Platform for the Microsoft Business Productivity Suite

BOSTON --(Business Wire)--

RAMP, the leading provider of video and search experiences for enterprises, today announced the availability of RAMP for Microsoft, a next-generation video content platform (VCP) for organizations that have standardized on Microsoft (News - Alert) Business Productivity infrastructure.

With RAMP, Microsoft customers can now reap the benefits of a VCP that's deeply integrated with Microsoft's Business Productivity products, including SharePoint, Office365, Yammer (News - Alert), and others. The company is showcasing RAMP for Microsoft this week at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2014 in Las Vegas, NV.

"Microsoft Business Productivity tools such as SharePoint are used by thousands of companies." said Tom Wilde, CEO, RAMP. "RAMP for Microsoft is a native integration that provides superior security, an optimized viewer experience, and single-system views and administration that are simply not available from any other products. RAMP's video solutions enable companies to simultaneously meet their users' video needs and realize a quick return on their growing investment n video."

RAMP's unique technology automatically transcribes the audio tracks in business videos and creates metadata, tags, and business rules that can be used to transform the viewer's experience. This allows customers to provide their viewers with deep search within the video's spoken word, the ability to navigate through the video using jump-to tags, and dynamically display related content based on the context of the video being watched. These "lean-forward" viewer experiences dramatically transform the way video can be used for training, field & sales enablement, corporate communications, and more.

The core components of RAMP for Microsoft include:

  • RAMP for SharePoint
    • A complete video management and delivery app, that tightly integrates RAMP's video content control with the native search, social, security, and content features of SharePoint 2010, 2013, and SharePoint Online. Recent enhancements enrich employee interactions with video through ratings and comments and incorporate channels for topic-specific video collections.
  • RAMP for Yammer
    • A plug-in that enables posting RAMP-managed video directly into Yammer social feeds and simplifying the exchange of video across social channels.
  • RAMP for Lync
    • A plug-in for posting Lync recordings to RAMP for access and consumption through SharePoint, Yammer, and other tools.
  • RAMP for Windows 8
    • Viewer Experience capabilities that deliver all of RAMP's unique video player features across Windows 8 devices and end points.
  • RAMP .NET (News - Alert) SDK
    • A complete .NET Software Development Kit for creating custom applications that leverage RAMP's advanced video management capabilities.

A demonstration of RAMP's capabilities can be seen this week at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2014, at The Venetian in Las Vegas, NV. Interested parties can visit RAMP at booth #1025.
