Video communications is moving beyond conferencing and morphing into other forms. Businesses can now embed video into business applications to streamline workflows. Quick video chats are also possible through messaging services. And live video streaming is spilling into business communications.

Live streaming services transmit media content in real time from one point to many points. This broadcast-style distribution enables businesses to conduct large corporate meetings and employee training videos.

Live streaming videos can also be recorded and viewed later on demand in a company's video library. Employees can also record and share their own videos. And like other video services, streaming can reap ROI by curbing travel costs and allowing remote co-workers to connect via online video.
