Qumu, a leader in enterprise video, today announced it has taken on FocalCast as a direct integration partner. FocalCast, a St. Louis-based document cloud platform, allows users to record live multi-user collaboration sessions, training or lectures. With Qumu’s new extension, teams not only can record a session but also include their shared whiteboards and documents.
FocalCast and Qumu enable multi-user collaboration leveraging existing web conferencing, video conferencing and webcasting investments. Users can now initiate a Qumu stream or recording from a live FocalCast session with a single button (no downloads or plugins required). The recording (including audio, video, whiteboard & document stream) is securely stored and centrally managed for searching and viewing by any device. Digital copies of documents and artifacts are captured and tied directly to the recording and immediately shareable. Recordings can be saved to learning management systems (LMS), internal media channels, or corporate directories.
“FocalCast’s ability to seamlessly connect a wide variety of devices and document formats is a huge advantage for organizations,” said Devin Turner, FocalCast CEO. “We are excited to add Qumu’s enterprise-grade streaming and recording capabilities to revolutionize the way we connect and share information around the world.”
FocalCast, which has offices in St. Louis and Houston, originated in Wisconsin, where founders Devin Turner (CEO) and Charlie Beckwith (CTO) attended Marquette University. The company was part of the Capital Innovators Spring 2015 cohort, won an Arch Grant in 2016 and has received funding from MTC. The company is headquartered in Downtown St. Louis at T-REX Innovation Center.
