What do you like best?

We found VBrick Rev when searching for a product that could handle streaming live media to large audiences, without hitting our VPN for offsite users and without using our Internet circuits for onsite users. Cloud Rev combined with the on-prem DME servers elegantly solves this problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We've had occasional issues with recordings showing up corrupted, which is only an issue if we don't have a backup recording from another source. Still, it would be nice not to have to worry about it as much. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be prepared to do a little setup if you plan to utilize the DME on-prem streaming functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've decreased per-meeting Internet and Webex licensing costs on our large gatherings, and we've also gained the secondary benefit of having an internal YouTube-like video hosting solution for our employees. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I wish my channels had player windows like the home one allowing me to create a virtual Cable Network of programming.

I dislike so need to use Zoom or Webex and can’t hold my group calls directly in VBrick. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you figure out your workflow it could be a highly valued tool for content distribution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The lack of a tv interface for VOD content seems the about the only thing that would improve it for our use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like about Vbrick is how easy it is for the user to share information to it's colleagues in a very interactive environment. The Q&A, chat, and polling features make it easy for viewers to participate in live webcasts. Along with the ability to record your live webcasts and then share the VOD for people who missed the live event is very helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are not many things that I dislike but there are some features that could be added to make it easier to administer Teams. Like being able to bulk add members to the team would be a great feature especially if you have a large amount of members on your team it would be very convenient if we could add users with a .csv file. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Previously we had a long process to create Live webcasts we would have to create a web page for each event. Now with VBrick it's so much easier to create edit and manage webcasts for users. The process has made it so easy so that we can tackle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of use for administrators and integration into Cisco Webex environment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We use Active Directory for authentication of our organization's users. That works well. But when we want to use Rev to have specific non-org users view a video training we have created, the tools for allowing access and reviewing attendance are not quite right for us. We probably need more of a Learning Management System, but it would be great if Rev provided a bit more functionality in this area. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rev has become our official repository for recordings of online training. We like that. It's helpful for onboarding new employees, and allowing people to view training on-demand. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Vbrick's approach with cloud to prem LAN/WAN distribution sets it apart from most if not all its competitors in the marketplace. The Distributed Media Engine and REV connect now offer distribution to corporate site of all sizes with modern distribution. The REV platform is also based on open standards so media, live streams, and integrations can be done with either turn-key solutions or via a powerful REST API. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At scale managing the IP zones required to distribute content on the LAN can be cumbersome, the technology is rock solid but the management and upkeep can at times be a pain with M&A activities or network redesigns. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Unlike most cloud hosted solutions Vbrick offers prem distribution. cloud only solutions belie the fact that most organizations do not have perfect bandwidth everywhere, Vbrick is extremely invested in the Enterprise Content Distribution Network (eCDN) and this is extremely important to most corporate implementations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are moving closer to turn-key webcasting. The video on demand benefits though are where we really see the most benefit. Corporate recordings of any kind including audio only podcasts can be uploaded, trans-coded, and delivered to end users without much of the complexity I have seen in other solutions.

What do you like best?

Rev makes it easy for us to create our internal, online learning classes (they're really basic - just an instructor and a powerpoint) from our videoconference connections. But with the tech updates and improvements Vbrick makes to Rev every month - and the monthly release webinars to update us all about them - I'm finding it possible to integrate Rev with my Cisco infrastructure, as well as Zoom. The new AI features - facial recognition, etc. - I hope to exploit in the near future. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are using Webex Meeting, Training, and Events more and more. I'd like to see some easier integrations with these platforms on Rev. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We love that Rev and the Vbrick platform has streamlined our webstreaming workflow. Our corporation has a very disperse staff. Most of our staff work at client site locations or at offsite locations. Rev has enabled us to support firm-wide events that allow our staff to connect and view the events from wherever they happen to be located. One link connects our staff either to our internal network or to an external connection on any device. This allows our staff to feel engaged with their colleagues and leadership. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We have very few dislikes, but if I had to highlight one, it would be the editing capability. It works fine, but we would love to see some additional enhancements to give us some additional features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dispersed staff and providing a simple connection process to allow internal and external based staff to join events as well as supporting firm-wide webcasts (1,000 or more attendees) was our biggest challenge. We've realized that the zone logic in Rev has allowed us to optimize our internal network traffic and provide redundancy and fail over should an issue occur during an event, was a huge benefit we discovered.

My company uses the vBrick DME appliance along with the vBrick Rev service to simplify the distribution of our media assets to employees around the globe. It has the ability to know when a client is on the same network as a DME thereby getting its video feed directly from the DME. It also knows when the client is on a remote network allowing handoff to a CDN for video distribution. We have been using it for our monthly CEO webcast with fantastic results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Recently the Cisco WebEx/Spark integration has been broken preventing us from using vBrick Rev to automate the recording and storage of our webinars. We are hoping that the issue gets resolved soon. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Prior to using vBrick, we had a legacy Windows Media Server in our headquarters location that was used to publish a media stream to all of our employees. The employees had to be on our corporate VPN in order to access the stream which introduced things like latency and jitter in our video. Since moving to vBrick, internal company clients can hit our on premise appliance, while folks that aren't directly connected to our network can hit the CDN that vBrick Rev publishes to.
