Challenges, new trends and technologies in private hosting

Infrastructure and scalability: Private video hosting platforms need robust infrastructure. This is because they need to handle large volumes of video content and serve it to users efficiently. This means having high-capacity servers, storage systems, and bandwidth. They are necessary to handle video uploads, encoding, transcoding, and streaming to global users.

Video transcoding and compatibility: Videos come in various formats, resolutions, and codecs. Private hosting platforms have to support them all and ensure compatibility across different devices and platforms. Transcoding videos for optimal streaming on different devices increases complexity and resource requirements.  

Content security and piracy: Private hosting companies have a responsibility to protect sensitive content from unauthorized distribution. They need robust content protection in the form of measures such as encryption, watermarking, and access control. Preventing users from downloading and sharing videos without permission is a constant battle.

Streaming performance: Delivering high-quality video content with smooth streaming requires enough bandwidth and optimized streaming protocols.

Evolving technologies and standards:  Video hosting platforms need to keep up with rapidly evolving technologies and industry standards. Growth and change is happening all the time. They need ways to support emerging video formats, implement adaptive streaming technologies and integrate with evolving third-party APIs and services.

Cincopa’s solutions to overcome these challenges

Addressing all these challenges not only requires technical expertise but a deep understanding of video hosting market dynamics. Cincopa has developed some innovative solutions to stay ahead of the competition.

Advanced technology: Cincopa uses adaptive bitrate streaming and transcoding technology with great success. No matter the device or bandwidth, users receive quality videos in the right format and size. A content delivery network (CDN) allows Cincopa to stream videos to specific users from the closest server of a distributed worldwide network. It can optimize video playback for mobile devices, gaming consoles, smart TVs, etc.

High privacy and security: One of Cincopa’s most popular solutions is CincoTube, for which it has a leader’s position in the SaaS industry. This video tube solution allows enterprises to store, manage, and distribute video content internally or externally in a secure, safe way.

Users can grant access to public or private channels. They can manage access to internal channels by determining who can view each video and who can’t. Permission settings enable more security and privacy. The use of advanced encryption technology also helps to ensure security.

  • Integration: It is possible to integrate Cincopa with applications enterprises already use such as a CMS or CRM. This eliminates data duplication and offers users a single source of truth.
  • Advanced analytics: Dashboards and heatmaps allow enterprises to track viewer behavior. They can see whether viewers rewatch video content or drop it off. These insights can help them to achieve more success with videos.
  • User experience: Intuitive interfaces, seamless video playback, and responsive customer support help to drive better customer experiences. 

CincoTube offers a similar type of interactivity as YouTube in that employees can like videos, comment on them, and share them with colleagues. This type of interaction helps to build a community that drives growth and loyalty. Quizzes, surveys, and contact forms to fill in all require user actions. Interaction like this promotes engagement and creates more loyal customers and employees.
