In a society where video is more and more present and where its efficiency is indiscutable (we remember 80% of what we see and hear at the same time), we have decided to produce short training videos in-house. But realizing them on your own is a hard work, and we have faced some issues we have not thought about before.

In a digital world where leaks can occur quickly, it is understandable that our users ask for the best protection for their audiovisual content. 
We offer the possibility to protect videos with a username and a password. But is is also possible to secure the publication of the content thanks to IP filtering or geofiltering. Then, our users can decide on which domain names can their videos be watched.
