By Sabika Tasneem

YuJa Enterprise Video Platform is a pre-packaged SaaS-based video streaming and management solution founded in 2007. The solution is highly focused on the education-based video use cases and caters primarily to K-12 schools and higher education institutes. They do have an offering for government and corporate clients, but this is a basic solution that is molded out of their education solution and lacks many key offerings in this domain.

VIDIZMO, an alternative to YuJa, is a Gartner Magic Quadrant-recognized enterprise video content management system that offers both live and on-demand video streaming and management for both internal and external audiences. It is an end-to-end video solution founded in 2009 with a diverse range of large-scale corporate, government and educational clients (US Department of State, County of Santa Clara, NEC to name a few).

Conclusion

The focus of this comparison was to understand the critical differences between YuJa and VIDIZMO to understand where the strength of each solution lies. Hence, there are many features that were left out in this analysis, like AI capabilities, search, and indexing. This is because both VIDIZMO and YuJa have mostly similar offerings in these areas, with some minor differences.

For an organization looking for a pre-packaged education-focused solution, YuJa is a good option they can consider. However, this is only possible in a scenario where privacy and security are not a top priority. Otherwise, VIDIZMO stands out in terms of the depth and quality of its features like access controls, security, and limited sharing, as well as the flexibility offered in terms of various deployment models and customizations. The decision ultimately depends upon your organizational requirements, which is why research is of utmost importance.
