When it comes to worker safety, mitigating downtime, and boosting
productivity, nothing is faster than right NOW. Organizations across
various industry segments — construction, food and beverage, chemical

Corporate business units hired marketing firms and video production houses because those outside agencies were the only ones with both the required expertise and the expensive equipment needed to generate high-quality results.
Quantum teamed up with the Communications Media Management Association (CMMA) to survey their members—media production managers from leading enterprises—to learn more about the benefits and challenges of creating video in-house.
Download the eBook, “The Changing Landscape of Corporate Video Production” to get the following questions answered and more:

Today, that is changing. As the cost of video production technology drops, more corporations are recognizing the value of bringing production in-house. According to a recent report by Vidyard, 85% of businesses surveyed now have internal staff and resources producing videos in-house.
