We have been recently introduced to new video platform, Xavy, launched in November 2013 and designed for professionals to share and discover videos from conferences and events.
Co-founders Henry Embleton and Mark Walker noticed that conference footage, which can be rich in information and insights, can become lost on general video sharing platforms like YouTube. Furthermore professionals may be hesitant or unaware to search on such platforms for meaty, industry-specific content.
If you’re looking for information, Xavy, whose tagline is ‘expert talks on demand’ aims to provide a safe-for-work platform that dishes up quality conference material, searchable by industry, theme, event and speaker.
If you’re an event organiser, it’s a place to share your event videos in a space where viewers are specifically searching for conference material. You can release your content for free or through their paywall functionallity, Xavy gives you the option of selling your content. Handy, if you’re looking to create an extra revenue stream or target the people that did not attend your conference. Xavy also allows you to sell tickets to your next event alongside your videos. Take a look at their introduction clip:
We are big advocates of recording your conference or event. If you’re investing the time, effort and money into putting on an event, it makes sense to spread the net wide and maximise your audience through sharing your content online. Rather than the event coming and going in the blink of an eye, conference videos are long term assets that continue to share your message with new viewers. If you approach it this way, video production is not another expense, it’s a smart investment.
Whether you’re looking to research into a specific business topic, soak up some valuable insights from a recent conference or share your own conference footage, Xavy is a great new option worth exploring and testing out for yourself!
