Video on the Intranet

After my earlier post on using YouTube as KM platform to supplement an intranet, I saw this story on the Intranet Journal by Troy Dreier: Will Video Kill the Intranet Star?

The Nielsen Norman Group pointed out American Electric Power as a company that makes extensive use of videos on its intranet. I was nearly knocked over by their investment in infrastructure: a $300,000 studio with four broadcast-quality cameras, four teleprompters, a full lighting grid, a green-screen stage, and four editing suites. Plus, a staff of five people for video production and two IT members to handle streaming events.

That is a serious investment in making videos available on their intranet.
