The State Department has selected Watchitoo to provide its cloud-based video collaboration service to support the department’s global interactive communication programs with both internal and external parties.
Awarded through the GSA IT Schedule 70 vehicle, the multi-year contract covers video conferencing and collaboration tools and broadcast-quality streaming service using a single platform, Watchitoo said Wednesday.
“Government agencies have used online video for years to facilitate one-way communication to various audiences,” said Dori Gurwitz, vice president of sales and partnerships at Watchitoo.
“However, with the growth in remote workforces and global audiences’ appetite for two-way communication using online video, government agencies need a better and more scalable way to support them.”
According to the company, its video platform supports an unlimited number of users, can be used both via cloud and on-premises and can be integrated into websites, intranet or a mobile environment.
