Linius aims to add magic to video conferencing with Whizzard

Cloud-based solutions provider Linius Technologies has unveiled Whizzard, a new product for the video conferencing and enterprise collaboration markets.

Integrated with conferencing and enterprise collaboration technology such as Zoom, Webex Meetings and Microsoft Teams, Whizzard is designed to address two key markets – the corporate and enterprise market with Whizzard-meet, and the university and higher education market with Whizzard-learn.

Linius said it expects the video-conferencing market to achieve a compound annual growth rate of over 19% between 2020 and 2026. It pointed out that Zoom had announced earlier this year that it had more than 300 million participants a day and Microsoft Teams had reported up to 2.7 billion meeting minutes a day. It added that more than 183,000 educational institutions are now using Microsoft Teams, as are 91 of the Fortune 100 companies.

Linius said Whizzard will enable employers, employees, students and teachers to transform hours of video footage into bite-sized relevant pieces of content, to increase knowledge sharing across their preferred platforms.

Whizzard takes video data from the recordings of video conference platforms and allows users to search within and across recordings, and reassemble snippets into new personalised videos to share with colleagues or fellow students.
