One of the many technological side effects of the COVID-19 pandemic is the rapid introduction it provided for the workers, students and socializers of the world to Zoom. Zoom, which is headquartered in San Jose, provides video, phone, and chat services through a cloud-based and peer-to-peer software platform.

To enhance the video conferencing sessions, the company also provides its Zoom App Marketplace, an open and secure platform that allows third-party developers to build and share applications that integrate with Zoom’s video UC platform. Since launching in 2018, the Zoom Marketplace has continued to grow, adding tens of thousands of new developers’ building products that make hundreds of millions of secured API calls each month. It features chatbots, apps for calendars and appointment setting and thousands of work/collaboration tools.

One of the drawbacks of Zoom and other popular video conferencing platforms is their inability to reliably deliver large-scale virtual events to tens of thousands of geographically dispersed remote employees. Some companies are stepping in to fill the void and adapt the platforms to enterprise-scale needs.

This week, Vbrick, a provider of enterprise video platform solutions, announced that its Rev platform is listed in the Zoom App Marketplace. Vbrick's Rev platform integrates with many popular video conferencing solutions to extend them to deliver video at scale to large audiences, thereby enabling organizations to leverage existing video conferencing investments.

As a result of pre-built integration, Rev can join a scheduled Zoom meeting or Zoom personal room session and extend the Zoom meeting to meet larger audience sizes for large scale enterprise webcasts or town halls, according to the company. Additionally, Rev can record webcast events and enrich the recorded content with optional transcription, translation and facial recognition and then publish and manage video content using Rev's enterprise video content management capabilities.

"Enterprises have made considerable investments in collaboration solutions and our strategy is to provide frictionless integration with Rev to ensure that every employee in an organization can benefit from the power of video to engage, transform and empower,” said Shelly Heiden, CEO of Vbrick Systems, in a statement. “Our integrations with the Cisco Collaboration Suite, Zoom and Microsoft Teams are a logical step in supporting our customers' needs and ensuring an increased return on those investments.”
