  1. Years of Government of Canada Experience

CollaborateVideo has been at the forefront of webcasting technology and providing services to the federal government for over 20 years. We understand the unique needs and requirements of Government of Canada clients and our custom-tailored solutions align perfectly with the goals and values of public sector organizations, working within organizational network infrastructures.

With over two decades of experience working alongside federal government agencies, we have honed our expertise to a fine point. This means that we not only understand the intricacies of the government sector but also know how to navigate them effectively, ensuring a smooth and efficient webcasting experience.

  1. Multiple Features for Multiple Languages

Canada is a diverse nation with a commitment to bilingualism and multiculturalism. This diversity is reflected in the languages spoken across the country. CollaborateVideo recognizes the importance of ensuring that your webcasts are accessible to all, regardless of their language preferences.

Our platform is not just bilingual; it’s multilingual. We go beyond the official languages to cater to the needs of your audience.

Our seamless multilingual support allows you to connect with a broader and more diverse audience, strengthening your message’s impact.

  1. Reliability You Can Trust

When it comes to webcasting, reliability is non-negotiable. Government events often involve high-stakes information dissemination and technical glitches can’t be allowed to disrupt the flow. CollaborateVideo understands the importance of a robust and reliable platform, and we’ve invested heavily in making sure our technology is up to the task.

With our platform, enjoy peace of mind knowing that your webcasts will run smoothly, without hiccups, adapting and optimizing based on contributing network and viewer variables. We handle the behind-the-scenes, ensuring that your event goes off without a hitch. This leaves you free to focus on the content and engagement while we take care of the technical intricacies.

  1. A Simplified, Worry-Free Setup

Government professionals are busy individuals with numerous responsibilities. The last thing you need is a complex and time-consuming setup process for your webcasts. CollaborateVideo takes pride in simplifying the entire process. With our platform, you don’t need to be a technical expert. 

We do the heavy lifting for you, from setting up the branded event website, registration with controlled access and two-factor authentication, configured accessibility and engagement features, streaming infrastructure, as well as a host of ad hoc consulting and support services. Focus on your content and we’ll ensure that it reaches your audience!
