New York(11/2/2015) –Top video engagement platform, Viewbix has partnered with Kaltura, provider of the leading video technology platform, to add Viewbix’s interactive technology into the Kaltura video platform.

This partnership will make the Viewbix Platform accessible to clients directly within their Kaltura environment.

“We are delighted to partner with Kaltura to bring our technology to their users,” said Jonathan Stefansky, CEO and co-founder of Viewbix. “The goal of every video marketer now is to go beyond the branding element and truly engage with viewers. We have found that the best way to drive viewer engagement and measure its effectiveness is to provide viewers with direct calls-to-action in the player. We are excited to bring this capability to Kaltura and look forward to enhancing users’ video marketing success.”

New analytics capabilities will also be available for clients using the Viewbix Kaltura player plugin, allowing them to track every action that occurs on the player and optimize campaigns in real time to drive increased ROI.
