Kaltura Acquires Newrow to Deliver New Meeting Experiences

Video cloud Kaltura has acquired video conferencing and collaboration platform Newrow, founded in 2016, for an undisclosed amount.

“The acquisition of Newrow kicks-off an exciting year for Kaltura, as we broaden our Meeting Solutions Experiences,” said Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura Co-founder, Chairman and CEO. “To date, different enterprise video conferencing and collaboration tools have catered to varying meeting types, such as everyday calls, collaboration sessions and team updates; large town-hall meetings; remote training sessions; and marketing webinars. Our new Meeting Experience offering, which uniquely addresses all Meeting use cases, is another important step in Kaltura’s journey to consolidate the siloed Enterprise Video market and offer a unified and flexible platform that would truly ‘power any video experience, for any organization’ – across all use cases, technology stacks, and engagement capabilities.”

The new Kaltura Meeting Experience offers a virtual meeting room, with  a set of real-time interactive features and specialized meeting capabilities. Meeting hosts control the  experience with advanced capabilities, such as advanced content management that supports a wide variety of file types, content playlists, attendance and focus indicators, cloud recording, and session statistics and insights. Live session recordings can be enriched, edited, analyzed and then provided as on-demand materials for use across the organization, enhancing the lifetime value of each meeting or training session.
