Vidyard Launches Desktop Apps as Adoption of User-Generated Videos in Sales Accelerates

As more businesses embrace the shift to remote work and reduced travel, a growing number of sales teams are turning to user-generated videos to connect with customers and share ideas when they can’t be there in person.

To support this growing need, Vidyard, the video platform for business, has launched its free Vidyard Desktop Apps for Mac and Windows to enable any business professional to record and share custom HD videos directly from their desktops. The latest offering works seamlessly with Vidyard’s existing browser extensions for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, as well as its mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Through the new desktop apps, users can capture high-definition webcam videos and screen recordings with up to 4k resolution. In addition to custom video messages and video emails, users can record walkthroughs of PowerPoint presentations, documents, web-based applications and more.

Videos can be customized with animated GIF thumbnail images and immediately shared via Gmail, Outlook, LinkedIn, Facebook, Salesforce, HubSpot and a variety of other applications and services.

“Salespeople in almost every industry have had to rethink their approach to connecting with customers,” said Tyler Lessard, vice president of marketing at Vidyard. “The ability to record and share custom videos to connect with new prospects and clearly show value has become vital for many sellers in the digital-first age. The Vidyard Desktop App is an important extension to our product offerings to ensure every sales rep can make video a seamless part of how they sell.”
