The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) is the largest professional body for those who work in the securities and investment industry in the UK. With over 40,000 members, it is one of the most trusted and widely respected sources of information about investment in securities.
CISI is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge within the field. Critical to this development are CISI's video seminars, which aim to support members in their professional development. Jade Clarke, Multi-Media Producer at CISI explains, "Our Company is international and the majority of our members aren't able to attend events in person. The videos enable them to watch the seminars after the event."

With members paying to access video content online, security was key for CISI. According to Clarke, "CISITV is an exclusive member benefit so we really need to be sure that non-members cannot access the video content. vzaar has supported us in helping to prevent this."
He continues, "vzaar's interface is very simple to use which means that any of our staff can use it without needing masses of technical knowledge."
With such a large membership base CISI need to be sure that all of their subscribers receive the optimal viewing experience. "vzaar gives us flexibility in how we stream our content to our viewers. This has helped cut buffer and loading times and conserve bandwidth," says Clarke.
Clarke reports, "One of the main reasons we chose vzaar was because of its competitive rates. We were very impressed by the features and functionality you get access to for a relatively small cost, compared to some of the other video hosting services out there."
