Be Calm and Stream On!
An enterprise video distribution solution for all your video applications
Pushing out large amounts of video in an enterprise is an
effective way of exposing network weaknesses. And even the
most well-maintained network can be brought to its knees
by video files that are in high demand, especially by live
video events. Employees are embracing online video in their
personal lives, and they want to do the same at work. Modern
enterprise applications are increasingly embracing video;
Skype, Office 365, video conferencing products, and training
applications are all encouraging the use of video. Now there’s
a common video distribution solution.
You simply can’t have a successful corporate video strategy
without a distribution solution that caters to the existing
network constraints and requirements. Ignore your network,
and your video is doomed to occasional viewing in low bit rates
and to instill top management wrath over flunked webcasts.
Hive Streaming is designed to always deliver large amounts
of video–on demand and live–without stressing your network.
In fact, having deployed Hive, the distribution part of the
video experience becomes seamless and unnoticeable.
Hive Streaming is software-based and forms a software-defined
network on top of your existing
hardware infrastructure. It is a
secure and easy-to-deploy solution
for streaming of large-scale high-quality video. Hive Streaming
utilizes existing, underutilized
network bandwidth to create
a highly efficient and robust
distribution solution that removes
almost all net work load with very
high levels of reliability. Put simply,
users on the corporate net work are
able to view the same stream rather
than everyone getting their own
unique video stream.
PEACE OF MIND
Network administrators can support video events
with confidence. Hive Streaming gives administrators
the ability to control and monitor centrally–there’s no
remote hardware to manage. Also, Hive Silent Testing
gives enterprises the ability to pre-test the network to
determine what the video experience will be for all users
in all locations prior to the actual event. This enables
network issues to be fixed prior to the event, or at least
set realistic expectations.
