Enterprises Embrace Video - Hive Streaming Capitalizes through Partner Strategy and Powerful Analytics Tool
Streaming, the developer of the world's most efficient and cost
effective video distribution software, predicts that 2017 will be a
landmark year for enterprise video adoption. The Swedish-based company
believes that 2017 is the year when many market forces will combine to
significantly accelerate enterprise adoption of live and on demand video
communication. These factors include:
Consumer enthusiasm for video moving to the enterprise driven by
increasing familiarity with consumer video applications including
Skype (News - Alert), Snap Chat, Instagram and Facebook.
The interest being generated around unified communication and
collaboration platforms and the natural fit for video communications
within these platforms.
The maturity and cost effectiveness of video delivery platforms and
"Video is a critical component of unified communication and
collaboration in the modern enterprise," said Johan Ljungberg, CEO of
Hive Steaming. "More and more employees want to use video to communicate
in the workplace in the same way that they do in their personal lives.
We expect 2017 to be a landmark year for enterprise video adoption."
One excellent example of a unified communication platform expanding its
video feature set within the Enterprise is Microsoft's (News - Alert) Skype for
Business. One of these features is Skype Meeting Broadcast which
leverages Hive Streaming to enable enterprises to globally broadcast a
video presentation without impacting the corporate network. Hive
Streaming has seen a dramatic increase in utilization of the Skype
Meeting Broadcast feature within Skype for Business in 2017. "By
enabling Skype for Business customers to broadcast video presentations
to employees globally, without having to install additional hardware,
Hive Streaming significantly enhances the Skype for Business offering,"
said Greg Baribault, principal group program manager, Microsoft Corp.
"Hive Insights, the Hive analytics product, coupled with Hive's silent
testing capabilities takes the guess work and the risk out of Skype
Meeting Broadcast by allowing customers to get detailed statistics on
viewer quality of experience and the impact of streaming video on their
global network prior to the broadcast." Hive Streaming is currently
offering Hive Insights for free to Skype Broadcast customers for a
limited time. More information is available in the Azure
The collaboration with Microsoft is an example of how Hive Streaming has
chosen to go to market globally. Most corporations looking to unify
communications and widely deploy video are generally requiring a platform
that incorporates a content management system. Hive Streaming is
focused on being the leading software-based video delivery solution
within these platforms. Hive Streaming also partners and integrates with
the products and services of: Jubilant Technologies, Live Arena,
MediaPlatform, uStudio, Panopto, Qumu, Swisscom (News - Alert), TalkPoint and other
leading video platform providers.
The Hive Enterprise Video Distribution solution is simple to deploy,
software based, and secure. Hive Streaming is focused on live and on
demand video delivery. Large enterprises with geographically dispersed
workforces find the Hive Streaming solution particularly appealing.
According to Greg Harrison, Advanced Systems Analyst, Eastman Chemical
Company "Internal video communications with employees is critical to
keeping staff involved and informed on our critical initiatives and
corporate progress. With over 15,000 employees in more than 100
countries, we found Hive Streaming to be the most cost effective and
efficient video delivery solution. Hive Streaming has vastly decreased
traffic on our network while enabling us to improve video quality for
all our employees." Today, Hive is publishing a case study on the
Eastman deployment and it's available from this link Hive
