The Hive Streaming Secure and Efficient Peering Solution is Now Integrated with The Kaltura Video Platform to Offer High Quality Enterprise Video Delivery at Scale
Hive Streaming, a leader in enterprise video distribution, and Kaltura, the leading video technology company, today announced a new partnership aimed at providing joint customers premium video delivery capabilities. Hive’s peering and data visualization solutions join Kaltura’s broad network optimization offering which includes Kaltura eCDN, along with additional video delivery and network optimization solutions. Hive Streaming, now a Kaltura Premier Partner in the company’s Video Technology Marketplace, provides enterprises with a cost-effective, secure P2P solution, that delivers high-quality Live and VOD content, right to their employee devices with minimal impact on their existing enterprise network.
Live video streaming is increasingly becoming a critical part of the digital transformation of enterprises. Executive messaging, employee development, and corporate events are just a few of the ways video is being used to increase employee engagement. As most enterprise networks aren’t provisioned to handle live streaming to employee devices, enterprises search for high-quality and cost-efficient delivery solutions that enable them to scale video streaming, monitor networks, and troubleshoot in real-time. Together, Hive and Kaltura solve these problems by leveraging customers’ existing network and without deploying additional hardware or provisioning additional bandwidth.
“Video plays a key role in any digital workplace and Kaltura is helping drive this key digital transformation component,” said Doug Collins, Hive Vice President of Channel Sales. “We are very excited and proud to be a Kaltura Premier Partner and to be working with the Kaltura team to solve the challenges that broadcasting live video can present to global enterprises,” adds Doug. “The joint solution has been successfully deployed by several Kaltura customers including one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies – resulting in outstanding network improvements for their employees.”
“Our main goal is to offer our customers best-of-breed technology that is served directly from their trusted video platform,” says Liad Eshkar, Managing Director of Strategy and Partnerships at Kaltura at Kaltura. “We are delighted to partner with Hive Streaming to further enhance Kaltura’s broad video delivery offering, which includes our own Kaltura eCDN and more. Our enterprise customers can now choose Hive Streaming’s P2P solution to deliver Kaltura-powered video broadcasts to their employees, leveraging the employees’ own devices.”
