Hive Streaming and Microsoft Solve Video Communication Challenge for AXA.

We’d like to welcome AXA as a Hive customer! AXA Germany was looking to increase the frequency and reach of their internal video communications. After evaluating competing technologies, only Hive could meet their selection criteria which primarily focused on:

  • Easy to configure and maintain
  • Efficient at utilizing existing network resources
  • Able to eliminate impact on user applications during broadcasts
  • Integrate with Microsoft Office 365 sign-on and collaboration tools
  • Improve the video quality to all users – over 1.5mbps to most users

Hive worked together with Microsoft to win the business, and AXA is currently publishing live video webcasts using Skype Meeting Broadcast. AXA is also very interested in deploying Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams and Stream and utilizing the Hive integration in these products.

“Hive Streaming was a clear choice based on our requirements and thorough evaluation. Their solution’s overall performance and the Hive team’s collaborative approach left us with no doubt that they were the right choice.”
Daniel Klatt, AXA Services Germany

Since deploying Hive, AXA is seeing well over 90% bandwidth savings (where Hive is deployed) and close to over 85% of employees receiving a good or excellent video quality of experience. Hive supports adaptive bit rate streaming, and over 70% are receiving a 1.7 Mbit/s stream.

“Deploying Hive Streaming has resulted in an improvement in the quality of our video events, which has driven an increase in the frequency and attendance at these events. The overall result is a steady increase in employee communication that is more impactful, cost effective and convenient.”
Daniel Klatt, AXA Services Germany

We’d like to thank AXA for trusting us with their video distribution and for supporting us with this case study. You can read the complete case study here.
