Microsoft Makes It Easier Than Ever Before for Enterprises to leverage video as a communications tool

Microsoft is continuing to expand its presence in the Enterprise video market by offering robust cloud-based applications for live communications as well as VOD content storage and management. You can create a live event in Microsoft Stream, Microsoft Teams, Yammer or Skype Meeting Broadcast and save that event as a video on demand asset for later viewing. But, to fully take advantage of the capabilities these applications offer, you need to ensure your network is up to the task.

That’s Where Hive Streaming Can HelpHive partners with Microsoft to help customers utilize their existing network investment to distribute high-quality video with the Hive software-based Enterprise Content Delivery Network (eCDN) solution. Whether you use Microsoft Stream, Microsoft Teams, Yammer, Skype Meeting Broadcast or Office365 Video, Hive will ensure a high-quality experience for all viewers without adversely impacting your corporate network.

For a limited time, Microsoft365 customers can also have free access to Hive Insights, a powerful browser-based analytics and reporting tool that monitors viewers’ quality of experience and the impact video streaming has on a network.

HIVE FOR MICROSOFT 365

Hive Streaming can be used to optimize delivery of live and on-demand video across Microsoft Stream, Microsoft Teams, Yammer, Skype Meeting Broadcast and Office 365 Video.

HOW IT INTEGRATES

An unobtrusive Hive Streaming client is installed on end-user devices. The Hive client then acts as a transparent HTTP proxy between the streaming server and the video player.

Hive can be deployed with SCCM or any other software configuration management platform. After deployment, your IT administrator then activates Hive for the Microsoft application they wish to enable it for (typically done through a CMDLET). There’s no need to do any other integration. From that point on all broadcasts, webcasts and VOD assets used through that application are automatically Hive-enabled.

Alternatively or as a complement to the Hive client, Hive offers a browser based WebRTC solution. More information on the benefits and limitations of Hive WebRTC can be found here.
