Positioned for Thought Leadership in 2020
2019 was the year when we at Hive Streaming moved our position to the forefront of the industry for enterprise video distribution. In 2019 we handled over 627,500 streaming events and videos, and thanks to many new customers across multiple market verticals, we now have over 3.4 million installed clients in over 190 countries worldwide. And the number of installed clients continues to grow by triple digit percentage numbers annually.
We were also excited to see that 2019 was the year that WebRTC really took off and how HiveRTC is rapidly becoming the friction free entry solution for live video streaming that many organizations have been waiting for. Having supported and contributed to the WebRTC standard since its first browser implementation in 2013, the number of Hive supported WebRTC events exploded with a ten-fold increase in 2019. In 2020, we plan to release new powerful features to HiveRTC in response to browser data privacy changes and to further support the relentless drive for higher video quality and broadcast reach.
2019 was also the year when we welcomed Workplace by Facebook and Kaltura to our partner ecosystem, taking the number of video platforms our solutions are integrated with to 33. A number that no one in our industry can match. We also launched our advanced video intelligence offering – Hive VI – a solution taking video analytics to a completely new level.
Looking forward, 2020 is the year when we truly seek to position ourselves as the thought leader in our industry. We will accomplish this by continuing to invest in research and development thereby adding innovative offerings and modules to our product portfolio. Our ambition is to take on the role as our customers’ trusted supplier and advisor, supporting them to develop and execute their video strategies and progress their digital workplace journey beyond video distribution. A partner helping them achieving their strategic employee communication and sustainability objectives.
We will continue to attract the best talent to support our efforts in sales, marketing, product development and customer support. 2020 is also the year when our HQ in Stockholm Sweden moves to larger offices and when we expand our organizational presence in the US. And launch operations in new geographies.
Hive Streaming has never been better positioned to be the true leader in our industry. An opportunity we intend to seize. We welcome you to be part of our journey!
