Flexible Video Streaming Solutions
Whether it’s live, on-demand or browser-based video delivery, Hive Streaming’s services can be customized to meet your business needs.
Quality Content Delivered Across Multiple Platforms
In today’s highly tech-based world, enterprises struggle to communicate consistent strategy and messaging to their employees. There’s growing realization video is critical to conveying the conviction and passion that’s important to associate with these messages.
Hive Streaming understands these challenges, and offers solutions that deliver high-quality video throughout organizations in a number of ways. Hive Streaming’s services promote consistency across delivery channels, ensuring live, on-demand or browser-based viewers receive a high-quality video experience no matter their technology or location.
Hive Streaming has developed enterprise class peering technology so that viewers behind a corporate firewall can all view the same video stream, without a unique unicast stream being sent to everyone. Typically one stream is sent to each site and this stream is then viewed/shared by all. Hive Streaming supports the latest adjustable bit rate (ABR) streaming protocols so all viewers can get the highest quality their bandwidth permits.
As well as offering support for live streaming, Hive also delivers on demand content more efficiently. The Hive Streaming peer-based technology can also be used for on demand delivery and we support the same streaming protocols for live streaming. By securely caching VoD content on viewers’ computers, Hive offloads video from the customer network and allows for a high-quality viewer experience. Hive’s VoD functionality is self-learning and self-optimizing and no configuration is required. Hive will globally index VoD assets and optimize which content to store on each viewer’s computer to ensure optimal performance.
Hive Enterprise Video Distribution reaches devices where you may not want to deploy enterprise software. Based on the WebRTC web standard (https://webrtc.org/), our browser-based solution is fully compatible with the Hive Streaming Enterprise Video Distribution including Hive Insights. Engineered to efficiently and seamlessly distribute live and on-demand video over internet and in private networks, our browser-based solution does not require installed software or browser plugins. It is easily integrated in any video portal that utilizes HTML5 video players.
Enterprise Communication Solutions
Effective communication is one of the biggest challenges enterprises face. Hive Streaming offers video delivery services that can increase internal transparency, boost employee morale, and create an efficient, consistent, and positive organizational environment.
Want to get the whole company educated and excited about a new product or service you are bringing to market?
Video is the ideal tool to demonstrate the features and benefits of a new product and also recognize the hard work of the team involved in the launch. Conduct the event live to create that sense of excitement and the water cooler effect. Having everyone hear the news at the same time will increase the likelihood that your product launch will generate buzz and get your organization pushing in the same direction together.
Once deployed, Hive Live can be used at a moment’s notice to support your live product launch. Administrators of your Hive deployment can run a silent test to determine if there are any network issues prior to the event so they can be resolved, helping avoid employee frustration and disappointment. And you’ll be able to record the presentation and make it immediately available for playback via the Hive client once the event is in progress.
You communicate with investors on quarterly basis, shouldn’t you do the same with employees?
Live video broadcasting with employees is an ideal way to keep everyone informed of the progress the company is making to achieve organizational objectives and goals. Video is so much better at communicating praise, conviction, urgency, and other emotions that are often essential to get company wide adoption.

What can be more unsettling for employees than reorganizations?
We’ve all experienced them along with the fear, uncertainty, and doubt that they inevitably entail. Why not come clean and share the rationale for the reorg with the whole company? Video will enable the sincerity of your intentions to shine through and share an intimacy with employees that can only be matched by an in person meeting. A video broadcast will go a long way to chopping the FUD off at the knees before it gets started.

Training and Education Videos
Scared that all those training videos that are required viewing are going to bring down your corporate network?
Cultural sensitivity, electronic communications, harassment, ethics, and all those other essential viewing videos can be delivered to employees desktops without impacting your network with Hive Streaming. The more these videos are viewed, the more efficient Hive Streaming becomes at delivering them.
As you encourage more video viewing in your corporate environment, maybe others will be encouraged to share their expertise companywide with recorded video presentations. YouTube has made it possible to get video instruction on just about anything. Shouldn’t you encourage similar sharing within your enterprise?
Throwing a party, celebrating an achievement, or having a group exercise that others across the company would love to participate in but can’t attend in person?
Why not broadcast the event with live video to all your employees? It really doesn’t have to be that complicated. Once Hive Streaming is installed, you can broadcast the live video to all your employees via a laptop video camera if you wish. Use your video management system to capture the event and then share it with those that couldn’t make it for on demand viewing at their convenience. Hive On Demand can help ensure that on demand viewing doesn’t disrupt your network as well – see Eastman Case Study
