MONTREAL, June 8, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Haivision, a market leader in enterprise video and streaming solutions, announces a secure, standards-based multicast option for its Enterprise Video Platform, Calypso. The new release allows organizations to benefit from their existing investment in a multicast network to scale the distribution of high profile internal live events, like all hands and town hall meetings, to thousands of employees within the LAN, without compromising quality, security or overwhelming their network.
As proprietary multicast technologies like Windows Media Server and Microsoft Silverlight reach their announced end-of-life, and mechanisms like Java fall out of favor with IT security professionals, organizations have, until now, lacked a standards-based approach that leverages their existing IP network infrastructure.
Haivision's Enterprise Video Platform now extends its unique end-to-end encryption from the encoder to the player with options for unicast or multicast distribution. This new release also adds support for single sign-on (SSO), ensuring the most secure and convenient distribution of confidential internal video communications, such as all hands and town hall meetings.
"Not only is Haivision is one of the most secure enterprise video platforms on the market, we're helping organizations truly reach every end-point," said Bruce "Zip" Zieper, vice president product management, enterprise media, at Haivision. "By delivering a secure, standards-based multicast solution, customers can extend the enterprise video experience beyond the browser and mobile devices to large-format digital signage players and set-top boxes in common spaces for group viewing throughout a LAN, reaching every employee throughout the company."
The Haivision Enterprise Video Platform makes it simple for organizations to stream end-to-end encrypted, high quality, live and on demand videos to employees in every office, on any device. With Haivision's hybrid cloud eCDN, organizations can distribute live and on-demand video to remote offices and mobile workforces. Due to the simplicity of Haivision's approach and the focus on industry standards, the Haivision Enterprise Video Platform can be commissioned within days. Haivision will showcase the latest version of its Enterprise Video Platform at InfoComm 2016.
