New capabilies in Microsoft Stream will allow users to host and record live events for large audiences

Bend, OR, July 12,  2018 – Enterprise content delivery company, Kollective, has today announced the upcoming integration with Microsoft Stream. This integration will mean that Stream users can easily connect to their Kollective eCDN solution from within Stream to optimize network bandwidth for live events and on-demand video.

The new integration will help enterprise users provide the best possible network experience for live and on-demand video sharing. Through the use of Kollective’s software-defined network, businesses will be able to share video securely and at scale, regardless of the size of their workforces or the quality of their existing physical network infrastructure.

Commenting on the integration, Dan Vetras, CEO of Kollective, said: “When it comes to live or on-demand video, delivery optimization is vital to ensuring collaboration tools work effectively and in a user-friendly manner. In addition, whether during small or enterprise-wide live events, it’s essential that businesses consider the potential impact on their network. Through our integration with Microsoft Stream, we will help enterprises optimize network bandwidth by making it easy to connect to our eCDN solution. This, combined with our unique software-only delivery platform, helps guarantee that businesses are making the most of their video technology.”

At the heart of the integration is Microsoft Stream, a video service designed to democratize access to, and discovery of, videos at work. Stream allows users to easily share live and on-demand video content across their organizations, as well as creating a highly searchable video library which can be accessed on any device.

Vishal Sood, Partner Group Program Manager, Microsoft, added: “As video becomes widely adopted within an enterprise, strains on network bandwidth can become an issue. Enterprise content delivery network providers like Kollective can help customers who need to deliver high-quality video across their entire organization, without impacting network performance.”
