Haivision Brings Cloud-Based Video Solutions to Microsoft Azure Marketplace

With Haivision Media Gateway, enterprise and broadcast customers can easily and cost-effectively distribute high quality live video to and from multiple locations

MONTREAL, CANADA – November 4, 2015 — Haivision, a market leader in video streaming and media management solutions, today announced the availability of the Haivision Media Gateway on Microsoft Azure, giving enterprises and broadcasters a flexible and cost-effective solution for transporting high quality video for live events, broadcast backhaul and distribution.

With Haivision Media Gateway on Azure, organizations can utilize the benefits of the cloud to scale their live video workflows with minimal IT intervention. The solution provides ease of set-up and commissioning, without putting a strain on the network at the source location, bringing a welcome alternative to the long lead times, prohibitive costs and scheduling challenges associated with satellite and MPLS networks.

Broadcast and enterprise customers can use Haivision Media Gateway in the cloud for:

  • Transporting high quality live video using Internet connections: Powered by Haivision’s fundamental video transport technology – SRT – the Haivision Media Gateway enables customers to use low cost, readily available public Internet connections to transport secure, live, HD video to and from multiple locations around the world. The Haivision Media Gateway with SRT also features different options to easily manage firewall traversal.
  • Enterprise video distribution: With Haivision Media Gateway, organizations can now easily distribute live events from remote sites like hotels and satellite offices, by sending a single stream to the cloud before being distributed to multiple facilities or redistribution points with low latency.
  • Broadcast backhaul and distribution: Organizations can use the Haivision Media Gateway as a video network bridge to transport video between studio environments. For broadcasters, this means an easier way to backhaul video to a centralized production venue before being distributed to remote affiliates.

“Cloud-based video workflows are revolutionizing the potential of live video within the enterprise and broadcast markets,” said Peter Maag, Haivision’s CMO. “These industries are becoming very comfortable with the simple provisioning of cloud resources in contrast to the complexity of contracting satellite or custom networks.”

“With Haivision’s inclusion in the Azure Marketplace, we’re extending our platform to support customers with enterprise video and broadcast solutions – bringing a more flexible and scalable solution for video transport using the cloud,” said Venkat Gattamneni, Group Product Marketing Manager, Microsoft Azure.
