Under the Hood: Haivision Media Platform Version 3.2
Streaming live corporate video to audiences outside of the corporate network is now more important than ever. Communication, especially through video, is key to keeping employees engaged while ensuring business continuity.
With the latest software version of Haivision Media Platform, 3.2, delivering video to your employees just got even easier. Let’s go ‘under the hood’ to explore the new features that give Haivision Media Platform (HMP) increased flexibility to deliver high-quality video securely to employees no matter where they are working from.
External Video Player
Embeddable players from third-party video platforms, such as Microsoft Stream, can now be embedded within live sessions for playback directly within the HMP user interface. This makes it easy to stream live corporate communications to large audiences outside the corporate LAN (such as employees working from home.)
With this new feature, once users have signed-in and are authenticated into the portal, HMP determines, based on the user’s location, whether to provide the live stream from the external player over the internet, or from HMP across the corporate network. Rather than putting excessive strain on corporate network’s outbound or VPN bandwidth, video can reach home-based employees by using CDN-based delivery. This is critical during exceptional moments, when many more employees are working from home.
Watch the video walkthrough below to see how to leverage Microsoft Stream within HMP to deliver live video to all employees.
Source Location Filtering
In addition to supporting the External Video Player feature, Source Location Filtering is a new feature that allows administrators to limit access to IPTV video content (or any other content) based on a viewer’s location. By limiting access based on geographical location, HMP ensures adherence to regional distribution rights, location routing policies and any other regional restrictions that may arise when providing live video to users inside or outside of the corporate network. Security-conscious admins will appreciate the ability to ensure that video cannot leave authorized network segments and can only be accessed from select locations.
Role-Based Toolbar Customization
Generally, while all employees need access to the content in your enterprise video platform, not all employees require administrator or content contributor access. Manage and simplify the HMP user experience by customizing which toolbar menu items are available to different user types, based on permissions. HMP 3.2 enables granular access control by defining the level of access to HMP features (such as Library or Scheduler) needed by a specific user. HMP 3.2 creates more streamlined experience for your average users.
