International House of Prayer Builds Powerful Internet Streaming Ministry with the Haivision Video Cloud.

Challenge

These meetings must be streamed live to the International House of Prayer (IHOP) website, IHOP University (IHOPU) and other ministry locations with HD quality video in order for users to have the best experience possible.

With online and remote services becoming an essential part of the ministry, IHOP requires a constant live stream that is consistent and highly reliable.

“Our online services are an essential part of our ministry… it’s essential that we choose encoding equipment with absolute, bullet-proof reliability. Haivision provides this reliability as well as top-notch quality, along with a superior Web interface.”
