As live streaming has gone mainstream with consumer apps and platforms like Facebook Live, YouTube Live and Periscope, employees expect that same live mobile video experience at work.
Haivision announces a mobile app for its Enterprise Video Platform. Already available on iOS, Calypso Mobile is now live for Android.
Calypso Mobile app gives executives and employees the ability to contribute video from anywhere and easily access live and VOD content no matter where they are.
Available on Google Play and on the Apple App Store, Calypso Mobile lets users watch, stream and record live and on-demand video directly from their mobile device. Calypso Mobile is powered by the Enterprise Video Platform, which helps companies deliver secure, high quality video to every employee, in every office, on any screen.
Calypso Mobile features:
- Stream live and record video directly on your mobile device and share with employees across your network
- Instant access to your organization’s VOD content, live sources and multi-source sessions
- Support for Apple’s HLS streaming protocol
- New multi-stream player so employees can view multi-sources sessions and easily switch between streams
- Metadata filters for quick search
- Touch ID authentication support
- Calypso Mobile also features Airplay support so you can pop up whatever you’re watching right on the display in a conference or meeting room and the rest of your team can watch with you.
The new release of Calypso allows organizations to benefit from their existing investment in a multicast network to scale the distribution of high profile internal live events, like 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 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,” says 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.”
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.
