Kollective Announces Integration with Microsoft Stream

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.”
