Add streaming video to your tech stack

Viostream is a SaaS, cloud video platform designed to work seamlessly with the devices, comms tools, and corporate network that you already have, leveraging your existing network infrastructure to enable secure streaming at scale and video enabling your existing enterprise applications.

Add streaming video to your tech stack

Intelligent Video Distribution

Intelligent Video Distribution

Streaming live video or large amounts of simultaneous on-demand video content across an internal network can have a profound impact on bandwidth.

Viostream overcomes this challenge, with intelligent and flexible distribution options across corporate networks. Viostream works seamlessly with your existing infrastructure stack, removing the need for additional equipment or investment, to support internal streaming.

Minimising video impact on the WAN

Viostream integrates with existing network caching devices and WAN optimisation applications like Riverbed, to leverage the existing stream splitting and object caching ability and serve a single stream to multiple users, minimising bandwidth utilisation

Live and on-demand video is cached on an appliance near the users (in the branch office). This helps provide a smooth viewing experience without buffering, and ensures the streaming content does not congest the WAN, or interfere with business-critical applications.

Intelligent Streaming

Intelligent Streaming

Videos are transcoded into multiple bit-rate, formats and screen sizes. When a user hits play, Viostream determines the device being used and network conditions to automatically serve the optimal bitrate and resolution. As the video is streamed, Viostream continually monitors the connection, and dynamically adjusts the video quality and bandwidth to meet prevailing network conditions.

This provides a high quality user experience, and gives the ability to ‘shape’ bandwidth, by controlling the size of the video streams and ensuring low bitrates are automatically provisioned for low bandwidth sites.

eCDN + Media Servers

Out of the box, Viostream’s Global CDN offering (using Akamai and AWS CloudFront) supports large scale streaming anywhere in the world, but also enables streaming across network eCDN or on-premise media servers. Our services team can work with you to configure media servers on physical or virtual machines to suit your network requirements, use cases and budget.

P2P Streaming

P2P streaming applications redistribute video streams, with each viewer acting as a re-broadcaster. Peer-based streaming technology utilises existing infrastructure, and typically requires just a client on the end-user device. Viostream integrates with P2P applications like Hive for silent testing, large scale live events and QoS.

Security & Control

Viostream’s security features ensure video hosting and access control meet your corporate security policies, with permission based user roles, active directory authentication, secure content delivery, flexible storage options and audit logs

  • Control who can view your content through viewer authentication
  • Seamless access for employees through SSO integration with your corporate directory
  • Prevent unwanted sharing by locking your video down to authorised websites or sites
  • Secure streaming prevents 3rd party interception and downloading of content
Security & Control
MS Active Directory

Active Directory Authentication

Viewer access can be controlled by using the SAML 2.0 protocol for SSO user authentication allowing for secure LDAP, Active Directory or SQL user authentication.

Viostream’s packaged SSO integration to Active Directory provides:

  • Simplified user login
  • Increased security using SAML & SSL Active Directory Federation Services
  • Controlled video distribution using Active Directory groups

Flexible Cloud or On-Premise Storage

Cloud: Viostream includes cloud storage using AWS S3, which provides extreme data reliability. All content is stored within AWS Tier 3 Data Centers within Australia, meeting strict data sovereignty requirements for Government and Financial Services.

On-Premise: Viostream supports On-Premise storage with a hybrid model that is compatible with common enterprise storage devices (EMC & NetApp), giving you the flexibility of a cloud application with the peace of mind that content remains on your network.
