MONTREAL, CANADA — September 22, 2015 — Haivision, a market leader in video streaming and media management solutions, announces Scheduler, a new feature in the Haivision Video Cloud that helps organizations create online broadcast channels by easily scheduling live streams and VOD content to play out at a specific times throughout the day or continuously 24/7.
As live video content continues to captivate online audiences, organizations are turning to the Haivision Video Cloud to build online viewing experiences that capture the essence of a live broadcast. Using the Haivision Video Cloud Scheduler, organizations can combine live and VOD content to build simulated-live experiences that create more engaging interactions online without the added stress, pressure, and risk associated with a live production. The Scheduler feature also gives organizations the ability to target, market to and connect with their international audiences, creating simulated-live experiences for specific times zones.
The Scheduler pulls live feeds and VOD assets from the Haivision Video Cloud’s Video Content Management System and pre-populates content for playout throughout the week, at designated times. The Scheduler includes a countdown feature that drives audiences to share in the online viewing experience at the same time, helping organizations ensure that message boards are administered at peak viewing times, promoting engagement.
“Companies worldwide are increasing participation and engagement by sharing simulated live experiences online,” said Chance Mason, EVP Global Commercial Sales & Internet Media Services, Haivision. “The Haivision Video Cloud and Scheduler make it possible to break through the noise and create a more engaging and cohesive experience for viewers.”
