Across the globe, Haivision solutions power a wide range of video streaming applications for enterprise, education, medical, broadcast, and government organizations. Haivision’s growth in EMEA is highlighted by an expanded presence in Germany, home to its European headquarters, sales and technical support team as well as a research and development division.
