MediaPlatform and Kollective Webinar to Showcase Joint Live Webcasting Offering

LOS ANGELES, CA – November 7, 2018 – MediaPlatform, a leading enterprise webcasting and video content management platform for the Global 2000, today announced a joint webinar with Kollective, a leading enterprise content delivery network (eCDN), that will cover the benefits customers are achieving by using MediaPlatform’s enterprise video platform and Kollective’s enterprise content delivery network as an integrated deployment.

Driven by customer demand, MediaPlatform and Kollective engineering teams joined forces to enable customers to design, launch, and monitor live webcasts using MediaPlatform’s industry-leading WebCaster platform and optimize internal video delivery to employees using the Kollective eCDN.  Among other features, the combined solution includes a new, Kollective failover option from HLS to RTMP to seamlessly transition viewers to RTMP where HLS is not available.

Technical experts Bill Accola, MediaPlatform Vice President Professional Services and Customer Success, and Tony Gooch, Kollective Product Manager – Integrations, will host the webinar, which will be delivered via MediaPlatform’s live webcasting platform.

The event takes place on November 13th at 11:00 PST/2:00 EST.

“Traditionally, scalable content distribution behind the firewall has been challenging.  By integrating into Kollective’s eCDN, we’re able to not only offer peering as a distribution option, but we’re able to achieve even greater scale and reliability,” said Mike Newman, CEO of MediaPlatform. “This collaboration gives even more backup and failsafe delivery options to our customers, so they can continue to be confident and proficient business broadcasters across their own networks,” Newman said.

“The integration we’ve built with the MediaPlatform team will provide a robust video experience for enterprises, insuring engaging functionality for employees and internal communications teams and minimal bandwidth impact for IT teams,” said Dan Vetras, CEO of Kollective.
