Kollective SD ECDN now integrates with Vidyo and BlueJeans

Sunnyvale, Calif. – Jan. 28, 2016 – Kollective, a leading cloud-based software-defined networking company, today announced Kollective Konnector, the key component in a few-to-many broadcast solution helping businesses seamlessly and simultaneously reach thousands of employees.

Integrated with the Kollective Software Defined Enterprise Content Delivery Network (SD ECDN), Kollective Konnector enables customers to leverage unified communications compliant video conferencing systems, including Vidyo and BlueJeans, as a stream source. Kollective Konnector is a cloud-based solution that consists of real-time transcoding servers and an administration portal.

“Traditional video conferencing systems were not intended to broadcast an interactive meeting to a large number of viewers, but there is an increasing business need to do so,” said Kollective President Todd Johnson. “Kollective Konnector meets that demand because it is designed specifically to leverage the Kollective SD ECDN in order to deliver video and audio at scale.”

Kollective KonnectorKollective Konnector feeds SIP / H.264 content sources into Kollective’s SD ECDN, allowing businesses to deliver video and audio to thousands of employees in a highly scalable and cost effective way. Kollective Konnector is comprised of:

  • Live Encoding servers – Pull video and audio streams from the video conferencing systems and groom them before feeding them into Kollective SD ECDN for distribution.
  • Administration portal – Allows users to set up live events and connect video conferencing sources with Kollective.

“Enterprise IT teams worldwide have invested heavily to provide sophisticated, broadly deployed video conferencing facilities,” said Johnson. “Critical to the success of video conferences, companies can increase viewership by leveraging the webcasting element of their enterprise video communication system. With Kollective Konnector they can do both.”
