VELTEN chooses StriveCast as a strategic partner for internal video delivery via eCDN

We are happy to announce that VELTEN, an experienced full-service event agency based in Germany, partners with StriveCast to use our eCDN solution for reliable video delivery within corporate networks.

The VELTEN GmbH is a general service provider for everything event-related – be it on-site, fully remote, or hybrid. VELTEN offers their customers a variety of services from the organization, technical equipment, and presentation for internal and external events.

Innovation is key – adapting to new situations with the right partners and technology

Although on-site events were no longer an option due to the strict distancing rules in 2020, big players like Adidas, Commerzbank, and Fresenius still wanted and needed to host their internal town halls and general meetings to all shareholders. As canceling was not an option, they reached out to VELTEN to provide virtual or hybrid solutions.
VELTEN has years of experience in digital events, as they had been diversifying and using innovative technologies ever since. Therefore, they could quickly adapt to the new situation and entirely focus on remote and hybrid events.

In the year 2020 alone, VELTEN organized more than 80 virtual events, including:

  • Annual Meetings
  • Medical Congresses
  • Town Hall Meetings
  • Press Conferences
  • Analysts Conferences
  • Capital Market days
  • General Meetings

The future of the event industry is hybrid

The development of 2021 so far justifies the hope that on-site events will become realistic again. Many companies have already implemented a safe hybrid working approach with rotation systems. Employees are slowly coming back to the office or plan to do so for the summer. Still, it is unlikely that our newly established video habits will change, and we will go back to full offline events again.

As such, VELTEN searched for a solution that ensures and optimizes video delivery for corporate networks when employees start to access live video streams from within the company. As VELTEN is a full-service provider, they didn’t want to leave the problem of network congestion caused by the increased video consumption to their customers but provide a solution themselves.

Therefore, VELTEN chose StriveCast as their strategic partner for enterprise content delivery networks:

As a professional event agency, it is our job to deliver the best quality of experience for our events, be it on-site or remote. We, therefore, searched for a solution that ensures the quality and availability of a video stream even within corporate networks and limited infrastructures. With StriveCast’s eCDN, we found a solution that works for our customers and makes sure all participants enjoy the event’s live video stream in the way it is intended – without crashing the corporate network.

StriveCast’s eCDN for internal video delivery

Even when only a fraction of employees come back to the office, delivering a virtual town hall meeting via video stream is a heavy burden for the network. Corporate networks are usually not designed for delivering vast amounts of (video) data. That is why companies and event agencies fear providing live streams for events when many employees or viewers access the video stream from within the network. Network congestion, low video quality, and accessibility problems can result, and the increased bandwidth usage can even jeopardize other business-critical applications.

StriveCast offers an enterprise Content Delivery Network (eCDN) that integrates the viewers into the video delivery process. As the devices need to stream the same video content simultaneously, they can now directly share video content, resulting in fewer requests to the origin server and significantly reduced bandwidth requirements.
