Haivision Launches All-New Cloud Platform

News Image
Haivision has launched an all-new cloud platform designed for churches – Haivision Connect.

The livestreaming solution opens new possibilities for churches to easily connect and engage with audiences from anywhere.

Built for churches and ministries of all sizes, Haivision Connect is an easy-to-use live and simulated-live streaming platform that helps these organizations reach viewers online simultaneously with embeddable web players, mobile and OTT apps, and through social media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, and more. With the all-new Connect, users can schedule livestreams, manage devices, and monitor events, all from a single browser window. Connect’s user-friendly interface enables anyone, even non-technical volunteers, to quickly set up a high-quality reliable livestream.

The growing complexity of video streaming across multiple platforms to reach viewers anywhere, coupled with technology which is not user-friendly for volunteers or non-technical staff, can make livestreaming for churches both challenging and intimidating. And, without the right tools to measure the impact of their streaming efforts, ministries can find it difficult to know how to improve audience engagement.

"Haivision Connect has been carefully designed with ministry workflows in mind," said Daniel Alexander, Director Product Management, Haivision. "By combining Haivision’s award-winning technology, including the SRT protocol and the highly reliable Makito video encoder, with an all-new cloud platform that matches the way ministries work, Haivision Connect ushers in a new era of streaming that makes it easier than ever for churches to share their message and engage with their audiences."

Haivision Connect simplifies the complexities of video streaming by giving ministries the ability to:

Engage audiences on the platforms they love: Reach viewers anywhere and simultaneously stream to embedded web players, mobile apps, and social media including YouTube and Facebook.
Rebroadcast with sim-live: Maximize the reach of content by leveraging previously recorded or uploaded media for scheduled sim-live events.
Better understand viewers: Access meaningful insights into what content is resonating with audiences with advanced analytics that track audience views, engagement time, and more in real-time.
Manage it all from a browser or tablet: Schedule events, set up metadata, manage devices, and monitor streams all from a single cloud UI.

Haivision Connect uses the same reliable broadcast-quality technology trusted by thousands of organizations worldwide including major broadcasters, corporations, and government agencies for their mission-critical video applications. Backed by dedicated, experienced support experts available 24/7, Haivision Connect allows users to stream with complete confidence.

Already tested and adopted by numerous churches, Haivision Connect is set to transform the way that ministries stream video.

Joshua Hays, Network and Audio-Visual Support Specialist, First Presbyterian Church Colorado Springs said: "We love using Haivision Connect! There are so many great features, and you don’t need to be tech-savvy to use it. Analytics are easy, and with one simple click, you can see the key viewing statistics that pastors want to know about.

"When I started using the new Haivision Connect interface, I was impressed with how simple everything was," said Roxane Griner, Communications Director, Grace City Church. "I love the look and the many features that help make it easy to schedule and launch to multiple platforms with just a few clicks. I also love having all the demographics of our audience so easily accessible. I love most that Haivision has considered their clients' needs and implemented features that make livestreaming a breeze for any skill level."
