HyperStream Live is a pay-per-use live video cloud transcoding software-as-a-service (SaaS) that enables adaptive bitrate delivery of source video content over the Internet, requiring minimal uplink bandwidth from the source location. By leveraging the award-winning Kulabyte live transcoding software, HyperStream Live automates the process and makes it easy for content creators to deliver high-quality video over the Internet to any popular mobile device. HyperStream Live is also a key component of the Haivision Video Cloud, an end-to-end online video management platform that simplifies live and on-demand video content publishing workflows.
Ideally suited for live events, HyperStream Live and the underlying KulaByte software-based transcoder have powered global video streaming for a number of high-profile events such as SXSW music festivals, Louis Vuitton product launches and store openings, the MTV Movie Awards, and countless corporate broadcasts. HyperStream Live has also recently expanded its support of automated streaming directly from the Newtek TriCaster, extending the reach of the TriCaster to audiences on any device and enhancing streaming quality through the application of adaptive bitrate streaming.
