Haivision has announced Scheduler, for the Haivision Video Cloud.

Scheduler helps organisations create online broadcast channels by scheduling live streams and video-on-demand (VOD) content to play out at a specific time throughout the day or continuously 24/7.

Organisations can also combine live and VOD content to build simulated-live experiences that create interactions online without the added stress, pressure and risk associated with a live production. This is useful for global companies looking to connect with international audiences, who can create simulated-live experiences for specific time zones.

The Scheduler pulls live feeds and VOD assets from the Haivision Video Cloud's Video Content Management System and pre-populates content for playout throughout the week, at designated times. It includes a countdown feature that drives audiences to share in the online viewing experience at the same time, helping organisations ensure that message boards are administered at peak viewing times, promoting engagement.

"Companies worldwide are increasing participation and engagement by sharing simulated live experiences online," said Chance Mason, EVP for global commercial sales & internet media services, Haivision. "The Haivision Video Cloud and Scheduler make it possible to break through the noise and create a more engaging and cohesive experience for viewers."
