Polycom Video Edge™ (PVE™) 1000 Streaming Video Server
The Polycom® Video Edge™ (PVE™) 1000 platform is a video streaming distribution appliance that efficiently streams live and on-demand
business video securely to hundreds or thousands of desktops within enterprise networks.
The Polycom PVE 1000 solution provides significant reduction in network bandwidth as well as increased scale and reliability for live and on-demand video streaming.
Reliable, Cost-effective Video Distribution
The Polycom PVE 1000 platform is an affordable system for scalable delivery of multiformat video content within an enterprise Wide Area Network. It reduces network bandwidth required for large, live video casts by creating a single path from the source to the PVE appliance at the network edge. It then splits the video to the end viewers on the local network. It also load balances and provides multiple network path options to ensure viewers will be able to receive the video stream reliably. With advanced caching of content viewed or previously pushed to the Polycom Video Edge appliance, network bandwidth is conserved.
Delivered in a small secure hardened appliance form factor, or as a software option on Riverbed® Steelhead® appliances, it includes monitoring and management by the Polycom Video Media Center™ (VMC™) 1000. It supports multiple video formats such as Windows Media®, H.264, Flash®, and .mp3 formats; and protocols including progressive download, http streaming, RTSP, RTMP, and multicast support. The Polycom PVE 1000 platform empowers customers to update distributed teams simultaneously with the most up-to-date material, including audio and video, documents, images and other presentation material.
