How do I stream to an Intranet ?

An intranet is a private online network that is only accessible to internal staff or a specially selected audience. Streaming to an intranet is an efficient way to deliver your video content to a specific audience within your organization.

This article will guide you on how to stream videos directly to the Intranet using a CDN specifically with Mux and Bitmovin, both of which are offered by InEvent.

What is a CDN?
A CDN which stands for Content Delivery Network, is a network of servers that distribute content to viewers across the globe. It helps to ensure that your content is delivered efficiently and quickly.
This functionality requires you to be separately subscribed to any of the CDN providers offered by InEvent.
