StreamShark is our livestream destination and VoD content management solution. We regularly livestream company town halls and external events through StreamShark. We host over 4000 videos in our VoD library through StreamShark.
  • StreamShark is a reliable livestream destination.
  • StreamShark has top quality security.
  • StreamShark is a team that listens to their clients needs.
  • Accessibility in the form of in house closed captions
  • Added customization to the front end experience
  • Additional in house analytics
For internal communications such as Town Halls, StreamShark is a perfect solution. StreamShark provides the necessary security needed for private companies as well as a tried and true viewing experience for the end user.

We use StreamShark primarily as a video streaming platform for live events. It is used across the organization for staff meetings, training, community/industry events, etc. StreamShark addresses the following challenges:
  • Localized (within Australia) ingestion and redistribution of live video streams.
  • Protection of video streams through integration with SSO.
  • Localized media ingestion, encode, redistribution.
  • Multiple homepages for channels e.g. one for public and one for internal.
StreamShark is very well suited for live streaming!
The customer support from StreamShark is exceptional. Always very responsive and quick resolution which is often needed just before an event goes live.

StreamShark is currently utilized by our Corporate Communications team to host and live stream video content across the business. Service Stream needs to be able to communicate messages through the video medium across 2,000 employees and 19 offices. Our video host needs to be scalable and stable which StreamShark provides.
  • Easy to use interface.
  • Fast buffering and load times.
  • Mobile responsiveness.
  • Channel support (see YouTube channels).
  • More Webinar options, i.e. polls and attendance.
  • Better reporting (see Zoom, i.e. advanced attendance logs, attention tracking).
Well suited for live stream scenarios. It's an easy to use plug-in with Epiphan hardware and provides a stable environment for videographers to play in.

Not suited for on-demand hosting in large organizations that have Office 365/Microsoft Stream licenses. The ability to connect Active Directory to Microsoft Stream is a killer feature, can StreamShark implement this function?
Great response times, had personal help from James when needed, felt like an extremely valued customer.

StreamShark is utilized by our organization to broadcast internal live events to employees. We also use this platform to manage our Video-On-Demand archives.


  • StreamShark has an excellent live support model, which gives us real-time support on live stream productions. Another feature we like is the Okta SSO integration. This makes it simple to manage access to the videos and streams.
  • Our account manager, James Broberg, is an absolute pleasure to work with. He clearly has our goals in mind when he suggests the new features in our bi-weekly meeting.
  • Additionally, the StreamShark support team, namely, Yudong, Robert, and Aakanksha drive our requests to completion in a timely manner.
  • The look and feel of the GUI is user-friendly.
  • It would be great to encode using Variable Bit Rate. This would allow for potential network savings by optimizing unused bits while still allowing to deliver higher quality video.
  • We’d like to see user-level access and not just admin-level access. This would be a limited-access role, but would still allow users to upload videos, understand insights, and manage streaming content.
StreamShark is well-suited for large one-to-many broadcasts, but there are more nimble videoconferencing solutions that can accommodate smaller attendance collaborative events, primarily due to the near real-time nature of videoconferencing solutions.
StreamShark provides prompt service that helps us maintain the availability of our streaming services.
