Don't just take our word for it. Here is what our customers have to say...

“The Australian Government has embarked upon an ambitious, challenging, but necessary agenda, to improve the way services are delivered to the Australian public” – State of the Service Report 2015.

“Viostream has enabled real-time communication to all staff delivering improved engagement and significant savings in travel and disruption for  briefings” – quote from a Federal Government Department.


“It’s always a pleasure working with people who know what they are doing, and yesterday showed that the people involved with our video streaming solution (and Viostream as an organisation) certainly know what they are doing.  I’d like to thank each of you for the work you have put in over the past few weeks, but I’d also like to extend the thanks to all the guys working behind the scenes as well” - quote from a Federal agency.
“NSW government agency x needed a solution to upload live and on-demand video content from the field and manage the distribution of this rich media content to media, internal viewers and the public” – quote from a NSW State government agency.
“We really needed videos to be integrated with the digital services. So we wanted to transition between online content into a video back to a service in a really integrated way...” – quote Assistant Commissioner, at a Federal agency.
“There were many parties involved today, and Viostream were one of the best performers. You had great communication, all equipment and services supplied by you guys worked 100%. Lots of problems elsewhere so thank you for your help” – quote from a NSW State agency.
“We wanted to say thank you for going above and beyond to make today happen. We wouldn’t have been able to pull today off without your continuing level of support and your ability to work with the team to deliver events that push the boundaries of technology and the industry. This was an unprecedented level of success for us, and we’re looking forward to working together to drive our livestream service to the next level over the next 12 months” – quote from a Federal Government agency.
“We’ve used Viostream to set up an ‘agency TV channel’ as one of our main internal communication channels. We distribute corporate messages to staff in a relevant, timely and engaging format. We share information between branches and most importantly throughout our state network. And we create a rich and lasting pool of information for all staff to access” – Acting Director - Corporate Communications - from a Federal Government agency.

“I love the concept of ‘turn on and go’” – quote from large Government Department, on Viostream's live stream services.
