Reliable video hosting and incredibly fast streaming video
The House of Yoga was looking for a reliable partner to host and stream its video content. The VIXY infrastructure, hosted on servers at NEP in the Netherlands, makes it possible to upload and transcode a large number of videos. This allows for millions of people across the world to access House of Yoga. From its data center, NEP supplies video content to Fox Sports, Videloand on Demand, Pathé Thuis, and the NPO Plus platform, just to name a few. NEP The Netherlands is a shareholder of VIXY.
Find the right yoga studio with extensive searching & filtering
The House of Yoga offers an extensive video database, consisting of various yoga styles, teachers, and programs. It does not matter whether you enjoy a long yoga session or prefer brief meditation: you choose the format, the time, and the location that you watch.
On the video channel, users can quickly find the right videos by using smart filters like: style, teacher, program, video length, level, or instructor name. The advanced, internal search engine shows results based on video title, description, tags, categories, and additional metadata such as subtitles.
More traffic to the video channel with SEO optimization
The video channel is SEO optimized, both in terms of content as well as technology, which draws more traffic to The House of Yoga from the most important search engines, such as Google. This provides each video with its own page and unique URL structure and all video content is automatically sent to Google via an RSS site map.
Video trailers, vouchers, and subscriptions
A free teaser of every video is available on the channel. This allows visitors to the House of Yoga to watch a video trailer without access to the entire video. Additionally, visitors can opt for a free trial month. Within just a few seconds, you can create an account via Facebook or Google Connect.
To gain unlimited access to the complete offering of yoga videos, the House of Yoga decided on a subscription model. You can subscribe for €10 per month or €84 per year.
