Yes, due to currently using an external provider for its video capabilities, HipChat Server still requires some internet connectivity for video as outlined in the HipChat Server FAQs, see Does HipChat Server need outbound internet access?:

HipChat Server uses outbound internet access for the following reasons:

  • Fetching upgrade information from Atlassian
  • Fetching integration listings from the Atlassian Marketplace
  • Routing video traffic through our Cloud video server
  • Sending mobile notifications for Android and IOS devices

[emphasis mine]

This is further confirmed in the referenced System Requirements, see Outbound TCP Ports:

I would hope that this might change some day due to Atlassian's recent acquisition of Blue Jimp & Jitsi.org, however, I'm not aware of any roadmap details in this regard.
