Primestream Infrastructure Drives Long-Term Remote Production Workflows for Cisco Global Television
A pioneering leader in information technology, Cisco Global Television is well-known for its technologies and product lines enabling collaboration and remote workflows. Two examples are the Webex video conferencing platform and the TelePresence SX80 product line, which works almost like a very low-latency “satellite in a box” for video collaboration. The company’s corporate video production arm, Cisco Television, produces about 1,500 broadcasts a year including around 250 external productions for audiences around the world. Cisco TV productions range from the Cisco Live tradeshow, Cisco Partner Summit, and Impact national sales meeting to product launches, webinars, and events such as those for the Cisco STEM program.
For several years, Cisco TV has relied on a comprehensive infrastructure of Primestream solutions to manage and automate all corporate media operations from capture and ingest through to delivery. Primestream’s Workflow Server manages ingest and automated master control playout, working in concert with the Primestream Xchange™ media asset management (MAM) platform.
Thomas Edwards from FOX will deliver a short presentation on the benefits of AMWA IS-series followed by a panel featuring Costas Colombus (BCE), Ole Skogheim (TV2), Subha Dhesikan (Cisco) and John Mailhot (Imagine Communications) to discuss existing and newer installation connection strategies
For reliable IP media operation, bandwidth needs to be reserved for flows and the network needs to be protected from unauthenticated senders and receivers. AMWA NMOS IS-06 Network Control is a publicly available multi-vendor interface specification between a broadcast controller and one or more network controllers. Find out from Thomas Edwards (VP Engineering & Development, Fox) and Subha Dhesikan (Principal Engineer, Cisco) how it allows the broadcast controller to learn about network topology, to authorize endpoints, and to allow networked media flows to move with reserved bandwidth, and it is supported by multiple network equipment companies to avoid vendor lock-in.
