Industry surveys show that if a page takes more than 3 seconds to load, over 50% of users will terminate the visit. From social media to online shopping, the content we consume on the internet is becoming increasingly personalized, interactive, and dynamic. In this blog post, we are going to talk about how content delivery networks accelerate dynamic content.
While the industry was already increasingly moving towards models of remote and distributed working in all aspects of the workflow, the events of 2020 have provided a dramatic accelerant to this trend. The requirements of Covid-mandated social distancing protocols have added to the already compelling economic arguments for remote work, and meant that media organisations are looking for solutions that can accommodate the data flows of the new IP-based broadcast ecosystem reliably and securely with the high performance criteria that broadcast video — especially live broadcast video — requires.
In this presentation, Edgeware’s Johan Bolin demonstrates the role of automation regarding real-time video QoE monitoring and service assurance and the ways it can improve how teams operate and video services perform in the current streaming climate.
SNS VPN is here, and there, and everywhere.
Remote editing workflows are a necessity for today’s production and post-production environments. The need for rapidly deployable remote access solutions has never been greater. To help creative teams stay connected to their media from everywhere, we are excited to introduce our new cloud-hosted VPN service for EVO users: SNS VPN.
Your team can now access their media storage server from anywhere in the world, over a safe and secure connection with SNS VPN, the virtual private network exclusively for EVO.
Remote editing is all the rage these days. But just because everyone is doing it, doesn’t mean they’re doing it well.
Many content creators and post-production teams moved from in-studio online editing to at-home offline editing workflows this year. We did too, so we understand your struggle. If you are looking for ways to optimize your remote editing workflow, here are our top eight tips, tricks, and best practices for taking your video editing projects on-the-go.
We’ll start with some general advice on working from home, then narrow down into specific remote editing solutions for the creative community. For more detailed advice on each of these tips, watch our full webinar: Editors’ Guide to Remote Video Production.
Lockwood Broadcast Group has been on the cutting edge of video delivery over IP since its inception. It has been involved in IP multicasting since 2007 and was among the first broadcasting companies to distribute HD content over IP.
Before using VideoFlow, Lockwood had worked with several vendors for video transport with various levels of success. “We looked at everything out there, tried numerous products but couldn’t find anything that gave us both the reliability and the operational efficiency that we need,” said Bob Pectelidis, Lockwood’s Corporate Director of Engineering.
A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a globally distributed network of web servers or Points of Presence (PoP) designed to provide faster and reliable content delivery. If you have a global online user base, a CDN can be of huge help to optimize your users’ digital experience across the world. Choosing a CDN that stays on top of the development of web and mobile technology and the rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape will enable you to offer the best digital experience while minimizing operational complexity and overhead.
To help you effectively meet the growing user demand on the Internet, we’ve listed out 5 golden tips
The arrival of the 5G era is generating a lot of buzz. One of the questions we hear often is: How will the implementation of 5G impact the existing CDN and in what ways? This blog is written to shed some light on this topic and explain how we believe the content delivery network (CDN) will evolve with 5G.
Whitepaper from Calnex Solutions:
As IP networks become more prevalent in professional broadcast environments, accurate synchronization using the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) is becoming a critical consideration. This paper provides background on PTP, and details on the SMPTE ‘Broadcast’ Profile.
As file sizes continue to grow, managing and delivering large files is becoming an important consideration for organizations of all sizes. Companies have abandoned the commonly used FTP/TCP protocol as a delivery method in favor of alternative file transfer solutions which provide acceleration, reliability, management, and security. Companies seeking file transfer acceleration are not limited to the high-tech sector. Organizations leveraging the benefits of acceleration are found in sectors such as media and entertainment, natural resources, supercomputing, legal, health, government, financial, manufacturing, and more. Companies using TCP-based file transfer protocols to transfer large data sets may experience slow file transfers, or even failed and/or corrupt file transfers. This failure rate can be detrimental to organizations moving large data sets on a regular basis. This wastes valuable time, especially if these transfers take hours across an otherwise healthy network. This white paper will address some of the issues organizations encounter when using TCP-based protocols. It will also outline some other common file sharing methods, and the issues inherent with each. It will then outline the FileCatalyst solutions, and how they overcome the issues surrounding slow file transfers. Finally, this paper will present a number of scenarios that showcase the advantages of...
