As the AoIP debate continues to confuse and delight in equal measure, what is clear is different scenarios require specific solutions. So is there a solution that encompasses open standards and existing proven AoIP technologies to the benefit of all? By definition, network infrastructure (switches, routers and cables) is protocol and technology agnostic, it carries data. This is one of the primary reasons to use IP technology in a broadcast facility, the same infrastructure can carry different formats of video and audio data. Key to developments are open standards, ensuring the widest potential future interoperability. Key to real-world installations are system requirements and technology choices driven by the application, or specific usage case. The market share of AoIP technology stacks is also an important factor to consider for interoperability. At this point on the standards adoption curve for audio, the use of licenced AoIP technology stacks provides the widest guaranteed interoperability and greatest functionality when considering audio specific routing requirements.
A global social and digital media company based in North America and Europe was exploring new business ventures within China but lacked a hybrid cloud interconnect solution for the highly regulated and unique Chinese market. The Client was an existing CoreSite customer, which provided the path to a simple solution. The Client turned to Zenlayer, a Coresite Open Cloud Exchange® and co-location partner, to bridge their network gap. Using Zenlayer Cloud Networking the Client was able to deploy a complete hybrid-cloud environment across their infrastructure within just a week.
Many of us would recall when even a simple task, like webpage loading, appeared to be a lifetime wait. In the last two decades, web browsing experience has come a long way, and now not only do we browse faster – we surf, shop, learn, get entertained, and virtually live our lives on a browser. We are in a digital era where even ordering a pizza is a click away. With being online becoming a norm in this virtual age of smartphones, the seamless performance of a brand on digital platforms plays the most significant role in engaging a visitor. How do we make digital platforms highly interactive and personalized without sacrificing performance? Content Delivery Network (CDN), along with Dynamic Caching, helps achieve this. In this blog, let's look behind the scenes and learn about the role of CDNs in improving website performance with dynamic content caching.
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.

With more than 100,000 V-Ray users around the world in high-pressure industries such as design, TV, and film, it’s essential that Chaos Group can deliver downloads quickly and reliably. These software assets and builds are extremely large – its material library, for example, is around 8GB – and the company’s users need easy, hassle-free access to these files. At the same time, Chaos Group needs to be able to control its budgets and scale up download traffic without costs becoming unrealistic. “We launched a new product in the earlier part of 2020 and we knew that downloads would increase by about four or five times,” comments Krasimir Nachev, Team Lead DevOps/SysAdmin at Chaos Group. “We needed to find a partner that could help us deliver these large assets reliably and cost-effectively, and has the global reach to serve our customers worldwide.”
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.
