Benefits of Video Content Management
Video Content Management solutions provide the core software platform for building and deploying on-demand video delivery applications on open computing platforms and storage systems. The Video Content Management application is a 100% open, standards-based video server platform that runs on non-proprietary hardware, storage and operating systems. In addition, the Video Content Management application supports the applications in multiple markets, including cable and telecom, and is integrated with the leading set-top boxes, middleware applications, encoders and network equipment providers.
The Video Content Management application enables real-time on-demand streaming and provides a scalable video on-demand server that can deliver video via unicast, scheduled multicast (live or with a stored asset) or simulated multicast (live or stored asset). The Video Content Management application enables live streaming of video while recording to disk and provides high quality VCR controls such as Fast Forward/Rewind, Pause, Stop, and Play, for video on-demand streaming. In addition, the Video Content Management application provides broad coverage for deployments in narrowband, broadband, and broadcast networks using standards-based streaming formats including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4.
Successful Video Content Management applications start simple with a single server servicing a few users and then quickly evolve to multiple clusters of video servers servicing tens of thousands of users. This kind of growth introduces significant management, monitoring and workflow challenges that affect the total cost of ownership of the system. The Video Content Management application helps solve these challenges. The Video Content Management application simplifies the management of video network by centralizing the operation, management and control of all video servers on the network under one application.
The Video Content Management application provides sophisticated content, metadata, workflow, and distribution management tools which simplify the processes such as the operation, management, and controlling of all video servers, to reduce operating costs, capital equipment costs, and create a more profitable video service. In addition, the Video Content Management application provides the core components necessary to manage your entire video network, which include content management, metadata management, content usage monitoring, workflow management, configuration and administration, distribution management, and reporting.
The Video Content Management application provides a completely new way of developing and deploying video services using the power of Web Services. As an industry standard and well-known development environment for building and integrating applications, Web Services are now applied to the realm of video with the Video Content Management application. The Video Content Management application brings interactive IP video application development to mainstream computing through a powerful, web services-based on-demand services framework.
Developers and system integrators can deploy the Video Content Management application to easily build, integrate, and deploy on-demand applications with customized design and functionality. Some of the benefits of the Video Content Management application include simplifies development, integration, and deployment of video delivery applications, reduces high initial deployment costs, speeds rollout of new revenue-generating services, and standards-based approach avoids lock-in from traditional, proprietary vendors. Additional benefits of the Video Content Management application include simplification of operational challenges in monitoring end-to-end applications, leveraging well-known web services paradigms, and simplification of custom application development.
