At the start of the content journey, creator grapple with a file based workflow that has moved from standard to 4K video with more demands placed on storage capacity and throughput. In distribution, fierce competition amongst a new generation of video-on-demand services such as Netflix and Hulu is placing pressure on broadcasters and pay-TV operators to reduce costs while creating storage architectures able to meet new drivers like cloud-based DVR.
However, traditional storage architectures designed for enterprise customers often fail to meet the usage profile of M&E use cases. While many broadcast industry specific technologies often come with a price premium without the flexibility needed to adapt to a rapidly changing IP centric world.
Proven in the industry
The internet revolution is fuelling consumer demands with audiences demanding more content delivered in higher quality. As such, storage architectures need to adapt. For over a decade, the AoE technology has been successfully deployed within large M&E pioneers including national broadcasters and internet based content providers. One such example is a major Northern European broadcaster that is using several petabytes of AoE based storage to underpin the production workflow and playout of multiple TV channels, internet based streaming and on-demand services. Full details and testimonials of this project and other examples within M&E are available on request.
