At the CES 2014, Cisco announced the expansion of Videoscape TV services.
New cloud video capabilities include Videoscape as-a-service offering and open cloud software technologies based on OpenStack.
Cisco says these added capabilities will help service providers and media companies enhance agility, increase revenue and reduce operating expenses.
“With these new Videoscape cloud capabilities, our customers have two additional ways to deploy Videoscape, meaning they can get new services to market faster than ever before,” said Joe Cozzolino, senior vice president and general manager, Service Provider Video Infrastructure, Cisco.
“Plus our unique Cisco Fusion strategy allows customers to mix-and-match deployment options to best grow revenue and reduce their overall costs to roll out video services, including exciting second screen, 4K video and IoE based Connected Life services,” Cozzolino added.
With new software and technology for both private and public cloud services, this comprehensive new set of Videoscape cloud capabilities, part of the broader corporate virtualization strategy, will give service providers and media companies the ability to capitalize on the Internet of Everything.
Together, they will provide simplified options to quickly deliver new consumer experiences, such as second screen and 4Kvideo, and offer more customization and personalization for viewing and sharing content across multiple devices.
Hubert Cariou, director, Bouygues Telecom, said: “Together with Cisco, we have tested and proven the value of innovative cloud-powered services. With shorter development and deployment intervals for new products, we view cloud as a way to help lower the costs of introducing new services with extremely flexible scalability.”
