The business of producing and delivering video for multiple screen devices is a dominant and ever-growing portion of the content delivery network market. This is a hotly contended space from both communication service providers (CSPs) and everyone else in the industry including cable operators, over-the-top (OTT) vendors, broadcasters and digital PayTV providers.
The majority of video content delivery has gone all IP and, depending on the business model, is being run across either private or public cloud infrastructure, or both. The side effect is a commoditization of solutions that: makes it increasingly difficult to find differentiation among competitors; and, deployed systems are difficult to modify or upgrade as business models are re-evaluated, resolutions and configurations change, and video standards themselves are changing.
In response, Kontron developed hardware that is at once powerful, easily reconfigurable, and power-efficient. It supplies all the necessary throughput, reliability and density to maximize an operator’s revenue per HD and even UHD video stream.
