Cisco at CES is turning heads of traditional service providers, media and OTT companies as it showcases cloud-powered networked entertainment solutions and how the companies can deliver multiscreen TV experiences from one cloud, over any access network, anywhere.
Cisco’s Infinitecloud software is currently available as a service (aaS) globally catering over 70 content and service providers.
Cisco, in September rolled out two new Infinite suite products that support the delivery of full-featured TV, the one is Infinite Home: A multiscreen video solution for two-way telcos and cable service providers.
Other, Infinite Video: An over-the-top (OTT)video solution for content and service providers; This now supports the delivery of content to a broader range of devices, including Roku boxes, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, and multiple companion and second screen devices.
At CES, Cisco is introducing the third member of its Infinite Solutions suite which is the Infinite Broadcast: A multiscreen video solution for one-way and hybrid satellite and cable service providers.
“We needed a cloud solution that could support our needs to quickly expand the variety of services for our customers across multiples screens. We also needed a new user guide that could simply blend multiple sources of content,” said Erdoğan Şimşek, CTO, D-Smart. “Cisco offered us a flexible cloud software solution to easily merge the worlds of online video and live broadcast TV.”
D-Smart, the Turkish TV provider of both satellite digital broadcasting and Internet services, is working closely with Cisco to transform its D-Smart Blu multiscreen service with Cisco’s Infinite Broadcast solution.
“Through cloud innovation, Cisco is helping its customers change how their video is delivered and viewed, so they can thrive in the emerging cloud era,” said Yves Padrines, vice president, Global Service Provider, Cisco EMEAR. “Infinite Solutions help customers like D-Smart benefit from a system that allows them quick service introduction, with frequent updates that can be delivered in minutes vs. months.”
