Keys to Building a Pay TV Caliber Multiscreen & nPVR Infrastructure


Eliminating Appliance Sprawl Is Key to IP Video Migration

edgewareIn this infographic Edgeware addresses the challenge service providers face with the traditional approach to using origin server clusters to support the recording, storage, packaging, streaming and load balancing requirements of ever increasing volumes of multiscreen service channels. As illustrated here, what would otherwise become an impossibly huge array of origins as the streaming volume goes up can be reduced to just a handful with use of the Edgeware VCP Origin solution.
