Videoscape Gains Further Traction with Service Providers
Last week at IBC 2011, Cisco announced several examples of how we are implementing Cisco Videoscape™ with International Service Providers. Cisco Videoscape is a service provider solution that lets consumers bring together content from pay TV, online, and on-demand sources to create a truly immersive TV experience on any device.
KT, Korea’s leading telecommunications service provider, will be deploying Videoscape Media Suite and shares Cisco’s Videoscape vision and strategy to evolve their network over time to deliver content across TV, PC, mobile and tablet screens.
Telenor Satellite Broadcasting AS (TSBc) has partnered with Cisco to power the company’s new encoding platform for Web-based TV. TSBc will be deploying the Cisco Videoscape Media Processor to help stream its channels across multiple screens. TSBc selected Cisco to help ensure an exceptional quality of experience across a range of devices for the company’s live online and mobile coverage of the Norwegian national football championships at an optimized total cost of ownership.
Cisco is also working with Virgin Media to further enhance the company’s network by deploying DOCSIS 3.0 technology to deliver high speed Internet services on the company’s existing network infrastructure. Virgin Media conducted a successful trial of the Cisco 3G60 line card to achieve ground-breaking broadband speeds with downloads up to 1.5 Gbps.
These customer announcements further demonstrate Cisco’s commitment and momentum in helping its service provider partners to reinvent the way consumers experience video content.
