ONE CONNXT Praised for Cloud-Services Demos at IBC2012
ONE CONNXT has been praised for its new cloud services demonstration following IBC2012 in Amsterdam.
ONE CONNXT’s cloud service is a virtual storage system for content that allows regional time shifting and anytime playback. Only one decoder is necessary as the cloud allows clients to simplify their operations to a single centralized management console. The console is used to record content for later use in ONE CONNXT’s secure cloud based environment. The console’s centralized administration real-time scheduling interface is then used to schedule resources to play out accordingly in different time zones. Metadata fields are available for customized content identification.
IBC attendees were given a full demonstration of ONE CONNXT cloud services capabilities. ONE CONNXT held broad appeal for a variety of broadcast entities. Veteran broadcasters from around the world representing satellite operators, television channels, play out centers, television consultants, production houses, and more attended the demonstration.
“While we knew that ONE CONNXT would be using our feed in their demo, it was our first time seeing the ONE CONNXT cloud in action,” according to Mustafa Tell, GM of Broadcast Operations at ART. “It takes a versatile product and makes it even easier to use. It will be much simpler to distribute content across time zones with fewer expensive equipment needs.”
They showed interest in ONE CONNXT after they saw it in action as ONE CONNXT pulled live feeds from its sister company ONE World Sports in Singapore and client Arab Radio & Television (ART) in Jordan’s Media Center into the cloud. The broadcasters were then shown how easy it was to schedule content distribution through the cloud administrative interface.
“The cloud is a huge advancement in technology for the broadcast industry,” said Dave Almstead, CEO ONE Media Corp, the parent company of ONE CONNXT. “Until now, broadcasters had to spend a lot of money and manpower to move content across time zones. ONE CONNXT’s cloud services eliminate duplication in equipment needs and streamline the process. ONE CONNXT and the cloud provide total stability for your current network, with complete flexibility for all platforms, Whether you are sending a live feed from a sporting event, backing up your entire network, or simply sending service from a hard to reach location, ONE CONNXT always has you covered.”
