| August 28, 2018

A content delivery network is a spine that keeps internet content up and running. The social media posts, youtube videos, e-commerce websites, live streaming, everything that we skim on a daily basis, makes us to come in contact with CDN.CDN is deployed in different physical locations/countries known as Points of Presence – PoP that captures cached versions of content and deliver when requested, thus, delivering content faster within the CDN’s proximity.When it comes to streaming, more specifically, live streaming and video streaming, the entire process relies on the functionality of CDN. Without video CDN, what might take around 300ms(milliseconds) to travel across the globe for a one-way latency (ie., for the data to be transmitted one way.) can be reduced to half the time consumed. A round trip latency would drink up even more time than a single trip. Though the time taken for transmitting the content might not seem like a great loss, it completely changes the way live streaming and on-demand videos would be approached.

Article | May 21, 2021

Music streaming contrasts sharply with video streaming. While the video marketplace is characterised by unique catalogues, a variety of pricing and diverse value propositions music streaming services are all at their core fundamentally the same product. When the market was in its hyper-growth phase and there were enough new users to go around, it did not matter too much that the streaming services only had branding, curation and interface to differentiate themselves from each other. Now that we are approaching a slowdown in the high-revenue developed markets, more is needed. Which is where Hi-Res comes in.

3 Major Companies Behind the World's Most Valuable Media Franchises

Article | February 26, 2020

The top-grossing movie (Avengers: Endgame) and the top-grossing video game (World of Warcraft) of all time are both part of franchises -- long-running media properties with multiple iterations and derivative works spawned from a core creative concept, like superheroes saving the world, or an orc invasion. Their massive successes were built over years of careful audience cultivation. But Marvel's cinematic universe, and the world of Warcraft, are more outliers than inevitabilities. Sequels are rarely sure things, and many franchise attempts have failed, sometimes even taking entire companies down with them.
