WHY IS MEDIA DISTRIBUTION SO COMPLICATED
Many media and entertainment organizations struggle with the challenges of content storage, transformation, and distribution. As production standards rise from HD to UHD/4K, 8K, and beyond, the amount of data associated with any given project grows exponentially. Adding to these concerns are the rapidly changing methods of bringing media content to consumers. Broadcast over a limited number of channels has given way to hundreds of ways to consume media via over-the-air, cable, satellite and Internet connections, using broadcast, on-demand, and streaming models.This whitepaper outlines the drivers behind this challenge and explores the advantages of an IP-based media center solution. Finally, it discusses Cisco’s Media Data Center platform. DOWNLOAD
