Essential Guide: Hybrid CDN
The Media industry is moving into a space it has never been before – OTT at scale. Against this backdrop, this new CDN Essential Guide from The Broadcast Bridge and Vecima takes a fresh look at the future of OTT delivery. Tony Orme from The Broadcast Bridge starts with a deeper look into how CDNs work, considering the seismic shift of Broadcasters towards Direct to Consumer streaming. Vecima then applies over 2 decades of streaming video experience through its new “OTT Scale-Maturity Quadrant” that guides the reader through the key opportunities and pitfalls that OTT Operators face as they move to At-Scale OTT operations. This is an essential guide for any media business looking to reach true scale in OTT.

OTT AT SCALE: Why Large OTT Operators Need Private CDNs
The world’s biggest OTT Operators chose Private CDNs to deliver economies of scale and service excellence. As OTT consumption grows exponentially, the next wave of OTT Operators led by national broadcasters and large Sports-streaming operators will benefit from the same approach. Find out why in this e-book from Vecima

Cloud-Extensible Transcoding
Most media businesses creating VOD assets deal with peaks and troughs of transcoding workloads. Cloud-based transcoding services have become popular to expand capacity quickly, with low set-up costs, and no long-term commitments. But early adopters of cloud services have learned the pitfalls of over-dependency on a single cloud service provider and are still looking for the optimal solution.

How Archive Storage Affects Operational Efficiency
Media storage is a constantly moving target that will continue to change and evolve to meet the needs of viewers. Files are getting larger. Content libraries are getting bigger. You need a storage and delivery system that won’t buckle under the pressure. Will your storage systems help you succeed?

Innovations in Software Defined Storage for Cloud DVR and IP-Linear Digital Video
Published by SCTE-ISBE, October 2019. The emergence of object storage as a mechanism to store digital video has modernized the way video content is stored and distributed. Whereas legacy systems that utilize a traditional POSIX file system architecture store video assets as files within a directory tree, object storage allows for an asset to be stored as a “data blob” in a potentially large namespace. This method of storing data introduces a number of advantages for digital content storage and distribution.

2021 SCTE Live Learning Webinar™ Series: Putting Next-Gen PON to Work
While DOCSIS may still have plenty of fuel left in the tank, PON is rapidly emerging as a critical alternative transmission method for the cable industry as operators increasingly install more fiber lines in their HFC plant. Whether they are leveraging EPON, GPON, 10G EPON, XGS PON or some other PON flavor, cablecos and vendors are increasingly deploying some version of PON technology to expand their bandwidth capacity. How is the industry using the different PONs? Which PON versions are emerging as most popular and why? How can operators and vendors mix and match PON and DOCSIS in their networks? This webinar will tackle these questions and more.

2021 SCTE Live Learning Webinar™ Series: Fighting Fiber with More Fiber
Fighting fiber with fiber seems to be the cable industry's mantra these days. Even as they complete their rollout of DOCSIS 3.1 and start gearing up for DOCSIS 4.0, cable operators are scrambling to put more fiber in their ever-evolving HFC networks. That’s because fiber continues to be the biggest enabler of most—if not all—of the technological, financial, operational, and competitive gains that operators are seeking. Yet, even as they invest more heavily in fiber, operators still face critical questions about how to leverage those investments to the fullest. This recorded webinar, featuring Vijay Raman, Vecima Networks Vice President of Product Management, explores where vendors are going with fiber, examines the challenges they face and discusses the implications.
