Poland’s nc+ partners with Cisco on multiscreen video

Polish operator nc+ has partnered with Cisco, with the latter delivering multiscreen video services from a converged virtualised video processing platform.

nc+ is using Cisco’s Virtualised Video Processing (V2P) to unify its video processing infrastructure and deliver new multiscreen video services in a quicker and more cost-effective way.

By virtualising and orchestrating live, VoD and time shift TV workflows, nc+ can dramatically simplify its video service operations from live encoding to multiscreen playout, according to the companies.

“In this highly competitive marketplace, the key to staying ahead lies in achieving balance between addressing current customer demands and making insight-led investments in future trends. nc+ recognizes the role of innovation in building a sustainable growth strategy, and our collaboration with Cisco is testament to that commitment,” said Jaroslaw Kordalewski, executive vice president for IT and technology at nc+.

Cisco’s vice-president, cable media and video, Yves Padrines, said: “nc+ shares our vision for the future of television, and recognizes the need to unify their network architecture, combining physical and virtual resources to provide the cost savings and agility they need to deliver the best TV experiences available to consumers in a variety of ways, on a variety of devices.”
