Cloud TV is transforming the way audiovisual content is distributed and the trend towards the ‘cloudification’ of content distribution is likely to accelerate in the future as content service providers look to simplify their workflow, cater to changing viewing habits and give themselves the flexibility to launch new services quickly.
Many organisations see huge benefits in migrating their content distribution infrastructure to the cloud, but there are also significant obstacles that stand in their way. Companies are also concerned about working out a viable roadmap to migrate their infrastructure to the cloud in a way that doesn’t threaten or disrupt their existing way of doing things.
DTVE recently surveyed senior industry figures from over 40 countries, including IPTV providers, cable and satellite pay TV operators, OTT service providers, broadcasters and other players in the value chain to share their views on how far they have progressed with cloud migration, what they expect to happen in the future, what the key applications are, and what they see as the main opportunities and challenges.
The resulting report, which is now available to download free of charge, provides a fascinating and useful insight into how key industry players view this transformative shift in the way video is delivered.
