This live webcast covered exactly what the cloud means for TV and how service providers can ease their way into the cloud or take virtualization to its full practical limits, looking at the benefits and the challenges in both cases. It will consider the processes that can be virtualized, like the UI, storage, video processing and analytics, and the impact for services like multiscreen and companions. The one hour discussion outlined how you can migrate to partial or more advanced virtualization while maintaining existing operations and investments, with reference to real world examples. The webcast will of course address the macro drivers for using more cloud including the impact on CapEx, OpEx and service provider agility.
Our distinguished panel, moderated by John Moulding, Editor of Videonet, includes:
- Dr. Randolph Nikutta, Leader Interactive High End Media, Innovation Development, Deutsche Telekom AG
