Move to Personalized Video Delivery
Consumers want to watch videos they choose, when they want to, and on the device they want. Cisco personalized video services include video on demand (VoD) but also extend to:

  • Time-shifting
  • Network personal video recorders
  • Advanced advertising

And as high-definition content becomes available, it finds its way to the on-demand system, including regular movies and catch-up or replay TV.

Deliver Any Content to Any Screen
Central to personalized and VoD services are Cisco Content Delivery Systems, which are designed for today's services and to facilitate offering any stream to any screen.

Deploy a Medianet for Next-Generation Service
The Cisco system delivers VoD and personalized video over a flexible and scalable medianet. This medianet is a media-aware IP Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) that delivers all types of media with a single end-to-end architecture. With specialized layers for applications, media delivery and control, and network transport, a medianet helps you:

  • Reduce operating expenses
  • Deliver an array of interactive experiences

Gain an advantage with Cisco cable VoD services. We have extensive VoD launch experience and an integrated hardware and software platform for on-demand services. This combination delivers rapid time to market and high reliability to launch or expand this powerful cable video service.
