Thank you for joining Cisco at IBC 2012 and seeing how Cisco is freeing media from the traditional boundaries of time, place, and platform. With Cisco Videoscape, you can bring your content to viewers anytime, anywhere, over any screen, allowing you to deliver your content with uncompromising quality and full protection, while generating new revenue opportunities.
Intelligent Content Delivery
IBC marked the introduction of the Cisco Videoscape Distribution Suite (VDS). This open, intelligent content delivery network (CDN) platform offers personalized media delivery across multiple screens, protocols, applications, and networks. Unlike other solutions, Cisco VDS provides a holistic end-to-end CDN solution that bridges cloud and network functionality. It was built upon open standards and optimized for interoperability with both Cisco and third-party CDN components. Cisco VDS accelerates the introduction of services such as time-shift TV, cloud-based recording, over-the-top (OTT) content delivery, CDN wholesale, and CDN federations.
Set-Tops for Next-Gen Services
Cisco has also announced the Personal DVB Series (PDS) Set Tops, designed to work with Cisco Videoscape cloud and network elements to deliver a personalized TV experience. Cisco PDS Set Tops provide integrated support for time-shifted TV, social applications, web-based video content, integration with "companion" smartphones and tablets, and more. They support leading middleware and conditional access systems including Cisco PowerKEY and NDS VideoGuard, as well as cloud applications.
