Cisco Virtualized Video Processing Controller (V2PC) System Release 3.2.3 is a maintenance release to address issues noted in Known Defects. It contains no new features or limitations relative to V2PC Release 3.2.2.
V2PC is an open and extensible platform for orchestrating, managing, and operating media functions. V2PC facilitates the deployment and management of Cisco and third-party video data plane applications such as encoders, packagers, and recorders in the data center cloud environment. Through V2PC, these applications are abstracted from the underlying infrastructure, such as VMWare, Bare Metal, or Docker.
V2PC provides the following SDKs in support of extensibility:
AppController SDK – for integrating and on-boarding third-party applications
Media Workflow SDK – for chaining virtual video functions together to form rich workflows such as Linear, VOD, cDVR, and TSTV
GUI SDK – for adding new custom GUI pages
Through these SDKs, V2PC enables customers and ecosystem partners to integrate Cisco and third-party video applications on the V2PC platform to rapidly deploy new services such as Linear, VOD, and cDVR to OTT consumers, while maintaining multi-vendor flexibility and providing a common infrastructure that enables efficiency while reducing costs.
V2PC also supports multi-OS enablement (including CentOS and CoreOS) and VM orchestration over mixed infrastructure (including VMWare, Kubernetes, and Bare Metal).
