The integrated solution is an open cloud-based SaaS platform that fully leverages the power of elastic compute and enables:
- New opportunities across existing customers, new target segments such as enterprise, tier 2-3 live sports and music events.
- A virtualized, seamless remote production workflow, addressing the challenges of latency, secure and reliable transport of multi camera feeds and synchronized audio.
- The power of the cloud and will make it easier, faster and reliable for rights holders and broadcasters to bring live content from the field, remote sites and to distribute it quickly to their audiences.
