RGB Networks Advances Cloud-Based Ad Insertion and nDVR Solutions at NAB 2014

Demonstrations of CloudXtream and Turnkey Openstack Private Cloud Deployment Framework Show Operators How to Take Advantage of the Cloud

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 04/07/14 -- Here at NAB 2014 in booth SU5324, RGB Networks, the leading provider of the industry's most scalable, unified solutions for multiscreen video delivery, is launching its CloudXtream Ad Insertion for Multiscreen (AIM) and nDVR solutions to help operators take advantage of the Cloud to maximize the revenue generating potential of their TV Everywhere services.

CloudXtream is the only turnkey approach that enables the deployment of an end-to-end AIM or nDVR solution in an operator's own data center or hosted private cloud. To speed deployments, RGB has developed an Openstack framework deployment model that enables deployment of up to hundreds of application instances in a matter of minutes. The result is that RGB can now offer operators a native Openstack deployment platform that quickly deploys all AIM and nDVR software components as simply as a 'Video Cloud on a USB stick.'

"We first unveiled our CloudXtream initiative in October 2013, and since that time the reception from our customers has been overwhelmingly positive," said Simone Sassoli, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at RGB Networks. "Our customers tell us that CloudXtream will facilitate and accelerate the deployment of new revenue-generating services such as multiscreen ad insertion and network DVR so they can maximize the opportunities for monetizing their TV Everywhere deployments."

RGB has developed an entirely different method to deploying video services in a data center such as a cable headend. Rather than deploying dozens of individual devices -- both chassis and 'pizza boxes' -- now operators can take advantage of a true Software Defined Networking (SDN) approach to deploying services. RGB has developed both Openstack environment creation tools as well as Orchestration business and application logic. Using RGB's CloudXtream set of tools operators can deploy services in minutes, rather than weeks.

RGB's CloudXtream framework also easily enables the integration and deployment of other third-party applications directly into the Openstack cloud environment -- DRM, subscriber management, ad servers and other third-party products.

"We are excited to work with other vendors as we build out the ecosystem for CloudXtream," said Andy Salo, Vice President of Product Management at RGB. "We have fully embraced an open source model for deploying cloud-based applications so that customers don't feel locked in to proprietary solutions. By working with other vendors, we can offer customers the best choice for their own needs."

RGB is already in discussions with several large cable operators and expects to shortly begin customer trials of CloudXtream. The company further anticipates that production deployments of CloudXtream could start as soon as the end of this year.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
