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.

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
