RGB CloudXtream provides the ability to integrate and deploy turnkey video applications out-of-the-box, on to bare metal servers, a private cloud, or public cloud. It integrates with other cloud-based applications to provide a new dimension in the deployment for video services, all over IP, geo-redundant, highly scalable and able to respond to elastic demand for transcoding, Just-in-Time Packaging (JITP), IP streaming, nDVR storage, and Ad Insertion. It can co-exist in hybrid environments and its OpenStack framework enables deployment of up to hundreds of application instances in a matter of minutes. Focused on economies of scale, CloudXtream ultimately accelerates the deployment of new, revenue generating services and helps any operator looking to move towards an all IP infrastructure. Capable of supporting the delivery of content to a multitude of device types regardless of protocol in use, CloudXtream ensures video service providers (VSPs) do so in a cost-effective and sustainable way.
