The role of cloud-based video service assurance platforms to monitor end-to-end streaming quality

I've been researching content deliver networks (CDNs) lately, including Ericsson UDN, AWS, Limelight Networks, and Akamai Technologies, trying to better understand the value-chain, costs, and ROI for video content delivery. But I keep coming back to quality assurance. For sure content is still king, but good content doesn't matter without good quality streaming. The questions is: how do you monitor and measure video…

How to handle the next wave of OTT- everything online.

What happens when all video entertainment moves online? Can the Internet handle it? Will consumers tolerate it?

It seems every week there is a new report about the rapid rise of OTT. Cord-cutting is accelerating. Pay TV subs are declining. More video is consumed online now than through traditional methods. Most homes have 2 or 3 OTT apps/devices. Through it all, OTT seems to have withstood every major test with (relatively) flying colors: the Olympics, the World Cup, the…

A Practical Guide to AWS Media Services

The last white paper I reviewed from Amazon Web Services-Elemental was among the best ever received. It generated 3-plus million potential impressions, thousands of views, hundreds of downloads, and very healthy social media engagement. So I didn’t hesitate to review the follow up paper— “A Practical Guide to AWS Media Services: Deploying cloud-based processing and delivery services for broadcast and Internet-delivered video"…

If OTT content is King, how do you protect your throne?

I've been doing some research lately on the role of content in the fast-evolving over-the-top video (OTT) world, and enjoyed a sponsored white paper that came across my desk: Neustar's "Managing OTT Content Distribution in the Connected World."

The Vast TV Watching Opportunities

Growing up in the 90s, if i wanted to watch cable tv I was limited to x amount of channels. I truly had to make do with what I had. But now the possibilities are endless.

Amazon video, Netflix, Hulu just to name a few. Our tv possibilities are simply endless at this point. We can instantly watch shows we've missed…

My Escape

I work 6-7 days a week running a funeral home. The nature of the business paired with it being your own small business can be highly stressful.

True V.R.

My favorite subjects back in school were Literature/History and Technology.  Both these subjects really allow one to express in written form ideas that can turn something considered rather small into something big.  Technology on the other hand, takes these ideas and helps shape it in the physical, material world.  After all, technology (even in its rudimentary form) was, and still is, a way and means that gave shape and form to abundance and prosperity (in the right hands of…

Swimming UpStream

Problems.  They seem to be everywhere.  From personal to business it permeates all our lives.  The Buddha posited, that "all human activity eventually ends in suffering."  All the great self-authors of our day would tell you that problems can't all be eliminated, but they can certainly be managed.  In a sea of activity from work, appointments, to the daily stresses of our lives, one thing is most absolutely certain, we as humans love to be entertained. 

For me, this runs the gamut…
