At NAB 2018, Cisco has introduced new solutions and programmes to the Cisco Media Blueprint, a set of IP-based infrastructure and software solutions that securely accelerate the production, playout and distribution of immersive experiences.

The Cisco Media Blueprint’s expanded capabilities include multi-cloud orchestration, application management and collaboration solutions, in addition to enhancements across core IP networking, data centre, security and distribution.

The company is also introducing programmes to help channel partners deliver joint Cisco and partner solutions to the market, with an open/standards-based approach and best-in-class offers. These include cloud-based media storage solutions with partners Cloudian, Scality and Swiftstack, to enable more active data storage, management and access across multiple clouds.

In addition, Cisco is launching IP broadcast training for customers and partners to help close the IP skills shortage in the broadcast industry and accelerate adoption of cloud technology.

Meanwhile, the Cisco CloudCenter has launched for managing multi-cloud workflows to simplify the support of hybrid IT strategies across data centre, private and public clouds by automating deployment, migration and management of media-specific workflows. It has also introduced AppDynamics for application performance management; a multi-layered security architecture for media, to secure premium content, infrastructure and business across media production, IT and multi-cloud environments.

And finally, the company has enhanced its IP-based primary distribution with the D9800 multi-input/output platform to migrate from satellite to terrestrial primary distribution, virtual DCM smart rate control for consistent adaptive bitrate (ABR) video quality with bandwidth- and cost-optimisation, and glass-to-glass low-latency ABR distribution.
