SeaChange Exhibits its
PanoramiC Platform

TM

Ed Terino, CEO, SeaChange International, discusses the PanoramiC platform,
and how the company is continuing to meet the needs of video providers...
BroadcastAsia: Is there a
particular development that
you either see, or see a need
for, in the video provider market
today?
Ed Terino: The meaning of
"video provider" has changed a
lot over SeaChange's 25 years.
Since its inception, SeaChange
has been focused on providers
of premium video. But when
we began, premium video was
offered primarily by cable operators using
HFC/QAM. As Telcos began deploying
video solutions, and IPTV deployments
started, we broadened our focus to address
them. And we have broadened once again
to address the needs of providers using
adaptive streaming technology for OTT
and mobile delivery. So, there are many

In addition, we see a need
for a new generation of "video
platform provider" offering
a
Platform-as-a-Service
(PaaS) subscription business
model that includes, not only
the management elements
that are our focus, but also
content licensing and the
delivery/data plane elements,
like storage, transcoding,
DRM ad insertion, and CDN.
PanoramiC addresses the needs of today's video providersThis platform must be cloudtypes of video providers, but we believe

are there. But unlike the first-generation
multi-tenant online video platforms, this new
platform provider must offer the ability to
rapidly add new capabilities which leverage
advances in video processing, delivery, and
AI/machine learning - and this demands a
more open platform architecture. With this
approach, this evolving platform provider
can maintain a "best-in-breed" combination
of platform elements and managed-services
that enable their customers to compete with
dedicated, closed systems being used by
industry behemoths.
We have acted on this belief by forming
technology alliances - with ATES Networks,
Ateme, Broadpeak, and castLabs - to create
a pre-integrated, open, cloud-based PaaS
offering, the PanoramiCâ„¢ Platform. We
believe that PanoramiC addresses the "big
picture" needs of today's video providers, and
its open, third-party alliance concept ensures
that its customers can offer innovative
"indivisualâ„¢ experiences", while maintaining
a low cost of ownership.
BCA: Thanks for your time, Mr Terino. Any
final words?
ET: We are here at BroadcastAsia, stand
4A1-01 in the TV Everywhere Zone. I'd like to
invite your readers to come by and exchange
their thoughts on where the video market is,
where it is going, and how we can help them
meet their challenges. www.schange.com
