Cisco also has a fresh set of new
Cloud-based
infrastructure
and
software applications designed to
improve how OTT content is delivered.
Marketed under the banner of Media
Blueprint, the package includes an IP
networking application based on Cisco
Nexus switches and SDN Controllers
that enables the migration from SDI
to IP and Infinite Video, a Cloud-based
OTT system that supports delivery
of TV experiences to a wide range of
devices.
The combination of products will
allow for video deployments across
hybrid Cloud environments, combining
private Cloud, managed services, and
Cisco Cloud SaaS delivery.
"By combining new and existing IP
video and Cloud solutions, we can
offer seamless orchestration of video
workflows from an open platform,
supporting Cisco and third party
functionality," said Dave Ward, CTO of
Cisco's Service Provider division.
Emotion Detection
As companies grow their video
content library, they must have an
equally effective means for extracting
new insights in order to create more
meaningful, personalised interactions
with their audiences.
To address this Microsoft is
launching an analytics service for its
Azure Media Cloud.
"With Azure Media Analytics, we aim
to improve productivity by cutting
down the manual effort required to
manage, process and review high
volumes of video," explains Principal
Program Manager, Milan Gada.
The components, currently in
preview, includes Face Detection that
not only detects faces, but also detects
their emotions; Motion Detection
that's able to filter out false positives
such as shadows on a wall; and 'Video
Summarisation' that consolidates long
videos so they can be reviewed quickly.
For the latter feature, users can select
the length they want for the final
video.
Another function, Hyperlapse, is
similar to the summarising tool,
but is intended for action cam
and cell phone footage. Use of it
can reduce a video's length and
smooth jerky footage.
MAM Moves To Cloud
Asset management systems
developers are taking their
platforms to the Cloud. Among
them, Square Box, makers of

the CatDV MAM has teamed its new
CatDV Archive to the Amazon S3
Cloud. This provides a direct link to S3
from CatDV's web and desktop user
interfaces for users to copy content
to S3 object storage or archive files
to clear space on their local storage
drives.
Clippn, which distributes through
multiple stock footage sites, has also
gone with Amazon but via a Dalet
integration.
"We were seeing demand for content
rising 30 percent year on year,"
explains Mick Reed, CEO, Clippn. "We
had to streamline the complexity
of the product chain. We knew we
couldn't achieve that with our current
on-premise infrastructure, which is
why we started looking at building a
Cloud-based one."
Dalet solved the problem by tying
its Galaxy MAM and AmberFin media
processor tool to the AWS Cloud using
a business solution it terms Dalet xN.
The resulting Cloud-based workflows
for Clippn start with content gathering
from multiple contributors, followed
by ingest, editing, colour correction,
verification and QC, and finally,
distribution to stock footage sites.
Feature film makers discussed
the challenges of producing vfx in
the Cloud at a NAB panel. Latency
was a clear barrier, but this can be
surmounted. Rodeo FX CTO Jordan
Soles said, "If you have a robust asset
management system like Shotgun,
you can use it to prime the Cloud
with assets that a render or updated
textures might need. We found it
definitely reduces the amount of time
for a given render to begin."
The scope of the issue was made
clear by the fact that Pixar's The Good
Dinosaur required 110 million compute
hours and 300TB of active data space.
"From my experience, it's important
to inflict a bit of pain on the production
and the artist," added Soles. "The
cloud is amazing and you can run as
many metrics as you want, but there's
nothing quite like an angry producer
in your office saying they need to get
something done tomorrow."
