Independent video software provider Synamedia has signed an OEM agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to use HPE ProLiant servers to power its solutions and further advance its video network portfolio. This agreement will help customers optimise capital expenditure (CAPEX) with faster deployment, increased productivity, simplified operations and enhanced end-to-end security.
Synamedia’s video network portfolio features a software-defined video network that delivers solutions sets that promise to help operators fully virtualise their networks and move their workflows to full software running on any cloud.
The video network, in combination with its automation tools, aims to help customers scale up and down in public, private or hybrid cloud environments cost-effectively and efficiently, and launch 24/7 and/or pop-up channels on the infrastructure available.
Its virtualised Digital Content Manager (DCM) offers video services for broadcasters, including live transcoding to multiple bit rates and formats, scalable video functions, video quality and an intuitive user interface. Additionally, its content delivery network (CDN) solution looks to optimise hardware provided by HPE.
Commenting on the agreement, Julien Signes, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Video Network, Synamedia, said: “We are dedicated to partnering with companies that share our commitment to transforming the way the world is entertained and informed. This is why we’re thrilled to work with HPE, who has just been recognised by Gartner for its commitment to evolving the IT infrastructure. Our portfolio and expertise offer the full package to help customers achieve this transformation, and working with a proven partner like HPE will help them get there quickly and securely.”
Phillip Cutrone, Vice President and General Manager, Worldwide OEM at HPE, remarked: “By combining HPE OEM ProLiant Gen 10 servers that extend industry-leading performance, security and versatility, with Synamedia’s software-defined video network solutions, TV and media network providers can quickly deploy reliable, scalable platforms with a focus on extending and delivering enhanced experiences to customers.”
