Imagine Communications Corp. Key Developments

Imagine Communications Introduces End-To-End Cloud Platform for Video Distribution and Monetization

Imagine Communications introduced CloudXtream, a comprehensive cloud video platform for multiscreen video distribution and monetization. CloudXtream is the industry's first cloud-enabled platform designed to meet the growing and complex array of video distribution requirements, including live video, video on demand (VOD), cloud DVR (cDVR), dynamic ad insertion (DAI), packaging, encoding, transcoding, storage management and cloud orchestration. The initial components of the modular CloudXtream platform include CloudXtream cDVR and CloudXtream Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI). Video consumption is rapidly shifting from a lean-back, linear approach to a mix of linear and lean-forward, self-selected, VOD viewing, with no effective means of integrating the two – until now. Imagine Communications’ CloudXtream cDVR is the first end-to-end solution from a single technology supplier, accelerating the evolution to the lean-forward, multiscreen world of any content, any time, on any device. CloudXtream cDVR provides consumers lean-forward flexibility, with cloud-based content readily accessible from any location and on any device. The wide variety of options like rewinding, restarting and replaying scenes, allows consumers to easily time-shift and consume their self-selected content at their convenience. For broadcasters, CloudXtream cDVR enables the creation of incremental paid service offerings to their subscription-based OTT businesses, as well as enabling user-centric personalization and management of content. Subscribers can be offered new, revenue-generating services such as increased storage and enhanced time-shift options, an unlimited look-back window, start-pause-stop of both linear and VOD content, and concurrent recording of simultaneous programs. CloudXtream cDVR offers Pay-TV providers benefits such as reducing or eliminating costly truck rolls associated with home-based DVR/set-top boxes. CloudXtream also gives Pay-TV providers the ability to deliver robust content within or outside of their traditional footprints. Fresh and relevant advertising can be provided to viewers, enhancing the value of ads and helping maximize the monetization of content. For mobile operators and the emerging group of over-the-top video distributors (OVDs), CloudXtream offers the industry’s first fully integrated platform for cloud video to support cDVR, as well as linear and VOD content. This will greatly accelerate time to market for these providers, allowing them to move quickly from concept to launch by providing the end-to-end platform to ingest, manage, package and distribute content.

Imagine Communications Introduces Platinum VX Small to Midsize Digital Video Router

Imagine Communications introduced the Platinum VX digital video router at CABSAT 2015. Supporting matrix sizes up to 288x288, the Platinum VX small to midsized routers represents the innovation in density, reliability and fully redundant HD/SDI routing up to 3 Gb/s. The newly designed Platinum VX replaces the compact Panacea line, offering twice the density at half the list price per port while benefiting from enhanced capabilities of the company’s Platinum platform. The digital video router incorporates the latest equalization and reclocker technologies to deliver unparalleled signal quality and reliability across all signal formats. With four frame sizes that range from 16x16 to 288x288, the Platinum VX is a simple, cost-effective solution that supports utility routing requirements of any size. The Platinum VX includes a standalone version of the Magellan control system and fully supports all of the Magellan remote control panels. Platinum VX can also be part of a larger routing system using a dedicated Magellan SDN Orchestrator control system for managing hybrid baseband and IP networks. Supporting 24/7 video operations and manufactured with mechanical design, straightforward architecture and a small footprint, Platinum VX routers are well-suited to network, local broadcaster, mobile production, cable, telco, military, government and corporate applications environments that require routing of a large number of signals. The Platinum VX, Platinum IP3 and other innovative technologies from Imagine Communications will be on display in Hall 3, Stand C3-10 at CABSAT 2015.
