Leverage Cloud Video Playout to Lower Costs

Sales Query Form

Optimize Cloud Video Playout by Balancing
CapEx and OpEx with Hybrid Solutions

While moving playout to the cloud can lower your CapEx, it can also introduce OpEx cost uncertainty due to the unpredictability of variable pricing models, new platform training requirements, additional systems management complexity, and more. Leverage cloud playout technologies more cost-effectively by utilizing a hybrid approach that takes advantage of the best of both worlds — on-prem and cloud — all managed under a single, intuitive UI.

  • Manage Cloud Solutions
    Easily manage a mix of on-prem and cloud technologies, ensuring seamless synchronization between them
  • Spend OpEx vs CapEx
    Balance CapEx for on-prem infrastructure with OpEx for cloud technologies to lower overall costs
