Preparing for the New Wave of On-Demand TV Services
Energy-efficient Intel® processors and solid-state drives deliver innovative VoD services while reducing power usage, space requirements, and costs
The TV on-demand generation expects access to TV programs at their convenience. Cable and telco companies are responding to consumer preferences with video-on-demand (VoD), remote-storage digital video recorder (RS-DVR), and time-shifted television (TSTV) services so that viewers can record and replay programs on their own schedules. These services are particularly compute- and I/O-intensive, requiring vast investments in storage, processing, and networking equipment. The challenge for cable and telco operators is to deliver these services using less power and less equipment space, while controlling capital and operational expenditures (CapEx and OpEx).
