— Time Warner Cable Business Class cut the ribbon on its new data center in New York City that provides businesses with a secure facility for their IT assets. The 17,000-sq.-ft. space at 395 Hudson Street in Lower Manhattan offers flexible space options for businesses of all sizes. The carrier-neutral data center sells dedicated Internet access and Ethernet services from TWC Business Class, and it’s powered by diverse routes and parallel UPS that feed from two Con Edison substations on different grids. The center also comes equipped with dual generators for redundant back-up power with hot-refuel capabilities.
– Swift QC, a software tool designed to reduce the time it takes to repurpose video content (including delivery to such IP-connected devices as smartphones, tablets and PCs), now is available from U.K.-based Softel. The tool can check that caption and video files align correctly as part of an automated workflow, thus saving a manual-caption, quality-control process for each video clip. The system also looks for profanities within captions, flagging any potential issues. Operators can deploy Swift QC either within their own facilities or as a cloud service.
