AEG Digital Media, a provider of webcast management and digital media services for live video-streaming events, has expanded its existing deployment of Cisco technology to enable the delivery of live streaming video to any device over any Internet Protocol (IP) network. AEG will use Cisco’s digital media processing technology, a foundational part of the Cisco Videoscape portfolio.
AEG Digital Media has standardized on Cisco’s Spinnaker live streaming appliance, which enables the real-time delivery to PCs, Macs and mobile devices of such live content as the annual Grammy Awards, FarmAid’s 25th Anniversary Benefit Concert and the FIFA World Cup Kickoff Concert.
The Spinnaker solution, based on Cisco’s recent acquisition of Inlet Technologies, is used in streaming multimedia over managed and unmanaged networks, and adapts the quality of the video stream based on real-time network conditions. AEG Digital Media’s use of Cisco core networking infrastructure, powered by Cisco routers and switches, supports the video-streaming technology to deliver reliable and quality live video services.
