Video audiences expect broadcast quality on any device, anywhere they are viewing. But delivering live and on-demand video to the diversity of devices used, and supporting all required formats is complex. What’s more, managing a growing library of large VOD files is expensive and takes planning.

Addressing all these issues, while delivering the user experience demanded by your audience, is a serious challenge.
