Bitmovin presenta primera API integral de infraestructura de video para desarrolladores

Bitmovin, proveedor de tecnologías de infraestructura para transmisión de video en Internet, presentó hoy una nueva API de infraestructura de video que agrupa los servicios exitosos de codificación de videos y reproducción de videos de Bitmovin, con un producto de análisis del rendimiento de los videos e integración con diversos proveedores de redes de distribución de contenido y almacenamiento. El resultado es una API de infraestructura de video integral que simplifica enormemente el desarrollo y la distribución de video en la Web, en particular video en vivo, VOD, 360 y realidad virtual.

El término "infraestructura de video" se refiere a todos los componentes necesarios para transmitir videos adaptables en Internet. La cadena comienza con un archivo de video, que se codifica en un formato adaptable de transmisión (generalmente MPEG-DASH y/o HLS) y luego se transfiere a una forma determinada de almacenamiento web (AWS S3, FTP, Aspera, etc.). Desde ese punto, los archivos se transmite a través de una red de distribución de contenido, o CDN, en inglés (Akamai, Level3, CloudFront, etc.), que distribuye rápidamente el video a los usuarios, quienes lo pueden ver a través de un reproductor adaptable, por ejemplo, un reproductor de HTML5. La última pieza del rompecabezas es el sistema analítico, que rastrea el comportamiento del usuario. Además de esta infraestructura, subyace una capa de otras tecnologías necesarias. Eso puede abarcar la codificación (Gestión de los derechos digitales), la publicidad, la RV o los controles de video en 3060 grados, subtítulos y epígrafes y muchas posibilidades más.

El uso del video se popularizado tanto que la mayoría de las infraestructuras de video se construyen combinando sistemas de distintos proveedores. Esto alarga y encarece los ciclos de desarrollo, genera sistemas más complejos y difíciles de escalar y ofertas de video en Internet que no están a la altura de la calidad que ofrecen Netflix, YouTube o Twitch.

La nueva API de Bitmovin, que fue el resultado directo de los comentarios de los clientes, supera estos desafíos porque combina todos los componentes del flujo de trabajo de la codificación adaptable de los videos transmitidos y reproducidos en Internet (codificación, reproducción, análisis, almacenamiento y distribución de contenido) en una única interfaz de de gestión sin restringir a los usuarios en una solución estándar para todos. Los proveedores, distribuidores, integradores y desarrolladores pueden combinar cualquier parte de la nueva API de Bitmovin o utilizar la oferta completa de Bitmovin, con su infraestructura de video actual.

"Hemos escuchado a nuestros clientes y ya estamos listos para entregarles la primera infraestructura de video completa, que integra todos los aspectos del flujo de trabajo de transmisión adaptable en una única capa API, muy fácil de usar", señaló Stefan Lederer, gerente general de Bitmovin. "La API de Bitmovin es al video lo que Twilio es a la comunicación y Stripe a los pagos. Es una API simple que genera una experiencia de video similar a la de Netflix o Twitch en la Web. Estamos ansiosos por saber qué dicen los clientes cuando la prueben".

Los principales proveedores de video en Internet, entre ellos Ooyala, RTL y Technicolor ya usan esta API en sus entornos de producción.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions.
