6 Reasons to Upgrade Your Legacy Multimedia System

1.Technology Changes

Technology from the early 2000’s is obsolete today. Since the early 00’s cell phones and tablets have become a preferred method of communication and a great way to view video on the go. Some video systems have not been updated to support the influx of smartphones and tablets.

2. No Exotic Network Dependencies

The DEVOS system is easily connected to the company network. Accessing DEVOS can be via the private network or Via the public internet. There is no need to switch what network you’re using to access the DEVOS server.

3. Easily transfer your content.

Discover Video makes it easy to transfer your existing media content over to your new DEVOS server. The DEVOS system also allows for VEMEO and YouTube Videos to be added to the network without the advertisements, this is great for when these video servers are blacklisted from you server, but you still need to access the video content.

4.Your Existing Maintenance costs may be more than a new system

Your Existing Maintenance fees may be more than the costs of a new DEVOS system. Why continue to pay to maintain something outdated. Upgrade to DEVOS for a fraction of the cost.

5.Use your existing system as credit towards a new system

Your existing system isn’t garbage. Discover Video will take your legacy technology off your hands and give you credit and discounts towards your new DEVOS System.

It Ain’t Streaming

It’s a distinction without a difference.

Streaming is technically the delivery of content that is delivered using the same rate that was used to create it.  For example, create a video file encoded at 2 Mbps and a true streaming server opens it, discovers it is 2 Mbps, and carefully meters it out to viewers at 2 Mbps.

In the days of low speed dial-up networking, being efficient as possible really mattered.  Delivering data via progressive download meant that viewers would receive parts of the video that they don’t even watch. So true streaming was important.  When browsers learned how to make byte-range requests (HTML 1.1), and with HTML5 and native support for video in browsers, and with true broadband available even on cell phones, things changed and true classic streaming was not longer necessary for video on demand.

YouTube, for example, never did streaming.  They provide a progressive download of the video file or what we used to call “pseudo streaming”.  Do you care?  Did it hold them back?  Of course not.  Like I said, it is a distinction without a difference.

But it is of course true streaming is necessary for the delivery of live video. For live video, it’s still pretty much all HTML5 / HLS / DASH which operates very differently from playing a Video on demand file..  More on that in another article.

Discover Video provides all types of delivery means to get your live and on-demand content to viewers.  True streaming, HLS/DASH, Progressive, multicast/unicast, all part of a comprehensive formula for success.
