Industry Leaders Deploy Edge Apps at Source on Videon’s Platform

Partners, including EZDRM,  join a growing ecosystem of edge apps that simplify extending, managing, augmenting, and connecting an unlimited amount of live video workflows.

Videon, a leader in edge computing for video, announces that technology providers across the industry, including Net Insight, EZDRM, Synamedia, Zixi, V-Nova, Red5 Pro, Techex, THEO Technologies, and Livepeer and others are deploying edge apps using LiveEdge® Compute to simplify on-premise-to-cloud workflows for media companies, cloud providers, and integrators. These apps take full advantage of Videon’s built-in ultra-low latency video processing to deliver better video workflow monitoring and management, improved picture quality with reduced bandwidth, content encryption, instant channel switching, and more.

videon-edge-apps-marketVideon puts edge computing power at the point where video is created, enabling a huge array of video processing tasks to be completed before content goes into the cloud. Edge computing for live video powers more automated, intelligent, flexible, and controlled workflows. Users can add multiple camera angles and remote feeds to handle secondary and tertiary content that compliments the primary broadcast feed, creating more profound engagement with viewers. By giving companies the ability to easily manage, augment, and extend live video workflows, new business models can be created and applied rapidly.

Each edge application supports one of four core tenets of Videon's edge computing platform:

Extend: enables unique workflows by moving traditional cloud functions to video origin
Manage: allows control and automation of devices and fleets through the cloud
Augment: creates intelligent video by adding critical metadata
Connect: enhances connection quality and reliability

"The days of highly complex and inflexible live streaming workflows are coming to an end. Our video edge computing platform and growing ecosystem of market-first edge apps enable a whole new live video infrastructure that every market segment can use to create positive business outcomes," said Tricia Iboshi, CEO at Videon. "It results in never-before-seen operationalized growth of live video."

Video developers are rapidly building impactful market-first edge apps using LiveEdge® Compute, Videon’s developer toolkit. LiveEdge® Compute is Docker-based, making it easy to quickly deploy apps that bring the power and flexibility of the cloud to the live video origin.
