VOD Servers – Equations And Solutions (2005)

By Glen Hardin, W. Paul Sherer

Video-On-Demand (VOD) is now a widely deployed product with a ready audience. No longer a “trial” product, it is a cornerstone offering for the cable industry - generating revenues, reducing churn and setting MSOs solution apart from satellite.

Yet the technology underpinning VOD services is still in its infancy, and, as new VOD services are developed, the VOD infrastructure must continue to evolve if the potential of these new services is to be realized to its fullest.

This paper seeks to provide context for VOD server technology - where it has been, where it is and where it might be going. This discussion is presented in context of the changing VOD server equation. Understanding this equation is paramount to understanding the solution going forward.
