Pay TV and video software developer Synamedia has signed an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) agreement with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) to use its HPE Proliant servers to power Synamedia solutions and advance its video network portfolio. This agreement will help its customers optimise capital expenditure (Capex) with faster deployment, increased productivity, simplified operations and enhanced end-to-end security.
“As the consumption of digital media content continues to expand, and becomes a lifeline to many consumers given the current ‘shelter at home’ environment, content providers need robust infrastructure to deliver continuous information and entertainment services to consumers,” said Phillip Cutrone, vice-president and general manager, Worldwide OEM at HPE.
As more broadcasters and content owners transition from hardware to software solutions, Synamedia’s video network portfolio features a software-defined video network that delivers one of the industry’s broadest solutions sets – centred on reliability, more uptime and increased density – to help operators fully virtualise their networks and move their workflows to full software running on any cloud.
Furthermore, its content delivery network (CDN) solution greatly optimises hardware provided by HPE to deliver the best combination of price and performance, with the ability to scale in minutes.
Cutrone added: “By combining HPE OEM ProLiant Gen 10 servers that extend industry-leading performance, security and versatility, with Synamedia’s software-defined video network solutions, TV and media network providers can quickly deploy reliable, scalable platforms with a focus on extending and delivering enhanced experiences to customers.”
