Video Solutions

Consumers are demanding more personalized video services that let them watch what they want, when they want, on the screen they want. Personalized video services include video on demand (VoD) but also extend to:

Introduce High Definition into On-Demand
The next step in on-demand TV is high definition. As high-definition content becomes available, it finds its way to the on-demand system. This is valid not only for regular movies, but also for catch-up TV or replay TV.

Any Content to Any Screen
Central to personalised and VoD services is the Cisco Content Delivery System (CDS). Cisco CDS transcends traditional VoD systems and uses a highly scalable and efficient distributed architecture. Cisco CDS is designed for today's services and to facilitate moving to ?any stream to any screen.?

VoD and personalized video are delivered over flexible and scalable Cisco IP Next-Generation Networks (NGNs), typically through edge quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) products such as the Cisco RF Gateway Series and then through a hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) access network.
