Innovative communications providers like TELUS and Vodafone are embracing open audio-video (A-V) pipeline solutions.

See how these new multi-tenant IP video technologies form the foundation of a more flexible video network, helping to reduce time-to-market for new applications, streamlining workflows, and driving down operators’ total cost of ownership.

Join a panel discussion on the goals, benefits, and challenges of opening the A-V pipeline, along with a review of the latest technologies, featuring speakers from TELUS, Vodafone, and Velocix.

Topics will include:

  • How to create an open, multi-tenant launchpad for new video services
  • Why an open architecture enables operators to be more agile and responsive to emerging market opportunities
  • How open architectures save cost and foster healthy supplier relationships
