Avid: A Riverbed Technology and Qumu Solution Case Study
Avid is one of the best known names in the fields of digital audio and video technology. Avid was not always able to communicate with all employees worldwide through video, or to do so in a timely way and other important issues. The company was already using Riverbed Steelhead appliances to optimize WAN traffic on its private network. Now upgrading its existing Steelhead appliances with an RSP license, distributes Flash and Windows Media formats, and reduces the impact of video bandwidth consumption over the WAN. The Qumu and Riverbed solution delivers high-performance streaming media and provides a simple way for Avid to create live video, record it, and automatically archive video broadcasts for later viewing on desktops throughout the enterprise.
