Executive Summary

TV viewers have come to expect a web-like experience for TV programs - they want to watch their favourite programs on their own schedule. To meet this shift in customer expectations, Cable MSO and Telecommunications operators are rolling out Time-Shifted TV services for their subscribers using powerful video-on-demand platforms such as Espial MediaBase. Time-Shifted TV is an especially demanding application as it requires high-performance servers with powerful processors, disk drives, and network cards to support real-time video capture and streaming. Intel partnered with Espial to evaluate the throughput improvement possible with Intel Xeon processor 5500 series-based platforms coupled with Intel Solid-State Drives (SSDs) for both standard and high-definition video streaming.
