Last year was an exciting one for the Anvato team. We joined Google Cloud in July and we also rolled out support for 360º video. We’re kicking off this year strong with the recent migration of Anvato’s services onto Google Cloud Platform (GCP) infrastructure.
Now GCP offers a fully managed, end-to-end video processing and management platform for signal acquisition, live and video-on-demand editing, hybrid encoding, social and premium syndication, dynamic ad insertion, authenticated playback, video analytics and player SDKs across all connected devices. The products cover a broad range of cutting-edge video processing solutions for pay TV operators, programmers, broadcasters and live event producers, and GCP is now the preferred option for Anvato customers of the likes of NBCUniversal, Univision, Scripps Networks Interactive, Media General and others – for OTT and cloud-based video processing and delivery.
The launch on GCP provides Anvato customers with new storage and delivery options, access to GCP’s global network of data centers, as well as access to innovation at all levels — hardware, software and operations. Machine learning, automation and additional scale are some of the areas we’re focusing on.
The Anvato team has always believed in thinking big and leading the media industry with innovative technologies. As part of GCP, we’re thinking bigger than ever, and 2017 will no doubt be another big year.
