Motorola expands on-demand server platform
Motorola has introduced the Motorola B-3 Video Server, designed to address small to midsized streaming sites.
The B-3 complements the Motorola B-1, the company’s most widely deployed solid-state on-demand server. When combined with the Motorola CPS1000 Content Propagation System, the platform addresses the increase in on-demand usage and content libraries while optimizing operator storage and streaming and network resources.
The B-3 Video Server leverages industry-standard hardware to create a high-performance, scalable, fault-tolerant server that supports video-on-demand, time-shifted TV, on-demand ad insertion, network DVR and other content distribution and clip management applications.
Available early in the second quarter, the B-3 efficiently scales from several hundred to more than 3000 streams and can be configured as a stand-alone server with integrated content library or as an edge server deployed alongside a B-1.
