Panopto and Ramp have formed a strategic partnership aimed at providing businesses and universities with new ways to optimize the streaming of video to large, geographically-distributed audiences.
Panopto helps businesses and universities create searchable video libraries of their institutional knowledge, and Ramp is a provider of video delivery solutions.
The companies plan to certify the interoperability of Panopto’s video platform with Ramp’s enterprise content delivery network, AltitudeCDN, and will engage in joint marketing and selling efforts.
With dmand for live and on-demand video surging among businesses and universities as a means of online communication and learning, the companies say, it has become critical for video streams to start quickly and remain stable, while minimizing costs and the use of network bandwidth.
To meet these growing demands, Panopto and Ramp are working together to certify interoperability between Panopto’s video content management system (VCMS) and Ramp’s ECDN solutions, AltitudeCDN Multicast+ and OmniCache. The integrated solution is software-based, minimizing deployment time and costs, and is compatible with Panopto’s cloud-hosted and on-premises video platform offerings.
According to the vendors, for organizations implementing a staged rollout of unicast-based WAN optimization, Panopto’s integration with AltitudeCDN OmniCache reduces WAN traffic generated by frequently-viewed, on-demand videos and large live events. For customers who have invested in multicast network architecture, the combination of Panopto and AltitudeCDN Multicast+ helps reduce network bandwidth consumption while using industry standard video codecs (H.264), protocols (HLS), and HTML5-based players.
