LAS VEGAS — This time last year, Cisco unveiled Videoscape Virtualized Video Processing (V2P), a set of technologies allowing video workers to process their material using virtual, or cloud, services.

Now it says it has improved the offering, after feedback received from customers. Cisco service provider video marketing director David Yates says improvements are threefold – “multi-vendor” integration, more virtualized function and better security.

“We’ve seen IP taking over all aspects of video processing expect for the production data centre,” he tells Beet.TV in this video interview. “Still older technologies are being used.

“Operators are finding it harder to use the old, hardware-specific ways of video processing. Now they can move all of their infrastructure to IP.”

We interviewed Yates at the NAB Show. Beet.TV’s coverage of the show was sponsored by Akamai.  Please find more coverage from Las Vegas here.
