We’re just back from Las Vegas, and once again the NAB 2019 show proved to be a great opportunity to engage with a large number of communications service providers (CSPs) and broadcasting companies on topics and solutions that are key to success in the industry and to showcase digital video solutions (DVS) from HPE.
Perhaps expecting to see the latest HPE hardware products and technologies, many of the visitors to the HPE booth were surprised and impressed by the breadth of media and entertainment solutions being showcased instead. In contrast to many exhibitors who were only showing slideware or recordings, HPE created a real experience and provided the following high quality solution demos - which were called “hidden gems” by one visitor:
HPE virtual Headend Manager (vHM) E2E IPTV/OTT orchestration with Service Director - 1 click deployment for OTT and IPTV
HPE Media Workflow Master (MWM) now in the cloud, enabling for cloud media services
Audience News Gathering Involve influencers in your show and get the best audience engagement
HPE Interactive TV (iTV) Engagement, advertisement, e-commerce: a new TV experience
Our strategy and portfolio received a lot of attention from customers and partners showing how we are aligned with the industry’s hottest topics: cloud and analytics, respectively, driving workflow modernization and IT-fication including audience and fan engagement with better interactivity and profiling. This enables HPE to underpin our claim to have a strong play in being able to provide the right technology for new video consumption models.
Thanks again for spending your valuable time with the HPE DVS team at the show. Don’t let what happened in Vegas stay there. Get in touch with Paolo Ceccherini, email@example.com, to keep the conversation going!
