Cisco Systems has announced the Cisco Digital Media System, a new emerging technology that will enable organizations to use business-quality, dynamic video, and audio to easily connect customers, employees, partners, or students anywhere, anytime.
Solutions in this new digital media systems technology category will extend digital media into new markets and compelling applications for realtime and on-demand broadcasting, to enable organizational transformation by putting the human face back into business.
The Cisco Digital Media System quickly and easily allows users to create, manage and deliver live and on-demand digital media in various formats to multiple wired or wireless connected devices. The solution utilizes the power of an Internet Protocol (IP) network as the platform to enhance productivity and business operations by improving communications and collaboration capabilities. The Digital Media System was developed in Cisco's Emerging Markets Technology Group, an internal venture team that focuses on innovation in adjacent markets beyond Cisco's traditional networking audience.
"While the digital media explosion has taken off in the consumer world, businesses are just beginning to realize the potential of video. The Cisco Digital Media System, combined with the power of the IP network as the platform, allows organizations to move to a business environment where compelling interactions and experiences are created and shared," says Marthin De Beer, vice president of Cisco's Emerging Markets Technology Group.
