Red Bee Media is to deploy Synamedia Quortex just-in-time technology for disaster recovery for live streaming services.
Quortex’s cloud-native solution provisions back up resources only when required. Synamedia said the technology offers unprecedented cost savings for disaster recovery as well as reducing energy use and helping Red Bee Media meet its sustainability goals.
Olivier Braun, Product Manager of Streaming Services at Red Bee, said, “It was easy to extend and configure Quortex as a key component of our disaster recovery for streaming services. Setting up each channel only takes a couple of minutes, and Quortex’s just-in-time processing model meets our needs for a cost-effective, yet immediately available, disaster recovery environment.”
Red Bee has been a Quortex customer since 2018, using its just-in-time architecture to support hundreds of OTT services each month for video, live events and radio. Red Bee uses Quortex to build streams on-the-fly, based on viewers’ locations, devices and time zones.
Marc Baillavoine, Senior Director of Product Management at Synamedia, added “We continue to demonstrate the power of just-in-time content processing for Red Bee. Using DevOps tools, we easily integrated with Red Bee’s managed OTT back end, making it possible to automatically deploy and configure tens of live streams in minutes on any cloud provider anywhere.”
Quortex was acquired by Synamedia in July 2022 and complements Synamedia Vivid Workflow-as-a-Service (WaaS).
The Quortex technology will be demonstrated at IBC 2022 in Hall 5 on both the Quortex stand G53 and on the Synamedia stand A69.
