Online publishing giant uses optimized video delivery to scale video across its entire organization. Thomson Reuters is the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals. Rueters Insider is their award-winning online video platform that goes beyond the headlines to provide expert commentary and in-depth analysis about the latest trends and issues affecting global markets. Customer rely on it to get the insights they are looking for, as well as distribute their own multimedia content.
When preparing to deploy Reuters Insider they wanted to make sure customers would be able to easily deliver the multimedia platform across their networks. To be successful, it had to reliably deliver the multimedia content to thousands of desktops, located in a number of offices, without increasing WAN costs or impacting the performance of the corporate network.
Thomson Reuters deployed ProxySG appliances to efficiently distribute video within an enterprise’s network. The appliances reduce the risk of the service overloading (peaking) during a live show, with split-streaming technology that takes in one stream, caches it, and redistributes it within the network, delivering a more efficient, reliable overall experience.
