Built on an open and integrated ICT architecture, the solutions, which include IP-based all-in-one network, high definition (HD) program production and broadcast, tapeless media database and post-production systems, help customers in the media industry enhance business agility and operational efficiency.

The constant evolution of digital technologies has been accelerating the expansion of HDTV channels, 3D/IMAX film markets, and emerging mobile media markets. HDTV, digital media libraries, and omnimedia have become growing trends in the media industry. Through customer-centric innovation and collaboration with partners, Huawei is committed to providing secure, efficient, and sustainable one-stop solutions and optimal services for customers in the M&E industry. For instance, the recently launched HD production solutions for TV stations feature the following key benefits:

  • Elimination of sound or image freeze or frame loss: By deploying a 1.25GB dynamic large-cache switch in the access layer of the workstation, Huawei M&E ICT solutions effectively help eliminate sound or image freeze or frame loss due to packet loss caused by explosive video streams.
  • Minimal end-to-end link delay time from workstation to storage systems: Long frame transmission time (over 40ms per frame) can lead to video freeze and low production efficiency. To tackle this, Huawei solutions ensure a less than 40 ms end-to-end link delay time from the workstation to storage systems through zoning design based on packaging, transcoding, rough editing, and fine editing, as well as flat two-layer network, link load balancing algorithm, and storage file system parameter optimization.
  • Reduce operation and maintenance (O&M) costs: Huawei’s IP-based network-attached storage (NAS) and non-blocking switching network solutions help customers address challenges of network complexity and high operation and maintenance (O&M) costs due to the dual-network architecture for non-linear editing. With the solutions, customers can effectively streamline network architecture and reduce O&M costs by 50%.

Additionally, Huawei and CCTV (China Central Television) have recently announced a strategic partnership during Huawei Cloud Congress 2013. Under the partnership, both Huawei and CCTV will collaborate in a number of areas, such as big data storage and massive media asset management, to provide cutting-edge technologies and application models customized for the ICT evolution in the M&E industry.

Huawei will be providing a system that features large-capacity and high storage performance, significantly improving data access and management efficiency. In addition, the system will help save energy consumption by 60% to 80%, making it the most eco-friendly media storage system in the industry.
