Hi HDS Community,

April brings many new and exciting opportunities for the Telecom and Media Industry including a new fiscal year for HDS starting April 1st, 2016.  Spring brings the new technology, including a series of new converged platform solutions for the Telecom and Media markets from HDS which focus on Converged, Content, Cloud, and Analytics across our comprehensive portfolio offerings.  Stay tuned to the HDS Community and for more details on the Converged Telecom Platform and Converged Media Platform starting this month. 


The National Association of Broadcasters 2016 event is also this month April 16th to 21st, and highlights the Converged Media Platforms and Cloud based workflows for HD, and UHD content for Broadcast, Episodic, and Cinematic based production and post production as well and baseband to IP-based workflows.  The demonstrations from HDS are also hosted alongside Hitachi Kokusai at their exhibition stand C4309 and should provide to be a view of end-to-end production capabilities that Hitachi can provide to the Broadcast and Media Industry.  If you are attending NAB please stop by the exhibition stand to visit HDS and Hitachi Kokusai and view the great new offerings and meet with one of our experts and executives.


HDS continues to participate in several key industry initiatives for the M&E Market such as the Entertainment Technology Center, Production in the Cloud as well as Framework for Interoperable Media Services.  Some of the new directions for HDS in the near future will focus on Video Analytics and Media Analytics as the Telecom and Media industries begin to operate streaming video as a primary method of video delivery.  This will require advanced and adaptive analytics as content consumption is significantly rising towards streaming for HD and even UHD content across the various Telecom network backbones on mobile and wifi networks.
