Disruptive innovations reshaping the digital landscape
Last updated: 18 September 2023
In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, disruptive innovations play a pivotal role in reshaping industries and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Here, we’ll delve into three groundbreaking innovations that are set to revolutionize their respective domains: Multi CDN Solutions, Transcoding Advancements, and Cookieless Ad Tech.
Multi CDN Solutions: Extreme uptime, performance, portability, and price reduction
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) have long been the backbone of the internet, ensuring fast and reliable global content delivery. The emergence of Multi CDN solutions takes this to a whole new level. These innovations offer extreme uptime, performance, portability, and price reductions that are nothing short of game-changing.
Extreme Uptime and Performance
Multi CDN solutions combine the strengths of multiple CDNs, ensuring that your media remains online even during unexpected traffic surges or CDN outages. This enhanced reliability is critical for businesses that rely on uninterrupted online services. Thanks to active load balancing and algorithms, Jet-Stream Airflow Multi CDN offers the highest uptime and performance possible.
By distributing content across multiple CDNs, you can ensure faster load times and greater availability for users worldwide. This redundancy minimizes the risk of downtime due to a single CDN failure and optimizes content delivery based on geographic proximity, resulting in a better user experience. Thanks to partnerships with specialised CDNs, Jet-Stream can guarantee performance and scale in specific regions such as the Middle-East, Africa and China, on top of European, American and Asian coverage.
With multi CDN solutions, you can easily switch between CDN providers or distribute your content across various providers. This level of portability empowers them to adapt swiftly to changing market conditions and optimize their content delivery strategies.
Perhaps most disruptively, multi CDN solutions bring significant cost reductions. By intelligently distributing traffic and leveraging the most cost-effective CDN options, you can save substantial amounts on their content delivery expenses. This cost-efficiency can be a game-changer for startups and established enterprises alike. Jet-Stream Airflow’s built-in algorithm guarantees proximity, uptime and performance, while always selecting the cheapest path, saving up to 40% in traffic costs.
It comes bundled for free
Airflow Multi CDN is integrated into Jet-Stream Cloud. Imagine the cost and time savings: you don’t have to negotiate contracts with multiple CDNs, you don’t have to integrate with multiple CDNs, and you don’t have to run your own load-balancing platform. It is disrupting how you work with CDNs.
Transcoding Advancements: Cost and energy efficiency, user-friendly interfaces, and low latency
Transcoding, the process of converting media files into different formats and qualities, has seen remarkable advancements that promise to reduce costs and energy consumption while improving user experiences.
The introduction of Jet-Stream’s easy-to-use transcoding interfaces democratizes the process, making it accessible to a wider range of users. This empowers content creators to efficiently convert their media without the need for specialized technical skills.
Achieving a one-frame latency in transcoding is a remarkable feat. This ultra-low latency ensures that live streaming and interactive applications deliver content almost instantaneously, greatly enhancing the user experience for many use cases.
Cost and energy efficiency
Innovations in transcoding at Jet-Stream have led to a staggering 75% reduction in costs and an even more incredible 89% reduction in energy consumption. This not only benefits content creators but also contributes to a greener and more sustainable digital ecosystem. We calculated that you save over 7 million euros compared to AWS if you transcode 80 Full HD channels for 5 years. That’s disruptive.
On-premises and cloud
Jet-Stream MaelStrom transcoding technology can run both in the cloud and on-premises. The latter saves you even more per channel. Since MaelStrom is cloud technology, your on-premises, hardware-accelerated service automatically becomes a transcoding cloud. That’s disrupting the encoding/transcoding appliance industry.
Cookieless Ad Tech: Higher ad revenue, privacy-friendly advertising, and IAB compliance
As concerns over data privacy mount, innovations in cookieless advertising technology are transforming the digital advertising landscape.
Higher Ad Revenue
New cookieless ad tech solutions have shown a 40% increase in ad revenue results. By relying on alternative data sources and contextual targeting, advertisers can achieve better ROI without compromising user privacy. That is a win-win.
In the era of heightened privacy regulations, cookieless ad tech ensures that user data is protected. This shift towards more ethical and transparent advertising practices builds trust between consumers and advertisers.
The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) sets industry standards, and cookieless ad tech solutions are designed to comply with these standards. This ensures that advertisers can navigate the evolving regulatory landscape with confidence. Jet-Stream’s cookieless advertising technologies are IAB VAST compliant.
Automated context generation
If the above described benefits aren’t disruptive enough, here’s another: Jet-Stream introduces AI context generation, automatically creating subtitles, titles, IAB categories and a summary of every video, automatically generating context so advertisers can target without a need for the content publisher to create this data.
It’s bundled for free
Yes, you read that right: Jet-Stream’s cookieless contextual ad tech comes bundled for free with Jet-Stream Privacy Player Pro. Which comes free with Jet-Stream Cloud Pro, Enterprise and Broadcaster packages. That’s disrupting the ad and video player business.
Workflow Orchestration: Reducing operational load and increasing flexibility
To complement these innovations, powerful workflow orchestration interfaces, tools, and APIs are emerging. They promise to reduce operational burdens, increase flexibility, and provide granular control—all at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional system integrators and cloud solutions.
By streamlining processes, automating tasks, and offering modular solutions, these orchestration tools empower businesses to adapt swiftly to changing demands and seize opportunities in the dynamic digital landscape. Thanks to Jet-Stream’s award-winning streaming workflow orchestration and automation tools you can now enjoy the benefits of having a large team of clouds and streaming engineers, without having to pay for them. System houses and system integrators are being disrupted.
These are example innovations that represent a transformative shift in their respective domains, redefining how content is delivered, media is transcoded, and advertising is conducted. Their disruptive potential promises not only improved efficiency and performance but also a more privacy-conscious and sustainable digital future. Businesses that embrace these innovations will be well-positioned to thrive in an ever-evolving digital world.
