 Project objective

VIRTUOSA addresses the needs of the Media & Entertainment (M&E) industry to increase efficiency and reduce cost for media production to meet the growing consumer demand for more content on more channels and more devices and for more live content. Live content is of cultural and social interest for all citizen in Europe and globally; these are sport or music events, daily news, governmental speeches or historical events. The market for Live content is huge and predicted to reach globally USD 545 bn with the clear majority (66%) coming from broadcast Live TV.

VIRTUOSA will revolutionise live media production through Virtualisation of network and production resources. It is a new generation of media networks based on cutting-edge IP technology, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technology, High Performance Computing, and Cloud Computing.

Virtualisation is the key to make live media production more efficient, easy scalable and cost-efficient. It enables sharing production facilities, equipment, resources, and talents across locations with >1000 km in distance . Live media production costs will be reduced by 30-40%, and more Live content can be easily produced in parallel.

Objective of the VIRTUOSA project is to demonstrate and validate our new VIRTUOSA product in operational environment and to complete commercial and production preparations for product launch within this 24-month project.

Our VIRTUOSA product consists of three core elements: 1) A tailor-made Software Defined Network Architecture solution for SDN-based LAN & WAN and 5G acquisition, 2) High performance SDN-based Media Server and Ethernet/IP switches, and 3) a Software for Media Network Management and self-Service Orchestration. According to the need of our end-users – broadcasters, content producers, media service providers – we design tailor-made solutions for installation at their facilities with and without the connection to remote locations (remote studio, stadium, event).
