Video content takes an increasingly important place in the data structure of any modern enterprise. PJSC Severstal ( www.severstal.com ), one of the leading vertically integrated mining and steel companies, actively implements and applies the capabilities of video transmission technologies for information, training, interaction with employees and partners of the company. The use of the Wowza Streaming Engine media server for organizing a distributed network of media content delivery made it possible to provide comfortable viewing of live video broadcasts and video files in the company's divisions, connected to unified data network and located in several regions of Russia. Thanks to the support of most streaming protocols, viewing of broadcasts is provided both on the page of the corporate web portal and on the screens of the corporate television system (digital signage). Videos (VOD) are also viewed using a streaming system, thereby significantly reducing the load on the web portal and the network infrastructure in general.
"The solution to the problem of building a video content delivery network (CDN) is one of the key features of the Wowza Streaming Engine software. The possibility of easy scaling was incorporated into the architecture of the media server from the very beginning. We are pleased to use this technology to create a corporate CDN network for one of the largest industrial enterprises in Russia," said Alexey Ostroumov, CEO of PWI.
