Challenges Facing Media Players
Whether they are large television networks, artists, producers or studios, media companies face similar challenges. These are driving them to the flexibility and scalability of cloud computing. The challenges include:
- Consumers are demanding more content choice than ever, which calls for more computing resources and power than was the case with traditional broadcasting. Additionally, the increase of delivery channels and devices calls for more flexible business systems and models to engage a diverse audience.
- Higher costs of technology acquisition and operations are frustrating many media companies. Increase in prices for content rights and competition from lower-cost entrants into the media industry are creating dire need for reduction of up-front investments in technology and alignment of costs to usage and revenue.
- Media companies are under time pressures to bring new experiences to the market. Consumers want quick expansion and evolution in content experiences, which forces broadcasters to accelerate development of solutions and rollout cycles to keep up.

Benefits of Angani Media Product
Angani’s media cloud allows users to access computing resources through the Internet, despite their location. Our media cloud advances the following benefits to its users:
- Faster Speeds
Cloud computing provides a platform to invest, test and release innovation to the market. Through the Angani Cloud, broadcasters can roll out their services within several weeks or months, instead of years. This ensures their service delivery cycle is at par with that of over-the-top (OTT) broadcasters.
The Angani Cloud gives media houses the scalability of handling spikes in their workload, live events, and surges in demand for new services. With our cloud model, infrastructure availability can expand or contract to cater for peak usage requirements, and clients pay only for the infrastructure they use. When it comes to delivery of live events online, our cloud has transformational effects on the ability to stream live events.
- Reduced CAPEX and OPEX
With growing consumer demand for a variety of content across different devices, media companies are experiencing higher CAPEX and OPEX due to purchase of additional in-house infrastructure. Angani’s media solution helps you avoid high investment, operation and running costs by providing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS); for which you only pay for the infrastructure you use, hence no surprises!
- Better Consumer Insight
The ease with which consumers can find and select the content they need from their device of choice impacts on revenue. Our cloud solutions allow broadcasters to collect, store and perform analytics on large amounts of data to generate insights for personalization, customer experience and service development.
- Service Innovation
Accessing computing resources without the need to build in-house IT infrastructure allows broadcasters to experiment with different cloud services to determine their potential to engage customers, and generate revenue without great investment risk. If managed properly, incumbent media owners can accelerate the effectiveness and speed of service innovation, thus putting them ahead of their competition.
Future Impact of Cloud on The Media Industry
The future of the media and entertainment industry is promising due to cloud media solutions. Media companies will fully realize digital supply of their content, which was previously obstructed by in-house systems, high server requirements and huge costs. The cloud overcomes these obstacles through on-demand virtualization services.
The cloud has lowered barriers to market entry, and despite your line of business, you can now move to distribution of visual and audio content. With such a readily available digital supply chain, rapid creation and delivery of innovative services to customers follows.
- Companies can now broadcast messages from key executives and offer in-house training using the Angani media platform.
