Head in the Clouds

Cloud is not only a game changer for giant companies like Netflix. Because of the huge variety of Cloud “As A Service” offerings, even small startup production companies can play in the same sandbox, without an equally epic capital expenditure. 

Cloud’s unique ability to allow you to pay on demand means that costs are only incurred while work is actually being executed. Plus, as the cloud infrastructure matures (and competition increases) prices are driven down, which is only good news for the consumer, especially in terms of budget for storage and bandwidth. Cloud is also reaching a wider audience with new technology now able to deliver to everything from smart TVs to phones, tablets, and computers.  

Every facet of the entertainment industry has benefited from the recent updates in cloud technology. Recently we attended the AVN Show in Las Vegas, and the new developments providing the ability to host thousands of webcams simultaneously has become extremely affordable, and more importantly profitable. Cloud based content delivery networks are more sophisticated and faster than ever, and available for a fraction of the price. Cloud has brought a quantum shift for the entertainment industry over the last 5 years, the next 5 will only bring more innovation.

Naughty and Nice

We are currently attending the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas in support of one of our clients, Penthouse Global Media. Online adult entertainment has been around since the earliest days of the internet, and while some still consider it the seedy side of the web, the reality is that online adult entertainment is a booming and profitable industry.

The technology required to run, maintain, and secure these sites is some of the most powerful and complicated around.  Massive server farms, content delivery networks, rendering applications, and enormous amounts of bandwidth are required to deliver a quality product on a daily basis.  With the constant demand for higher definition video, virtual reality, and instant delivery, today’s technology is pushed to its limits. Watching the end product may be culturally frowned upon, but the tech powering it is second to none. Businesses can learn a lot from how these complicated tools work together to deliver the sought-after streamlined user experience. There’s always something to be learned from a big business model, even in the most unlikely of places!
