Cisco Systems Inc. unveils the latest version of Cisco MXE 5600 for use on the “medianet” which is designed to make it easier for users to deploy, use and search for video, the company says in a written statement.
The Cisco MXE 5600 is one of Cisco Systems’ flagship products designed for media transformation, says Cisco of San Jose, Calif. The MXE 5600 is a system that can analyze video content and create tags based on video and audio content, such as speaker or topic. Furthermore, it provides a wide variety of media-processing services, including dynamic format conversions, so that video can be consumed on any device at anytime, regardless of format, the company says. As a result, users can benefit from automatic social tagging and provide opportunities to search and navigate video based on content, according to the company.
In addition, medianet is an end-to-end architecture for video and rich media designed to help network operators and information technology managers more effectively manage and deploy multiple video systems, according to the company.
Cisco also introduced a group of plug-and-play medianet-enabled products and systems. Those “smart” products and systems include medianet-enabled digital media player to a video surveillance system, and they are equipped with “embedded intelligence” that enables the network to automatically recognize and configure the smart products and systems when they are deployed. That provides users with new ways to scale video faster and help users reduce the cost of deploying video.
