Just before he headed to IBC, TV Newscheck’s Phil Kurz talked to Deluxe MediaCloud’s Maurizio Cimelli to get some insight on how broadcasters in Europe are responding to IP and virtualization as an alternative to traditional broadcast functions, like playout, master control, MAM and delivery (read that here
). Digging deeper into our stats, we found a significant uptrend of adoption, and are happy to share those milestones. Today, in addition to delivering NFL content for MP & Silva completely over IP across Europe, we count:

• Playing out over 61 IP-based channels
• Originating more than 500,000 hours of IP-based content per year
• With the ability to deliver 2,800,000 IP-based live video streams per day (note that this amount of traffic is unlikely to occur simultaneously – but that volume is possible and supported by Deluxe); which equates to more than 20 million hours of IP-based live video delivery per year.
