The Infrastructure Challenges in Keeping Up with Corporate Video Demand

 

The very best in class technology for a building or facility is tech that’s explicitly planned for and integrated with foresight. That’s the message today’s guests from Pennsylvania-based Z-Band Technologies discussed with host Sean Heath on the Pro AV podcast.

Video has become a preeminent content delivery method everywhere from social media, to video search engine, to shopping.

“We’re in a space where the amount of data we’re using for video transmissions on Amazon, Facebook or Twitter feed is expected to be over 80 percent of our Wi-Fi traffic by the year 2022,” said Dan Helfrick, Z-Band vice president.

Working with audio visual designers, consultants and commercial end customers, Z-Band is an industry expert for ultra-reliable, easy to use products and services as it pertains to the mass distribution and control of video for business.

But the same video-streaming luxuries we’ve come to expect at home via Wi-Fi don’t necessarily translate to corporate and public facility infrastructures, where executives envision having their favorite channels in crystal clear HD in common viewing areas.

“Everybody’s looking for a little bit of everything now,” he said.

 said Joe Dalto“Rarely is Wi-Fi the best choice,” said Joe Dalto, Z-Band’s southwest territory Manager. “When you are in a corporate or healthcare environment where the quality of the video is important, you need to make sure you have a dedicated amount of bandwidth or infrastructure available for the video platform.”

That’s when a hardwired video distribution system is the best choice.

“People will spend a lot of time on data infrastructure, fiber backbone, security services, those types of things, and the actual TV system doesn’t always get planned for,” Helfrick said.
