Edgeware will demonstrate its cloud-native software at the Inter BEE trade show in Chiba, Japan, from 14-16 November. Edgeware’s software will run in containers on Amazon Web Services (AWS), preparing OTT TV streams for glitch-free viewing and personalised ad insertion. 

“Many of our customers are adopting cloud services, so it is important we can optimise our solutions for this environment,” commented Karl Thedéen, CEO at Edgeware. “Edgeware is a great example of a purpose-built solution like our TV origin, which leverages the benefits of cloud services from AWS. Showcasing it in Japan will help us develop opportunities in this exciting market.”

Edgeware will be running its TV Content Capture and TV Repackager origin products on AWS. Edgeware’s cloud-native software uses Docker containers and Kubernetes orchestration and provisioning to simplify the operating environment and reduce costs. 

“Cloud providers like AWS are attractive because of their flexibility and scale, and containers were designed for this type of deployment,” said Johan Bolin, VP products at Edgeware. “They add even greater efficiency and are easier to maintain and operate than traditional monolithic software.”

The Edgeware demonstration can be seen at the AWS booth in Hall 6 /6402 of the Makuhari Messe, Chiba.
