6/26/2015 – A Peek Into Reuters Live Video Syndication Play with Mirror Image – VideoInk
“Newspapers aim more and more to participate in the 24/7 news cycle and report events live. Even though the desire is there, they are not as [equipped] to handle live video as a broadcaster might be, so a technological solution was needed to make this as easy as possible,” Hristo Guertchev, Senior Product Manager at Thomson Reuters, tells VideoInk. And to help in building that technological solution is Mirror Image, a real-time video delivery network that has over 17 years of track record helping publishers adapt to the fast moving changes related to media distribution.”

And the more sophisticated the application data can be, the more specific the ad can get to particular users, driving more value for advertisers.”

11/7/2014 - Expert: Demographics are evolving, so should brands –  BizReport

“Though new technologies often attract millennials, marketers frequently fail to recognize that, in today’s hyper-connected world, such advancements are no longer reserved for the young.

Mirror Image has gone a step further, introducing the CDN Edge Compute-as-a-service, where they have developed, and deployed the NoSQL couchbase database to all of their edge locations, where each POP acts like mini-data warehouse, ingesting data, analyzing it, processing it, in order to provide real time data to customers for real time decision making.”

“In August of 1981, a fledgling cable TV channel launched that forever changed music, television, advertising, marketing, and pop culture.

Now, 32 years after MTV’s arrival, the focus is on social, not music videos, and another revolution is underway that may completely redefine how we think about, consume, and interact with live and prerecorded visual content-courtesy of HuffPost Live (HPL).”

“The Content Delivery Network (CDN) industry has a legacy of offering fast, reliable delivery of digital content to computers connected to the Internet. Such delivery dramatically improved the web experience for content consumers and, as a result, helped to increase users’ interest in online shopping, browsing for information and the use of “cloud” based applications. This was the primary goal of CDNs and most did the job very well. Content delivery capabilities expanded to include video streaming to web-connected computers and, if everything was properly configured from the video origin to the user’s video player, the result was quite good.”

“Spoiler alert: Digital media has drastically changed how companies take advantage of media events to promote their brands through advertising. (That is, spoiler alert if you’ve been living under a digital rock for the past five or so years!) As two teams gear up for the final showdown of the NFL season – Super Bowl XLVII – fans across the country are making predictions about their teams and pulling out their favorite chip-and-dip combos to watch the final game with much anticipation and enthusiasm. With such a captive audience, advertising strategies from past sporting events offer precedent for many digital events to come, both for their successes and failures (such as the NBC Olympics delays). Today’s consumers want to engage with brands beyond traditional advertising, and companies realize this growing trend and hope to connect with their customers on a variety of device types and through various channels. Last year, a surprising 24.5 percent of brands that advertised surprisingly did not drive any digital channels – no URLs, hashtags, QR Codes, just the brand name. This year, we expect that number to be much lower.”
