Huawei has teamed up with Sony Professional to showcase cloud-based high-end media solutions based on Open Telekom Cloud, the public cloud platform from T-Systems, of which Huawei is the public cloud partner.
Open Telekom Cloud, “an affordable, scalable and easy to use cloud infrastructure solution”, provides on-demand and secure cloud services with optimized performance for media content and video processing allowing companies enabling solutions like Sony’s Media Backbone Hive cloud-based production system to assess dynamic market conditions.
Commenting on the latest partnership, Zhipeng Ren, President of Cloud Business Unit, Western Europe, Huawei, has said, “Bringing together the Huawei powered Open Telekom Cloud and the media knowledge and experience of partners such as Sony Professional, we have created a new level of cloud-based media solutions to serve customers all over the world.”

With our Media Backbone Hive news production system hosted in the Open Telekom Cloud, we are providing a universal tool that is redefining production. Instead of having to use expensive, complex equipment, by shifting news operations into cloud journalists can create their content using web-based tools online, directly in the cloud – providing multi-platform production for TV, web, mobile devices and social media reach new internet-driven audiences without the need to spend more. – Stuart Almond, Head of Marketing, Sony Professional Solutions Europe
The Huawei Media Cloud Solution is currently being used in film, television, and communications media organizations in more than ten countries across Western Europe, the Middle-East, the Asia-Pacific, along with countries in other parts of the world. This has allowed media users to rapidly become a part of an all-inclusive, all-mobile, all-cloud media business transformation.
Huawei has helped France’s TFI TV Station to construct a converged media cloud platform to improve program production efficiency. Huawei and United Arab Emirates’ telecom operator has come together to build a media industry cloud that provides customers with a full cloud to production, broadcasting, distributing, and filing services, reducing their O&M costs.
