Viz One is a centralized and scalable platform to effortlessly ingest, manage, archive, edit, and deliver media along with associated metadata for creating a range of programming for multiple types of viewing experiences. Viz One can use Azure Storage for several use-cases. Firstly, Azure can provide native permanent storage for high-resolution video and audio files. Cloud-based permanent storage offers increased resiliency and requires lower storage expertise. Secondly, Azure can store proxy media used by Viz One Studio and Viz Story to optimize the remote user experience. The integration with Azure storage supports lifecycle management policies, allowing media to be automatically transitioned to different storage tiers to optimize cost and performance.
