Netflix’ CDN announcement and the operator video delivery landscape

“There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everything. ”

The Symbiotic Video Value Chain

The video delivery value chain can resemble a symbiotic system comprised of Online Video Content Providers, Content Delivery Networks, Network Operators and Consumers. Content Providers need a reliable network infrastructure to deliver content to their customers, who in turn subscribe to and consume their services.

The story behind our name and logo

The inspiration for the new Qwilt symbol was a common quilt pattern which forms a diamond shape made from cropped squares. These square shapes also allude to pixels found in any screen-based image or video. The colors were chosen to represent the rgb color system and the use of transparency is a key attribute of Qwilt’s philosophy. The final symbol brings together these elements to create a memorable and modern symbol for Qwilt as it emerges on the market.
