These next-generation, networked appliances are also extremely easy to manage. Users can remotely configure and manage video delivery via a web-based interface that will allow streaming to be set up in mere minutes. This ease of management, combined with the reliability of the VBrick 7000 HD series, will enable low administrative costs and increased usage for enterprise users.
