Workflow in the cloud

Modern media workflows are evolving. To meet the challenges of geographically distributed workgroups, quicker deadlines, and a greater number of ingest and delivery options, media production companies are re-evaluating their workflows to improve productivity and drive efficiency. With the cloud’s innate ability to connect distributed locations, many companies are considering adding cloud capabilities to their workflows.

Integrating a media workflow into the cloud can be daunting for many companies, which is why partnering with our team of experts, we will be able to provide a clear solution which will keep your content secure and improve efficiency.

Automation and Playout

Managing the growing complexity of playout, automation and file delivery is an increasing challenge to broadcasters. As the number of channels and platforms a broadcaster delivers rises, controlling that infrastructure is critical. Software-based solutions, with technologies such as high-density virtualisation and IP stream I/O, offer the possibility to consolidate complexity into bite-sized elements - particularly as more features can be added to collapse the length of the traditional broadcast chain.
