arvato Systems extends Media Asset Management VPMS with Make.TVSeptember 12 2015
In the course of this, Make.TV’s Live Video Cloud and arvato Systems’ Media Asset Management will be consolidated to facilitate the work of production teams. It will enable content producers to browse, view, select and curate live and recorded contributions before they even hit the in-house production infrastructure.
Thanks to the new partnership with Make.TV, arvato Systems offers important benefits to their Enterprise MAM clients: Regardless of origin, the Live Video Cloud of Make.TV ensures that all incoming streams are ingested into their scalable cloud architecture. The content can be created by journalists and by other users with different recording devices – from professional broadcast technology through to a smartphone.
Multiple inputs require intensive monitoring and, using the multi-view facility provided by Make.TV, the editorial team can stay up-to-date with up to twelve live feeds at the same time. As the editorial teams curate incoming streams within the Make.TV Live Video Cloud, bandwidth and storage are conserved. Content is immediately available in VPMS using the latest EditMate features, high end remote editing is now a reality.
A live feed is more than a one-way information flow: selecting an input source in the Live Video Cloud makes it available for direct chat, voice or intercom communication – saving precious time and enabling real-time changes where needed.
Video streams are assigned directly to local broadcasting environments, live streaming destinations such as YouTube live, CDNs – as well as production systems such as EditMate or the VPMS MAM system. These target systems can then launch further workflows e.g. archiving. A separate installation for the integration of the Make.TV Live Video Cloud with VPMS is not required. Its intuitive interface means no additional training either.
“We are delighted that arvato Systems has decided to use our Live Video Cloud”, says Andreas Jacobi, CEO of Make.TV. “With the integration of our Live Video Cloud, arvato Systems is offering its customers many possibilities to quickly acquire, curate and ingest live content and recorded material.”
Stefan Eckardt, Head of Product & Presales Digital Media Management at arvato Systems is delighted with the fruits of the new cooperation. “This partnership provides our major broadcast customers with a truly future-oriented production method and supports our current Cloud strategy. The journey that media content takes from recording to distribution has been shortened to an extent that is positively revolutionary.”
