Boxer installs Telestream Vantage at ITV London
Boxer Systems, a leading UK solution provider for video, film and TV markets, has announced the successful installation and implementation of Telestream’s scalable, software-enabled Vantage Media Processing Platform at ITV London. Boxer Systems is Telestream’s UK channel partner and worked closely with ITV to specify, install and configure the system.
Jayson Chase, commercial director of Boxer, said: “ITV, as do many broadcasters, had a requirement to transcode ever larger amounts of data. For example, transcoding DPP compliant files to ProRes for international customers could only be done more-or-less in real time. Moreover, such time-consuming work was anticipated to increase, which they needed a system that could handle far more data, faster. After careful consideration, we determined that Telestream’s Vantage with the right platform for the job.”
Vantage is based on a flexible service-oriented architecture and is made up of discrete services and connectors that combine to create powerful automated workflows – all under unified system control. Vantage services provide transcoding, media capture, metadata processing, media analysis, and content assembly. Vantage connectors enable seamless, API-level integration with third-party systems.
Sonny Hanley, ITV head of content operations and delivery, said: “We’ve worked with Vantage for a number of years so when we wanted to look at increasing our transcoding capability we again chose the Telestream Vantage system because we know it is one of the market leaders in this area. Boxer made the installation very easy and we’ve seen a positive impact on our content delivery workflows.”
