Racetech selects Cambridge Imaging Systems solution for horse racing video publishing
Cambridge Imaging Systems has revealed that RaceTech, the supplier of technical and broadcast services to the British horse racing industry, has chosen ImagenCloud as its video publishing platform for in-house use for its racecourse customers.
RaceTech provides a unique range of technical and broadcast services to the horse racing industry, as well as the wider public and private sectors – from cameras and full broadcast services to building and maintaining the complete digital library of every horse race in the UK.
The company required a secure content management and publishing system that would allow them to share media with their racecourse clients, including clips and edits from racecourse TV to demonstrate what is possible and how it can add to the racecourse experience, as a showcase for RaceTech’s facilities and capabilities. The system needed to have a professional-looking front-end, guarantee optimum security, and be quick to learn and deploy.
“We considered using several popular video solutions but wanted something more professional to put in front of our clients, and ease of use for customers and staff alike was paramount,” says Mark Johnson, head of engineering at RaceTech. “We chose ImagenCloud because it allows us to provide a customised, branded experience to our racecourse clients. It was incredibly easy to set up – we took the system from vanilla to the RaceTech brand in just a few hours – and it’s easy for our clients to login, search and stream content, whether on their laptops, tablets or smart phones. Importantly, ImagenCloud also acts as an abstraction layer to our central media management systems, keeping them secure. It’s an ideal solution for all our requirements.”
Tom Blake, managing director, Cambridge Imaging Systems, adds: “Companies like RaceTech are constantly building their libraries of content and need a simple and cost-effective way to manage their data. ImagenCloud provides the tools to manage and publish videos, images and audio content, enabling our customers to customise, brand, share and search their media, and allowing them to create new revenue opportunities with their own enterprise video platform.”
