Synamedia augments video network with Telestream VOD
Synamedia is boosting its portolio through a partnership with video on demand (VOD) workflow solutions vendor Telestream. The partnership builds on Synamedia’s announcement of new products at IBC that are designed to simplify and optimise end-to-end video workflows.
Synamedia will offer Telestream’s Vantage media processing platform including Vantage Transcode Multiscreen, which automates multiscreen VOD workflows and speeds up the encoding process. Converting directly from a wide variety of source formats, it creates adaptive bitrate packages. This results in improved picture quality, reduced bit rates and lower CDN distribution costs.
Synamedia is also offering Telestream Timed Text Flip for versatile subtitle and caption editing, Vantage Array for scalability and redundancy, and Vantage Analysis for workflow decision-making and design.
The Telestream Vantage products complement Synamedia’s video network solutions such as Digital Content Manager (DCM). Synamedia’s virtualised DCM supports linear TV broadcast and live streaming, and enables live transcoding at multiple bit rates and in multiple formats.
