WJCT Automates Video Workflow With Telestream Vantage

Telestream, a leading provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, has announced that Jacksonville, Florida-based WCT, a local television and radio broadcast station, selected Telestream Vanatage enterprise-class server software to solve a number of video workflow challenges.
A long-time Telestream FlipFactory user, WJCT upgraded to Vantage to take advantage of its ability to automate a greater number of the station's workflow processes. Since implementing Vantage, WJCT has streamlined its operations, and enabled producers to create more content for television, radio and the web.
Duane Smith, Director of Technology at WJCT, said: "When I learned about Vantage, I knew that it would allow us to leverage our investment by automating more of our workflow processes. Vantage has allowed us to work the real-time aspect out of almost all of our operations and work faster than real time. Our production arm is now able to spend more time creating and delivering new content, faster and more efficiently. And, we've now automated processes that were 100% manual prior to implementing Vantage."
Vantage allows WJCT to create intelligent video workflows that make decisions and perform actions, without requiring manual intervention. This includes determining if content is curtained or letterboxes, and automatically performing actions based on those findings. WJCT also uses Vantage to monitor editing systems, move and convert material for master control, the web and the PBS Cove project with minimal user intervention. Additionally, Vantage is used to remove all real-time transfers of underwriting materials - from creation, approval, QA and loading into the on-air server - with email notifications alluring everyone to the status of the process.
Barbara DeHart, Vice President of Marketing at Telestream, said: "WJCT is a perfect example of the unified approach that Vantage brings to solving diverse video workflow challenges across the enterprise. We're pleased that Vantage has enabled WJCT to tie together almost all of its file-based workflow processes."
Smith elaborated: "We use a large storage array and Vantage to tie processes together for seamless manipulation of content. Vantage provides automatic content ingest, sharing, conversion, analysis, delivery and notification. Vantage has allowed us to more closely tie television and radio together with automated conversions and transfers out to the web or delivery wherever it needs to be."
Telestream Vantage video workflow design, automation and management software is built on a modular, affordable, future-proof platform. Vantage combines video transcoding, capture, analysis, metadata processing, delivery and notification into a unified framework developed to meet the long-term needs of a rapidly changing video industry.
