Telestream Brings New Vantage Products To Market

Telestream, a leading provider of video transcoding and workflow solutions, has announced the release of three major new enterprise-class system management products in the Vantage video workflow family: Vantage Enterprise Control, Vantage Master Control, and Vantage Team Management.
Telestream also announced the release of Vantage 3.0 which adds support for a number of new video and audio formats, wrappers and systems and new video workflow design and automation features. Vantage server-based software products automate content ingest, transcoding, video file interoperability, video production workflows, and multi-channel distribution for content owners, creators, broadcast, cable and new media companies.
Barbara DeHart, Vice President of Marketing at Telestream, said: "The new Vantage products expand our capabilities in video transcoding and workflow automation with the proven large-scale media production and system management expertise gained from our Agility group. Vantage products now provoke solutions from single-server transcoding to very large and highly-complex systems."
Craig Berlin, Director of Broadcast Communications at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, said: "At UNC Charlotte, we require files for broadcast automation, iTunes, YouTube, Flash, video-on-demand and archive, along with metadata to support the ever-increasing requirements of media distribution. We chose Vantage because of the exceptional opportunities its innovative schematic workflow provides. Vantage has streamlined our transcode process; the Workflow Portal tool has made the entry of metadata easier and clearer for our operators; and the addition of the new job status tools in Team Management promise to solve many of the challenges of workflow design."
New Vantage Enterprise System Management products, Vantage Enterprise Control and Vantage Master Control, provide scalability, predictability and resiliency for large-scale and mission-critical file-based video workflow environments.
Vantage Enterprise Control maximises workflow capacity, resiliency, throughput and reliability. With automated response to fluctuations in processing or media loads, customisable task scheduling, and tools for analysing workflow, system bottlenecks and throughput, Vantage Enterprise Control also saves money, power and cooling by improving hardware efficiency.
Vantage Master Control adds full dashboard views and historical reporting to provide complete visibility of the workflow and underlying systems involved. This removes the complexity of managing large-scale systems with a single, unified view. Vantage Master Control also integrates Telestream Agility 2G directly into Vantage. This enables Agility 2G transcoding services to be embedded within Vantage workflows, providing Agility 2G users with access to the full power of Vantage, including dashboards, automated decision making.
In addition, Vantage Team Management allows the creation of user accounts and custom web-based job status views for any Vantage installation. With multiple operators, administrators and departments performing transcoding and video workflow automation tasks, Vantage Team Management provides the ability to manage user permissions and visibility which allows for broader access and improved system protection across the enterprise.
Duane Smith, Director of Technology at WJCT, said: "WJCT is looking forward to the new functionality in Vantage 3.0. The new web-based dashboard features in Master Control will allow us to monitor our system from a central control GUI. The optimisation features in Enterprise Control will allow us to more closely analyse and understand all of our workflows, while helping to minimise capital expense for processing power. Team Management will allow for well-defined responsibilities based on users; this functionality will be key for a project we are working on for a combined maser control facility."
Vantage 3.0 also includes support for a number of new formats, wrappers and systems; third-party connectivity features; video workflow automation features; and general improvements to the user interface and SDK.
Vantage 3.0 is now available from Telestream's worldwide network of direct sales and distributors.
