TMD And ERA Team Up To Create New Cloud Subscription Service

News Image
TMD has teamed up with distribution partners ERA to create Coeus, a new cloud subscription service.

The joint venture will be exhibiting Coeus at IBC2016 in Amsterdam on Stand 2.B59.

The service is hosted in ERA's dedicated data centre in the UK and offers a comprehensive range of asset management applications which run on TMD's Mediaflex-UMS platform.

The first service offered is for cloud archiving and provides an intuitive web client to allow users to manage, archive and restore their media content.  The service can readily scale from systems for small workgroups to larger enterprises. The result is a fully managed digital content library which is media aware and maintained by a media specialist company.

Tony Taylor, chairman and founder of TMD, said: "Because this is targeted at media and production companies who want to be able to access their content, we have built the costs around moving and restoring large files cost effectively.  Whereas downloads can be a significant cost with established cloud providers, we have been able to build a pricing structure which is very attractive.

"This is likely to be extremely practical for media companies who need content storage near at hand with easy access, but don't want the trouble of maintaining a data infrastructure."

Sean Baker, Commercial Director at ERA, added: "We have considerable expertise in the underlying technologies that power the cloud and we have been successfully delivering outsourced services to our customers for many years. We are excited to now add TMD's growing range of cloud media services to that platform.”

The new service will be accessible through a simple web interface. The initial cloud offering concentrates on TMD's Paragon media services application for archiving. Other applications in the range will be made available in due course, such as OnPoint for post production, Chameleon for DAM and Aperture for ingest.

More information, and a free trial, will be made available later this month at
