BaaS offers new process12 September 2016
Broadcast-centric computing applications and services in the cloud are the IBC focus for Broadcast Media Communications (BMC), in partnership with MXF Server.
BMC said it can offer media companies global access and workflow orchestration through its latest offering, Broadcast as a Service (BaaS). BaaS is described by the company as its ‘next generation media platform providing off-premise linear and non-linear media processing functions to broadcasters and media companies in a pay-as-you-go or fully managed service package’.
Tim Horsfield, co-founder and CEO of BMC, explained: “By leveraging BaaS, we can now combine traditional broadcast functions with vScaler, our secure private cloud environment to offer scalability and cost advantages, coupled with unrivalled access without the large investments
normally associated with more traditional options.”
In conjunction with MXF Server, BMC is demonstrating remote video editing in the cloud. MXF Server is a software-only solution for film, broadcast and post production that the company said could provide editors with the freedom to open projects in different editing systems simultaneously.
