ERA introduces Cloud services25 June 2013
ERA has unveiled ERA Cloud , a new on-demand services platform tailored to the needs of broadcast and media companies.
ERA Cloud offers access to leading technology, with services currently available through the e-store platform including IaaS, servers on demand, security and continuity, media management and publishing.
“As experts in IT and broadcast workflow, ERA is perfectly positioned to help media organisations embrace the benefits of cloud-based technology, “ said Sean Baker, ERA’s commercial director. “We’ve created ERA Cloud to help businesses manage digital assets more efficiently, without additional hardware expenditure or IT headaches.”
The company has also launched a new cloud-based media management and publishing system: ERA MediaCloud. The pay-as-you-go hosted system enables content owners, broadcasters and post production companies to manage, publish and monetise video, audio and image files. Using the system, content owners can distribute and monetise their assets through a branded web interface, allowing visitors to watch content online, search detailed information and buy clips for private viewing or commercial use.
Working in a secure hosted environment broadcasters and post production companies can also deploy the system to manage their media and collaborate remotely on project reviews and approvals. ERA MediaCloud integrates into existing systems, making it possible to streamline workflows, increase productive capacity and speed of delivery.
