TBS selects Kayak workflow platform

Turner Broadcasting System (TBS) has chosen Digital Rapids‘ Kayak workflow platform to power Turner’s media processing operations for its current and future multi-screen video initiatives. The two companies have collaborated on advanced workflows to bring Turner’s content to audiences across viewing platforms. As the technology platform powering the upcoming version 2.0 of the Digital Rapids Transcode Manager high-volume media processing software, Kayak integrates with existing Transcode Manager deployments while adding new levels of automation and new video processing functionality. “We have developed our own custom Kayak components, enabling seamless integration with Turner’s existing business systems,” said Brooks Tobey, SVP Sales Solutions and Multi-Screen Development & Delivery at Turner. “We are pleased to partner with Digital Rapids to further our digital encoding initiatives.” “This platform allows us to efficiently process and deliver content from our news and entertainment services across a wide array of consumer platforms,” said Keith Chandler, vice president, Media and Multi-Platform Operations at Turner. “We’re proud that Turner Broadcasting, a pioneer in the multi-screen delivery of premium content, has chosen Kayak as the foundation of their media operations,” said Brick Eksten, president and CEO of Digital Rapids Corporation. “Kayak is the ideal platform to enable forward-thinking media organisations to execute on their ideas, while freeing them to focus on their core business rather than the technology that supports it. We’re also thrilled to be building on our successful relationship with Turner with our new strategic partnership, through which both of our companies will benefit from our close collaboration.”
