Pebble is joining Amazon Web Services’s partner network and has completed the cloud provider’s Foundational Technical Review (FTR) programme for its virtualised playout solution.
The company said it intends to leverage its AWS partner status and AWS FTR certification to work closely with the AWS community, identifying new customer-focused solutions that follow best practices for scalable cloud workflows, security, performance, and operational efficiency.
Pebble’s virtualised playout solution is a software-defined virtualised IP channel, which offers users the ability to launch and decommission channels for short-term requirements, as well as host an operational infrastructure within a standard data centre environment.
Peter Mayhead, chief executive officer at Pebble said: “More and more broadcasters are navigating the best route to leveraging cloud solutions that are suited to their operations both practically and financially. And to do this they need a technology partner they can trust. I’m incredibly proud of the efforts made by the teams at Pebble for having passed such a rigorous process to successfully complete the AWS Foundational Technical Review and achieve AWS partner status. This success shows our growing customer base that we are certified experts in our field and committed to delivering cloud solutions that will work for them.”
Pebble’s head of R&D Daniel Robinson added: “While the future of media playout and control is clearly headed toward the cloud, not all organisations are ready to fully move away from their on-premises, legacy-based infrastructures.
“By working with the AWS community, we will greatly enhance our ability to develop and customise cloud solutions for broadcasters, and we can especially cater for those who are not ready to make the leap to full cloud playout, offering hybrid solutions that will allow them to migrate at a pace that makes the most sense for the long-term success of their operations.”
