Sony Electronics has expanded the feature set of its Ci professional media management and collaboration platform to include enterprise asset management.
Using Ci Catalog, media enterprises can build and securely manage centralised libraries of rich media. According to Sony, Ci Catalog makes it possible for organisations to make assets available to stakeholders throughout the enterprise.
Adding Ci Catalog to the platform’s overall capabilities means Ci now delivers secure content management from production through monetisation in a single platform. Using one solution to manage content across an enterprise saves time and money, reduces security concerns, increases collaboration and offers transparency and visibility into an organisation’s content, said Sony.
“The release of Catalog is a direct response to feedback we’ve received from some of the world’s largest and most recognisable media companies,” said Theresa Alesso, pro division president of Sony Electronics.
Ci Catalog integrates with Workspace, Ci’s production and post production workflow for remote acquisition, media processing and collaboration.
A Software-as-a Service (SaaS) platform, Ci accelerates file transfers, enables collaboration, review and approval, provides asset management and delivers transcoding and archiving with one subscription. Its REST APIs enable third-party application and workflow integration.
The platform, which enables users to access assets quickly from virtually anywhere, is offered on a pay-as-you-go basis that scales with the needs of media enterprises.
