ITV London is now using Telestream’s software-enabled Vantage Media Processing Platform after a successful implementation by partner Boxer Systems.
Boxer worked closely with ITV to specify, install, and configure the system.
Vantage is based on a flexible service-oriented architecture and is made up of discrete services and connectors that combine to create automated workflows – all under unified system control. Vantage services provide transcoding, media capture, metadata processing, media analysis, and content assembly. Vantage connectors enable seamless, API-level integration with third-party systems.
Jayson Chase, commercial director, Boxer said, “ITV, as do many broadcasters, had a requirement to transcode ever larger amounts of data. For example, transcoding DPP compliant files to ProRes for international customers could only be done more-or-less in real time. Moreover, such time-consuming work was anticipated to increase, which they needed a system that could handle far more data, faster. After careful consideration, we determined that Telestream’s Vantage with the right platform for the job.”
Sonny Hanley, ITV head of content operations and delivery added: “We’ve worked with Vantage for a number of years so when we wanted to look at increasing our transcoding capability we again chose the Telestream Vantage system because we know it is one of the market leaders in this area. Boxer made the installation very easy and we’ve seen a positive impact on our content delivery workflows.”
