Pixel Power has partnered with Qvest Media to bring its playout and automation systems to multi-Cloud management platform Qvest.Cloud.
The Pixel Power architecture allows for the automated creation of VoD assets for catch-up channels, as well as the automated creation of trailers and promos.
Qvest.Cloud simplifies the implementation and management of fully virtualised architectures using best-of-breed products. By networking third-party applications into a single, integrated workflow in a multi-Cloud environment, it breaks down the barriers between on-premise installation and private and public Clouds.
“Qvest.Cloud from Qvest Media is an ideal environment for our virtualised approach to automation,” said Pixel Power CEO James Gilbert. “For many reasons, broadcasters are keen to adopt hybrid workflows that blend Cloud and on-premise hosting of fully integrated systems. That is precisely what Qvest.Cloud brings to the table: it means our clients can create their own bespoke workflows and use whichever Cloud providers deliver the right service for them.”
“Pixel Power playout and automation solutions are designed to take full benefit of the Cloud, and therefore fit perfectly in the Qvest.Cloud ecosystem,” added Qvest Media CTO Thomas Müller. “Our aim is to offer customers from the broadcast and media industry a platform that is scalable and cost-efficient, with proper ready-to-use packages and custom-tailored enterprise solutions.”
