Telestream is taking its Vantage media-processing platform into the Cloud with the launch of Vantage Cloud Port.
The solution, which will be officially launched at NAB, is in response to customer requests for a Cloud-based system, according to Telestream’s marketing director Ken Haren.
Telestream wants to offer customers a “follow your media” workflow according to Haren.
Vantage Cloud Port allows Cloud execution of Vantage processing actions using containerised micro-services with engines identical to on-prem services. These modular, orchestrated building blocks can optimise both brownfield and greenfield deployments. Telestream said any existing or new Vantage installation can transfer specific processes to/from their Cloud provider of choice. Existing Vantage users also gain access to Cloud-capable actions even if those actions are unlicensed in their on-premises Vantage system.
Speaking to the media at BVE, Telestream also announced plans to unveil OptiQ, its Cloud-based channel-creation system, previously known as Project Orchid.
OptiQ is a SaaS one-click channel-creation solution that allows organisations to leverage public and private Cloud, as well as on-premises virtualised infrastructures.
“OptiQ is a merging of the entire Telestream skill set around live streaming, workflow, Cloud, integrated monitoring, containers and much more,” said Scott Puopolo, CEO at Telestream. “It is an ambitious project and the intention is that the initial release will be a SaaS offering so we can rapidly evolve the solution in the early pilots and fine-tune it before committing to an on-premise offering.”
OptiQ will also make its debut at NAB.
