Because most of us come from a broadcasting background it we are more passionate in sharing the vision with many of our peers out there that broadcasting operations will quickly adopt virtualization as a core riverbed but we are more determined to make this vision a reality in our quest for effective, practical and mainstream applications that just do that and that is removing all the hardware that we relied upon for decades to help us carry out our daily operation tasks ranging from per-production to delivery and replace them with mere commodity information technology ‘IT’ appliances to enable applications delivery in multilayer and multi task fashion removing not only removing all the dependency to hardware defined solutions but also bringing about a broadcast specific desktop that has well integrated workflow.
The integration of multiple applications into a one or more interface is known in IT industry as Application Programming Interface ‘API’. Our efforts to continuously evolve could not be effective without us investing in and improving our know how in this niche skillset.
We meticulously scout out for impressive set of applications development that can improve any part of the cycle of broadcasting at the network, platform and/or instructions functionalities and always with the aim of simplifying and liberating operational challenges.
In doing so we eye out one desired outcomes and that is enable our clients with the ability to
fit relevant applications into existing workflows
create powerful, flexible and future-proof workflows from scratch
guide and support our customer throughout migration with training on installations at both the first and second levels
We appreciate that even considering adoption of such disruptive technologies will need a lot of guidance and support before everyone is on board trying it at least let alone adopting it. We encourage our potential customers for opportunities to carry out analysis to define measurable benefits and gains they expect and organizational / transformative change management they would expect to undergo and turn it into agreed success criteria as part of a Proof Of Concept ‘POC’ or trial. That we carry together and then review if it is worth the investment of resources.
Because we understand that one does not fit all we strive into maintaining redundancy both in the choices and depth of applications that we adopt as apart of our platform or indeed bespoke applications that our clients regularly request from us to help develop for them.
In the Broadcast operations from a single Desktop we have an array of applications that are successfully virtualized and simplified the operations of;
The entire operation of a typical multi camera operation such as
Media Asset management ‘MAM
Control & Monitoring (MCR)
Presentation, Transmission & Play-out
The entire suite of apps can be hosted locally on premises and remotely at our private cloud servers, at third party cloud providers such as AWS or Microsoft Azure, etc or indeed a combination of all of the above.
All applications can be hosted on any operating system ‘OS’ such as Microsoft Windows, Linux or Apple Mac or a combination of any with mobile applications across the three OSs .
The most highly enabler is all are provided in a single Desktop interface integrated with a variety of think client Video Device Interface ‘VDI’ and/or from any device
We work closely with application developers across the entire operation spectrum but indeed we see highest demand and immediate impact in collaborative applications that cross bridges in communications, sharing and exchanging content effectively and off course securely.
is an application that is natively cloud-based and is core purpose id for editorial and content creation, sharing and distribution, with delivery for live broadcast-quality video over Internet connections. It scales the use of offline and live video contents or any other content types over the cloud, and can be configured in numerous ways to meet the needs of any sized broadcasters.
The main Features are:
to strict CBR for extensive compatibility with Integrated Receiver-Decoders (IRDs)
One of the most collaborative applications is talkback. Moving from a standalone server that serves within a Local Area Network ‘LAN’ to a Wide Area Network based topology. This removes the locality and avail a global reach.
We have been working closely with our developing teams and partners to take the market offering and eventually avail a powerful yet simple to use interface to a set of applications that together connects to traditional legacy matrix-intercom based talkback servers and panels together and enable quick creation and definition of user groups who can maintain the same push to talk ‘PTT’ functionalities but on a much wider scale, a cloud based scale.
With this interface the need for hardware panels is removed or complemented with any connected screen device including IOS and Android tablets and phones enabling users to be online where they may be.
The interface not only connect different servers based in different locations together across Wide Area Networks but it also brings along Voice Over IP ‘VOIP’ which uses virtual layers such as Session Imitation Protocol ‘SIP’. This enables integrating traditional PABXs (telephone exchange) lines and IP-PBXs to enable making and receiving telephone calls through the intercom system which is used as 2-Wire or 4-Wire circuit connections.
Users are able to create unlimited number of new nodes on the virtual server and admonitor(s) can create multiple groups with their own administrator(s) and sets out relational matrix, rights and privileges for any of those groups.
The interface avails secure (fully AES encrypted) streaming media server with multi-channel video viewing in 2D, 360, and Virtual Reality
Social Media Publishing
In our quest to bring aboard a meticulous blend of applications that collectively address every functionality and flow requirements we have not deviated our focus from the need to integrate a fine yet comprehensive suite of business supporting applications in particular those aligned with the creative media.
Been a platform partner to developing giants such as Microsoft and Adobe hosted where we bring the entire suite of Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise Suite which includes;
Microsoft Office 365
Along with the most comprehensive suite from Microsoft our Desktop users benefit the most from the synergy of on premise hosting, private cloud hosting particularly of BGP where data is not desired to leave the boundaries of a particular country whether on think clients or mobile devices. We are able to leveraged using our premier network interface.
In addition to the core Office applications above more pre-customization by Microsoft is alos available throughout the desktop settings such as;
Similarly our desktop business tools will not be complete without Adobe applications suite ranging from creativity & design to content management.
We host enterprise grade suite of application grouped in;
Creativity & Design which includes
In addition to Adobe Acrobat Pro suite which includes;
– Acrobat DC with full PDF suite
– Export PDF to Word & Excel
– Adobe e-Sign
– Reader DC
Bespoke Business Applications
We continually test and qualify full suites of bespoke Customer Relations Management ‘CRM’ applications and data management and analytical applications which will greatly advantage business operations in typical broadcast environments.
Often our clients prefer applications that they have experience and affinity with and we gladly work with them to integrate these applications into their Desktop functionalities.
