IP and IT have become a must in the broadcast market lately and the media workflow needs to become more and more agile and dynamic.
Contents are required from multiple viewing platforms, in a competitive scenario where it’s mandatory to have flexible and cost-effective architectures.
What is more flexible and scalable than a complete suite of virtualized services to manage all the processes from ingest to delivery?
SI Media provides an end-to-end solution starting from ingest and going through quality check, proxy generation and transcode to the desired format to any destination.
Always operating remotely, via Web interface, users can access the contents, search&browse, edit, insert them on bulletins (NRCS) and playlists (Traffic/BMS) by means of SI Media Web client.
A separated application allows to remotely control the player which is streaming a DVB-IP flow (usually an H-264) ready to be sent to the distribution service/department (multiplexer, teleport..).
With the generation of the as-run log, SI Media completes the end-to-end workflow on the Cloud. This solution allows deploying SI Media modules on 3rd party digital platforms.
Virtualized services mean reduced TCO’s, an increased capability to scale and change on the fly, allowing the customers to be more flexible and adaptive to the requests of the broadcast market.
Besides this, a workflow based on these premises, allows to easily build a cross-platform service, reaching more and more audiences and, consequently, optimizing the revenue of each content.
