Telestream Lightspeed Live Capture and Vantage Open Workflows allows creative teams to begin working on a live capture feed delivered from a remote location (across the country or around the world) while the event is taking place, without waiting for the entire file to be first written to disk and then transferred. Transcoding, packaging, editing and other downstream workflows can start immediately, significantly shortening the production cycle and increasing the value of the produced content. The end-point can have a range of hosting environments, including centralised on-premises, private or public cloud and the streams can be written to multiple locations concurrently to aid in redundancy and business continuity, the company said.
“This industry-leading technology integration between Telestream and Aspera enables high-speed delivery of media content over the public, unmanaged internet,” said Paul Turner, vice president of Enterprise Products at Telestream. “The solution revolutionises how media companies can approach production, capture and post-production workflows by giving them more flexibility in the location of hardware, software and personnel.”
“Demand for live content delivery is exploding, as are expectations around the quality of the viewer experience,” added Mike Flathers, CTO of IBM Aspera. “Live video production teams have long been waiting for a cost-effective solution that would finally enable timely production workflows. We are excited about the possibilities Vantage powered by Aspera is opening up for event organisers and producers and content owners to connect with worldwide audiences in new innovative and immersive ways.”
