Telestream, a provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, says it is extending its Vantage file-based video transcoding and workflow automation software to cloud-based environments.
Vantage Cloud makes it easy to run all the capabilities of Vantage, including automated transcoding, media processing, analysis and packaging, on cloud-based infrastructure, Telestream says. By unifying with on-premise systems, Vantage Cloud enables users to quickly respond to new formats, regulatory requirements and fluctuating workflow needs, the company says.
Vantage workflow automation and system management capabilities facilitate seamless interaction between on-premise and cloud-based systems, creating a unified hybrid environment, Telestream says.
“Vantage was built for scale and very large deployments. Vantage Cloud now allows users to run Vantage in an elastic, hosted environment,” says Barbara DeHart, Telestream’s vice president of marketing. “Vantage Cloud combines the exceptional quality, video processing and broad format support that Vantage offers with the pay-as-you-go pricing option that cloud-based services like AWS offer,” she says.
Vantage Cloud creates a secure workflow system that provisions Vantage transcoding software at hosted services, the company says. Vantage Cloud enables users to quickly and easily respond to peak demands, dynamically scaling their media processing workflows up and down as needed, without having to invest in additional hardware or software, the firm says.
