Xstream Launches new Ingest Service [PR]

Xstream Launches new Ingest Service [PR] | The Machinimatographer | Scoop.it
One of the biggest challenges within the OTT and TV Everywhere space today is how to ensure a simple ingest workflow when importing media assets from various content providers. For many service providers with a large media assets library, the ingest workflow can be a major headache with different processes for dealing with multiple video input formats, metadata formats, subtitle formats, applying DRM encryption and transcoding for multiple platforms.

In order to meet these challenges Xstream is now launching a new 'Ingest Service' that greatly simplifies the ingest of media assets and offers a completely transparent process to fit into any media rollout. Additionally, the Ingest Service collects content from multiple sources with ease with a minimum of human resources needed, enabling customers to reduce time spent on setting up ingest workflows, decrease time to market and scale their offerings faster, better and wider than ever before.

Using business process management to succeed in a world of TV everywhere : Popular IT methods and SOA can benefit broadcasters

Using business process management to succeed in a world of TV everywhere : Popular IT methods and SOA can benefit broadcasters | The Machinimatographer | Scoop.it

What has business process management got to do with broadcasting? Surely, it is more relevant to a manufacturing operation; broadcasting is a creative business, isn’t it? Sure, production is creative, but to an outsider, broadcasting operations are much like manufacturing. Raw materials — the program tape or file — arrive from the production company, and at the other end, the broadcaster delivers programs to the viewer.

 

Through all the many processes, the program has been formatted for the viewer’s television, tablet or smartphone, and any necessary subtitles, captions or dubbed audio have been added to the program. The channel schedule has been delivered to the third-party listings guides with information about each program, and the promotions department may also have created trailers for the program.

 

Is this not a manufacturing operation, a media factory?

 

Over the last decade, many verticals outside the media-and-entertainment sector have moved to a software architecture where the processes are managed as a whole, rather than using islands of software to process the product. This holistic management of business processes potentially offers a more efficient way to command, control and optimize media operations.
