The Media Supply Chain in the Cloud

CLOUD FOR MEDIA ASSET MANAGEMENT

Near-universal ‘Work From Home’ — including production and remote editing — has driven the need for virtualized cloud enablement and accessibility of Media Asset Management, Automation, and Orchestration. A cloud-based MAM decouples any dependencies from an on-prem solution, enabling elegant collaboration, timely Review & Approve, and new content alerts – and that’s just for starters! 

CLOUD FOR ACQUIRE & INGEST

What’s the best way to help your remote content creators ingest and share new content? Although shipping USB drives is shockingly still an option, using a cloud platform can facilitate a simple ‘drag & drop’ way to upload content. 

CLOUD FOR STORE & PROTECT

While on-premises infrastructure can certainly handle storing and protecting content, it can’t match cloud’s . Disaster Recovery capabilities. In addition, storing your low-res proxies in the cloud provides immediate access to your assets for a proxy-based editorial workflow. 

CLOUD FOR EDITORIAL

Proxy-based workflows detach you from the hi-res assets, thus opening up myriad options for ‘where’ you do your editorial – your laptop at home, remote desktop access to your corporate office, or even virtual workspaces spun up on-demand – all enabled by cloud!

CLOUD FOR TRANSCODE & DELIVER

With so many formats required throughout an asset’s lifecycle, transcoding often becomes the culprit behind delays. Cloud provides needed elasticity for transcoding bursts on either ingest or delivery to meet deadlines and overcome bottlenecks wherever they may pop up.

CLOUD FOR ARCHIVE & REPURPOSE

Cloud is a no-brainer for archive. But that’s far from the whole story! Ensuring easy access to a growing library of enriched material is essential in establishing a cloud archive that continually works for you – and proves its worth through repurposability.
