Telestream Unveils Vantage 2.0
Telestream, which makes tools for live and on-demand video, as well as workflow solutions, announced the release of Vantage 2.0 today, the latest release for its enterprise-class design and automation software. Vantage combines video capture, transcoding, analysis, metadata processing, delivery, and file management into one unified framework.
This latest release includes Vantage Workflow Portal, a new feature that enables fast creation of operator user interfaces for browsing video, entering metadata, and forwarding media.
Users will also get a new SDK (software development kit), for accessing and controlling Vantage workflows. Vantage also now integrates with GraphicsFactory, so that template-based layered graphics and audio can be applied during a transcode.
Vantage was first released last spring, and has already found a following with major media and entertainment companies around the world. Outdoor Channel, for example, an outdoor television company, uses Vantage to quickly deliver any type of file to its domestic and international audiences.
"Vantage, with its easy-to-use workflow, graphical user interface, and ability to process multiple transcodes at a much faster rate, provides the processing capabilities we needed to support digital workflows across all of our departments. The redundant, dual-server configuration gives us peace-of-mind, knowing that we have a fail-safe solution that will not suffer any delays in our various workflows," says Paul Weaver, vice president of operations at Outdoor Channel.
The webcasting production software now comes in standard and Pro versions.
