Accordent Joins Blue Coat Technology Integration Partner Program

Interoperability Enables Automated, Enterprise-Wide Video Delivery via Blue Coat ProxySG Appliances

El Segundo, CA(25 May 2010)

Accordent Technologies today announced that it has joined the Blue Coat Systems Technology Integration Partner (TIP) program to provide an interoperable enterprise-wide video delivery solution.  By combining the portal, video content management and rich media delivery capabilities of the award-winning Accordent Media Management System (AMMS) with Blue Coat ProxySG appliances, the interoperable solution automates and optimizes the delivery of video over the Wide Area Network (WAN).

Blue Coat ProxySG appliances utilize a combination of advanced caching and stream-splitting technologies to optimize the delivery of live, streaming and on-demand videos over the WAN.  When the Blue Coat ProxySG WAN optimization solution is combined with the AMMS, organizations can create, secure and manage online video-based assets and efficiently deliver them to the desktop. 

In addition, the partnership enables clients to use the AMMS Media Director as a single interface through which they can manage content and network resources. Via the AMMS Media Director console, clients can set Distribution Profiles to schedule, execute and route content.  

The AMMS Distribution Profile also enables clients to intelligently manage the lifecycle of content on Blue Coat ProxySG appliances via a three-tier retention management system that sets rules for expiring content sequentially at the edge server cache, the published library (viewable in the AMMS portal) and the AMMS database.

"The enterprise use of video as a training, marketing and sales tool is growing dramatically, highlighting the need for a solution that can create, manage and deliver video without compromising the performance of other business-critical applications," said Carrie Oakes, vice president of product marketing at Blue Coat Systems.  "The Blue Coat and Accordent solution provides our customers with a way to further realize the potential that video delivers to the enterprise."

"We are delighted to have completed the technology integration required to be named to the Blue Coat TIP program," said Mike Newman, CEO of Accordent Technologies. "This partnership gives our clients a powerful new option for deploying video behind the firewall," he said.

Accordent provides the industry's only automated, end-to-end infrastructure for creating, managing, delivering and measuring the effectiveness of video-based content.  The Accordent Media Management System is the first scalable video content management platform that enables content ingestion from any source, management of content regardless of format, metadata management and search of streaming content, and detailed viewership reporting across the enterprise. Accordent-manufactured rich media creation products include Accordent PresenterPRO, the Accordent Capture Station and Accordent Engage.
