Las Vegas - NAB 2010(08 Apr 2010)

Anystream, the leading provider of automated multi-platform media publishing solutions, today announced four new initiatives for its Agility 2G platform for video pre-processing, encoding, delivery and reporting.

According to Anystream Director of Product Management Jim Duval, "These new initiatives remove many of the current obstacles to an integrated workflow by automating numerous time-consuming processes. This in turn increases efficiency, saves money and conserves resources. Agility 2G continues to evolve as the industry's most robust and efficient platform for multi-platform video content syndication."

In terms of content packaging and metadata processing, the "Avalon" extension to the Agility platform automates the packaging of both metadata and media to provide a cost effective, scalable, and automated process for delivering full content packages to a growing number of syndication outlets and platforms from a single video and metadata source. The Avalon extension addresses the challenges of adapting and transforming metadata to meet the specific requirements of each unique platform and distribution outlet.

Anystream will also demonstrate the ability of Agility 2G to manage the complexities of international content distribution. With a growing ecosystem of industry- leading technology partners, Agility 2G automation provides a seamless workflow that enables media companies to address the challenges of delivering content in any file based SD/HD world with hands-off operations and rapid turnaround. Highlighted components include virtual Agility 2G running on Amazon.com EC2; Agility 2G dynamic content editing to remove advertising breaks; Digital Vision standards conversion; Dolby audio processing for Dolby E, Dolby Pulse, and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound audio; Adobe Flash Rendering system for graphics overlay; and Softel for open and closed caption generation.
