SPEED Selects Quicksilver Agility VOD Workstation

Motor sports cable network SPEED has deployed Anystream and SeaChange International's Quicksilver Agility VOD Workstation to simplify and accelerate production of its video-on-demand content.

"The Quicksilver Agility VOD Workstation lets us easily create new programs from existing material, enabling us to monetize assets in new ways and repackage existing segments for other distributors and platforms," said Kevin Annison, vice president of business development & operations at SPEED. "It's so versatile and user friendly that you don't need to be a highly trained editor to operate the system."

The QuickSilver Agility VOD Workstation integrates with conventional production systems and automates key workflow components to extract, enhance and transcode video for on-demand delivery. The system automatically ingests files from storage or editing workstations, marries them with metadata files, box art, promos and ads and then transforms them into CableLabs-compliant packages.

The QuickSilver Agility VOD Workstation is offered by SeaChange as a hardware and software system, and is marketed as software-only product by Anystream under the brand name Agility VOD.
