Video Technics, OASYS partner; commit to software, system integration

Video Technics in Atlanta, GA, and OASYS (formerly ON-AIR Systems) in London, have announced a joint marketing and development arrangement under which each company will promote and support the other’s product line worldwide.

Video Technics and OASYS have committed to fully integrating their software and systems. Together, the companies can offer a product portfolio consisting of ingest, asset management, editing, shared storage, archive, news and master control playout. Products from both companies are already highly compatible in that they run on the same unified hardware platform and use the same native codecs and file formats.

The underlying philosophy of the union is to consolidate collaborative production and playout systems for news and master control so they intelligently share core functionality. The terms of the arrangement include an investment in Video Technics by Brennington Investments, the owner of OASYS.
