N4225, NAB, Las Vegas: TMD, the leading provider of asset management systems for digital and physical assets, today announced that it has entered a technical and business alliance with leading automated playout solutions provider, BroadStream Solutions.
The companies will work together to jointly deliver integrated solutions to new and established customers worldwide. TMD’s well-established, flexible, and robust MAM system will complement BroadStream’s equally proven, flexible, and highly reliable OASYS integrated playout solution.
The alliance will debut at NAB Show 2016 in the form of a workflow demonstration, which will tightly integrate TMD’s cloud enabled Paragon+ Content Management solution within BroadStream’s OASYS playout platform. The demo will be available for demonstration on the BroadStream Booth N6315.
Paragon+ is powered by TMD’s fully virtualized Mediaflex®-UMS MAM platform, which delivers all the benefits of a service-oriented architecture, providing a simple and scalable software defined workflow orchestration approach to content management. Mediaflex-UMS’s virtualization means that it can run and scale flexibly as an on-premise, hybrid, or in-the-cloud system.
BroadStream’s OASYS delivers truly integrated and seamless playout from a single server to provide a highly resilient platform that is agile and fully scalable to meet the most demanding broadcast and channel requirements, from a simple channel-in-a-box to large, multi-channel solution. OASYS is used by broadcasters worldwide and is available in HD-SDI, SDI/IP Hybrid, and virtualized configurations for advanced playout in the cloud.
The integration of the Paragon+ and OASYS technologies will enable users to seamlessly search, select, and send content to a playlist without the need for external devices or processes.
TMD CEO Tony Taylor said, “BroadStream’s OASYS is renowned as a multipurpose, unified, content delivery platform that delivers truly integrated playout on a single server. We are thrilled to be working with such a world class company and to be able to add OASYS Playout to the list of Media Services available from our Mediaflex-UMS platform, I’ve no doubt that our combined MAM and playout solutions will be a prime driver in the move to intelligent, software defined automated workflows.”
BroadStream CEO Herbert Brenninkmeijer said, “TMD is the acknowledged leader in its service-oriented approach to content and workflow orchestration. Together we can create demonstrable operational efficiency through close integration. TMD is a great company to work with, and I am delighted that end-users will soon benefit from the best that our combined technologies have to offer.”
