make.tv “Live Video Cloud” integrates with Arvato Systems‘ “VPMS” Media Asset Management
- Arvato Systems extends “VPMS” Cloud capabilities
- make.tv’s Live Video Cloud brings live contributions to the Cloud
- Access make.tv cloud content from both “VPMS” Media Asset Management system and “EditMate” production system
Thanks to the new partnership with make.tv, Arvato Systems offers important benefits to their Enterprise MAM clients: Regardless of origin, make.tv ensures that all incoming streams are ingested into their scalable Cloud architecture. Streams can include contributions from users as well as journalists, and can have been made on anything from professional broadcast technology through to a smartphone.
Multiple inputs require intensive monitoring and, using the multi-view facility provided by make.tv, the editorial team can stay up-to-date with up to 12 live feeds at the same time. As the editorial teams curate incoming streams within the make.tv Cloud, bandwidth and storage are conserved. Content is immediately available in Arvato Systems’ “VPMS” Media Asset Management system and, using the latest “EditMate” features, high end remote editing is now a reality.
A live feed is more than a one-way information flow: selecting an input source in the Live Video Cloud makes it available for direct chat, voice or intercom communication – saving precious time and enabling real-time changes where needed.
Video streams are assigned directly to local broadcasting environments, live streaming destinations such as YouTube live, CDNs – as well as production systems such as “EditMate” or the “VPMS” MAM system. These target systems can then launch further workflows e.g. archiving. For “VPMS” users, the add-on is in the Cloud so no software installation is required – and its intuitive interface means no additional training either.
“We are delighted that Arvato Systems has decided to use our Live Video Cloud”, says Andreas Jacobi, CEO of make.tv. “With the integration of our Live Video Cloud, Arvato Systems is offering its customers many possibilities to quickly acquire, curate and ingest live content and recorded material.”
Stefan Eckardt, Head of Product & Presales Digital Media Management is delighted with the fruits of the new cooperation. “This partnership provides our major broadcast customers with a truly future-oriented production method and supports our current Cloud strategy. The journey that media content takes from recording to distribution has been shortened to an extent that is positively revolutionary.”
