(Cambridge, United Kingdom--May 7, 2014) At Broadcast Asia 2014 Cambridge Imaging Systems will present its world class cloud-based and software-based media management and publishing solutions, together with details of partnerships with key organisations that will help clients to build scalable, secure end-to-end workflows. The company will discuss these partnerships and present demonstrations of its Imagen and ImagenCloud systems at Broadcast Asia 2014 on Stand 5E2-05.

Tom Blake, Managing Director, Cambridge Imaging Systems, said, “Our new partnerships, combined with our affordable pricing structure, enable organisations of any size to structure their media logically, and provide secure access and fast delivery via a customized interface. We look forward to presenting these new workflows to our visitors at Broadcast Asia 2014.”

The partnerships bring together best-of-breed solutions that provide powerful integrated systems suitable for a wide variety of implementations:
  • Cambridge Imaging Systems’ Imagen Media Asset Management and Publishing system and Quantum’s StorNext 5 work together to create a powerful and collaborative solution that is ideal for broadcasters and production companies wishing to create their own VOD or catch-up TV service, and production teams requiring fast access to a shared media repository, either onsite or online via a YouTube-style interface.

  • The combination of FileCatalyst Direct point-to-point file transfer solution and Imagen is ideal for organisations such as news agencies wishing to quickly aggregate and publish video content from reporters based in remote locations, and broadcasters with multiple departments and satellite offices wishing to securely upload media to a central media asset management store.

  • By combining Imagen and Object Matrix’ highly secure MatrixStore plug-and-play storage solution, broadcasters and production companies can archive their digital assets and make them available quickly and easily for repurposing or revenue generation.

Cambridge Imaging Systems will demonstrate BoB, the shared online off-air TV and radio recording service that provides what is thought to be the world’s biggest catch-up TV service. This unique system, based on the Imagen platform, provides significant educational and research resources for the UK’s higher and further education sectors, with more than a million TV and radio programmes available.
