If you’re an active user of LinkedIn like I am, you may have already come across this great post from Jonathan Applebaum of AMC Networks, which breaks down how “HeisenViewer” – AMC’s FileMaker Pro database – is used to preview and quality control full-resolution assets before they are committed to a MAM environment.
Of course, what you may have also realized is that this is a very public endorsement of our Vantage and GLIM technologies, which are being leveraged across cloud and on-premise environments to help power HeisenViewer, which is fantastic to see!
Supporting customers embodies what Telestream is all about. We are entrenched in their operations and make sure we play a significant part in transforming their business by testing and integrating our solutions within their systems. Ultimately, we are the enablers in helping our customers realize their business future.
Achieving workflow efficiencies
Our technologies also play a fundamental role in achieving workflow efficiencies. AMC has designed HeisenViewer to be able to scan a virtually unlimited number of network shares or directories and build a database of all contents. Thanks to Vantage, every media file it receives is then identified for its technical metadata and segment break analysis, of which the results are then seamlessly linked to the media files.
The powerful GLIM engine then takes on the responsibility for dynamically encoding media on-the-fly, starting whenever a remote user hits the ‘play’ button and stopping whenever they hit ‘stop.’ For HeisenViewer, GLIM provides quick verification of the accuracy of all segmentation data, allowing the user to add/edit/delete as required.
Whether on-premise, the cloud, or a mix of both for a hybrid option, Telestream’s solutions are designed to ensure customers receive the right results with the value they expect and at the pace they need to succeed. Throughout our history, we have focused on supporting and on-ramping our customers at any stage of their media journey – from content creation and production to distribution and monetization.
Ultimately, our products are the right choice for companies deploying across any cloud or on-premise environment, designed specifically to the tune of what our customers want and need. We’re proud that our Vantage and GLIM technologies have been integrated within HeisenViewer, yet another example of how the two products can simplify workflow processes and transform our customers’ operations.
