Playing off Anystream acquisition, Telestream launches expanded Vantage at NAB

A year after it rolled out digital video processing software platform Vantage at NAB, video encoding specialist Telestream is ready to launch its enterprise-level upgrade, the appropriately labeled Vantage Enterprise system management products.

Vantage Enterprise offers a high level of visibility and deep level of control for large-scale or mission-critical workflows, the company said, automating content ingest, video file interoperability, multi-channel distribution, and other video production workflows for content owners and creators, broadcast, cable and new media companies.

The company said VE is the "first major development to evolve from our acquisition of Anystream last year which brought together the best of both companies," said VP of marketing at Telestream Barbara DeHart. "Vantage now combines Anystream's proven expertise in large-scale media production and system management with Telestream's market-leading video transcoding and workflow products to enable companies to capture new markets and optimize video content value."

Telestream acquired Anystream, a decade-old company that developed enterprise-class transcoding and management platforms to some 600 global companies, in September from Grab Networks.

At the time, Telestream CEO Dan Castles called the deal "very synergistic and truly a win-win for customers, employees, and partners alike."

"Anystream's customer base will benefit not only from Telestream's broad end-to-end digital media tools and workflow solutions, but also from its strategic focus on transcoding," Castles said.
