Video software provider Synamedia will begin offering video on-demand workflow products from Telestream’s Vantage media processing platform.

Those products include Vantage Transcode Multiscreen, which automates multiscreen VOD workflows and reduces time needed for the encoding process. Synamedia is also offering Telestream Timed Text Flip for subtitle and caption editing, Vantage Array for scalability and redundancy, and Vantage Analysis for workflow decision-making and design.

Telestream’s products will sit alongside Synamedia’s existing portfolio that includes virtualized Digital Content Manager, which supports linear TV broadcast and live streaming, and enables live transcoding at multiple bit rates and in multiple formats.
