Albuquerque – NM April 8, 2013
Cinnafilm announced it will be expanding its award-winning standards transcoding software, Tachyon, into Vidispine’s broad-reaching Media Asset Management (MAM) solution, providing users the ability to access Cinnafilm’s top shelf image processing conversion technology in a powerful digital management environment.
Vidispine serves as a framework or central repository for organizing different types of digital assets and manages a centralized workflow process across federated databases. The Vidispine MAM is completely software-based and includes built-in ingest and transcoding capabilities to handle many different standard formats.
Says Roger Kleckner, Vidispine VP of Sales for the Americas, “Vidispine is focused on providing a broadcast quality full functional MAM. Our clients now have a better way to accelerate their development efforts in delivering production systems. We see interfacing with Tachyon as a natural extension for us.”
“Tachyon is changing the delivery game in terms of high-grade, all file-based conversions – and in today’s chaotic delivery markets, automating a high quality solution is essential to ensure the end user gets their money’s worth. Who has time to go out to baseband for their imaging solutions – it is becoming simply impractical. Tachyon solves this dilemma once and for all,” says Lance Maurer, CEO for Cinnafilm, and continues “MAM system solutions are an integral part of the evolution we are helping to fuel. To us, every frame matters.”
