ClearStory Announces Enterprise Media Services Platform

Nov 19, 2004


ClearStory Systems (formerly INSCI Corp.), a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, has announced the release of Radiant Enterprise Media Server (EMS), a media services platform that is designed to provide core functionality for managing the full range of enterprise content, from rich media to documents. Radiant EMS provides a foundation for developing solutions such as digital asset management, video management, document management, and marketing content management.

Built on a J2EE, service-oriented architecture (SOA), EMS aims to offer a modern, flexible and efficient platform for integrating enterprise content such as business documents, rich media, graphics, and other digital content into business workflows, processes, and applications. The first release of the product offers specialized functionality specific to managing rich media content.

Features of Radiant EMS include: Media integration management--Radiant EMS is built to support hundreds of file types, and its open framework readily supports new and evolving graphics, multimedia, and business document standards. Enterprise security--EMS provides control over content so sensitive materials can be distributed appropriately and the asset-level security model can be administered to manage privilege inheritance and access control. High volume data migration--EMS includes multiple ingestion options for large volumes of content, and improves time and accuracy of migrating content into new applications; capabilities include drop-folders, in-place cataloging, and drag and drop upload.

ClearStory Systems plans to release additional applications running on the EMS platform in early 2005, which will be available either as installed software or as a fully hosted ASP service. The Radiant Enterprise Media Server platform is certified for the BEA WebLogic and JBoss application servers and on the Oracle 9i database. The platform and software development kit is shipping immediately. EMS can be deployed as a stand-alone product or can be incorporated as part of an enterprise-wide content management strategy.
