DayPort, a provider of video streaming, workflow infrastructure, and convergence technologies, has announced a new partnership with Quantel, a provider of production solutions to broadcast and content producing organizations. DayPort will integrate its Carbon suite of products including Web publishing Content Management tools, Production Workflow Solutions and Broadcast Content and Asset Management applications with the Quantel sQ Production and Playout solutions. DayPort applications are expected to complement Quantel solutions by providing an enhanced layer of integration, which enables the publishing of metadata and video content to a broadcaster's Web site or content delivery over IP to client users.
The combination of these tools is intended to provide additional functionality to all content production teams to view metadata content remotely over the Web or via their desktops. These tools enable staff to search, view, comment, and make editorial decisions relating to the archiving of content, online metadata and assets. DayPort will also provide the tools to allow one station to view another's assets within the same group and as a result share content over an enterprise wide operation without the manual overhead typically experienced.
