ATLANTA, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Encompass Digital Media, a global technology services company delivering end-to-end video solutions to broadcast and digital media companies, today announced the launch of its new innovative cloud-edge playout platform, ChannelReady™. Encompass' proprietary technology ensures secure, cost-effective channel playout that accelerates time to market, streamlines operating costs and maximizes revenue.
"We are excited to introduce ChannelReady, a cost-effective Channel-as-a-Service (CaaS) model, to our suite of playout products," states Chris Walters, Encompass CEO. "This technology significantly reduces the number of high-maintenance processes in an advanced production workflow to help networks run a leaner, more nimble operation."
ChannelReady's dedicated portal offers clients secure access to their channel data from anywhere in the world. The system is armed with business intelligence rules that simplify setup and delivery allowing a network to scale from one to hundreds of channels faster. The CaaS model dramatically reduces technology costs while simultaneously managing the resource processes. All steps from schedule conversion, as-run management and discrepancy reports are managed in an access portal allowing clients to prepare, manage and deliver simple content faster.
Due to regional demand, ChannelReady will debut in the Asia Pacific and EMEA markets; following the initial launch, the product will then expand globally.
