Front Porch Digital and Telestream Unveil Transcoding as a Service

Usage-Based Vantage Transcoding Service in Private LYNX Cloud Is First to Provide Secure, Elastic, Media-Specific Transcoding

NEVADA CITY, Calif., and LAFAYETTE, Colo. — March 26, 2014 — Front Porch Digital, the global leader in cloud-based content storage management (CSM) solutions, and Telestream(R), the leading provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, today announced that the companies are collaborating to provide Transcode as a Service (TaaS). Telestream’s Vantage(R) transcode platform and Front Porch Digital’s LYNX(SM) cloud-based CSM platform are now combined to offer a new TaaS solution in a private cloud platform that includes pay-as-you-go transcoding services designed specifically for media operations.

“Customers who store their valuable assets in the LYNX private cloud have traditionally had to send those assets over IP to a public transcoding farm in order to complete that step, which not only opens them up to security breaches, but likely doesn’t meet their needs. We’re extending our long-standing partnership with Telestream to solve this real-world media challenge for our customers,” said Andy Hurt, VP of product management and marketing at Front Porch Digital. “Now, instead of having to rely on public resources, LYNX users can take advantage of secure, purpose-built, usage-based transcoding within the private LYNX cloud.”

The integrated solution gives both LYNX and Vantage customers secure elasticity in their transcoding capabilities.

“We are pleased to be extending our long-standing strategic relationship with Front Porch Digital, a leading archive management company that shares a common deep understanding of complex digital media environments,” said Paul Turner, VP of enterprise product management at Telestream. “This collaboration will give the most demanding media companies the perfect core technology for TaaS.”

The Front Porch Digital TaaS solution with Telestream Vantage transcoding will be available later this year.
