Stream Station and Viking Enterprise Solutions Join Forces to Deliver Radically Different Media/Entertainment Workflows
Video Transmission Leaders to Showcase Storage Solution that Protects Content, Controls Costs at NAB
LAS VEGAS, April 20, 2022 – Next week at the 2022 NAB Show, Stream Station will be on hand to highlight an all-new workflow option for the broadcast industry. Stream Station and Viking Enterprise Solutions (VES) are teaming up to bring flexibility, content control and predictable costs to VOD and broadcast workflows.
Leveraging its years of experience helping customers in the broadcast production industry and building media networks, Stream Station identified VES’s Cloud Native Obsidian (CNO) as a critical addition to its wide array of options for content development and management. Media and entertainment professionals are looking for an easy-to-use storage implementation to answer the challenges created by massive amounts of unstructured data, content control and compliance requirements, and increasing recurrent cloud storage costs. Enter CNO, an economical, flexible storage alternative to public cloud solutions that provides on-premise, complete control of mission-critical, frequently accessed data.
“Certain applications simply can’t be connected to the public cloud – and CNO is the perfect alternative,” noted Chip Pettit, president of Stream Station Inc. “CNO is the solution that content owners we deal with on a daily basis have been asking us for, as they can now completely control their own content and decide where it gets replicated. CNO has also given us the ability to provide our customers with transparent pricing that fits their budget for cloud storage, with all of the reliability of a large public cloud provider. This is great news for a large segment of broadcasters, including corporate, sports, news and nonprofits.”
“CNO was specifically designed as an attractive, more secure all-in-one solution that delivers cloud benefits on-premise,” said Mark DeVincent, SVP and GM, Viking Enterprise Solutions. “VES has built platforms for some of the most respected enterprise companies and cloud providers in the world. Stream Station has helped customers deliver the biggest sporting and entertainment events – making this a very synergistic partnership. Together with Stream Station, we are radically changing workflows for those that need VOD storage. We look forward to collaborating further with Stream Station as they scale their offering.”
CNO demos will be conducted in Stream Station’s booth #W6124 on the NAB show floor, and will focus on using the device to sync to cloud S3-compliant storage. Stream Station will demonstrate how that stored data can then be delivered to a mobile device.
