Telestream shortlisted for IABM Design & Innovation Award
Broadcast and digital media industry body recognises innovation and creativity from Telestream’s Vantage Camera Ingest option
Gloucestershire, UK and Nevada City, Calif., 24 August 2015 – Telestream®, the leading provider of video transcoding and workflow automation solutions, today announced that its new Camera Ingest option for Vantage has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Post Production category of the IABM Design & Innovation Awards. The awards will be casting the spotlight on new solutions or products that bring benefit or create new opportunities to the broadcast and media industry.
With more and more cameras, the volume of footage created during production has become unmanageable. Vantage Camera Ingest frees creative storytellers to focus on editing, instead of worrying about formats and manually finding, importing and creating string-outs of material for review. It allows hands-free batch ingest, processing and stitching of camera media together by timecode, or to create time-aligned media with inserted black for easy multi-camera synchronization.
"Camera media ingest can be a laborious and time-consuming process," explains John Pallett, Director of Product Marketing at Telestream. "Manually browsing and linking clips, importing, transcoding, time-aligning and stitching all take away from editing time. With the camera ingest option for Vantage, we have completely automated that process to create a powerful workflow that allows editors to focus on their skill without being encumbered by the mundane.”
Peter White, Chief Executive, IABM says: “We’re delighted to announce the shortlisted candidates in our nine categories and highlight these pioneering products and services. Overall, the number and quality of entries are truly indicative of the talent and creativity inherent in the industry today. And, as we transition through some significant change, innovation and forward thinking have never been more important.”
Shortlisted entries will be judged by a panel of independent specialists chaired by John Ive, Director of Business Development and Technology, IABM. Winners will be announced at the IABM reception and awards ceremony at IBC in Amsterdam on Saturday, 12 September at 18h30.For more information on the awards please visit: www.theiabm.org/designawards.
