NBC Olympics, a division of NBC Sports Video Group, utilized Vantage and Lightspeed Server to provide file-based workflow orchestration during its coverage of the 2014 Sochi Winter Games.
“We used Vantage file-based standards conversion, transcoding, audio re-mapping, down mixing, closed captioning extraction, and more. The GPU-accelerated Lightspeed Server ensured that processes kept up with the rigorous live environment, and the workflow profiles allowed us the flexibility to configure process intelligence with each step.”
"The Vantage workflow is vital to our business. It lets us ingest and transcode multiple television shows at once, or cue a significant number of files to process overnight, which optimizes our multi-channel distribution."
"From the initial point of ingest, we rarely need to move a file now. Transcoding, captioning, metadata wrapping, and final distribution take place from the same Vantage interface. Who wouldn't want their content perfectly finished in a quarter the time?”
