Imagine Communications Releases Landmark Express

Imagine Communications today announced the launch of Landmark™ Express, a suite of compact, efficient and cost-effective advertising sales, rights and scheduling solutions for small and mid-sized broadcasters. Available in two cloud-deployable modules, Landmark™ Rights & Scheduling Express and Landmark™ Sales Express harness the power behind the company’s award-winning and globally deployed Landmark portfolio to offer future-proof advertising sales, rights and scheduling capabilities with minimal IT resources and reduced total cost of ownership.

Landmark Express provides a modular, adaptable media business solution that meets the challenges of driving revenue, while managing increased workloads, multiple services and additional channels. Recognizing that small to mid-sized broadcasters have many of the same requirements as users of enterprise-level systems, Imagine Communications is providing customers access to well-integrated and proven modules including ad sales and campaigns, traffic, contracts, program planning, rights and scheduling with full-scale support services.  These modules are deployable without involving complex IT decision-making or incurring significant capital investments. Landmark Express also provides flexible deployment models via private or public clouds, or in customers’ on-premises operations centers.

“We have laser-like focus on investments in innovation and a product roadmap that enables cloud-virtualized solutions, which represent the future of our industry,” said Steve Reynolds CTO of Imagine Communications. “Landmark Express uses shared components of our world-class Landmark product family to allow customers to grow their businesses on their own timetable – for example, adding bundles to handle video on demand and advanced rights as required, without a complex install.

The Landmark Express portfolio features simplified configurations and standardized workflows, enabling the Landmark Rights & Scheduling Express and Landmark Sales Express solutions to be deployed together as a tightly integrated solution, or individually, to solve the ad sales, rights and scheduling needs of small to mid-sized broadcasters. The modular design allows for new services and functionality to be added over time, letting customers migrate or upgrade capabilities without changing underlying systems or architecture.

Landmark Express leverages the power and scalability of Microsoft Azure, Microsoft’s cloud platform, to reduce system administration and support requirements and provide greater agility, flexibility and cost-savings.

Imagine Communications Unveils Nexio Channelbrand with Animation Builder

Imagine Communications announced plans to unveil Nexio® Channelbrand™, a next-generation, multichannel branding platform, at IBC2014 in Amsterdam. Nexio Channelbrand is the first Imagine Communications offering to feature cross-platform animation builder capabilities, which enable an integrated approach to graphics template creation and allow for simplified and streamlined workflows from creation to air.

“Whether preparing content for playout, enhancing the on-air look or differentiating a brand, channel branding tools are an essential part of any broadcast operation,” said Tim Mendoza, Vice President of Product Development for Imagine Communications. “Nexio Channelbrand offers our customers a branding solution that capitalizes on the deep feature set and market-leading design of our award-winning Nexio product family, including a comprehensive set of software-based video codecs, advanced audio routing and a highly reliable architecture. With a flexible, software-based approach, Nexio Channelbrand enables our customers to automate their workflows, streamline daily operations and enhance creativity.”

Nexio Channelbrand provides multichannel branding from a single platform that can be deployed as a standalone solution, connected to a larger Nexio playout solution, or integrated with third-party control and automation systems. Available in two tiers of performance and channel density, the two-channel configuration offers advanced branding capabilities such as multiple live input switching, digital video effects (DVEs) and a virtually unlimited number of layers. The four-channel configuration model provides classic branding with a limited number of layers, and both models leverage full Nexio clip record/playback capability from either internal or external SAN-based storage.  Nexio Channelbrand also seamlessly integrates with Imagine Communications’ Landmark™ media software to enable the scheduling and selling of secondary graphical events such as bugs and crawls, potentially unlocking untapped revenue opportunity from advertisements.

Supporting both Nexio video server and Versio integrated channel playout solutions, the newly introduced animation builder module brings an integrated approach to graphics template creation. By leveraging native Adobe After Effects rendering, templates created by graphics professionals using Imagine Communications’ animation builder tools enable rapid customization without conversion prior to rendering — enabling streamlined workflows and minimizing interventions from creation to air.

Visit Imagine Communications at IBC2014 in Amsterdam at Stand 7.G20 to see first-hand demonstrations.

Imagine Communications Introduces Nexio Ingest Suite

Imagine Communications (@imagine_commstoday announced the introduction of Nexio Ingest Suite, a set of flexible software tools for managing content ingest and storage. When integrated with Imagine Communications’ innovative Nexio Studio Suite and market-leading Nexio video servers, the application enables users to more easily manage video assets that have been ingested and utilize them for live and studio-based production environments.

Media companies want to simplify their operations by ingesting video content into their facilities in a consistent and easy manner, but this often requires multiple systems to perform basic ingest and review tasks. Nexio Ingest Suite provides compelling tools to enable simplified baseband and file-based ingest as well as uploading material from XDCAM/P2 products, all from a single user interface. Based on standard IT architectures, customers can run the program on existing hardware, avoiding expensive technology investments.

“Nexio Ingest Suite and Nexio Studio Suite allow customers to efficiently manage the ingest and storage of content throughout their facilities,” said Huw Dymond, Product Line Manager at Imagine Communications. “Nexio Ingest Suite lets customers be more dynamic in their operations, such as file-based browsing and stitching services, dragging and dropping jobs throughout the timeline, amending or altering ingest, or scheduling recurring events. Unlike other options in the marketplace, we combine these key ingest and studio functions in a simplified user interface, enabling centralized video and metadata management as well as a seamless transition between legacy and next-generation software-based toolsets.”

Providing improved interoperability in live production environments, Nexio Ingest Suite and Nexio Studio Suite address workflow challenges with a common and easy to deploy combined toolset that transparently integrates with Nexio servers. These toolsets are compelling for customers looking to add file-based ingest to an existing system, or to expand their existing baseband toolsets with more advanced features.

Nexio Ingest Suite and Nexio Studio Suite will be demonstrated at IBC2014.  For more information and for a live demonstration of these offerings, visit Imagine Communications’ booth at IBC in Amsterdam at Stand 7.G20.
