North Plains Systems (NPS) announced that Onstream Media will license NPS's TeleScope application platform and, when integrated, will provide a suite of hosted digital asset management (DAM) services.
Onstream Media, formerly known as Visual Data, will integrate North Plains’ TeleScope application platform into its DAM services platform, which is used by motion picture studios, broadcast and post-production facilities, and media and entertainment companies to manage their digital media.
The solution will enable users to encode, log, index, store, collaborate, transcode, retrieve, and distribute rich media libraries of nearly unlimited size via an IP-based global network. It will be suitable for individual creators, work groups and enterprise class organizations and is available on a monthly subscription basis.
Onstream Media has contracted with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to provide security, availability and reliability to the Onstream Media Network. Security offerings will include advanced user authentication, permissible user controls, digital rights management, firewalls, VPNs, intrusion detection and network monitoring to support the most demanding customer requirements.
Customers have the option of deploying TeleScope Enterprise as a hosted service to manage their media archives, video libraries and eLearning initiatives on a local, national or global basis. The new ASP service will benefit these companies by reducing the cost of managing their digital assets in house, reducing technology investments and avoiding the need for redundant data management teams.
