York — Sept. 6th, 2017—Piksel today announced that it has launched a new product, Fuse Publisher, to allow broadcasters and service providers to consolidate complex digital supply chains when delivering broadcast and digital content.
Fuse Publisher invigorates the media supply chain, enabling broadcasters and content owners to deliver their content to the ever-increasing range of distributors and end points using automated processes while also distributing the metadata attached to that content. By reducing the reliance on manual processes, Fuse Publisher speeds delivery, lowers latency and reduces complexity and cost.
Fuse Publisher solves the problem of slow distribution of content from broadcast to digital platforms. It typically takes distributors far longer to process digital content due to the fact they have to rely on expensive manual operations. This process cannot scale efficiently enough to meet the huge volume of content that needs to be distributed across an increasing number of platforms. Fuse Publisher streamlines this process by simplifying the supply chain for broadcasters and content owners.
Clive Malcher, SVP Commercial at Piksel said: “The distribution of content from broadcast to digital platforms has been hamstringing providers for years. As consumers continue to watch more and more content from a wider range of services, broadcasters have battled to keep pace with their digital-first competitors. Fuse Publisher will allow broadcasters to streamline the process of getting broadcast and digital content out to consumers, saving costs and dramatically improving their offerings.”
Fuse Publisher is built using the Piksel Palette; a truly cloud native video platform built from the ground up using event driven and microservices architectural styles and a DevOps culture. This ensures flexibility and scalability without compromising availability or performance – challenges all too prevalent in traditional virtualized solutions.
Fuse Publisher utilizes cloud IP broadcast playout, un-restricted by legacy hardware, The solution is high speed and low latency, using automated pipelines and media processing to ensure broadcast content is rapidly delivered to a large number of distribution endpoints quickly. This enables broadcasters to move operations from on premise, hardware-based solutions, to a flexible, cloud model which can respond to markets trends in a more cost and time effective fashion.
