Content Management System

Combines Live or VOD metadata and library content with the ability to customize business workflows

The MediaKind Content Management System (CMS) is a platform product that combines Live or VOD metadata and content library with the ability to customize business workflows. These workflows ingest, process and distribute digital assets using any metadata format, any content type, and any workflow process at enterprise-level volumes.

Why Content Management System?

High Degree of Automation

As CMS runs as a centralized platform, users can easily view and manage information associated with content capture from multiple content providers, as well as transformation and delivery to multiple platforms in multiple content and metadata formats.

Among the critical differentiating features of CMS is the ability to accommodate any workflow desired by the customer and incorporate any third party product involved in content processing into that workflow. It is the flexible metadata plugin and adaptors framework that enable easy addition of both out-of-box and customer-specific customizations.

Transcoding and packaging capabilities are easily added via integration with either MediaKind Management Controller (Encoder On Demand, Packager) or many other third-party solutions. Together with MediaKind PRISMA, CMS manages ads and serves as a Creative Management component. On the distribution side, CMS is pre-integrated with multiple downstream platforms, both from MediaKind (Mediaroom, MediaFirst TV Platform, Video Storage and Processing Platform) and other third-party solutions.

Built as a clustered virtualized environment, CMS can be deployed either on-premise in a customer datacenter or in a private or public cloud (Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services). In addition, CMS leverages the latest IT technologies (Containers & Orchestration) to reduce infrastructure costs and achieve increased scalability.
