Piksel’s Improved MAM​ Is Cloud Native

Piksel has launched an upgraded version of its video content management software VCMS2, adding a cloud-native architecture and improving the user interface.

“We have been cautious and careful with the evolution of the features and functionalities of VCMS, always concerned with maintaining what our customers love so much about it,” explained Dr. Ralf Tillmann, Piksel’s CEO. “However, the power and scalability of public clouds, the incredible advantages of combining microservice architecture and a DevOps approach, leading to continuous deployment without service interruption, self-healing defect treatment and new interface technology allowing for the efficient integration of mobile applications are all aspects that we wanted to add to what is otherwise a much beloved product by many.”

VCMS2 is based on the Piksel Palette, a cloud native microservices architecture, coupled with new user experience intended to enable rapid content composition and distribution on virtually any device.

“We are certain that the new VCMS2 will allow us to do both, maintaining everything that our customers have enjoyed about VCMS while introducing state-of-the-art technology to create the best CMS in the world for publishers and broadcasters,” commented Stefano Valsecchi, Head of Product. “We have worked hard to get here and are now able to involve our customers in the final stage of the product development making sure that we can go to market with everything that our various customers in different markets look for.”
