Bannister Lake Announces Integration of MAM with Zeus Digital Media Storage and Playout

By supporting third-party MAM integration, Bannister Lakes’ Zeus can now support advanced search capability as well as playlist creation.

Bannister Lake announces that its browser-based media storage and playout solution, Zeus, can be fully integrated with popular media asset management (MAM) systems. With minimal customization the Zeus solution can access content within a MAM and still take full advantage of Zeus' impressive search features and its convenient drag and drop playlist and sequence building capabilities.

Zeus features a centralized asset management structure that allows multiple users to access the system simultaneously, while keeping the overall system consistently synchronized. This dramatically speeds production workflow and provides a production team with full access to the system's capabilities. Producers are able to use their web browsers to access Zeus and build shows or content sequences offline saving valuable studio production time. An intuitive UI lets users import folders and conveniently move assets into the appropriate output frame buffer.

Zeus supports up to 4 SDI (HD/SD) channels as well as NDI and also supports the ability to record incoming video, making it an ideal solution for productions that require a high number of images and video clips that need to be turned around quickly in a fast-paced and unpredictable environment. Home shopping channels, and news, entertainment, and sports productions are typical use cases.
