​Time USA Chooses Primestream MAM

Primestream’s Workflow Suite and Xchange MAM system is the basis of an integrated and unified platform for Time USA at its Bryant Park video production facility in New York City.

Chesapeake Systems, a Baltimore-based systems integrator specializing in MAM solutions, provided installation services and customized workflows for the deployment. Chesapeake supplied Primestream Xchange and Workflow Suite as part of the production company’s relocation to the new facility after a recent acquisition.

“In recent years, Time has been producing more and more video content to complement its renowned written news reporting and features. As such, Time has needed a more effective means of managing its ever-growing volume of digital video assets,” said Peter Price, director of solutions architecture, Chesapeake Systems. “With the move to the new production studio and professional broadcast control room, they were ready to take the next step on a state-of-the-art MAM solution. As the recognized leader in asset management and automation solutions for media production, Primestream offered the best all-in-one solution to meet Time’s requirements.”

The combination of Primestream Xchange and Workflow Suite delivers capabilities for both live video recording/ingest and postproduction asset management. Integrations with third-party transcode and archive technologies, including AWSAdobe Premiere, Telestream Vantage, and Quantum FlexTier storage, give Time’s teams a platform for managing video assets through production, postproduction, and distribution. The ability to download low-res proxy versions of assets empowers editors to work from remote locations.
