Third Summit Joins Arvato’s Vidispine Partner Network

Third Summit, described as a collective of full-stack digital media solutions, launches Alteon media platform based on Vidispine technology

Third Summit has used the Vidispine VidiCore media management backend to build its new SaaS platform, Alteon.

Alteon is presented as a production ecosystem that makes it easier for brands, agencies, influencers and creatives to work together. It leverages AI and cloud technology to allow users to collaborate seamlessly, handle payments faster and find work more easily. It features: Alteon Community, a production coordinator and talent marketplace; Alteon Cloud, a digital content manager; and the payments system Alteon Pay, all of which are accessible from one central platform.

“Our partnership with Third Summit has allowed them to achieve a low-cost point of entry for a multi-tenant environment via the use of our advanced API created specifically for the post production industry,” says Erik Ahlin, who is responsible for the partnership on the Arvato Systems Vidispine team. “We developed VidiCore specifically to allow clients to rapidly prototype and bring products to market to make the most of the opportunities in front of them.”

“By leveraging Arvato Systems’ proven Vidispine technology, we've been able to focus on building out a robust cloud platform with multiple useful tools for production professionals, while being confident in the security and structure at its core,” says Matt Cimaglia, co-founder of Third Summit. “The result is a true SaaS platform that can reduce the friction in workflows for freelancers, independent creators, social media influencers and small/mid-sized agencies, few of whom have access to the best tools available in the industry. Alteon Cloud is changing that, so content creators can focus on doing the work they love.”

The Vidispine team enabled Third Summit to create a system that encompasses the media supply chain for the central Alteon Cloud solution. The VidiCore service provides a state-of-the-art media management backend, separating the communication layer from the user interface and providing a developer platform that can operate completely independently of on-prem or cloud environments. Its flexibility also allows Alteon Cloud to be fast and scalable for media development teams.

“For Alteon users, the end product dramatically overhauls workflow processes, giving them secure, cost-efficient and easy-to-use access to powerful digital tools,” says Ahlin. “Using VidiCore also allowed Third Summit to bring its solution to market significantly faster.”
