Create Seamless Workflows with Cantemo® and Softron

Seamless integration between Cantemo Portal™ and Softron Record and Playout solutions ensures a seamless media workflow for all media content. It combines Cantemo’s extensible, future-proof, intelligent and easy-to-use Media Asset Management solution with Softron’s flexible software and hardware solutions for ingesting video as well as for live, 24/7 and automated playout.

Cantemo Portal and Softron combine to offer:

  • Seamless workflow for entire media lifecycle, from ingest, through management and editing, to playout.
  • Supports multiple versions to multiple destinations.
  • Seamless handling of metadata.

How it works

As the world of content continues to evolve, content owners and media creators are under increasing pressure to deliver that content to multiple platforms, often in a short timeframe. Of course, when broadcasting live events, that process from capture to playout has to be even more reliable.

With this combined solution, users can record multiple channels on one single Mac, to multiple destinations. The files are immediately available, as soon as you start recording. Files are also given initial metadata in the Softron Ingest solution and automatically ingested into Cantemo Portal for easy media management. From within Portal, users are able to add additional metadata, easily search and share media files with colleagues for review and/or approval, as well as editing media through integration with creative packages, such as Apple Final Cut Pro 7, Apple Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro.

The files can then be distributed from within Portal to be played by Softron’s Playout solution, either for a Live show in a simple playlist, or in a scheduled playout for 24/7 broadcast by a TV station.
