With the live production & streaming media market constantly facing new challenges, consumer viewing and listening habits are changing rapidly, forcing broadcasters to create, manipulate, manage and transmit rich media assets in entirely new ways. Piston Media Group takes on and understands the task of keeping up to date with ever changing technology, production & post production needs, and consumer demands.
More and more we are seeing new sources of acquisition hitting the market. From live streaming from handheld and sports cameras, smart phones, and tablet devices, to memory card and solid state drives on newer cameras, How much of this media is being transferred to local storage almost immediately to free up already needed space? This is the beginning of the “Tape-less Workflow” that is becoming more and more necessary, not to mention cost effective.
Notably is also the ongoing need for Shared Storage and LTO Archival Solutions. Personally I feel that one of the most important pieces to the “New Broadcast Workflow” is Asset Management. Broadcast corporations are now faced with the need to give more personnel more access to media assets and information in order to provide them with the capability to be creative and produce quality pieces in a timely manner, if not directly to air.
As much as the acquisition and media sources are changing, as well as challenging, so are the delivery variables and methods. Broadcast is no longer as easy as it’s name. To stay competitive, you now need to deliver to web, smart and tablet devices, podcast, social media, as well as broadcast radio and television. These media and technology hurdles will continue to grow as new formats continue to grow along with the adoption and growth of new technology.
Piston Media Group works with over 100 different product lines and manufactures covering everything from acquisition to delivery. It is our job as solutions architects to stay trained on latest developments and releases, case studies and deployments, and to continuously look for workflows that are not only efficient, but cost effective at the same time. Piston Media Group works with the manufactures, our engineering team, and you to help build out or improve your Newsroom or Editing Systems, Storage and/or Archiving Systems, Asset Management Solution(s), and Streaming Solution. We can also help with Individual or Facility Workflow Automation Solutions including project management, encoding, transcoding, quality control, and delivery.
