Part of ITV Studios
Faced with handling a rapidly growing volume of media across its sites, while working with an outdated, labor-intensive and inefficient infrastructure, ITV Studios Norway was quick to see the benefits of the Avid MediaCentral Platform. Remote collaboration has enabled production, editorial and engineering teams dispersed across the region to easily work together in real time to create, manage and distribute compelling content. By centralizing its content management workflow, the company can more efficiently and cost effectively manage its production pipeline. And automating existing manual ingest and transcoding processes has further reduced operating costs.
"Our first priority is to create compelling and entertaining content to help our clients attract and retain audiences. But we were spending too many man-hours performing mundane tasks, and couldn't access and manage our content easily, which led to production inefficiencies," said Jon Sverre Høiden, COO of ITV Studios Norway. "By investing in Avid Everywhere and getting on the platform, we now benefit from a tightly integrated, open, end-to-end workflow that has vastly improved our operational processes and productivity."
"The TV entertainment space is hugely competitive, so the fast turnaround of content is key to a media company's success," said
The workflow, installed by local Avid partner VideoUtstyr, comprises solutions from the Avid Media, Avid Artist and Avid Storage Suites. Centered on the Interplay® | Production Facility Package, ITV Studios Nordic benefits from Interplay® | Production asset management and remote workflow capabilities, including Avid MediaCentral | UX and Media Composer® | Cloud.
