Bannister Lake has just announced that its browser-based media storage and playout solution, Zeus, can be integrated with media asset management (MAM) systems. According to the press release, “With minimal customization the Zeus solution can access content within a MAM and still take full advantage of Zeus’ impressive search features and its convenient drag and drop playlist and sequence building capabilities”.
Zeus is usually deployed for home shopping channels and news, entertainment and sports productions. It adapts to productions that require a high number of images and video clips in a fast and unpredictable environment. The software supports up to 4 SDI (HD/SD) and NDI, and can record incoming video.
Bannister Lake’s solution also features a centralized asset management structure that allows users to access the system at the same time, which speeds up the production workflow. “Producers are able to use their web browsers to access Zeus and build shows or content sequences offline saving valuable studio production time. An intuitive UI lets users import folders and conveniently move assets into the appropriate output framebuffer” says Bannister Lake.
George Hentsch, president of Bannister Lake: “Productions that depend on a very large number of clips and images and need to access them extremely quickly require a solution that complements their workflows. Zeus has the functionality to achieve this and with MAM integration the product is even stronger.”
