Partnership Enables Secure, Real-Time Access, Processing and Distribution of Video for Both Intelligence and News Broadcast Purp.
LAS VEGAS, April 24 /PRNewswire/ — NAB 2006 Conference Booth #Sl1835 — DataPath, Inc., a global solution provider for mission-critical communications, and Konan Digital Inc., an innovative developer of media asset management solutions, have formed an OEM partnership that offers DataPath’s commercial and government customers an improved way to produce and manage high-quality video. The new DataPath Software Media Asset Management(TM) solution provides a more cost-effective, user-friendly and automated alternative to manual tape processes and older, cost-prohibitive video asset management systems.
DataPath will offer Konan media asset management software to commercial news broadcasting customers, and also plans to optimize and extend the solution to meet the requirements of both Department of Defense and Homeland Security customers.
“We can now expand the value of our communications networks to include digital media asset management,” said Stephen Lindeman, general manager of DataPath Software. “Without an effective way to speed and automate the processing of video assets, military, civilian government and news broadcast organizations lack the real-time capabilities they need to gain a decisive advantage or competitive edge. As a step forward, DataPath plans to adapt the Konan software to help the warfighter obtain, analyze and disseminate video to gain information superiority.”
