MediaCityUK-based media services provider dock10 has announced a joint venture with Infostrada, the global media and technology provider formerly known as Parkpost, to deliver a “revolutionary” set of cloud-based production and distribution services to the UK media industry.
The services, which are available from today and will include remote content editing, media archiving and content ingest, are aimed at UK broadcasters, production companies and post facilities and are intended to minimise capital requirements.
They will be marketed by dock10 and are to include Infostrada’s CentralParq workflow and media asset management platform.
Mark Senior, CEO of dock10, said: “Industry bodies such as the Digital Production Partnership have highlighted the challenges and opportunities the industry faces in moving to a completely digital workflow.
“Our joint venture with Infostrada will deliver secure, practical production technology and help UK media companies become ever more efficient whilst reducing the overheads of managing digital media technology.”
Michiel Van Duijvendijk, CEO of Infostrada Broadcast Technology, added: “The infrastructure at MediaCityUK provides the perfect platform to deliver our innovative services to UK customers.
“Our extensive expertise in delivering cloud-based postproduction services and tapeless workflows will answer the rising demand for smarter, more efficient postproduction and distribution solutions.”
