We are joined by Claudio Lisman, President & CEO at Primestream to discuss how the coronavirus pandemic has fundamentally changed drivers in the market and how this is influencing the way Primestream operate.
Claudio also tells us how these changes will effect them in the long-term and what developments, trends and technologies they are working on and what problems they will solve.
DAM, MAM, PAM…maybe you’ve heard these terms pop up in everyday business jargon. But have you ever stopped to think about what they stand for?
Many times, they are used interchangeably, causing confusion among even those who use these platforms on a daily basis. Whether you’re a Marketing or Media Asset Manager, CTO, Video Producer, Documentalist, etc. it’s hard to keep up with constantly evolving media asset management platforms and technologies.
The evolution from baseband to IP turned into a revolution in 2020, as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic forced the streaming and broadcast industries to double down on remote production workflows and technologies. With studios shuttered, broadcast operations centers empty, and OBS trucks parked, video technology companies and producers have turned to IP-based production like never before, embracing its efficiency, flexibility, and ability to cost-effectively meet rapidly changing requirements.
Storage Architecture for MAM and Archive
The growth of more sophisticated, lower cost and less complex asset managers especially platforms dealing with remote users, has driven confusion as to where and how proxy and raw content should be stored and maintained. We will offer good suggestions for dealing with these concerns.
MAM, Edit, Transcode, Color, Audio, Archive, Ingest and Delivery.
It may seem like an easy task, but understanding how data loads are balanced can greatly improve performance and reliability. We will discuss real world example of these.
Success with video doesn’t come from choosing a mystical single best-of-breed MAM, Edit Suite, Live Switcher, DAM – or any other system.
Instead, it comes with being able to easily orchestrate human, semi-automated and automated workflows among these systems, and others that will inevitably emerge.

Meta enables customers to store identification, editorial, technical, rights, discovery and AI-generated content metadata for media and entertainment catalogues. It also stores additional metadata assets like images and videos that are required to complete a dynamic and compelling user experience. The VOD explosion highlights the fact that historically distinct metadata types have been managed in fragmentary ways. The volume of AI generated metadata simply compounds the problem. Meta takes the logical & elegant step of storing all types of content metadata side-by-side, in a platform optimised for performance.
