How it works

As the world of contemporary media continues to evolve at a rapid pace, it can be challenging for organizations to meet new requirements. Today’s solutions need to support the latest technologies as well as a variety of tools required to process content as it travels from acquisition to delivery. Providing support for the latest camera formats and the newest distribution systems is a moving target. Next generation media transformation and asset management solutions need to be flexible and easy to use.


Multiformat media transcoders must provide blistering performance and high-quality results, regardless of the format. Cantemo Portal and Telestream Vantage are perfectly attuned to these needs, and offer seamless integration to provide organizations with unparalleled results.

Why choose this combination

In Portal and Vantage, Cantemo and Telestream have created independently powerful tools. Both products were developed to be extensible and leverage different media processing and management technologies. Cantemo and Telestream recognized the greater potential that can be achieved by combining these tools. By playing to the core strengths of each of these products and assigning jobs accordingly, the sum becomes much greater than the parts. The Cantemo Transcoder Framework was developed specifically to enable this kind of in-depth integration and extend the power of Portal. While new customers will benefit from the ability to start small, customers with an established Vantage transcode cluster will be able to leverage their existing investment.
