Cantemo announced today an API integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), featuring interoperability between Cantemo iconik and AWS Elemental MediaConvert.
Last month, NMR exhibited at BVE 2018 at the Excel in London. At our booth, we demoed Cantemo Portal and the new hybrid-cloud hub for managing video, iconik. Lots of visitors to our booth were interested in hearing more about the video (or artificial) intelligence capabilities of iconik, which enables users to identify and automatically tag video content upon ingestion with metadata capable of describing even minute objects and entities. This means that content ingested by the platform is highly discoverable.
Next week, the Cantemo team will be heading to Las Vegas for NAB 2018! NAB is one of the biggest shows in our calendar so we have a number of exciting things planned and will be announcing several new features and integrations.
This last year has been a bit of a whirlwind for Cantemo with launches, awards and tradeshows galore. Project Phoenix for ITV, a joint project with NMR, CodeMill, Pixel Power & Vidisipne, was shortlisted for an IBC Innovation Award and Cantemo Portal was nominated for a Streaming Media Readers’ Choice Award. We have also had business success at home, being nominated a Di Gasell company as one of Sweden’s fastest growing, and listed on Deloitte Sweden’s Technology Fast 50 list.
Video itself is one of the most powerful mediums of communication. Even since the time of black and white television sets, every evolution of video has seen the format boom in popularity, triggering further developments in tech and innovative uses of the format. Consider the modern media management sector, a whole ever-evolving industry built around the management of one thing: video assets.
As we near the end of 2017, it feels great to say Cantemo has yet again been recognised by Deloitte as one of Sweden’s fastest growing technology companies for the second year running!
If you have been following the news today, you may well have seen that our longstanding partner, Vidispine, has been acquired by Arvato Systems. Firstly, I would like to congratulate the Vidispine team. I have had the pleasure of working with them for a number of years and I know that this is the result of a lot of hard work and some great developments from them, which ultimately made Vidispine an extremely attractive proposition for Arvato.
