CLOUD PLAYOUT & GRAPHICS
END-TO-END CLOUD-BASED BROADCAST
THE NEXT-GENERATION BROADCAST BUSINESS
Delivery and Distribution Unlimited
Clients can expand their distribution footprint as their business grows, there is no limit to the number of simultaneous IP outputs from the Evrideo cloud platform. Such restrictions in the PlayBox/ATHENSA servers are coming from using the limited local CPU and GPU resources for the ouput IP encoding.
Multi-Layer Interactive Graphics Excellence
The Spark service includes all the tools for upscale dynamic multi-layer graphics, including rule-based logic to streamline and automate the process.
On-Air in Hours
The time needed to setup a completely new Spark channel is just a few hours.
No CAPEX, just SaaS
Just a single monthly bill covers everything - the Athensa management software, the cloud storage, the in/out cloud data transfers, the distribution to viewing audiences.
Channel owners switching to cloud playout can substantially optimize their signal distribution expenses - direct ZiXi IP delivery is much more cost effective than satellite links and fiber optic lines. Other TCO savings include MCR rental expenses, electricity, redundant ISPs, on-site IT system administrators, etc.
Easy Upgrade Path
The upgrade path from the Spark service to the higher Athensa service offerings is clear and easy - adding Backup playout for redundancy, adding SCTE-35 triggers, more subtitle or audio tracks, VOD transcoding, etc.
Fully Remote Web Interface Operation
Web Browser access makes it very easy to learn and drive all Evrideo features. No more need to switch between different PlayBox/ATHENSA software modules - all Evrideo features are in the same Google Chrome browser window.
Ultimate Team Collaboration
The Athensa flexible user management system allows fluent team collaboration of geographically dispersed teams of people, working together on the creation of the same linear channel.
Outsource All Technical Complexities and Maintenance
Switching to the Athensa cloud platform allows you to have the luxury not to bother anymore about these annoying Windows10 upgrades, incorrect Decklink drivers, CPU speed limits, constant upgrades and maintenance needs of on-premises equipment. It is such a peace of mind to outsource all these to Evrideo.
No Strings Attached
The Service Orders and Playout Agreements of Athensa are typically 2-years, but the client has the option to go out of the agreement with a 30-days notice, should his business go down or he no longer needs the channel.
These case studies present different SPARK workflow scenarios.
