NAB Show Preview: ‘Unique Workflows and Processes’ From Telestream



Moving content from creation through distribution, while providing top-level monitoring and management, is a key desire of many media techies.

Telestream hopes its media workflow orchestration, media streaming and delivery technologies are a top choice for 2018 NAB Show attendees.

The Northern California-based technology company will be on hand at the April conference and expo in Las Vegas to show off its line of products.

“As processing and distribution of content in a multi-platform world becomes more complex, it has never been more important to create efficiencies through automaton and leverage the scalability of the cloud and virtualization to maximize revenue,” the company says.


Here is a review of what Telestream will be sharing with NAB Show attendees at booth SL3316:

Telestream iQ
New at NAB: an end-to-end quality assurance solution for multiscreen and OTT video streaming that reaches into the last mile of the adaptive bit rate (ABR) delivery network, monitoring mobile and Wi-Fi access points. Enhancements such as a simplified user interface (UI) and new workflow help users quickly pinpoint the location of quality issues, minimizing the time between detection and resolution. “It is now even easier to monitor and respond to issues at every location in the delivery chain,” Telestream says.


To be unveiled at NAB Show 2018 are two new cloud-based services for Wirecast, restreaming and ASR live captioning. Restreaming allows users to publish to multiple destinations from a single Wirecast upload stream, saving uplink bandwidth and compute power on the ground. ASR live captioning analyzes audio from your stream on-the-fly and embeds live captions in the output stream. Telestream will also demonstrate new Wirecast integrations with X-Keys and MIDI control surface interfaces.



New for Vantage, the Avid MediaCentral Monitor enables users to manage files in their Avid Interplay or MediaCentral | Production Management systems from within Vantage. Media Composer editors no longer need to spend time exporting sequences out of Media Composer for Vantage to utilize them.

Vantage workflow orchestration and media processing can run on-premises or in the cloud. With Elastic Domain, Vantage has new deployment and licensing options to support rapid scaling. New integration of the Pathfire Automation Connect Protocol allows for TrafficManager support of long form content, while Brightcove dynamic upload integration has been added for Vantage Social.


Lightspeed Live Capture

At NAB, visitors will be able to see the new easy-to-use web-based GUI and automation and propagation/insertion of metadata variables for any capture workflow. Avid Interplay/MediaCentral support, file segmentation and chunking, plus file-stitching for tape-based media are all supported in the latest version.
Lightspeed Live Stream
Now shipping with HDR support and CMAF packaging, as well as live digital caption encoding which helps avoid the complexity and costs of going to baseband when inserting digital captions.

Telestream Cloud

New at NAB 2018, Telestream Cloud services now include auto-transcription and file-based quality control in addition to the existing Flip transcoding and Workflow services.
