A key provider of digital media tools and workflow products has purchased an application used around the world by broadcasters, production companies and post houses to streamline content creation workflows.
Genstar Capital’s Telestream is buying ContentAgent from Vecima Networks.
ContentAgent is an application used around the world by top tier broadcasters, production companies and post houses to streamline content creation workflows, built to automate common tasks such as camera card ingest for editorial teams and creating file-based deliverables such as broadcast masters and viewing copies.
“ContentAgent has done very well in the production and post production markets and we intend to bolster continued development and utilize its strengths as we continue to expand into additional markets including creative agencies and corporate enterprises,” said Dan Castles, Telestream’s CEO.
ContentAgent contains a graphic user interface and benefits for those in field production and in the post production process.
The ContentAgent team, based primarily in the United Kingdom, will be fully integrated into the Telestream family.
Existing customers can expect to see additional resources being deployed to support ContentAgent around the world, Telestream says.
