Imagine Communications Adds Xenio Workflow Mgr.
Imagine Communications, a provider of software and networking solutions, today unveiled the Xenio workflow manager, a software engine that lets broadcasters and service providers design, deploy and manage customizable software-defined workflows.
“Xenio is a significant component of our Software-Defined Workflow road map, providing a framework that will serve as the underlying architecture for expanding Imagine Communications’ Enterprise Business Software, Playout Automation and Networking portfolio, while providing key workflow building blocks,” said Charlie Vogt, CEO of Imagine Communications. “Our software-defined approach allows media broadcast and service providers to change the workflow sequence, tasks, and timing on the fly with ease. This creates a more flexible development environment that will accelerate service velocity by enabling users to introduce new technology and service offerings, advancing their networks faster and smarter.”
The unique, modular Xenio architecture provides technologies as service-enabling components — from media functions like encoding and packaging to business-oriented functionality such as analytics and automated intelligence — enabling the incorporation of custom-developed functionality and integration of new technologies as they emerge and evolve.
According to the company, “with a flexible architecture and graphical design interface that allow precise control of which technologies are used in workflows, Xenio dynamically helps to ensure cost-effective, optimized resource utilization while helping to eliminate unnecessary workflow steps and streamline the path from proof-of-concept to deployment.”
