Imagine Communications has unveiled Xenio workflow manager, an agile software engine that enables broadcasters and service providers to design, deploy and manage extensible, customisable software-defined workflows.
Imagine Communications, which was previously known as Harris Broadcast, said that Xenio provides a “future-proof foundation” that allows users to quickly adapt their workflows to capitalise on new service opportunities and simplify their management across the entire workflow environment.
“Xenio is a significant component of our Software-Defined Workflow roadmap, 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 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 seamless incorporation of custom-developed functionality and fast integration of new technologies as they emerge and evolve.
With a flexible architecture and graphical design interface that allow precise control of which technologies are used in workflows, Xenio helps to boost efficiency and eliminate unnecessary workflow steps.
