AMC Networks International relies on VSN for automated image management

VSNExplorer MAM, VSN’s media asset management system, was the system of choice for the creation of automated workflows that allow AMC Networks International Southern Europe to manage hundreds of content images for their OTT clients.

Automated workflows for + 25 pay TV channels

The solution finally included VSNExplorer MAM, which handles the import, conversion, processing and export of images to the different clients, for which it is necessary to manage the metadata associated with each image hosted in AMC Networks International Southern Europe’s system: program codes, clients, titles, episode numbers in the case of series, cast, broadcast license dates, etc. Of course, each type of content contains a series of specific fields and a specific relationship with its corresponding channel, series or season. On the other hand, process monitoring is carried out from another VSNExplorer component, Workflows viewer.


 “The implemented solution clearly increased our overall operational efficiency of VoD delivery.”

Through its integration with the local system, and despite the fact that VSN’s MAM is optimized for cataloging, previewing, editing, retrieving and archiving video content workflows, it was possible to adapt these types of workflows to the image formats required by AMC, which speaks in favor of VSN’s systems’ flexibility. More and more companies that need to carry out similar processes are resorting to external systems before even considering the possibility of their media asset management system being able to carry them out. 

“By integrating the BMS, VSN’s solution is automatically managing the artwork catalog and executing automated processes, such as selecting the images associated with the VoD delivery, burning images (if necessary), executing format adaptations and publishing the images according to predefined naming conventions. The implemented solution clearly increased our overall operational efficiency concerning the VOD delivery process” – José Nabais, CTO, AMC Networks International Southern Europe
