As a technological company, VSN is always looking to the future to innovate and develop its products to satisfy its clients’ needs. However, now that we are approaching the end of 2021, it’s a perfect moment to take a break on the road and look back to review all VSN’s achievements of this year. We present the 2021 highlights divided into two articles during this holiday season.
1. Valsoft Corporation acquires VSN
Valsoft Corporation announced in September the acquisition of VSN through its operative group, Aspire Software. This Montreal-based company specializes in the acquisition and long-term development of vertical market software businesses and entered into the Broadcast and Media vertical with this operation.
Therefore, by becoming part of an extensive portfolio of technology companies, VSN started a new stage of growth and opportunities, continuing with the road that began more than 30 years ago. Since September, the company has added more resources and possibilities to its products and solutions to consolidate as a market benchmark.
2. Consolidation of VSNWired: Spotlight
2021 should have been the year of returning to our normal activity, but the pandemic storm does not want to dissipate. The cancellation of NAB, IBC and other on-site events hit the Broadcast and Media industry for the second consecutive year. Once again, the industry had to look for alternatives to connect, strengthen commercial relationships, and continue exchanging ideas and opinions.
From the perspective of VSN, the company reinforced its virtual keynote event, VSNWired: Spotlight. Thanks to the support of the attendees, VSN held two sessions in 2021, one in April and another one in September. During these events, the company showcased its main releases and product updates, explaining at the same time success stories and overviewing the state of the market. Along with this, just a few days ago VSN held a 2022’s trends webinar with the keys for this new year for which we all wish to meet again in person.
3. RTVE and VSN shows the use of AI for catalog content analysis
VSN announced that RTVE, the main Spanish public broadcaster, trusted the company to develop a project for automated metadata creation of content from the network’s archive through AI tools. This initiative was presented during the FIAT/IFTA World Conference by RTVE and VSN teams.
RTVE put out to public tender a project to apply automated metadata using Artificial Intelligence to 11,000 hours of content from its Archive, including material produced by TVE in the 60s and 70s. VSN obtained the best rating and the project, thanks to the integration with both public and private Artificial Intelligence engines and the cloud deployment possibilities allowed by its MAM system, VSNExplorer MAM.
Therefore, VSN put all its capabilities and development in Artificial Intelligence at the service of a large company recognized in the industry such as RTVE. An initiative that highlights the innovative spirit of VSN and the advances achieved in a technological field that is a current trend and will remain to be in the following years.
4. Complete renovation of VSNExplorer Exchange
A constant in VSN’s activity is the development of its products and solutions. The entire renovation of the VSNExplorer suite content hub, VSNExplorer Exchange, is a good example of that.
With this new version, the solution allows creating and managing subscriptions to VSNExplorer PAM categories to automate file movement. Furthermore, VSNExplorer Exchange features a system of user permissions that allow the formation of hierarchies among the different profiles that access the system. This way, it secures that only the right users access the content. All this, with the possibility to follow all the file transfers from a single window in real-time, filtering their display in different parameters.
These are just a few examples of VSNExplorer Exchange functionalities, a state-of-the-art content hub that can be combined with a modern MAM system like VSNExplorer MAM. If you want to see how VSNExplorer Exchange works, feel free to request a demo or contact our team.
5. TTN partners with VSN for advanced automation of its Media Workflows
Thanks to the constant effort of the sales team and the development of its products, VSN had the chance to close new collaborations with big international enterprises like To The New (TTN).
TTN is a global provider of Digital Transformation and Product Engineering services with a strong focus on the Media & Entertainment industry. Its main headquarters are based in India and New York, but it counts with a professional team in different locations worldwide. The company contacted VSN searching for workflow automation for its media asset management and content distribution to digital platforms.
Previously, TTN was processing its media services workflows leveraging multiple platforms and tools. Thanks to the VSNExplorer suite, the company unified all these workflows under a single tool using VSNExplorer MAM and VSNExplorer BPM modules.
These five highlights are only the first part of the menu. We will come back the following week with the other five highlights to complete the best moments of VSN during 2021.
