TAG in the Cloud

Cloud Multiviewer

Moving to the cloud isn't a technical decision, it's a business decision.

It's about creating opportunity, streamlining operations and matching costs to consumption. What media companies have discovered is that legacy "lift & shift" solutions create roadblocks to achieving these objectives. Without being cost-optimized for the cloud, media companies have discovered that these legacy solutions are too expensive to operate, undermining their cloud initiatives. These systems lack the needed features to enable cloud workflows and lack the underlying cloud-native architecture that lets them scale to meet changing business requirements. Successfully migrating to the cloud means being able to leverage all of the cloud's potential to ride the next wave of opportunity and transform the way media is created and delivered.

TAG delivers monitoring for the cloud, with unrivalled agility, scale and cost optimization, enabling the workflows of tomorrow today.

101- The advantages, the challenges. The intro to the broadcast media industry in the cloud

Where is cloud technology today and is it ready for the complexity of broadcast media workflows?

Why is migrating to the cloud complicated and how can we make it easier?

Whitepaper- Optimizing Linear Media Processes for Cloud

This also examines two use cases that illustrate how the fully leveraging cloud capabilities can transform linear media operations. The first looks at how to redesign playout in the cloud for scale while reducing cloud costs to a fraction of the costs of lift and shift. The second use case examines how volumetric cameras and an esports production model could transform live sports production in the cloud.

The two main challenges of cloud live production implementations for work-from-home applications are getting the uncompressed sources to the cloud and delivering the Mosaic Output to the home.

The TAG platform supports JPEG-XS which can be used to deliver high-quality production content to the cloud where bandwidth limitations apply and can also provide the mosaic output as Zixi and/or HLS streams to be delivered to the home over the public Internet.

The TAG platform has an elaborated JSON API which can be used by custom user panels configured to control the System functionalities.

TAG Currently runs on AWS and Microsoft Azure
