XEN:Pipeline is a new generation content management system that can process all types of files and metadata, from programme inception through to packaging and delivery. Supported by a fully flexible data schema, a powerful business logic layer, this highly automated system supports processing and transformation of all types of assets, files and metadata for delivery to any linear or non-linear location. It is unique on many fronts; the way it presents the association between the business hierarchy and its related files, the intuitive UI designed with simplicity in mind, the internal workflows optimised by AI and represented by a graphical representations of the throughput or the method in which it can discover files across globally diverse storage environments and present the results within a common namespace.

With the inclusion of “big data” handling, AI and Machine learning, content identification and minimal code sets these all ensure XEN:Pipeline is quite simply leading from the front...

XEN:Sim is the first of its kind in the market. Either deployed alongside XEN:Optima or as a stand-alone tool, this module helps clients to model and optimise existing or planned workflows or environments in order to identify bottlenecks, spare capacity, issues and opportunities. Virtual representations can be constructed for testing, evaluation and critically, optimisation.

Wonder why people are sitting around, why additional transcoders do not improve throughput? XEN:Sim can answer these questions……and more.

XEN:Transformer underpins the other modules but it also offered as a stand-alone, highly resilient, and crucially, media-centric Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). It is specifically written to automate robust, bidirectional transformation and exchange of data between in-house, cloud, hosted, or supplier systems. The product is mature, highly performant and able to scale.

Cost effective, highly flexible and simple to implement it offers an industry optimised feature rich alternative to the heavyweights.
