Telestream has acquired ContentAgent, a tool used by production companies, post houses and broadcasters to streamline content creation workflows, from Vecima Networks. ContentAgent, formerly known as Root6, was built to automate common tasks such as camera card ingest for editorial teams and creating file-based deliverables such as broadcast masters and viewing copies.
ContentAgent streamlines media ingest, making it easier to transition from field production to post. It offers media processing efficiencies to anyone developing content for new media platforms and enterprise communications.
The ContentAgent team, based primarily in the UK, will be fully integrated into the Telestream family. Existing customers can expect to see additional resources being deployed to support ContentAgent around the world.
“ContentAgent has done very well in the production and post production markets, and we intend to bolster continued development and utilize its strengths as we continue to expand into additional markets, including creative agencies and corporate enterprises,” says Dan Castles, CEO of Telestream.
