Telos Alliance and Grass Valley announced a partnership that they say brings integrated intercom to cloud production.
This news is primarily of interest in video production, but it may touch some radio broadcasters whose infrastructure overlaps with video work.
Grass Valley is releasing Telos Infinity VIP (Virtual Intercom Platform — shown) on its GV AMPP (Agile Media Processing Platform), an intercom offering for cloud-based media work.
“Infinity VIP on AMPP supports essential intercom functionality that is already well known to production professionals, including party lines, IFBs, groups and peer-to-peer communication,” the companies wrote in a joint announcement.
“This new cloud-based production functionality is being beta-tested by All Mobile Video (AMV) and will be live with an AMV customer later in the year.”
The announcement was made by Grass Valley CEO/President Tim Shoulders and Telos Alliance COO Scott Stiefel.
Telos said its Infinity VIP on AMPP cloud server and virtual panel apps are available from the AMPP app store and deploy in the same way as other AMPP applications.
Usage monitoring is consolidated with other AMPP applications to provide single billing.
