Atos moves its BNCS+ media solution to AWS
Paris (France) – September 12, 2022
Atos today announces a joint solution with Amazon Web Services (AWS) for BNCS+ (Broadcast Network Control System), a media workflow automation solution. As media companies go through their digital transformation, Atos BNCS+ allows them to transition gradually. Availability on the AWS Cloud and AWS Marketplace will allow media customers to take full advantage of this unique solution with ease.
Broadcasters face industry-wide transformation accelerated by the pandemic, such as the move to on-demand consumption, a proliferation of platforms and sources, fragmented audience tastes, the complex management of ownership and rights for different uses etc. They need support to manage their daily challenges through software-defined infrastructure with improved functionality, reduced downtime and a cost-effective strategy.
Atos’ BNCS+ is a key element of the media digital landscape with automated media workflows and secure management of content from multiple sources, locations and formats from studio content with mobile feeds to live and recorded segments. Truly hybrid, BNCS+ allows both on-premises and/or cloud operations simultaneously and enables customers to architect for optimal operations. For example, intensive 24/7 functions could be managed on-premise in parallel with other functions such as archiving, hosted in the cloud.
AWS provides purpose-built media and entertainment capabilities in the cloud by offering solutions to help customers transform Content Production, Media Supply Chain & Archive, Broadcast, Direct-to-Consumer & Streaming, and Data Science & Analytics.
