One of the unique challenges of video and media is integration of technologies, content and applications. Video conferencing doesn't talk to video studios; web-casting solutions don't deliver content the same as streaming solutions and live events need their own capture and distribution. AlanTechMedia can provide integration of all your media systems, allowing you build only one solution per need, share content across solutions, leverage and distribute all media content to all destinations. This not only leads to efficient and effective solutions, but also simplifies workflows, processes and technologies.
Media delivery is the last, but most important element of creating video content. Getting your media delivered and seen is key and often can be a road block due to issues with security, availability, streaming capabilities both internally and externally, delivery to users on all types of devices. AlanTechMedia can help you sort through the methods and systems needed and provide unified solutions to delivery all your content everywhere it needs to go.
Media systems go hand in hand with technology with the need for network bandwidth, Internet connections, SaaS applications, cloud use, media storage systems, streaming and processing servers. Developing IT systems for use in media in usually outside the IT groups expertise and is specific to hardware, software and media applications and solutions that you need to implement. AlanTechMedia can design, build and support technology systems that are needed for all your media and video processing.
