Telestream Acquires ContentAgent
Expands market presence into production, post production and additional new markets
Telestream®, a portfolio company of Genstar Capital and a leading provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, today announced the acquisition of ContentAgent from Vecima Networks. ContentAgent is an application used around the world by top tier broadcasters, production companies and post houses to streamline content creation workflows. ContentAgent 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 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,” commented Dan Castles, CEO of Telestream.
“We are very excited to be joining the Telestream family and are looking forward to seeing ContentAgent contribute to Telestream's continued growth,” said Owen Walker, Director, ContentAgent.
With its intuitive graphic user interface, ContentAgent streamlines media ingest making it easier to transition from field production to the post production process. It brings extensive 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.
