Imagine Communications Introduces Xenio Workflow Manager
By Deepika Mala
Imagine Communications, a major player of enterprise business software, playout automation and networking solutions, recently introduced an agile software engine, called the Xenio workflow manager.
The new Xenio workflow manager helps broadcasters and service providers to design, deploy and manage extensible, customizable software-defined workflows.
Officials said that the engine also offers a future-proof foundation that allows users to quickly adapt workflows to capitalize on new service opportunities and simplify their management.
The leading edge capabilities of Xenio are based on advanced software principles and technologies that integrate naturally with the customers’ IT systems and business processes.
“Xenio is a significant component of our Software-Defined Workflow roadmap, providing a framework that will serve as the underlying architecture for expanding Imagine Communications’ Enterprise Business Software, Playout Automation and Networking portfolio, while providing key workflow building blocks,” said Charlie Vogt (News - Alert), CEO of Imagine Communications, in a press statement.
The software-defined approach of Xenio allows media broadcast and service providers to change the workflow sequence, tasks, and timing on the fly with ease.
A more flexible development environment is created that will help accelerate service velocity by allowing users to launch new technology and service offerings, advancing networks faster and smarter.
With unique, modular architecture, Xenio provides technologies as service-enabling components, from media functions like encoding and packaging to business-oriented functionality. This helps enable seamless incorporation of custom-developed functionality and fast integration of new technologies as they emerge and evolve.
Brick Eksten, VP of Product Development for Xenio at Imagine Communications, said: “Adopting Xenio to power an increasing array of workflow processes will provide our customers with all of the cost reduction and operational benefits of a standardized platform while streamlining workflow design and implementation. We look forward to working with customers and partners to build on this next generation of agile workflow management.”
