EditShare, the provider of collaboration, security, and intelligent storage solutions, is helping broadcasters and media companies increase remote content production output to meet growing programming demands with its EFS shared storage and FLOW media management solutions. Phillipine-based TV5, a subsidiary of telecommunications giant Philippine Long Distance Telephone company (PLDT), implemented EditShare’s collaborative solutions at its Reliance and Novaliches operations, leveraging FLOW’s smart workflow and cloud capabilities to automate more than 50 manual workflows and increase remote production content output by up to 40%.
“With the pandemic, many staff had to work from home and thus we were unable to create enough new program content for our own schedule and for our partner channel and networks. To fill the programming demands, we used EditShare to tap into our archives, repackage content and share programs with our sister channels. We were able to use FLOW to automate many tasks and work remotely without having to add resources or increase the team’s workload,” states Angelito R. Salazar Jr., head of post-production, TV5. “EditShare professional services was key in helping us design the automated workflows. They dug deep into our operation to understand the review, approval and delivery process, helping us create the best possible workflow design.”
TV5, one of three main broadcasters in the Philippines, is dedicated to creating and delivering news, sports and thematic programming for the Philippine community and beyond. EditShare’s end-to-end smart workflow solutions offered a secure network enabling the TV5 team to remotely access content and facilitate the often extensive review and approval process and share newly created program packages from existing archives across sites and partner channels.
“It is EditShare’s open platform and cloud innovation that enables our clients to adapt their workflows and reimagine their business operations” states Alan Dishington, vice president of sales for APAC, EditShare. “TV5 is a prime example of how customers are using EditShare’s solutions in a secure hybrid cloud to successfully facilitate and automate their remote productions while massively scaling content output all without increasing resources. It’s a winning technology combination that is helping business thrive.”
