TAG Video Systems, the provider of software-based IP end-to-end monitoring, deep probing, and real-time visualisation solutions, has announced a heightened level of integration with Skyline Communications’ Dataminer. The enhancement incorporates support for TAG’s Media Control System (MCS) seamlessly into Dataminer’s media management platform, increasing end-to-end visibility, automation, and control for users of TAG’s platform. This enhanced integration marks a major milestone in the long-term technology partnership between TAG and Skyline Communications, a leading global provider of end-to-end vendor and domain-agnostic digital transformation solutions for the ICT media and broadband industry.
Increased Visibility and Control
TAG’s MCS, a monitoring control and data aggregation engine, allows media companies and content owners to track signals and use an open-source paradigm to maximise visibility of their data and adjust operations for optimal growth and resource management. By seamlessly incorporating support for TAG’s MCS into Skyline’s DataMiner platform, deep and invaluable media health insights and management capabilities become available on Dataminer’s Dashboards and Apps, with alarms from both solutions visualised on the TAG advanced multiviewer display.
Automation and Orchestration
This integration adds a robust element of automation, control, and orchestration to the MCS’s capabilities. Providing a complete view of data and notifications aggregated by both Dataminer and TAG’s MCS in one place significantly simplifies day-to-day workflows. Operators now have simultaneous insight into the status of their infrastructure from Dataminer along with insight to the health of their content and live streams from TAG. This control and visibility into production and distribution workflows provides the data needed to keep systems running smoothly as businesses and services evolve.
Building a Solid Growth Strategy
“We are extremely happy to continue and strengthen our long-lasting relationship with TAG VS. Skyline has many years of experience integrating the MCM-9000 platform, now our users have the choice to interface directly with TAG’s new MCS flagship as a single point of integration,” said Thomas Gunkel, Market Director Broadcast at Skyline Communications. “This simplifies deployment, configuration and comes with new capabilities to manage large-scale TAG installations. Combined with DataMiner Dashboards and Apps, a user interface can be built tailored to specific requirements and support the workflows our users need.”
“The MCS has been transformational for our customers, delivering the tools they need to gain valuable insight into their systems and design a solid growth strategy,” said Michael Demb, VP Product Strategy at TAG. “Integrating the MCS with Dataminer elevates these capabilities to a new level, providing an all-inclusive assessment of operations in real-time that can keep users ahead of the technology curve, and allow them to position their businesses for growth.”
