Codemill announced to have been selected as custom development partner to assist German media company ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE in their media management modernisation project. The project, which will be delivered in four phases, is part of a larger infrastructure modernisation initiative. The company will replace its legacy MAM system with Cantemo Portal, which will become ProSiebenSat.1’s primary system for digital media management and distribution. Codemill’s familiarity with Cantemo Portal and its track record of executing projects of similar scope were key considerations in getting selected. The project involves the Swedish trio of Cantemo, Vidispine and Codemill and German company Dimensional.
Speaking on the development Rickard Lönneborg, CEO Codemill noted: “This project is our currently largest engagement into the German market and testimony of the work we have delivered to major broadcasters in Europe. It is our commitment to be perceived as specialists in video technology, workflow customisation and UX design for the media and entertainment industry. Our strong track record of delivering complex projects within content management and workflow customization to major broadcasters will help us provide ProSiebenSat.1 with a quality solution. We look forward to a continued association with them.”
The project divided into four phases, involves seven employees from Codemill with UX, workflow customization and Cantemo / Vidispine integration expertise. Phase one focuses on building the basic platform architecture and implementing distribution supply for Free TV. The second phase will focus on video transformation, and non-linear distribution to realize first end-2-end workflows. In the third phase, a few existing MAM and MAM-related systems will be migrated by more complex workflows in a step by step manner. The fourth and final phase will be focused on consolidation and conclusion of the project, which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2019.
