SIC Online, the internet arm of the largest commercial television station in Portugal, SIC Television, assigned Telemak with task of designing, building and implementing a system that would automate the entire video encoding process and furthermore integrate this video content with the stations own content management system. Initially an encoding farm was designed by Telemak to automate the encoding process using AppleScript technology; video was then uploaded to the servers and simultaneously integrated into the customers content management system. During the live workflow Robocaster, a software developed by Telemak was used to manage this complex process.
Video that was produced by SIC television for broadcasting on to the television platform was repurposed by our encoding system for use on their Internet site (http://www.sic.pt). Online viewers could view audiovisual content on the customer's portal site in both a live and video on-demand capacity (in QuickTimeĈ and Windows Media!"). The video content on the Internet site was updated twice daily and up to seven days of video content was kept online on the database. Viewers were able to recall past video content and view at their discretion. This project remains operational to this day and Telemak continues to provide system monitoring and technical support.
Telemak is a capital partner to SIC Online as a consultant and has implemented our companies entire encoding system and workflow that we built together. We chose Telemak because of its knowledge in this area and it has proven to be a successful relationship. Miguel Madeira, CTO SIC Online.
