Ross Video announced that Streamline, their new media asset management solution for graphics, is now available for general release.

Ross Logo_Red“I am so incredibly proud of what our talented team here has accomplished in developing Streamline,” said Shawn Snider, Marketing Product Manager for Ross Video. “I am especially excited for our customers and early adopters as we’ve crafted a beautiful and easy-to-use solution that dramatically simplifies asset management for graphics, and provides a powerful set of tools for any broadcaster to better manage their workflows.”

Streamline is the next generation of asset management. Built on top of the Ross Video web technology platform,Streamline is a web-based software product that integrates seamlessly with the Ross XPression graphics system, and allows users to attach assets to graphic templates via a simple drag and drop workflow. The software also offers a rich variety of asset metadata allowing users to easily organize and search their graphics, greatly reducing the effort required to find and reuse content between productions.

Robust reporting tools in Streamline provide up-to-the-second data visualization of any metrics in the workflow process. Insights can be used to better allocate resources to the areas of greatest overall benefit to the organization. Streamline reporting allows monitoring of details like order types, deadlines, ordering trends, most ordered asset types, cycle times and more.

Streamline also provides the ability to manage and prioritize graphics production through its order management system. The system offers placeholder workflows for graphics that, when fulfilled by the art department, are automatically delivered by Streamline into the XPression template and ready to air.

“Asset management is a central hub in production workflow today,” said Jeff Moore, Executive VP of Sales and Marketing at Ross Video. “Given our diverse product portfolio, investing in a revolutionary asset management system with strong workflow and integration between Ross’ many product lines is going to be a huge benefit for our customers. The name ‘Streamline’ is a natural fit for what we’re striving to accomplish in this space.”
