A disruptive innovation

THE FLOWEDGE CHANGES HOW MEDIA ASSET MANAGEMENT WORKS.

The FlowEdge is an unbeatable hybrid media system with a modular and decentralized edge computing setup. It is a seamless combination of cloud-services, the powerful micro-server called the FlowAnt and the industry-proven software created by FlowWorks.

The key component of the FlowEdge system is the Flow Ant, which is a powerful micro-server that basically enables the complete system. The Flow Ant is an innovative technical solution that offers something unique to the market – a complete solution for managing media – in a highly qualitative but affordable format. For a smaller amount of content and for a smaller team (up to 50 users) the FlowAnt offers all that is needed for an efficient and well-functioning media asset management. Following the principals of large media asset management systems the FlowAnt gives its users full ownership of their media and allows them to distribute it according to need. The Flow Ant stores media on a hard-disc, eliminating the risk for data privacy issues.
Another key difference compared to cloud-based services is the amount of media you can handle as well as the cost structure for doing so. With online services, where you mostly pay a regular fee defined by storage size, the Flow Ant works in the opposite way: you pay a one-time investment when buying the product with which you can manage an unlimited amount of media. The FlowAnt is ready to work on your media and metadata before it is uploaded into the cloud parts, converting the whole workflow of ingesting, managing and distributing the content for any purpose. This accelerates all media communication processes by a factor or 25, all tested AI workflows by at least a factor of 15, enabling you to have your content up and ready in very short time frames. There is nothing comparable on the market.

GAME CHANGERS

01

Automatic transcoding

When a media file is uploaded, from for example a camera, it is directly uploaded to the FlowAnt which automatically transcodes the file to a minimal format. When this file then further is uploaded to the cloud, it is considerably smaller than with alternative transcoding methods. This means the files used for the upload are converted to much smaller needed online formats and processed before the upload from the customer’s location to the online service. This process takes away the need for manual pre-processing, manual transcoding and manual uploading of massive video files.
02

Efficient use of cloud space

When the file is stored in the cloud it takes less space
03

Efficient sharing

When the file is shared from the file it again takes less resources to share it further
