Cantemo to Preview Portal 3.0 at IBC, Archiware P5 Integration added to Archive Framework

Amsterdam, 17th August 2016 – Cantemo will be previewing its upcoming release of its media management platform, Cantemo Portal 3.0 at IBC.

Cantemo Portal is a modular platform, enabling users to build a media management structure to suit their individual wishes and requirements. It integrates easily with other parts of the chain, and a number of pre-integrations make that process even easier for popular tools.

Cantemo Portal 3.0 includes native integration with Archiware P5 (, the long-term software solution that moves data offline to disk and tape. It enables users to archive and restore single items, as well as collections of items in Archiware P5, from within Cantemo Portal. The integration has been added to the Cantemo Archive Framework, giving customers native support alongside the existing offerings of Storage Manager, Oracle DIVArchive, and the standard file system archive.

This version includes an infrastructure upgrade to CentOS version 7.x and Python 2.7.x. This enables significantly faster execution of core Portal code, enables switching to a more performant version of PostgreSQL database, and will also make security patch management easier.

Other features in the future roadmap, which will be demonstrated at IBC include support for timecode-based commenting. Users can share videos both internally with existing users and externally with non-registered users. Once shared, users can add timecode-based comments on the shared video, which will be instantly accessible by the users in the system.

Elemental Server integration will also be demonstrated at IBC, giving users the ability to create and manage a broader range of media files. This integration enables seamless API integration with Elemental Transcoders. The Elemental integration also supports the automated workflow rules available within Cantemo Portal.

Support for managing image sequences will also be demonstrated on the Cantemo booth.

“Demands on our customers are constantly evolving, therefore we place a great deal of importance on ensuring Portal is constantly evolving to continually meet those demands,” commented Parham Azimi, CEO, Cantemo. “Many of our customers are using Archiware P5, therefore being able to natively integrate it into Portal is an important feature to make their workflow simpler.”

Cantemo Portal 3.0 will be previewed on the Cantemo booth (7.K01) from 9th – 13th September at IBC.

About Cantemo

Cantemo was established to lead the revolution for next generation Media Asset Management. Its founders, with years of experience behind them, could see a trend emerging for the creation and use of video extending beyond traditional broadcast. This meant that the existing MAM systems would no longer meet the demands of a rapidly evolving market.
