Dimetis puts service orchestration on centre stage at IBC

IP Pioneer to showcase Broadcast Operation Support System (BOSS)

Amsterdam, Netherlands: September 1, 2016 — Dimetis, IP pioneer and provider of software solutions that manage contribution and distribution for customers worldwide, will be demonstrating its portfolio of service orchestration solutions at this year’s IBC show in Hall 1 Stand B30.

The company will be showcasing its popular BOSS Broadcast products, most notably BOSS LINK Manager™, BOSS BROADCAST Manager™, and BOSS FILE TRANSFER Manager™, that complement the company’s cloud offering — BOSS Cloud™.

Orchestration_IconDimetis will also be demonstrating its latest innovations to the range, following a recent announcement that the company is partnering with V-Nova to integrate its P.Link contribution solution into BOSS LINK Manager. P.Link is a software-based encoding and decoding solution that offers unmatched 4K performance at visually lossless quality and low latency, making it the perfect addition to the Dimetis management platform.

The BOSS suite streamlines complex workflows in today’s dynamic marketplace — from cloud solutions and software-defined networks, to content creation and beyond — and was designed to simplify network management by quickly creating and managing services.

“While IP is currently experiencing a boost in the media environment, Dimetis has pioneered the IP transition for the last 10 years. Our BOSS platform operates across playout, contribution and production and essentially allows customers to incorporate any kind of virtualization into their operations. One of the main benefits of the platform is that it is completely hardware and software agnostic, which gives our customers high levels of interoperability, while still using best-of-breed hardware in their workflows,” says Shahin Arefzadeh, Dimetis COO.

The demonstrations on the Dimetis stand will also highlight the cost savings inherent in the BOSS platform.

“Typically a traditional workflow is time and money intensive. Incorporating BOSS product changes that by saving more than 5,000 man hours a year and bringing the cost down to under $50,000 a year. Ultimately the BOSS platform is a business enabler, allowing broadcasters to get the return on investment they want and future-proof their operations.”
