Automate Your Digital Media Workflows with Backblaze and Telestream

Streamlining your digital media workflow can make all the difference when it comes to your productivity—not to mention your budget. For folks in media, entertainment, post-production, corporate, education, government, or content creation, media workflows just got a little easier thanks to a partnership between Backblaze and Telestream.

Now joint customers can store transcoded media files on Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage as their origin store for delivery via Telestream’s Vantage CloudPort product. Read on to learn more about the partnership and what it means for you.

What Does Telestream Do?

Telestream, a Backblaze alliance partner, specializes in products that make it possible to get video content to any audience regardless of how it is created, distributed, or viewed. Throughout the entire digital media lifecycle, from capture to viewing, for consumers through high-end professionals, Telestream products range from desktop components and cross-platform applications to fully-automated, enterprise-class digital media transcoding, and workflow systems. Telestream enables users in a broad range of business environments to leverage the value of their video content.

How Does This Partnership Benefit Joint Customers?

Content is king, as they say, and being able to efficiently and effectively produce content and make it available to the audiences that are going to consume it is critical. This partnership benefits joint customers in a few key ways:

  • Customers can benefit from cost savings in the cloud: Backblaze is a fraction of the cost of diversified cloud providers.
  • By storing transcoded media files in the cloud, customers can leverage other services like QC in the cloud to ensure quality is up to their high standards.
  • Customers can leave on-premises storage in the past and move to the cloud to leverage the cloud’s infinite scalability and parallelism.
  • Making the move to the cloud also reduces the risk of having a single point of failure on premises.

“Telestream and Backblaze are driven by a shared mission to empower our customers and help them make their businesses more efficient. With this collaboration, we can meet our customers where their content is stored and apply Telestream’s best in class media processing tools.”
—Tim MacGregor, Senior Director, Head of Strategy and Product Development, Telestream Cloud
