North Plains, the leading provider of digital asset management (DAM) software and solutions, today announced the availability of its latest addition to its suite of solutions, TeleScope Video Manager v2.0. A component of TeleScope, Video Manager v2.0 is a comprehensive solution for organizations that create, ingest, and distribute all types of video assets. The product will be introduced at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference, taking place April 14-19 in Las Vegas and showcased in the Telestream (# SL9214) and Infosys (#SL14108) partner booths.
North Plains is best known for its strategic approach to incorporating digital asset management at the beginning of the asset lifecycle, as an essential part of the creative production process and through its tight integration with existing authoring applications.
