Vantage Intelligence. Rapid Scaling.

Does your infrastructure strategy include embracing private cloud, public cloud, and/or on-premises workflows and automation? Do you need the flexibility to be able to scale processing capacity up and down regardless of how you deploy Vantage in your workflows?

You can leverage the power and flexibility of the Vantage Media Processing Platform whether you’re working on-premises, in a virtual environment, in the cloud, and with combinations of those. You are not locked into a single approach, and you do not need to overbuild your datacenter for peak needs.

Vantage can run on public and private virtualized infrastructure with a proven multi-node orchestration engine that intelligently capitalizes on the flexibility of virtual infrastructure. You can optionally use GPU acceleration for select GPUs for unparalleled transcoding speed of popular formats. See the Vantage Virtual Domain Management Guide for more information.

Vantage Deployment Options

Many broadcast and media leaders are adopting or planning to adopt commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) abstracted hardware and virtualized software deployment for content production infrastructure. Many are also transitioning some or all of their transcoding and media processing workflows to the cloud. In addition to on-premises, permanent licenses, Vantage offers the flexibility to be used in popular virtual infrastructures using permanent perpetual licenses, or by renting licenses with a subscription program for as little as a 30-day commitment, so additional system capacity can be added or removed as needs dictate.

Vantage is also available in a cloud-based, pay-as-you-go deployment model in Vantage Cloud Port. With Vantage Cloud Port, “on-the-ground” workflows can be extended into the cloud, or entire workflows can be uploaded and run in the cloud.

Flexible Vantage Licensing

Wherever Vantage is deployed you have a variety of licensing options and programs available.

  • Permanent, Perpetual Licenses (On-premises Deployment)
    Vantage licenses can be used for on-premises deployment in customer datacenters. Vantage is designed for servers where Vantage transcoding, analysis and video processing is multi-threaded and optimized for multi-core 64-bit Windows Server architectures such as the Lightspeed server family available from Telestream.
  • Permanent, Perpetual Licenses (Virtual Deployment)
    Vantage licenses, as purchased, can be used for virtual deployments in most environments. In order to use GPU acceleration on VM’s (ESXi and Hyper-V) running on COTS hardware, the SKU V-LS-VIRTUAL-SW should be ordered per node. This license is compatible with certain GPUs running on certain VM environments (ESXi and Hyper-V), currently K80, M60, P100, V100 and RTX4000, and also P40 and T4 (Hyper-V only). Additional GPU models are currently undergoing qualification. Please contact Telestream Enterprise Sales for full information.
  • Vantage Subscription Program (On-premises or Virtual Deployment)
    The Vantage Subscription program allows for flexible deployment of Vantage licensing by offering fully functional Vantage licenses for periods of as few as 30-day terms. Note that Lightspeed hardware is not included in this subscription program. The benefit of the Vantage Subscription program is that customers can scale their permanent license deployment as their needs increase and decrease without having to overbuild for peak periods.
  • Vantage Cloud Port
    Since most media companies wish to continue to use their on-premise technology while moving new workflows and burst capacity to the cloud, the dominant on-premise market presence of the Vantage Media Processing Platform makes it the perfect choice to support these hybrid workflows. Vantage Cloud Port was created to address these kinds of applications.

With the new consumption-based actions in Vantage Cloud Port, users only pay for media processing results.

  • Vantage Cloud Port is location and resource aware: Vantage workflows automatically “follow the media."
  • As media files are orchestrated, Vantage Cloud Port automatically provides intelligent and efficient management of cloud storage, avoiding egress fees and providing operational efficiencies that are easily monitored.
  • Workflows can be made to burst in peak demand situations – you’re ready for worst case workload without constant over provisioning. Consumption based pricing protects your bottom line.
  • Extensive partner integrations that have made Vantage the industry standard are now available in a flexible hybrid cloud offering. Find out more.
