Bonded Services is an
archival storage service, while Teresis is a developer of a browser-based
production asset management solution. Under the terms of the agreement, Bonded
Services will add Teresis’ tapeless automation and digital asset management
technologies to its global portfolio of media management and storage services.
Teresis delivers a cost effective means to digitize a tape
library with its Genesis Multi-Purpose Encoder and MXF+Encoder. It also
provides content owners with a means to keep all their archived content
securely stored online in an easily-searchable format on TeresisOnline.com, the
Teresis Media Library’s software-as-a-service platform.
Bonded’s customers can have media assets digitized into
high-resolution formats that will preserve the life of these assets. They will also have access to a low-resolution
file that enables content owners to use a secure Web browser to view and search
their library online. Content can then be sold or licensed as for stock or VOD
Bonded has plans to implement Teresis’ capabilities into
each of its facilities throughout the world, including facilities in Amsterdam,
Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Toronto. In return, Teresis
will recommend Bonded to its clients for different services such as archival
storage, operational support, fulfillment and logistics.
