EMBRACE to launch new release of Pulse-IT and Automate-IT at IBC

EMBRACE, developer of advanced automation and orchestration software solutions for the media and entertainment industry, is launching new versions of EMBRACE Automate-IT and EMBRACE Pulse-IT at IBC.

The latest release features a high-scalability and high-availability version with Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) to support cloud-based deployments on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The new release also features Intelligent Workflow Auto-scaling, hybrid deployment flexibility, staging environment for a resilient architecture, Linux worker nodes, and security updates.

Pulse-IT is a media-oriented business process management software enabling customers to translate, optimize, execute, and monitor any business, broadcast, or digital media workflow simply and quickly.

Automate-IT is a promo versioning management platform bringing automation, orchestration, and collaboration to creative, Broadcast, IT and digital departments.

The new release of Pulse-IT builds on the EMBRACE original software architecture, delivering new Kubernetes capability to enable enhanced levels of scalability, reliability and efficiency.

The containerized and Kubernetes-orchestrated software solution features a rich and extendable API-based software architecture that is integrated with third-party provisioning, cloud networking, and orchestration applications on AWS.

The solution addresses specific needs for core broadcast content preparation applications and for delivering highly intensive file-based media workflow services.

To enable more flexibility and hybrid deployment, the new release also provides three ways for customers to deploy Automate-IT and Pulse-IT applications.

Additionally, for improved reliability, automation, and monitoring, the new release provides customers with the ability to spin up a staging environment alongside their production environment as needed.

The 3.2 release also comes with the ability to run Linux worker nodes for Pulse-IT, enabling customers to run their entire Pulse-IT application on Linux. Lastly, security updates and patches for Python and Django libraries are also incorporated in the new release.

François Billard-Madrières, Head of Engineering, EMBRACE, commented: “Virtualizing the EMBRACE core server was our first step toward unleashing a more flexible and scalable architecture around Amazon EKS – and we are pleased to see this solution deployed by a growing number of global broadcasters and operators.

“Now, through cloud-ready support, Pulse-IT delivers a new level of performance and density while enabling operational benefits, such as automated deployment and more granular system upgrades”.

EMBRACE will be exhibiting at IBC from 15th – 18th September on booth 6.C11.
