It is used to operate and manage the video workflow and is tightly integrated with Bauer Media's own content management system through Icareus Suite Open API.

More info: https://www.bauermedia.com/en/ Timo Haapala Head of Development COMPLICATED WORKFLOW WAS SIMPLIFIED WITH ICAREUS SUITE Taking videos online can be a challenge due to all the stake holders that need to be taken into account. Bauer Media had previously trusted to several different cloud vendors, but needed now a single point of contact to decrease the complexity of their online video production. The most important target and advantage was to make video publishing easy for Bauer Media's reporters. Now they can just use their own online CMS system to write the news to online sites, attach video to article and push publish. Video goes from news CMS to Icareus’ system, which returns the video URL, takes care of video management, transcoding, streaming and playing the video - and it is not even shown for the news reporters.
