Transfer, transform, orchestrate and monitor your media movements

VIA Xsquare provides a single entry point for production teams to transform, orchestrate and monitor media files as they move through the live workflow all the way from ingest to shared storage and distribution. By centralizing all media processing job requests in a single web interface, reducing transcoding needs, and enabling SDR/HDR conversion on the fly, VIA Xsquare maximizes productivity and offers higher visibility of all workflow processes. Its high-availability design and flexible architecture provide users with a scalable system to manage workflows between EVS systems, third-party storage,  and non-linear editing (NLE) systems.

Core Benefits

  • Maximize your productivity

    Acting as central orchestrator for all job requests, and providing robust and high-speed transcoding operations, VIA Xsquare makes it easier to process your media in multiple formats and to simultaneous destinations (e.g. playout, archive, social media and post-production). 

  • Scale with confidence

    Scale and orchestrate your processing power with confidence: benefit from VIA Xsquare’s high availability design for guaranteed uptime and a flexible architecture that can quickly meet all new business requirements. 

  • Streamline your production workflows

    VIA Xsquare reduces transcoding needs thanks to native H.264 extraction from the server and allows you to easily cross convert between HDR and SDR to adapt to all broadcast standards and production environments. 

  • Easy integration and total transparency

    VIA Xsquare enables seamless workflows between EVS and third-party systems, managing client job requests through APIs, and providing advanced integration with post-production tools including AVID, Adobe, and FinalCutPro.
