Turner Broadcasting System has chosen Digital Rapids’ Kayak dynamic workflow platform to power media processing operations for its current and future multiscreen video initiatives.

Turner's initial use of Kayak and Transcode Manager 2.0 for multiplatform distribution spans tasks ranging from multistage image processing and transcoding to packaging the media into the multiple formats required by varying viewing devices.

According to Digital Rapids, Kayak provides a modular, component-based architecture and development environment to enable integration of custom-developed functionality directly into the Kayak architecture.

Turner has developed its own custom Kayak components, “enabling seamless integration with Turner's existing business systems, and we are pleased to partner with Digital Rapids to further our digital encoding initiatives," said Brooks Tobey, Turner’s senior vice president of sales solutions and multiscreen development and delivery.
