Stockholm, Sweden Net Insight, the leading providerof media transport and resource scheduling, today announces that its Connector Marketplace that grew by 700% during 2016 will add Microsoft Azure Media Services to its offering. This will allow broadcasters and media companies to purchase Microsoft's cloud based production services from within their own ScheduALL system.

The Microsoft Azure Media Services offered on the Connector Marketplace will include cloud transcoding, file transfer, media analytics and quality control for media production workflows enabling broadcasters a smooth transition from their traditional to cloud-based workflows.

 "As the world of media production resources move to the cloud, integrating these resources into the workflow and budgeting workflow with holistic views across all resources will now be possible," said Martin Karlsson, CTO and vice president product portfolio of Net Insight. "Our platform will tie all these services together making resources available as needed. This is especially appealing to fill occasional use needs."

"The Connector Marketplace serves as a modern channel that matches the way the media production industry is evolving," said Nagu Rangan, senior product marketing manager, Microsoft Azure Media Services at Microsoft Corp. "With Net Insight's existing buyer base, our services will be well-positioned to help a large pool of media professionals meet a flexible variety of needs."

Because it is paired with Net Insight's ScheduALL solution, resource scheduling can be done on the fly with an intuitive user interface. This also creates the unique capability to orchestrate the planning and purchase of resources with full workflow integration, including the cost budgeting stage and billing for financial visibility. Buyers in the marketplace will have the ability to calculate the immediate individual and overall project budget figures for management analysis, approval and reporting.
