    Imagine Communications has introduced EPIC, a next-generation operational management and orchestration platform designed to assimilate IT-based environments into the broadcasting realm. “We designed EPIC with a focus on both the current and future needs of broadcasters and media companies,” says Brick Eksten, Chief Product Officer at Imagine Communications. “The software-based nature of the platform will allow us to seamlessly blend operational monitoring and orchestration in a way that leverages enterprise-class IT solutions while catering specifically to the needs of broadcasters.”

    The company has also unveiled the EPIC Multiviewer (EPIC MV), an operational monitoring solution and the first product built on the EPIC platform.  The software-based and UHD-ready IP multiviewer caters for production, acquisition, origination and distribution requirements and provides a single solution for SDI, IP and hybrid environments. EPIC MV can handle an array of formats, from production to multiscreen delivery, and incorporate new formats as required.  Scheduled for commercial availability in June, EPIC MV will debut at NAB Show 2016.
