Hot cloud storage company Wasabi has announced a partnership with Primestream to deliver Primestream’s Xchange media asset management (MAM) platform to media professionals worldwide.


Wasabi: Together Primestream and Wasabi provide a hybrid solution for artists to work quickly and efficiently

With the new solution, the Xchange MAM system will provide a high performance, hybrid platform integrating Wasabi storage for global asset management, archiving, content contribution, production and distribution.

“There are very few industries that face the same storage challenges as media production and the pandemic has only complicated things,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi. “To succeed in a time when collaboration is now primarily remote and files sizes are larger than ever, production teams need agile tools to work on project files securely, quickly and affordably. Primestream’s Xchange media asset management platform enables production from anywhere and combined with Wasabi hot cloud storage provides an affordable hybrid solution for artists to work quickly and efficiently.”

The Wasabi and Primestream partnership allows media professionals to manage more content quickly, leverage AI with an easy to use interface, increase collaboration and provide a holistic view over a media team’s entire media library.

“Organisations that use Primestream have what they need to tell a complete story and create new content whether they’re working in person or on the other side of the globe,” said Claudio Lisman, president and CEO of Primestream. “Editors across multiple geographic locations can work on video projects together and media can be shared with anyone as needed for review and approval. Together with Wasabi, our users can store more data than ever due to disruptively low-cost and scalable cloud storage and never worry about going over budget or running out of storage space from rough-cut to final cut.”
