Harness the power of hybrid cloud

Looking for a quick overview? Check out this three minute Kumulate pitch.

  • Unlock the true power, flexibility and efficiency of hybrid cloud ecosystems. Kumulate automates the management of your content across whichever storage tiers suit your business requirements – public cloud, private cloud, on-premise disk or tape. Automated workflows ensure that assets are always stored in the most cost-efficient location, and are always where you need them, in the format you require.

Move faster – pain-free migrations

  • Migrations are a necessary but often painful part of keeping storage systems up to date and as efficient as possible. Whether you’re migrating tape versions, from on-premise to cloud, or from legacy tape systems such as Oracle DIVA or Sepctralogic, Kumulate’s intelligent, automated solutions relieve the pain.


Deep integrations & agnostic approach 

  • MAMs, PAMs, NRCS systems, NLEs – whichever systems you have, Kumulate works with them and allows you to build the ecosystem you need. API-level integration with cloud and storage partners, cognitive services and machine learning platforms gives you access to content enhancement as part of your workflows. And Masstech’s agnostic approach means that you won’t be tied into any particular vendor – you’re free to choose whichever best suits your business and operational requirements.


Deep integrations & agnostic approach 

  • Create your workflows, then sit back and let Kumulate do the hard work. Content movement, transcode, enrichment, packaging – build your workflows using Kumulate’s intuitive drag and drop user interface, and your assets will be exactly where you need them, when you need them, in the format that you need them.


Search, Find, Share - everywhere

  • Finding your content quickly is key to efficient operations. Kumulate’s Federated Search takes this one step further, allowing you to locate and retrieve content from anywhere within your organization, at any location in the world. Kumulate’s enriched metadata makes finding the correct assets a cinch – you can even search in different systems (Avid, Grass Valley etc).


Unleash the potential of your newsroom

  • Got news? Kumulate integrates seamlessly with all major NRCS systems (iNEWS, ENPRS, Octopus, Ross etc), allowing users to seamlessly archive, retrieve and exchange stories and assets. Auto-archive rundowns and assets, and link text, scripts and other files directly to the video in the archive. Then use those assets as searchable metadata to easily find and share them, locally and across your entire organization and sister stations.
