I wanted to take a minute to update everyone with what Tightrope’s Product Engineering team has been working on. For the last few months, we have been working on Cablecast 5.2.0, and it’s now nearly finished. This release includes a totally redesigned Video On Demand system, which will be welcome news to customers new and old.
We had three primary goals for this release:
We will be starting a beta test of Cablecast 5.2.0 shortly, and are looking for help. In order to participate, you need to own a Cablecast VOD, or Cablecast Pro VOD server. The goal of this beta test is to find and fix as many issues as possible before we release the software to the larger customer base. If you are interested in helping out with the beta test, please be aware that there will be problems. We will be here and ready to help when they do arise. If you’re not comfortable with that, please wait for the released software.
If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your contact information, as well as a list of the model and serial number of your video server(s) and VOD server. We have a limited number of beta positions available. We will be using Trello to track issues once the beta starts, and you can check out our progress here.
