For those who are serious about non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the content management system industry has just gotten interesting.
That’s because the tech company Alteon, which is a SaaS platform that leverages Web3 technologies, has recently announced a brand new tool – considered to be the first of its kind – that will act as an all-in-one hub for content creators and managers.
This tool is Alteon Publisher – currently in beta testing – which will allow users to create and publish NFTs in real-time and is thought to be the first CMS that is designed for publishing content that is connected to blockchain.
Alteon’s announcement highlights the capabilities of the platform, such as the ability to monetize, download assets, navigate file formats.
Currently, Alteon has been set up to support the Ethereum blockchain and plans to support Flow, Polygon, and Solana.
As for larger organizations, a scaled-up version of the product will be available, called Alteon Enterprise Publisher, which will have direct integration with Vidispine.
If all goes well, then users of the Alteon Publisher platform, through its dashboard, will be able to create NFTs that are available on certain marketplaces like OpenSea. In addition, the platform will let users publish content to the more traditional channels on social media.
“For professional creatives, the dream is to make a living doing what you love. We want to help simplify their workflows, since much of it can be converted using modern and Web3 technologies,” said Matt Cimaglia, Alteon’s co-founder of Alteon. “By streamlining the publishing and distribution process, Alteon has truly become the end-to-end solution for content creators, closing the loop from ideation to end product.”
This cycle starts with the camera-to-cloud technology of Alteon, which was built in partnership with video company Teradek, and reduces the friction within the production process.
Inside of Alteon Cloud, assets can then be edited using its extension for Adobe Premiere Pro as well as shared with team members and reviewed by clients.
“NFT file sizes are limited by today’s blockchain technology,” said Yusuf Ozturk, Alteon’s CTO. “They are limited due to the cost of minting, hampering the quality and size of files, especially for high-fidelity content, which is now generated in terabytes. Alteon allows creators to break through these barriers by storing the high-fidelity content on IPFS, a distributed file management platform, and pointing NFTs to the high-fidelity content.”
By combining Alteon Cloud with additional Web3 technologies, it is set up to empower its enterprise-grade technology offerings yet could also prove affordable to companies of varying sizes.
And with its integrated approach, the platform consolidates its workflows by reducing the amount of apps, logins, and devices that are required in order to get daily work done.
