Digital asset management service, ChilliVault, has beome a part of BASE Media Cloud.

No financial details of the deal were released.

The service, owned by digital transfer specialists ChilliBean since its launch in 2004 (as ImageVault), will move over to become part of BASE, one of the UK’s leading providers of managed cloud services for media companies.

ChilliVault is also launching an enhanced and upgraded Version 3 to take clients to the next level of video storage. 

“ChilliVault has been instrumental in transforming the workflow and efficiency of some of the UK’s most high-profile media companies”, Geraldine Scher, Founder Director, ChilliBean, said.  

“When the service was created in 2004, video and audio assets only existed as physical tapes. 

“ImageVault succeeded in liberating these assets so that organisations could have web based global access to them 24/7.  

“From the name change to ChilliVault in 2006, the service has gone from strength to strength. 

“BASE offers an extremely exciting home for ChilliVault, a fantastic platform from which the service can develop even further.”

ChilliVault’s clients include market-leading names in the advertising and consumer goods sectors.  The service will migrate to BASE with immediate effect.

Ben Foakes, Founder and Managing Director, BASE, said: “ChilliVault is one of the most respected platforms in the industry and we are delighted to become its new custodian. 

“We feel that it has huge potential for development as part of BASE Media Cloud, to the benefit of both current and prospective clients. 

“Version 3, which we have built in a technical partnership with Veritone for AI-enabled SaaS media asset management, is the start of what we see as a bright new future for this fantastic service.” 

ChilliVault 3.0 has been designed and developed by BASE in partnership with Veritone Inc, the creator of the world’s first operating system for artificial intelligence. 

The new front-end Software-as-a-Service application comprises a customised, multi-tenant version of Veritone’s Digital Media Hub platform, a cloud-native, white-label media asset management solution deployed and hosted in the cloud and, in this use case, in Amazon Web Services (AWS).
