Max Cloud is built to drive collaboration across your organization by delivering the functionality, advanced graphics and rapid production of Max with the availability, scalability and security-rich environment of the IBM Cloud. Define regional workgroups to allow stations to fill in for one another or simultaneously work together. Low-friction content sharing and distribution helps virtually any producer, designer or talent contribute to shows for multiple markets so scenes can be more rapidly developed and put to-air.
Deploy redundancy and cloud disaster recovery workflows across your group to help one station fill in for another as needed.
Work with sister stations and share content in near-real time to help increase productivity and optimize your Max investment across your workflows.
Avoid the need for near-duplicate footprints in every market while requiring fewer resources to support a flexible, highly available, agile and self-managing infrastructure.
Support remote access to media, which can help to enable a globally distributed workforce that can collaborate in an efficient and productive manner via the cloud.
Establish redundancy and cloud disaster recovery workflows to help increase availability and improve resource allocation for high-intensity workloads. You can also share resources across station groups by pointing to shared lockers and creating tasks for other stations.
Empower the best people in your station group to help the markets that need it most by accelerating the development and delivery of scenes regardless of physical location.
Max Cloud is designed to help you leverage the IBM Cloud which is recognized by credible third-party analysts such as Gartner and Forrester as delivering industry-leading governance, integration and deployment for mission-critical processes. It is also designed so you can utilize other public and private clouds.

Getting started with this product
Cloud broadcasting includes hosting advanced graphics, media and other station content in the cloud. Cloud broadcasting also allows for remote access and facilitates collaboration within station workgroups.
The cloud increases productivity due to a streamlined collaboration across station groups. Stations can reduce duplicate efforts and better leverage internal experts and resources when needed most.
The cloud also provides disaster recovery in the events where physical storage would fail. Collaborating teams can cover for each other in the event of a station losing power or temporarily going offline. As a result, viewers can depend on your team for continuous coverage when they need it most. Overall, the cloud helps to maximize productivity and optimize resource allocation across stations.
Max Cloud allows for collaboration across sister stations, cutting down on duplicate efforts. You can share content such as scenes, icons and mapping in a cloud repository. In addition, if one station goes dark, another can pick up where it left off. Or if a colleague is sick or on vacation, someone can easily fill in.
Yes, the content stored in Max Cloud can be used across sister stations, eliminating the need to make near-duplicate content, saving on operational costs and increasing productivity.
Moving operations to the cloud ensures that every station can be a disaster recovery backup. In addition, storing and managing content in a cloud repository helps prevent your team from losing valuable digital resources during an unexpected outage.
No. Max Cloud reduces the amount of hardware needed across markets, saving on cost and productivity by erasing near-duplicate footprints across stations.
No. While Max Cloud allows for advanced graphics and rapid production of Max, it is integrated into your organization’s existing Max toolkit, requiring no additional staff. It is an environment that serves as a digital locker for your stations.
No. Max Cloud is a supplement to the Max ecosystem, so there’s only one system to learn, and all components integrate seamlessly with each other.
