Connect the Dots in Your Business
In today’s fast-changing business environment, broadcast, media and entertainment companies need to be extremely flexible and efficient throughout the whole cycle of creation, management, and distribution of content.

High Flexibility and Seamless Infrastructure Improvement
Unlike other technology producers who aim to tie up their clients with single vendor dependencies, we offer the freedom to dynamically benefit from a variety of industry-specific technologies while retaining the advantages of using a single system. Seamlessly connect any system to LAPIS without loss of information, process interruptions or staff resistance.
High-end Capabilities and Scalability
The unique design of the system allows us to easily configure the system to meet the specific needs of your business and to connect with every dot (people, data, processes) within and outside the organization. The architecture of LAPIS allows us to significantly reduce critical resources such as time, qualifications and maintenance throughout the whole life-cycle of the system which leads to many benefits such as fast deployment, friendly configuration, “zero” learning curve, and quick adaptation.
