NETIA at Government Video Expo 2009:
This year at Government Video, NETIA will demonstrate Manreoâ„¢ 2, the latest version of its Manreo media asset management (MAM) system which includes powerful new automation and archiving tools to streamline workflow and simply and efficiently repurpose and broadcast content assets to multiple platforms.
Designed with an open, scalable architecture, Manreo 2 has all the tools needed to simplify the cataloging, indexing, accessing, and distribution of media. Manreo 2 is designed to maximize productivity gains in asset management and the use of rich media, which in turn can be repurposed and published to platforms such as Web portals and mobile devices. The solution supports all industry-standard formats, ingesting content, generating browse proxies, enriching media through speech-to-text functionality, and providing easy access to media.
Manreoâ„¢ 2 Incorporates NETIA Workflow Engine and Hypercast Warehouse
Manreoâ„¢ 2 now incorporates the new NETIA Workflow Engine, designed to allow media companies to easily visualize, create, and execute their own workflow. NETIA Workflow Engine facilitates and harmonizes exchanges between all existing applications found in a broadcast environment. Accessed via a user-friendly graphic interface, NETIA Workflow Engine orders tasks to optimize efficiency and load balancing, automates content distribution processes, and includes a security warning and notification system.
Manreo 2 now also incorporates NETIA’s Hypercast Warehouse set of archiving tools, a flexible platform entirely dedicated to media asset management. The powerful archiving manager at the heart of the system interfaces with acquisition, production, automation and storage applications. Owing to its adaptive flexibility, Hypercast Warehouse integrates with any environment and can be used to manage audio, video, or images in all file formats (MXF, XDCAM, MPEG 4, MPEG 2, WMV, etc.). Video is ingested at a high resolution and converted automatically to a low-resolution proxy used for indexing.
Hypercast Warehouse further turns dialog into searchable text, making video content even more readily available for comprehensive search, access, and retrieval. Because Hypercast Warehouse can restore designated high-resolution files to editing or playout systems, it simplifies both production and repurposing of stored media.
