NETIA Products at Broadcast Video Expo 2010:
Manreoâ„¢ 2With the introduction of Manreoâ„¢ 2 at IBC in September 2009, NETIA has added 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.
With this new version, Manreo 2 now incorporates the new NETIA Workflow Engine, designed to allow media companies to visualize, create and execute their own workflow with ease. 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. NETIA Workflow Engine can also perform automated transcoding and publishing of media and metadata to the Internet, VOD, mobile services, and IPTV.
Manreo 2 now also incorporates NETIA’s Hypercast Warehouse set of archiving tools, a flexible platform entirely dedicated to media asset management. This 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.
