Tedial HYPER IMF MAM – New features guarantee operational efficiencies
Tedial’s HYPER IMF, the world’s only certified end-to-end IMF workflow, is at NAB with an enhanced feature- set that includes support for 2018 SMPTE IMF standards, including Apple ProRes wrapped in MXF. Business Cases that apply to IMF processes have been incorporated so content can be efficiently managed and MAM-workflow orchestrations can be easily supported, such as attaching late deliveries of forensic watermarked components to previously distributed media, detecting and managing duplicates, and waiting for master assets to arrive. Assembly of completely new IMF packages is accomplished using low-resolution proxies and a Web-based GUI. Powerful dashboards have been added for real-time monitoring of operations and system wide capacity monitoring. HYPER IMF has a proven agnostic infrastructure; it can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud, and in hybrid infrastructures.
Tedial Version Factory 2019
Tedial’s award-winning Version Factory, the world’s only single workflow that automates thousands of OTT and VOD versioning tasks, is back at NAB as Version Factory 2019. The new version features upgrades that include: managing ‘on-the-fly’ assembly of unique versions, including pre, post and mid-roll insertions; matching contractual distribution requirements for timely deliveries; enabling IMF-compliant low-resolution proxy edits on media and templates so seasons of episodes can be managed with a single configuration.
Users that deploy the Version Factory and HYPER IMF will benefit from support for existing and new platforms, delivery of content in the correct format with audio tracks and subtitles in the correct language, as well as any additional components required (artwork/trailers etc.).
