Tedial Showcases IABM Game Changer Award-Winning Virtualized Storage at Broadcast Asia 2017
Tedial, the leading independent MAM technology solutions specialist, is showing its new Tedial Augmented Storage (AST) for the first time in Asia at Broadcast Asia 2017 on booth 4S3-05.
A new concept in storage virtualization systems, AST recently picked up the IABM’s Game Changer Award 2017 in the Storage category. This is the third IABM Game Changer Award that Tedial has won. Last year the company collected the Award in the System Automation & Control category and in 2015 it picked up the prestigious prize for its Tedial Evolution™ platform.
Tedial’s Evolution AST is a new concept in Storage Virtualization Systems that expands and extends the classical paradigm of Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM). AST provides a heterogeneous ecosystem to handle any type of multimedia content regardless of its physical location and facilitates media operations, such as editing based on timecode or efficient management of large UHD or low/lossless compression files across multiple sites around the globe.
Treating content as an object, which includes an innovative minimum metadata packet, allows storage to operate independent of MAM solutions, able to archive and publish content and easily integrate with third-party systems maximizing simplicity and efficiency.
AST virtualizes file locations enabling multi-site operations, cloud workflows or hybrid scenarios. For those customers managing a multi-site, distributed operation, AST can transparently manage the same content in multiple locations, automating task assignment and data transfer across multiple sites as needed.
The platform is built on vastly resilient and scalable architecture and provides the highest security and content protection by requiring authentication. Different groups are assigned different access levels, and retention policies can be easily defined to protect the content and limit the access.
“We are very excited to bring AST to Broadcast Asia 2017 and to highlight how this new archiving concept can benefit workflows. The recent launch has been extremely successful and we are so proud to once again be recognised for our outstanding technical capability with the IABM Game Changer Award, says Esther Mesas, CSO & CMO, Tedial.
Tedial is also showcasing its real-world IMF end-to-end workflow throughout the show. Applying the SMPTE IMF standards to provide a reliable SaaS and proven cloud solution, Tedial architecture supports UHD and HDR, provides adopters with enhanced multi-versioning support, and can address late pending components for previous watermarked versions.
Tedial executives are at Broadcast Asia 2017 discussing IMF strategies, how to apply them to real world distribution problems, how IMF saves money, provides greater efficiency and supports new technologies, and its role in a true “Media Factory,” to automate management of thousands of deliverable formats via a single workflow and a single operators screen.
The cloud is another key focus for Tedial at Broadcast Asia 2017. The company has been providing native support for cloud and cloud hybrid operations for over six years with multiple installations around the globe.
As a result of the continuous improvements in its solutions, Tedial’s full operation in the Cloud now features multi-resolution MPEG-DASH to enable full Web GUI without media browsing issues, Adobe Premier Pro CC, and After Effects CC integration. Content is cached locally, enabling minimal transfers of local high-res operations such as content repurposing, corrections, etc., making content available transparently for the end-users, regardless of location.
Company executives are on-hand to explain how Tedial’s system architecture has been tailored for the Cloud with a flexible infrastructure and native S3 support.
Tedial is also demonstrating media and content management solutions designed to maximize business efficiency and profitability. The company’s real-time monitoring of key performance indicators and reporting tools measure business efficiency and capacity, allowing users to track business processes help customers reach their goals.
