Primestream Offers SaaS Review and Approval

Primestream promises to simplify media management with updates across its product line helping review and approval, 4K/UHD and IMF workflows.

The company says it has “significantly updated” its core technologies to ingest IP sources into single or multiple self-contained file formats. It is then able to transcode into ProRes, XDCAM, DNxHD, AVC-Intra, and H.264 – then move that content through to production, management and delivery. Users can preview proxies and live recording within a web browser, manage signal-paths using pre-configured presets, create on-the-fly proxies and begin editing with growing streams in Premier Pro. The update enables customers to capture HLS, MPEG DASH, RTP/RTSP and RTMP streams, while also allowing the capture of SMPTE 2022 IP streams such as HD-SDI and 3G-SDI using standard off-the-shelf hardware by AJA.

This new internet software as a service review and approval system can be integrated with existing Xchange systems, or can include a small on-site version of Xchange. The solution provides for on-site control and management with integrated communication to the cloud. Multiple workflows are supported, with comprehensive user-defined security modes to protect sensitive content such as watermarking and expiration dates.

Primestream’s 4K/UHD end-to-end workflow is updated to include support for HDR pass-through, live preview, and proxy generation.

A new centralized configuration module is now available across the Primestream product line with a common UI. This includes on-boarding, provisioning and wizard assisted installation of major parts of the workflow for FORK and Xchange platforms. A built-in ‘help’ system is available that explains each available option.

Finally, Primestream will release Xchange Public APIs with signatures and client access keys allowing customers to extend its solutions with third party integration. For example, customers can now extend Interoperable Master Format (IMF) workflow in conjunction with third-party applications. A number of API methods will be available to deliver the feature-set needed by Primestream Xchange users including media registration, metadata searches, project creation, annotations and more.
