Avid’s Interop Features Now in Telestream Vantage and Lightspeed Live

The new Avid Production Asset Monitor in the latest version of Telestream Vantage now supports MediaCentral directory monitoring allowing Vantage to trigger jobs from MediaCentral ‘virtual directories’

Also announced is the latest version of Lightspeed Live Capture which streamlines ingest workflow by creating Avid OPAtom MXF media with associated AAF files and automatically checking assets into Interplay or MediaCentral.

The solution means Avid editors no longer need to spend valuable time rendering and exporting sequences from Media Composer for use in a Vantage workflow. By directly integrating with Interplay or MediaCentral Production, creative teams can spend more time on the creation of media.

In Lightspeed Live Capture v2.3, a Avid Interplay Advanced Encoder option allows baseband SDI signals from live events, tapes, or IP feeds to be encoded into native MXF OPAtom containers and AAF files for use in any file-based workflow.

Lightspeed Live Capture supports ‘growing files’ in an Edit-While-Capture workflow and provides direct support for Avid storage solutions. Files and metadata, including generated MOB ID’s, can automatically be checked into to Interplay.
