​IPV Launches Curator 2.0

The software specialist says the new MAM package benefits from a faster installation process due to fewer manual configurations and fresh integrations with providers like Microsoft Azure and AWS.

“More than ever before, content creators need the most effective means to manage not just assets, but entire workflows,” said IPV’s Nigel Booth. “With the roll-out of Curator 2.0, we let content creators in any industry search, discover and create video programming to make the best use of the growing mountain of media assets that’s now present in multiple industries.”

He points to intelligent automation of subtitles. Integrating with Azure Media Services, the system “saves time and expensive resources, giving users the ability to automatically generate subtitles for all their assets,” he says. “This is especially useful for educational institutions that don’t have limitless resources but need to comply with legislation by providing accessible video content to all viewers.”

Curator 2.0 also features Clip Link Collections which give users the ability to keep track of assets. Using the feature, selected media can be added to a collection, sent to a specified destination or shared with other users.

Project Versioning has also been added to Curator’s Adobe integration, improving the management and collaboration within the editing software to ensure every version of a project is automatically stored and giving producers an overview of who created a version, and when.

To gives users more control over their metadata, Curator 2.0 also features a new thesaurus search feature in Curator Logger.

“Because it’s built on a suite of microservices, Curator is a continually evolving platform that we can always add new features to,” said James Varndell, Product Manager at IPV. “Many of these have now become services and products in their own right, so we’ve rolled them together into a new package of the system.”
