​Tedial Offers Hyper IMF Platform and Object-based Storage

Tedial demonstrated automated IMF workflows, and its Evolution aSTORM hybrid storage at IBC 2018.

Tedial’s Hyper IMF, described as an end-to-end MAM solution, supports IMF formats for ingest, archive and delivery, and will be demoed at the RAI with new features that “significantly improve the content delivery and management” to non-linear platforms by providing assembly-on-the-fly.

For example, an automatic leader insertion incorporates all the elements required for each platform (e.g. bars/clock etc.). Hyper IMF also includes automatic localization based on delivery profile, enabling all credits and text insertions for every language required to be added automatically.

“Prior to Hyper IMF, broadcasters had to manually enter this data or create complex code for every destination; a costly and time-consuming process,” says Esther Mesas, CSO/CMO.

The company's Version Factory, now supports an impressive 60 additional new platforms that minimizes the challenge faced when delivering multiple content to non-linear platforms; each with a different flavor and format.

“Using Version Factory and Hyper IMF, Tedial can easily support existing and new platforms, delivering content in the correct format with audio tracks and subtitles in the correct language, as well as any additional components required (artwork/trailers etc.),” says Mesas.

Also at IBC 2018, Tedial will showcase Evolution Astorm, which the company says changes the storage paradigm from the traditional HSM approach (multi-tier vertical) “to a true object based storage environment (multi-site, horizontal).

“Astorm transparently manages various storage tiers across departments and locations. Highly scalable and reliable, it allows users to quickly adapt their investments when technology changes or when related storage costs decrease. A multi-tier agnostic solution, It manages online, cloud, and deep archive storage with complex algorithms based on customer-tailored business rules. It can virtualize file locations to enable multi-site operations, cloud workflows and hybrid scenarios, offering an augmented perception of their physical location.”

She added, “Broadcasters and media companies want access to the latest technology that enables them to quickly and easily reach audiences across multiple platforms whether that’s via traditional TV, VOD, social media, etc. We answer these requirements by providing cutting-edge solutions that create new revenue opportunities, simplify workflows, reduce labour costs and increase fan engagement.”
