​IPV Adds Curator Analytics Tool

New features added to IPV’s asset management system are intended to make it easier to address the increased demand for video content.

According to IPV’s Product Manager, James Varndell, “Using Curator in video production saves you time, helps teams work better and makes content creation easier. But it’s also important for the entire organization to see quantifiable business benefits. The new features we’ve added to Curator do both. They allow organisations to realise a better return on investment while making it easier for users to search, discover and create content.”

With 81% of businesses stating that they expect to use analytics in their decision-making processes, a measure of investment is rising in value. IPV has launched the Curator Analytics module for this. It gathers data while users work, and as automated jobs are processed. Curator Analytics helps users to monitor the effect of its system by identifying where bottlenecks are happening and analyzing production output processes. It also helps operators cut costs by optimizing file sizes and the usage of archives.

Since metadata is vital in the management of media, users can now edit tags directly through Clip Link to ensure users make the most of assets. The brand-new experience for the bulk editing of metadata also reduces the large amount of time and effort normally required to ensure that metadata is as useful as possible.

Users can also work faster with the launch of Curator Logger directly from the 'Curator for Adobe' panel - reducing the number of clicks from finding to logging and editing content. Search capabilities from within Premiere Pro and After Effects allows users to save even more time by checking a project into Curator straight from their Adobe app – ideal for fast turnaround productions.

New third party integrations include Root 6: ContentAgent, Amberfin Dark, Amberfin Unified QC and AWS SQS queue.

“The wider variety of QC, transcoding and storage integrations means that Curator functions seamlessly in any workflow, and that users don’t have to change the products they’re already familiar with,” says Varndell. “The additional capabilities give editors more accurate tools to enhance their creative workflows including the ability to find, log and create with assets stored in OTMM.”
