Tedial Supports Automated Sports And Live Events Workflows

At the 2019 NAB Show, Tedial will demonstrate its SmartLive software, which supports automated sports and live events workflows. It will also demonstrate its Hyper IMF MAM, an upgraded version of its Version Factory automated single workflow for multiple platform delivery; and upgrades to the Evolution aStorm hybrid content management solution. The company said that all of these products help broadcasters improve their operations with “measurable financial advantages and operational efficiencies.”

Tedial's SmartLive features a metadata engine that automates highlight creation and distribution. It is also tightly integrated with digital platforms and social media. The software includes a variety of capabilities that allow users to automate the metadata ingest process; automatically provision a production environment for the production team; manage multi-venue feeds; and automatically generate personalized content of one or multiple games, or even an entire season of highlights; and feed campaigns to social media platforms.

The company said SmartLive provides measureable financial advantages by enabling the same production team to create more content resulting in increased fan engagement and additional revenue. It also permits quicker access to content allowing a shift to more affordable digital models.

Tedial’s HYPER IMF is used to develop end-to-end IMF workflows and will be shown at the NAB Show with an enhanced feature-set that includes support for Apple ProRes wrapped in MXF. Business Cases that apply to IMF processes have been incorporated so that content can be efficiently managed and MAM-workflow orchestrations can be easily supported. This can include attaching late deliveries of forensic watermarked components to previously distributed media, detecting and managing duplicates, and waiting for master assets to arrive.

Assembly of completely new IMF packages is accomplished using low-resolution proxies and a Web-based GUI. Powerful dashboards have been added for real-time monitoring of operations and system wide capacity monitoring. HYPER IMF has a proven agnostic infrastructure; it can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud, and in hybrid infrastructures.

Version Factory is the company’s OTT and VOD versioning system. AT NAB it will be demonstrated with new features that include: managing on-the-fly assembly of unique versions (including pre, post and mid-roll insertions); matching contractual distribution requirements for timely deliveries; and enabling IMF-compliant low-resolution proxy edits on media and templates so seasons of episodes can be managed with a single configuration.

Users that deploy the Version Factory and HYPER IMF will benefit from support for existing and new platforms, delivery of content in the correct format with audio tracks and subtitles in the correct language, as well as any additional components required (artwork/trailers etc.).

Finally, Evolution aStorm is a scalable content management solution has been upgraded with numerous cost-saving features. It changes the storage paradigm from the traditional HSM approach to a true multi-tier, multi-site object-based storage environment. And it transparently manages various storage tiers across departments and continents. New features at NAB, include: Optimizing transfers between sites for reduced transfer costs; and improved tape migration workflows between technologies for increased resource efficiency resulting in lower migration costs. The aStorm also now supports Oracle cloud storage.
