CineCert, Marquise Technologies, Venera Technologies Launch COMMA Workflow

The companies have collaborated to offer integration of a media asset management solution (Pakanu) with a mastering (MIST) and QC player (ICE) and an automated file based QC solution (Pulsar).

Dubbed COMMA (COMponentized Media Asset) Workflow, this integrated range of solutions is for the author, QC, and management of media for DCP or IMF workflows.

“The efficiency promises of IMF require seamless access to a shared asset repository such as CineCert Pakanu at all stages of production,” said Dean Bullock, COO of CineCert. “For the first time, using the COMMA Workflow, IMF end users will be able to experience a seamless transition of workflow steps from station to station. The use of COMMA Workflow enabled IMF workstations allow Editorial, QC and data I/O operators to concentrate on their roles.”

Added Laurence Stoll, CEO of Marquise Technologies, “The bricks had been there for a few years, it lacked the cement so that finally the full capabilities of a component-based workflow are demonstrated: efficiency, rationalization of costs and storage, and scalability for the volumes to be processed. The use of MIST and ICE within this integration multiplies their capabilities for the mastering & QC of premium content, especially in 4K HDR.” 

“The value of the sum of our products is much larger than each of them separately. For those who are serious about IMF and the associated workflow, using the COMMA Workflow integrated solution is the way to go,” said Fereidoon Khosravi, SVP, Business Development at Venera.
