NOA Highlights In-house Digitization Benefits

The AV digitizing and archiving specialist will focus on industrial archiving solutions in Amsterdam.

“NOA solutions, which let users perform in-house digitization so they no longer need to outsource, are intuitive, efficient and reduce costs,” said Christophe Kummer, managing partner of NOA. “Two main points of focus for us today are long-term archiving in open standards and the facilitation of industrial AV legacy migration.”

The company will showcase the mediARC Archive Asset Management (AAM) system, which among other things, can separate user and production management domains and divide content on its original media format from its digital representation within the archival storage.

NOA advocates the use of one lossless archival format, which needs to be able to support all present and future business procedures between legacy archive and production workflows.

Also in the spotlight will be the jobDB 4.1 workflow system, which is said to bring users increased efficiency and reduced labor costs among other benefits. jobDB 4.1 features physical carrier handling with tools, such as BarcodeStation and UniversalDialoguer. The system can manage up to 1000+ carriers in a single workflow each day, “massively increasing” efficiency and lowering labor costs.

“The solution differentiates nowadays between ingest and outgest workflows to create better overview on facsimile recordings versus interpretations; the ability to prioritize workflow settings to easily manage specific files; and a user management rework that syncs via jobDB ProcessorHost toward an active Microsoft directory,” says the firm.

The NOA QualityChecker for jobDB and mediARC features functions that enable an effective approach to industrial digitization projects by combining validation, correction and editing of recorded material into one, single step within the overall workflow.

Interaction between QualityChecker and MediaButler, NOA’s transcoding application, has been ‘optimized’ to efficiently transfer a set of tasks from the analog to the digital domain, thereby streamlining key outgest processes in video digitization projects.
