Evolutionary update to Tedial's MAM at NAB
MAM specialist Tedial is showing an enhanced version of its media IT platform Tedial at NAB. Tedial Evolution has advanced search/indexing tools, new services to explore archives, and improved integration between archive and workflows engines.
Built on the Tarsys MAM platform, the GUI for Tedial Evolution keeps frequently used tools on the screen for improved performance. Multi-screen (smartphone, tablet, etc.) and multi-platform (IOS, Android, Windows) operations allow users to manage tasks, validate media or monitor workflows status from mobile devices.
The interface is customisable for individual preferences or work assignments, including different metadata views and screen configurations, with an integrated activity monitor and unified view of archives, workflows and business processes. It features a logging board with shortcuts for actions and actors, specially designed for sports and live events.
The Tarsys search and indexing functionality has been extended. It will organise/search collections and other object related entities, index large databases via shared indexes, and automatically tag descriptive metadata based on scoring of texts using stop words.
The system autocompletes user keyword inputs and generates suggestions for every entry as it is typed. It offers new methods to surf the MAM through 'departments' using an Amazon.com style facets category and/or group entities. The system can also auto-tag, relating assets based on most relevant tags.
A new set of tools provides a service to manage group entities, a multi-level classification schema (collections, albums, series, projects, rights, delivery packages, etc.). Employing the power of a real Object Relational Database, entities are logged as assets, which can now be a repository for all shared information. Assets are categorized as members of multiple entities, according to the user needs.
As part of Tedial’s support of MAM operations, full audio support is now available in the basic Tarsys MAM. Tedial Evolution further offers integration with rights management systems to ensure media is Rights aware.
“Since 2001, Tedial’s MAM and media IT solutions have helped broadcasters and media companies improve efficiency, enhance productivity and optimise creativity,” explains Jay Batista, general manager, US operations. “Tedial Evolution provides a business platform that marries logistics planning and media preparation into a complete supply chain, enabling customers to grow their businesses even as the business of media consumption evolves at an unprecedented speed.”
Tedial is at NAB booth N1937.
