Tedial MAM Technology Now Fully Compliant With Europe’s DPP Initiative

Looking to help establish more efficient workflows for archive and DPP delivery among its client base, Malaga, Spain-based Tedial, a provider of media asset management (MAM) technology solutions, has successfully met the criteria for the DPP’s Compliance Programme and has achieved full AMWA certification for its Enterprise Tarsys MAM platform.

Esther Mesas, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Tedial, said that the company provides software-based content and content management business solutions that maximize operational efficiency and profitability to broadcast and other media organizations.

“We have always prided ourselves on being processing agnostic, allowing media organizations to apply their wrappers of choice with regards to current and future industry standard content exchange initiatives,” she said.
“With the addition of native AS-11 DPP support, our customers can rest easy knowing all their DPP compliance requirements are taken care of in a seamless way.”

Mesas added that the Tedial Tarsys system is the first industry MAM platform to meet the AS-11 DPP Certification Level Criteria, as determined by the DPP Compliance Programme and UK DPP Broadcaster Technical Delivery Specification. Its native DPP support provides efficient workflows for archiving, processing and delivery of AS-11 UK DPP files, allowing these processes to be automated wherever possible. This enables information to be presented in a straightforward way, making the operator’s task much simpler.

DPP represents the UK’s first common file format, structure and wrapper to enable TV programme delivery by file. It was first published in January 2012.

DPP support ensures that all media files delivered to UK broadcasters meet compliance regulations, and have all the necessary metadata attached thanks to a specific data model extension that supports DPP metadata. Tarsys now also provides native support for reading, extracting and validating AS-11 UK DPP content, while native support for writing DPP files eliminates the need for an external editor.

An out-of-the-box ingest workflow brings greater efficiencies, automating the file reception creation, metadata review, file integrity checking and DPP compliance checking processes. If compliance requirements are not met, the operator is alerted to manually add the required metadata. Operators can use Tedial’s tools to add subtitles, audio files and additional metadata as required in order to create a new DPP compliant version of the media file.

For further ease of use, the Content Packaging for Delivery function within Tedial’s Ficus system can be used to create a MPM workflow to export the selected components of the MediaSet.
