​Elements to Showcase Media Library at IBC

German media storage and asset management solutions vendor Elements will showcase its web-based MAM Media Library at IBC2015. This workflow management tool allows users access to view, present and edit media assets on a HTML5 platform from any location on a standard MAC or PC.

The Media Library is offered as an option of the company's workflow management feature set that comes with Elements' storage appliances: One, NAS, Gateway and Cube.

“The Media Library enables editors and directors to collaborate easier and faster than ever before, reducing the time to completion significantly,” said André Kamps, CEO of Elements. “The entire set of editing functionalities embedded in the Media Library is fully intuitive to use, rendering virtually any training or orientation obsolete.”

The Media Library is compatible with the usual suite of professional editing applications, enabling operators to transfer entire projects from the Media Library to any other editing application. It also supports Avid bin-locking and project sharing.

It allows on-screen drawings using a standard mouse, with no separate tool or application required.

Further functionality includes a task manager for customised workflow automation, a full text search engine for online storage and any LTFS archive, and a user and rights management feature.

There's an editing application, enabling operators to create rough-cuts of the original film material remotely via the HTML 5 platform without first performing transcoding or copy tasks.

“Basically operating like every other professional editing tool available today, the features provided in the embedded editor cover virtually the full spectrum of editing functionalities,” says Kamps.
