Tedial Evolution MAM Makes IBC Debut

MAM specialist Tedial is showcasing Tedial Evolution for the first time in Europe at IBC 2015. It provides broadcasters’ and content owners with tools for multi-site enterprise MAM and a Business Process Workflow. New features for the platform include a fresh user interface and an Object Relational Database.

“Smart media professionals are demanding more benefits from the business of media management,” explains Esther Mesas, Tedial Chief Sales & Marketing Officer. “They realise that the MAM of today needs to be so much more than the simple library and associated task menu of yesterday, and that perfect media management requires exceptionally well-integrated IT architecture.”

New features of Tedial Evolution include:

  • A new GUI designed to speed manual and automated workflows. The new HTML5 interface keeps frequently used tools on the screen for improved performance. Multiscreen (smartphone, tablet, etc.) and multi-platform (IOS, Android, Windows, etc.) operations allow users to manage tasks, validate media or monitor workflows status from mobile devices. The interface is customizable 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. The interface also features a configurable logging board with shortcuts for actions and actors, specially designed for sports and live events.
  • The Search/Indexing engine has been extended. It organizes or searches collections and other object related entities and indexes very large databases via shared indexes. The system auto-completes user keyword inputs and generates suggestions for every entry as it is typed. It offers 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.) based on dynamic, changing relations. Employing an Object Relational Database, entities are logged as assets, which can now be a repository for all shared information. Assets are categorised as members of multiple entities, according to the user needs.
  • All information related to an asset can be explored from the Mediaset view including metadata, media files, attached documents, logical versions, processing or delivery orders. Moreover, related assets (physical versions, promos, parts) and entities can be explored from the original master asset wherever they are located or associated. As part of Tedial’s evolution to support DAM operations, full audio support is now available in the basic MAM.
  • Business Process Management services have been extended to reinforce collaboration, allowing several users to work with the same asset.
  • Tedial has implemented the IMF schema within its MAM and workflow systems, as well as the AMWA FIMS AS-11 specifications. Tedial supports the SPMTE standards of MXF, BXF and AXF and the BPMN 2.0 Notation standard for enhanced interoperability.
