​SAM Momentum Gains Live Ingest Control

SAM’s asset management software Momentum now includes live ingest to address the need for the efficient handling of multiple live feeds. This is a key requirement in news and sports production in particular, but also in playout service centres and similar operations.

The live ingest function integrates with Momentum’s workflow automation and resource planning, so every feed can be set up with a different workflow. It is also fast enough to enable instant recordings to be started, and metadata can be edited as recordings are happening, further streamlining workflows.

“Live Ingest takes the pain and problems out of facility resource planning, automatically resolving management issues,” said Karl Mehring, SAM Director of Playout and Delivery. “It’s a powerful addition to Momentum’s intelligent, flexible MAM and workflow/resource planning capabilities, which now covers the media production chain from ingest, cataloging, QC and editing to transcoding and multi-platform delivery.”
