​mxfSPEEDRAIL is a Reality for GRB

Reality show producer GRB Entertainment, has been using mxfSPEEDRAIL within their production workflows.

In fact GRB has been using it for two years but only now has it been publicised by makers MOG Technologies.

“mxfSPEEDRAIL has been taking care of our ingest workflows for all of our past and current productions, supporting all of our camera formats and interfacing seamlessly with our Avid production workflow”, said Tim Cunningham – Lead Assistant Editor at GRB Entertainment.


According to MOG, the flexibility brought by the wide range of supported input formats (typical on reality TV) allows one tool to manage the whole ingest process.

The tool also provides the ability to automate the ingest process and manage file renaming, media metadata, media destinations and cleaning the sources automatically. In addition it provides the ability to transcode media, create multiple resolutions simultaneously and automatically, placing each resolution in its proper workspace.

“mxfSPEEDRAIL integrated into our existing workflow, bringing a major increase in performance and reducing the issues usually associated with the ingest process. The product is reliable, stable and reduced our ingest time by 60%,” said Cunningham.
