IPV’s IP and High Res Focus at NAB

UK-based media asset management and technology specialist, IPV, will demonstrate the latest advances in its Curator Media Asset Management (MAM) system at NAB. In particular, IPV says it will showcase how Curator responds to industry trends such as IP-based operations and UHD broadcasts.

Curator is the product of an eight-year development initiative at IPV. “From day one it has been configured as a software-only product running on standard IT servers,” says David Cole, CEO. “IP-based operation has been a cornerstone of its proposition throughout its development, so at NAB, IPV will demonstrate how this advanced MAM system is strategically positioned to help broadcasters and facilities that are looking to migrate to IP-based operations.”

At NAB, IPV will demonstrate its 4K proposition, as well as revealing its UHD roadmap to 8K and beyond.

Intuitive user interfaces are a major new feature of the software's latest iteration. IPV says it will demonstrate the ease with which a user can develop the exact screen-based UI that they need. By configuring the UI to their specific operational requirements, IPV believes that Curator can create significant efficiencies in customer facilities, and also in their clients’ operations.

“During the last 12 months we have channelled significant resources into the development of Curator and at NAB visitors will start to see the results of this initiative,” commented Cole. “2016 will prove to be a strategic milestone year for our company and this will be evident to visitors to our booth at NAB.”

System features include: Frame-accurate with timecode; enables users to access and use proxy media during ingest; populates production proxy media library from both SDI and file-based media; and it includes multi-user annotation and logging, rough-cut editing and archive.
