Vidispine 4.5 Released

Vidispine which makes the eponymous content management software is updated to 4.5 and supports both S3 compatible storage and Spectra Logic BlackPearl and includes a beta of Export Templates.

The Swedish company is announcing support connecting Spectra Logic BlackPearl storage systems with the Spectra S3 interface. You can do this both from Vidispine and the Vidispine Server Agent (VSA). MD5, CRC32 and CRC32c checksums are supported.

If you’re in for some beta functionality you should try out the Export Templates. Vidispine says the intention is to make it easier for users to programmatically tailor output to distribution standards.

Export templates have been made available as beta functionality in this version. Beta means that syntax may change somewhat for the final implementation. This version is also a call for feedback for other functionality that you would like to see.

Other improvements:

  • Colour profiles can now be detected from XMP metadata. Several profiles are now bundled with the transcoder.
  • Full-text queries can now be used in search operators. This allows you to for example find collections matching one text query and that contain items matching another text query.
  • The collection metadata resource has been updated with a number of endpoints that were previously only available for the item metadata.
  • The position and style of burnt in timecodes can now be customized per preset.

You can also download the release notes in the Vidispine Partner Portal.

All editions of Vidispine 4.5 are available now. There are 30-day developer trials on AWS Marketplace and Microsoft Azure Marketplace or visit the company website if you are already running Vidispine to update to 4.5 with some simple commands.
