​IPV Curator MAM Supports Metadata and 4K

IPV says it will demonstrate the latest advances in its Curator Media Asset Management system at the 2016 NAB show.

Curator is an archive management environment where media assets are migrated through storage tiers dependant on their age, temporal relevance and priority. The system ensures that assets reside on the most appropriate storage media from on premise systems to the Cloud. Aligned with this storage is predictive retrieval, which provides a number of facilities to different scenarios: in a dynamic news-based environment, Curator allows re-use of media assets and so increasing their value in a fast turnaround workflow. Retrospectively, Curator enables the re-use/re-purposing of media assets on the web and within other programmes or advertising campaigns.

“If you can’t find a media asset when you need it, then effectively you don’t own it,” stated Nigel Booth, EVP Business Development. “With the latest enhancements to Curator, we empower users across an organisation to find and retrieve content wherever they are and from within multiple storage platforms quickly and intuitively.”

IPV has developed a number of configurable interfaces to the system, including third-party platforms such as Adobe Premier Pro CC which will be announced at NAB.

4K support will be another focus for IPV at NAB. “Curator’s codecs are format agnostic, so 4K support is straightforward for this system,” said Booth. “At NAB, IPV will demonstrate the sophistication of its 4K proposition, as well as revealing its strategic UHD roadmap to 4K, 8K and beyond.”
