Tedial Launches Storage Management System AST

MAM specialist Tedial released Evolution Augmented Storage (AST), which it describes as a new concept in storage virtualization systems. The firm also introduced Multiverse, an integration between Pebble Broadcast Systems’ Marina Automation and Tedial’s Evolution MAM.

The Evolution Augmented STorage (AST) says Tedial, “provides a heterogeneous ecosystem to handle any type of multimedia content regardless of its physical location.”

Treating content as an object that includes an “innovative minimum metadata packet” allows storage to operate independent of MAM solutions, able to archive and publish content and integrate with third party systems maximizing simplicity and efficiency.

“AST virtualizes file locations enabling multi-site operations, cloud workflows or hybrid scenarios. For those customers managing a multi-site, distributed operation, AST can transparently manage the same content in multiple locations, automating task assignment and data transfer across multiple sites as needed,” states the firm.

Multiverse is a integration between Pebble Broadcast Systems’ Marina Automation and Tedial’s Evolution MAM that delivers flexible cross-platform media preparation and delivery. The platform creates a workflow between the MAM, playout systems and VOD services, efficiently solving distribution challenges for linear and non-linear channels.

“Because it processes media once for all platforms, Multiverse unifies and speeds on-demand and linear content workflows and allows easy management of media assets and automation of tasks such as live production turnaround to VOD while significantly reducing operational costs by minimizing the number of systems required,” says Tedial.

For media asset versioning and replacement workflows, different versions of media assets for playout can be created and automatically added to Evolution MAM, which in turn triggers Marina Automation to delete old media from its playlist and transfer new assets to playout, all without human intervention.
