Splitting your media into individual components improves automation, reduces costs and increases the volume of media you can process. So how do you switch to componentized working when all of your workflows use interleaved media? In this continuing series of educational video clips, Bruce Devlin explains the technology behind automated content processing workflows and IMF.
Componentized media has video in video files, audio in audio files and captions in caption files. Componentizing makes it easier to create the right title, with the right media, at the right time.
Some environments, like AVC and ProRes, interleave video and audio components. How do you get to the componentized domain? Moving from traditional to automated workflows presents many challenges. A pragmatic alternative to changing everything at once is to consider individual deliverables, so that resources and business justification can easiliy be communicated between engineering and management.
An example would be a ProRes input for conversion to IMF.
This approach has advanatges:
- It is a simple use case.
- A simple process is easy to debug and document.
- A running process gives engineers and operators experience with automation.
- The cost-benefit can be easily demonstrated.
- Once the process is generting reveneue it becomes esier to justify the engineering resources to expand the automation environment.
