Tedial Tackles IMF Workflows and Storage Virtualization at SMPTE 17 Australia

Tedial has announced it will take its IMF solution and new Augmented STorage (AST) system to SMPTE 17 Conference & Exhibition in Australia, the region’s premier forum for Broadcast, Media and Entertainment technology. The solutions will be demonstrated in Magna Systems and Engineering’s at the event, which will be held from 18 – 21 July in the International Convention Centre located in Sydney.

In addition to tackling IMF and augmented storage, Tedial will highlight its ability to provide full operation in the cloud, and showcase its capability to monitor statistics and reporting via real- time dashboards.

IMF End-to-End Workflow for Real World IMF Applications

Tedial’s IMF solution is a real-world end-to-end workflow that applies SMPTE IMF standards to provide a reliable, cost saving SaaS and proven cloud solution. The architecture supports UHD and HDR, provides adopters with enhanced multi-versioning support, and can address late delivered components for previous watermarked versions.

Tedial executives will demonstrate how to apply IMF strategies to real world distribution problems, and discuss how IMF saves money, provides greater efficiency and supports new technologies in its role as a true “Media Factory”; a system that automates management of thousands of deliverable formats via a single workflow and a single operator’s screen.

Tedial Augmented STorage (AST)

Tedial Augmented Storage (AST), a new concept in storage virtualization systems and winner of IABM’s NAB Game Changer Award 2017 in the Storagecategory, brings content owners a safe, reliable and cost-efficient storage system for cloud workflows and hybrid scenarios as it virtualizes file locations. AST can transparently manage the same content in multiple locations for customers managing a multi-site, distributed operation by automating task assignment and data transfer across multiple sites as needed.

This heterogeneous storage ecosystem handles any type of multimedia content regardless of its physical location and facilitates media operations, such as editing based on timecode or efficient management of large UHD or low/lossless compression files across multiple sites and around the globe.

The platform is built around a vastly resilient and scalable “Cloud First” design, allowing facilities to grow according to their needs, dynamically adapting to workload peaks. And with AST, security is a top priority, with content protected by requiring authentication. Different groups are assigned different access levels, and retention policies can be easily defined to protect the content and limit the access.

AST nodes provide local operation for the content stored in that site, allowing cloud-independency and enabling content searching, retrieval and archival if needed, with automatic synchronization.

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 easily integrate with third-party systems maximizing simplicity and efficiency.

Full Operation in The Cloud

The cloud is another key focus for Tedial. The Company has been providing native support for cloud and cloud hybrid operations for over six years with multiple installations around the globe.

As a result of the continuous improvements in its solutions, Tedial’s full operation in the Cloud now features multi-resolution MPEG-DASH to enable full Web GUI without media browsing issues, Adobe Premier Pro CC, and After Effects CC integration. Content is cached locally, enabling minimal transfers of local high-res operations such as content repurposing, corrections, etc., making content available transparently for the end-users, regardless of location.

Company executives are on-hand to explain how Tedial’s system architecture has been tailored for the Cloud with a flexible infrastructure and native S3 support.

Real-time Dashboards: Statistics and Reporting

Tedial is also demonstrating media and content management solutions designed to maximize business efficiency and profitability. The company’s real-time monitoring of key performance indicators and reporting tools measure business efficiency and capacity, allowing users to track business processes and help customers reach their goals.
