NOA to redefine Archive Asset Management (AAM) at IBC
Vienna, AUSTRIA — 1ST August 2016
At IBC 2016, NOA will demonstrate a broad suite of sophisticated yet easy to use and easy to integrate products that redefine how broadcasters and archivisits can store, manipulate and retrieve valuable archive materials. NOA describes this complete capability as “Archive Asset Management” (“AAM”).
“We will announce Item History for mediARC, enabling media archivists to more easily ensure and verify the accuracy of their database,” said Christophe Kummer, Managing Partner of NOA. “With this significant extension to mediARC’s capability, we believe we have redefined what archive asset management is and does. We have taken it to the next level.
New Products for IBC
VideoPlayer for jobDB™
This new VideoPlayer allows users to set up workflows for the ingest, reshaping, and analysis of media for archiving, re-transcoding, or other complex processes. NOA VideoPlayer is a comprehensive tool designed to respond to the specific needs of archiving professionals, providing them with the functionality, speed, and ease-of-use that can substantially improve accuracy, quality, and productivity.
NOA VideoPlayer supports a range of display modes that allow the user to navigate with greater freedom and precision through ingested material. A range of video settings such as de-interlacing and field order adjustment ensure correct replay behaviour and later transcoding of material. Easy segmenting of ingested material, together with quick navigation via shortcuts, improves and refines quality control activities in jobDB.
mediARC Item History
Item History is an important enhancement to mediARC archiving solution that enables media archivists to more easily ensure and verify the accuracy of their database. Item History allows cataloguing teams and supervisors to ascertain not only who changed an archive item and when – but also, exactly what was changed. This allows users to easily and quickly review previous version of an item in the event that, for example, it was erroneously updated.
Existing users will automatically receive Item History as a free upgrade to their installed systems.
Broadcasters and archivists need an archive asset management system that can ingest, describe, archive and deliver content: NOA’s mediARC fulfils that requirement. Based on NOA’s proven, easy-to-use, open technologies, mediARC is a flexible framework for media archive management that makes the whole process easier and more efficient.
mediARC answers the need for structured and flexible content management that has to last for decades, and comes with a range of powerful tools that can digest petabytes of information. It can handle the complex structures needed for proper description and efficient use of an archive’s content, so that media data can be linked to metadata and storage at a granular level.
Developed in cooperation with dedicated broadcasters, the mediARC system is designed to meet requirements in three fundamental areas – metadata (description of the media content), media storage and conversion, and workflows (controlling, creating, and processing information).
