Tedial’s New Tedial Evolution Offers Enhanced MAM
Tedial (Booth N1937) will launch Tedial Evolution, an enhanced version of its Media IT platform, significantly extending MAM functionality with advanced search/indexing tools, new services to surf/explore archives, and improved integration between archive and workflow engines to reinforce a collaborative environment.
“Since 2001, Tedial’s MAM and media IT solutions have helped broadcasters and media companies worldwide improve efficiency, enhance productivity, and optimize creativity,” explains Jay Batista, GM, U.S. operations. “Tedial Evolution takes media management to a whole new level. Evolution provides a business platform that marries logistics planning and media preparation into a complete supply chain, enabling customers to grow their businesses even as the business of media consumption evolves at an unprecedented speed.”
Tedial Evolution offers a user experience designed to speed both manual and automated workflows. Built on the Tarsys MAM platform, the new HTML5 user interface keeps frequently used tools on the screen for improved performance. True multiscreen (smartphone, tablet, etc.) and multiplatform (iOS, Android, Windows, etc.) operations allow users to manage tasks, validate media, or monitor workflows status from mobile devices.
The Tarsys search/indexing engine has been extended to organize/search collections and other object-related entities, to indexing very large databases via shared indexes, and to automatically tag descriptive metadata based on scoring of texts using stop words. The system now autocompletes user keyword inputs and generates suggestions for every entry as it is typed. It offers new methods to surf the MAM through “departments” using an “Amazon.com-style” facets category and/or group entities. The system can also auto-tag, relating assets based on most relevant tags.
Harnessing the power of a true object relational database, a new set of tools manages group entities, with a multi-level classification scheme based on dynamic, changing relations.
All information related to an asset can be explored from the Mediaset view: metadata, media files, attached documents, logical versions, processing or delivery orders.
Business Process Management services have been extended to reinforce collaboration, allowing several users to work with the same asset. New collaborative processes can be defined using an extended library of foundation workflows and activities.
