Tedial offers up software-based content solutions for IBC attendees
Tedial will be on hand at IBC with software-based content and content management business solutions that maximise operational efficiency and profitability to broadcast and other media organisations. Tedial has more than 14 years’ experience and has grown to employ more than 100 people as its unique media management solutions have helped more than 50 broadcasters and media companies worldwide.
Tedial will showcase Tedial Evolution, an enhanced version of its Media IT platform, for the first time in Europe at IBC 2015. Tedial Evolution significantly extends 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.
New features include a completely new user experience designed to speed both manual and automated workflows. Built on the solid, tried and trusted MAM platform, the new HTML5 User interface keeps frequently used tools on the screen for improved performance. True multiscreen (smartphone, tablet, etc.) and multi-platform (IOS, Android, Windows, etc.) operations allow users to manage tasks, validate media or monitor workflows status from mobile devices. The interface is fully customisable for individual preferences or work assignments, including different metadata views and screen configurations, with an integrated activity monitor and unified view of archives, workflows and business processes. And the new interface features a configurable ”logging” board with shortcuts for actions and actors, specially designed for sports and live events. Inside the User interface is an improved media player with audio waveforms, thumbnails and locators displayed in the timeline.
Also new is a Search/Indexing engine that has been extended to organise/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.
Also also, harnessing the power of a true Object Relational Database, a new set of tools provides a service to manage group entities, a multi-level classification schema (collections, albums, series, projects, rights, delivery packages, etc.) based on dynamic, changing relations. Employing the power of a real Object Relational Database, entities are logged as assets, which can now be a repository for all shared information. Assets are categorized as members of multiple entities, according to the user needs.
