BVE 2017: Telestream debuts Vantage Ingest Manager for content retrieval
Telestream (stand N22), has announced the introduction of Vantage Ingest Manager. The software-based system streamlines content handling for broadcasters and cable operators. It provides a complete set of tools that enable personnel in any department to ingest, review, approve, transcode and reconcile inventory versus required media to make sure content is ready for air when needed.
Telestream reports that Ingest Manager can achieve significant reductions in core broadcast complexity by improving content processing time and reducing errors. This means fewer misplaced or ‘bad’ files and much more efficient content approval workflows — all managed from a Vantage content database.
Significantly, Ingest Manager reduces both the complexity of these workflows and their dependence on technical engineering staff to support them. The system manages varying formats from different origination points. It matches metadata to appropriate workflows and end-points and it provides review and trim user interfaces for multi-department content management.
Ingest Manager empowers non-engineering staff to quickly identify and locate missing content. Employing a purpose-designed ‘Dublist Portal’ the system shows up-to-date status of incoming file availability. And being based on Telestream’s Vantage platform brings maximum performance and scalability: Ingest Manager operates seamlessly on both CPU and Telestream Lightspeed platforms.
