Wegener Expands MediaPlan

Wegener Corporation introduced
two new MediaPlan input/output content creation stations: MediaPlan i/o
Contributor and MediaPlan i/o Professional. Both new WEGENER systems offer
advanced tools for creating and preparing media content, including digitizing,
encoding, editing, and controlling the quality of media assets prior to
uploading them into the MediaPlan content management system. The MediaPlan
content management system is part of WEGENER’s end-to-end solution for
file-based content distribution.
WEGENER’s new companion
MediaPlan i/o Contributor and MediaPlan i/o Professional content creation
stations complement and expand the capabilities inherent in WEGENER’s family of
file-based products. These products include: the WEGENER iPump 6400,
iPump 6420, iPump 562 media servers, Compel Network Control and Compel
Conditional Access for dynamic command and monitoring of multi-site video,
audio and data networks.
“We’re extremely pleased
to introduce these new members to our family of private video, audio, and data
broadcast solutions,” said
L. Mountain,
President and COO of WEGENER. “These new content creation stations give
content creators added flexibility when preparing media assets for
distribution. Our customers can quickly upload content, along with
valuable metadata information to MediaPlan CM, and then to COMPEL for fast,
automated distribution.”
The Professional station
may be used to create high-quality HD and SD video assets, while minimizing
transmission and storage bandwidth. It offers a variety of video
compression options including MPEG-4/h.264 video compression. The Contributor
station offers basic MPEG-2 video encoding capabilities for smaller enterprise
networks or networks managing multiple contribution sites. Any single network may “mix and match” Contributor and Professional stations
for greater flexibility and efficiency with a WEGENER iPump network.
Both MediaPlan i/o
content creation stations encode either realtime or tape-based video into
digital files compatible with playout on an edge iPump media server. Both
platforms allow files to be assembled together with extensive metadata
descriptive information to form digital ‘assets.’
