CAPER: Tedial To Demo New Features of Evolution Architecture
Tedial will bring its multiple award-winning Tedial Evolution to CAPER, the premiere exhibition of professional equipment and services aimed at the Argentinian broadcast community.
Tedial will demonstrate Tedial Evolution, an IABM Game Changer award-winner, and recipient of a IBC 2015 Best of Show award, at CAPER on Booth # G-10. CAPER will be held from October 28 – 30 in Pavilions 4 and 5 of the Centro Costa Salguero in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Tedial Evolution, a well-integrated IT architecture, provides broadcasters’ and content owners with advanced Media IT tools for multi-site Enterprise MAM and Business Process Workflow. The platform significantly extends MAM functionality by providing new services to surf/explore archives and improve integration between archive and workflow engines to reinforce a collaborative environment.
Discover Tedial at CAPER 2015:
Tedial Evolution offers a completely new user experience designed to speed both manual and automated workflows. Built on Tedial’s 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 customizable 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. The new interface also 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.
NEW Search/Indexing Engine
The 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.
True Object Relational Database
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.
All information related to an asset can be explored from the Mediaset view including metadata, media files, attached documents, logical versions, processing or delivery orders. Moreover, related assets (physical versions, promos, parts) and entities can be explored from the original master asset wherever they are located or associated. As part of Tedial’s evolution to support DAM operations, full audio support is now available in the basic MAM. Tedial Evolution offers tight Integration with rights management systems to ensure media is rights aware.
Extended Business Process Management Services
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.
Tedial Evolution Embraces IMF standard
Always adopting SMPTE and IT standards as the best way to address the need to future proof the development of world-class software tools, Tedial has implemented the IMF schema within its MAM and workflow systems, as well as the AMWA FIMS AS-11 specifications. Tedial supports the SPMTE standards of MXF, BXF and AXF and the BPMN 2.0 Notation standard for enhanced interoperability.
