Vidispine's cloud-native platform VidiNet is a service portal for managing content and for hosting media services such as the VidiCore API, VidiCoder, AWS Elemental Mediaconvert and Bitmovin to mention a few. This whole architecture is designed to act both as a cloud-native MAM system ready to go, and as a developer platform in the cloud. We call this ecosystem, VidiNet.
The Vidispine MAM solution was the perfect choice for building a media supply chain, flexible enough to meet the workflow challenges and requirements that LOGIC and AKK were facing.
When an operator uploads a clip to the MAM this initiates VidiCoder, the transcoder workhorse in the Vidispine media supply chain, to immediately convert the incoming video formats from uploaded ProRes versions to H264 versions for various multi-format distribution workflows. Due to AKK’s need for different users, the MAM system enables different user types, which apart from the administrator role, contains two main types of users:
• The operator – responsible for uploading clips and content to the MAM system
• The journalist – qualified to download content for news publication
The journalists log on to their accounts and depending on credentials, get access to highlights, interviews, statistics and more needed to update news articles as the sport events proceeds.
