The Next Generation Media Supply Chain

Vidispine provides content owners with a fully managed media supply chain backbone, enabling you to adapt to changing media industry needs and business requirements quickly. 

Let's talk about how media and metadata can be centralized, organized, and distributed. 

Maybe you recognize some of the below examples from your current environment? 

  • Content acquisition – Media files and metadata entering the system in an ingest or manual process 
  • Manual or automatic QC 
  • Media files and metadata are analyzed, transcoded and transformed in preparation for a distribution process 
  • Media files and associated metadata are distributed online and to archive 
  • Player statistics needs to be managed and analyzed

Vidispine has you covered.  

From the point of any type of media including metadata entering your media supply chain, you need to understand, be in control and make the optimal use of the information that is directly or indirectly associated with your audio and video. In addition to this, by AI services, you will be able to understand the actual content of your media acquired.

If you can do this successfully, you have a very good fundament for populating and make important decisions in all the remaining production points of your media supply chain.

Many production platforms are also based on a unified video and audio format for production, cloud workflow, and archival reasons. The VidiCoder service decodes and encodes all standard broadcast/film and distribution formats and is as such a fundamental building block in the Media Supply chain.

The Content ecosystem and the media supply chain

The Vidispine Content ecosystem forms a community for where customers and partners can integrate with all the Vidispine platforms, applications, and services. As a customer or a partner in the Content ecosystem, you will gain access to essential services and applications for orchestrating your media workflows using VidiFlow as part of the cloud-native media services platform VidiNet. 

Use the MediaIngest or build your own ingest solution using the VidiCoder and VidiCore services found in the VidiNet platform.  

The VidiCore service is the heart of the MAM system architecture and the media supply chain offered in the Content ecosystem. The VidiCore service allows for advanced metadata transformation and automation in the remaining media supply chain. AI-driven services for analyzing speech to text and image objects will significantly enhance the knowledge of your media archive and allow for detailed access to information based on time spans of media. 

Today’s media supply chains need to be much more flexible to follow the dynamics of the market. The VidiNet cloud-native media services platform in the Content ecosystem will allow for instant upscales to meet sudden production and or viewing peaks – as well as quick downscales of services if the market so demands. It is worth noting that although the cloud-native VidiNet platform has also been designed with the reality of existing on-premise solutions in mind.  

The VidiNet media service VSA (VidiCore Server Agent), your local on-premise storage, will be a natural part of the Vidispine Media Supply Chain.
