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. With our solution you can digitize your media supply chain for increased efficiency, automation & productivity.
A digital media supply chain (DMSC) describes any production and distribution workflow system where media files and their associated metadata needs to be managed based on the current business model. The services present in a DMSC can be very similar in many production and distribution workflows. However, the actual customers can operate in very different areas such as sports, VOD / LIVE provider, banking, Universities and more.
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
A DMSC will take care of all the processes in the background that can be automatically executed while making the actual media files including metadata available to any kind of human interaction such as search, manual quality control, conform and editing.
In any large organization, users need to be able to operate in an efficient environment – something easier said than done many times. Manually trying to find and relocate media files, edit metadata, upload files to the correct locations depending on the customer & keeping track of codecs and formats are everyday tasks in many media-based workflows. All these actions take time, not to mention the workload on the employees.
For this reason, we have designed Vidinet – the Vidispine version of a media supply chain solution. With its fully customizable metadata framework and transcode functionality, the Vidispine digital media supply chain architecture adapts into the requirements of any native cloud, on-premise or hybrid cloud environment.
When launching the Vidispine API as a service in Vidinet, you do not only get a fully developed Media Asset Management System (MAM) but also a complete developer platform making Vidinet the most flexible and efficient solution in the industry.
Today, more and more customers recognize the advantages of a centralized cloud-based DMSC. With Vidinet, you can add and manage the services of your choice to your MAM by simply adding them directly from our media service platform on the cloud. Vidinet makes it possible to dynamically scale your DMSC depending on your requirements. No upfront costs – you only pay for what you use.
Once you are set up, you are ready to go.
By using the Vidispine Development Toolkit, you can build the most efficient user interfaces for each production point.
