Broadcast Content Management And Automation
By David Kirk
The most important single development in broadcast content management over the past two decades has been the migration from library-stored tapes and cassettes to server-based data networks. In recent years, the cost of that transition has become universally affordable through the implementation of standard ‘enterprise’ computer components. Deep archiving still relies on tape (usually data cartridges under robotic control) but content is downloaded via a third-party edit controller or playout automation system. Time Tailor comes equipped with SDI/ HD-SDI input and outputs including embedded audio support, AES/EBU digital audio inputs and outputs, and a genlock reference input (black-burst or tri-level). Closed Caption data integrity is maintained throughout, accurately matched to the timereduced programme. Axon has added 3D capabilities to its SynView multiviewer. Two multiviewer inputs are locked to each other and displayed sideby-side. Stereoscopic displays will then output a 3D image. Tallies, borders and UMD information are processed for 3D display. Building4Media’s FORK production suite integrates with Sony’s XMPilot to automate the workflow between newsroom control systems and production. A producer in the newsroom begins by creating assigned stories. The story information is passed from the newsroom system to FORK which tells reporters what story they are shooting via information displayed on their mobile phone and in their camcorders. Reporters can add shot information or other planning metadata. When the video content is

transferred into the FORK production suite, the clips are automatically put into the correct projects, all planning metadata being mapped into the FORK database. The stories are linked to their content and can be sorted, searched and used for intelligent automation and organisation. The field metadata can also be used in the editing process with the FORK proxy editor or with Apple’s Final Cut Pro. The finished clip duration and status are conveyed back to the newsroom system rundown and to playout via the FORK production suite’s Live Assist module. After being aired, the FORK archive maintains all of the metadata and proxy clips for future access, while allowing high-resolution clips to be stored offline. Dalet has enhanced its Sports Factory with new production tools, fully integrated within a content management platform. New capabilities include logging, playby-play highlights and playback, and instant replay with multiple camera angles and slow motion. Incoming content is logged once and made immediately available for use in programmes and packages. Digital Rapids has expanded its range of encoders for live multi-screen delivery. The new offerings include StreamZ Live IP which allows content owners to repurpose live incoming

feeds. It supports single- or multiprogram transport stream inputs with H.264 or MPEG-2 compressed video. StreamZ Live IP supports HTTP dynamic streaming, IP multicast and multicast fusion with peer-assisted networking with Adobe Flash Media Server 4 software; HTTP Live Streaming for Apple iPhone and iPad, and Microsoft Internet Information Services Smooth Streaming. DNF Controls’ AnyWhere Interface Box provides eight opto-isolated GPI ports, eight relay contact closure GPOs, one RS422/RS232 serial port and one 10 BaseT Ethernet port. It supports GPI-to-GPO, GPI-to-serial, GPI-to-Ethernet, and GPI-to-SNMP control; serial-to-GPO, Ethernet-toGPO, and SNMP-to-GPO monitoring; and serial-to-Ethernet and serialto-SNMP conversions; all of which are user-configurable. Setup is via a standard IP browser, configuration being saved to internal static RAM. Evertz’ Mediator SC, introduced at NAB in April, is a multichannel playout system built on the same software and platforms used in Pharos Mediator Enterprise. It delivers content to multiple platforms while enabling the user to track and manage media assets for any size of system, from small TV stations to remote playout. Also introduced at NAB 2011, the Evertz OvertureRT

to disk server when required rather than being carried by hand from one room to another. The only way to lose content today is by accidental deletion. That said, nothing can be considered safely archived unless it is stored on at least three separate devices. So what’s new in this part of the market? The following summary is based on new or enhanced equipment announced at the NAB show in April, or due for release at IBC in September. AmberFin has announced native support for the Apple ProRes codec to its iCR product range. This gives iCR users a new high-quality 10-bit HD codec option for automated ingest and quality control when working with Apple Final Cut Pro workflows and for exporting to iTunes. ProRes is an option available as part of iCR V7.00. Aveco has integrated Prime Image’s Time Tailor into a real-time playout workflow enabling operators to add commercial time during programme playout without disrupting the transmission schedule. Time Tailor adjusts programme duration in realtime using a process that is claimed to have little effect on content quality. The amount of additional time created and the time duration over which it is created are programmable using the front panel of the Time Tailor or
