Easier Content Management Deployment With Pharos Mediator 4

Content management has moved up a step with news that the Pharos Mediator 4 platform now enables content management to be rolled-out in easy stages.
A new range of Mediator 4 Task Packs cover specific roles in each area of operations from ingest to playout.
Operations covered include Library, Ingest, QC, Promotions, Compliance, Approvals, Playout and New Media (VOD, IPTV and Mobile),
Each Task Pack presents a sequential set of tasks empowering operators to manage their workload as efficiently as possible. Every Task Pack is an enterprise license for a specific area of operations and can be used concurrently by any number of Mediator users.
Russell Grute at Pharos said: "Content management systems need to work across the enterprise, unifying operations and making content searchable, accessible and usable by everyone.
"Every user from the library to playout is affected during installation or migration. Rolling out a content management solution is often considered to be a big problem and all too often seen as an impractical project.
"Mediator 4 offers a step by step approach to rolling content management and workflow across the enterprise. With a powerful core architecture and Task Packs for each area of operations, our projects teams are deploying Mediator systems in weeks and not months."
Mediator 4's secure and efficient workflow aligns users, roles and tasks in all areas of operations. Every Mediator user has desktop Browse and Search Tools where required. Mediator 4 also provides an audit trail of actions and workflow states whilst managing all underlying file transfers and third-party infrastructure such as routing, storage and transcode sub-systems.
New Task Packs for IBC include New Media Workflow and Subtitling Workflow. Mediator can manage content for VOD, mobile and internet based delivery can be managed side by side with linear distribution. This option deals with all the necessary file transfers and transcoding. It can generate and recover additional platform specific content such as stills for an EPG or metadata such as a VOD synopsis.
Mediator 4 directly integrates the management of subtitles and voice-overs for international distribution at the optimal stage in the workflow.
Pharos will be at Stand 10.D31 at IBC2008.
