IPV Curator To Support File-Based Workflow

IPV, the largest independent supplier of low bitrate, frame-accurate video technology to the broadcast and professional video sectors, is installing its Curator tapeless workflow solution at Infront Italy to provide greater flexibility for its entire sports production workflow - from ingest to transmission. A division of Infront Sports & Media AG, the international full service sports marketing company based in Switzerland, Infront Italy handles the rights for the Italian football league (Lega Calcio), Italy’s football governing body that permits the transmission of digital archive football materials to Italian broadcasters.
Part of an integrated workflow based on Harris Invenio digital asset management; NEXIO servers, Velocity ESX editing, and ADC playout automation, Infront Italy is commissioning the IPV Curator system during the current Italian football league season. The system is being installed by Italian systems integrator, Media Design and is expected to go on air in late August 2010 at the start of the new football season.
At Infront Italy live material will be ingested onto Harris NEXIO servers and logged using the Invenio digital asset management system. This rich metadata can then be searched by users across the operation to find a particular scene or information they require to produce the programme package. The IPV Process Engine detects the presence of a file on the NEXIO SAN and simultaneously creates a live Curator production proxy, complete with the associated metadata about the file attached to each clip. These live clips are made available to the regional bureaus via a dedicated Internet streaming facility provided by Telecomm Italia. Using Curator operators at these regional bureaus can edit the material and create EDLs. The localised package can then be conformed using the NEXIO InstantOnline III (IOL) automatic conforming engine while Curator’s XCode engine transcodes the finished piece for localised distribution or transmission using the Harris ADC playout automation system. Metadata for the completed item is then imported back into the Invenio system.
"Curator is ideally suited to live applications such as news and sports — and the solution at Infront Italy is a prime example of how this system can provide the immediacy and flexibility required in a mission-critical live production environment," said Nigel Booth, Executive Vice President for Sales and Marketing at IPV. "Users like the simplicity of the system and the fact that they can access files, with the associated metadata, and easily manipulate these files right on the desktop - this is key to the wide acceptance of the system."
