Tedial’s Media Amigo Provides Shared Content Service

Tedial, a provider of Media Asset Management (MAM), Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) and Business Process Management (BPM) software has announced that FORTA (Federation of Spanish Regional Television Channels) has installed Tedial’s Media Amigo cloud-based platform. FORTA is an association of public broadcasting networks covering 12 regions across Spain.
Tedial’s Media Amigo allows content to be shared between each broadcaster in the association across all their respective sites. Each site has independent systems that use different technology, vendors, metadata models and file formats that are not mutually compatible. To enable the sharing of content each broadcaster subscribes to specific content types or relevant media groups. Once video and non-video files become available they are automatically delivered to subscribers in their own working format. Users can also search for media already made available in the system and request copies of it. Again, when the files are received they arrive automatically in the native format of the recipient.
To enable the sharing of media, FORTA acquired a dedicated IP network connection between FORTA Central System in Madrid (1Gbps) and each of the affiliated broadcasters (100Mbps). This provides the means for the automatic delivery of media files using the subscription service.
The Media Amigo platform uses Tedial’s Media Process Manager’s (MPM) media tools to carry out on-the-fly file processing that may be required for the recipient, including codecs, wrappers and aspect ratio. This guarantees media compatibility for every single subscriber.
Rafael Dubois, Tedial’s Sales and Marketing Director said: “FORTA has overcome the challenge faced by broadcasters and media organisations that have successfully digitised their archives: how to distribute content to the outside world. Using Tedial technology, FORTA has a system in place that enables media to be shared among its members. This is a proven working system that is generating a great deal of interest among broadcasters all over the world.”
