Pronology Employs Media Asset Management For America's Got Talent

News Image
Pronology is employing its media asset management system for the ninth season of the reality-television competition America's Got Talent (AGT). Produced by FremantleMedia for NBC, the show generates four hours of primetime television every week.

Returning to New York's historic Radio City Music Hall for a second season, the AGT production team used the Pronology system to streamline the movement and organisation of media clips produced for each episode.
Using a fiber optic connection between the venue and the post-production facility, editors working on Avid Media Composer/ISIS systems and using an Avid ISIS storage system could access any media clip, live, as it was captured.
The Pronology ingest controller creates low-resolution proxy files, which users can access through a Web browser. The files, automatically organised by show, day and performer in an easy-to-understand folder structure, were frame accurate to the hi-res originals stored in both the Avid and EVS systems.
Editing done on any proxy file was instantly translated to the high-resolution versions for use on the show. All members of the production team, along with Fremantle Media executives, could access, view and annotate recordings from anywhere in the world.
"It provided a simple interface for us that streamlined the task of allowing our producers, who are scattered all over the world, to view the days and days of rehearsal recordings in a cloud-based system," says Zach Jarosz, Senior Vice President of Post-Production for FremantleMedia.
"It was extremely advantageous for us to be able to have members of our team at our home base in Los Angeles with instant access to all of the content recorded in New York. It helped keep the hectic AGT program schedule on track and on budget."
