Automated Workflows From Ingest To Delivery

News Image
At IBC, ROOT6 Technology showed the latest iteration of ContentAgent, its file based workflow management and orchestration system, using traditional demo pods and theatre-style demonstrations.

In a series of focused presentations, visitors discovered how ContentAgent's automated workflows dramatically increase productivity from ingest to delivery.

Enhanced ingest using CardAgent, an easy-to-use interface for non-technical operators, enables browsing, logging, and viewing camera card and file-based media for automated workflows.

Understand how ContentAgent's workflow engine and metadata management can drive automatic tasks and decisions with ease. Comprehensive delivery workflows are demonstrated including support for AMWA AS-11, AS-10 and ARD_ZDF_HDF.

Delivery workflows are complemented by automated QC quality management and Insert Edit technology (including video, audio and metadata updating), enabling speedy last minute changes prior to delivery.

WAN acceleration workflows (including Aspera and FileCatalyst) are on show together with NexGuard Civolution forensic watermarking, allowing content to be traced from the moment it leaves the camera.

Also featured is automated resolution-independent transcoding for SD, HD, UHD, 4K and motion compensated frame-rate conversion (and scaling.)

ContentAgent is now Platform Certified by Avid and extensive automated Avid ingest and delivery workflows are demonstrated for the MediaCentral platform.
