Pharos to introduce five new systems to US market at NAB

British company Pharos Communications, a developer of software architecture for broadcast process management, will introduce five new systems to the US market at this year's NAB.
The new items are the Mediator Enterprise media asset manager system; the Exception alarm monitoring system; the Reflection browse system; the Transcoder file converter; and the Rewrapper MPEG2 processor.
Mediator Enterprise has been developed from the Mediator media management system and integrates media asset management, browsing and workflow control. It can perform automated ingest and transfer, automated transcoding and low-resolution previewing under web browser control. According to the company, it has a greatly expanded ability to link disparate systems, to audit library content bookings and tape movements, and to handle the distribution of content for multi-channel multi-language services.
The Exception alarm monitoring system is designed for use in television production studios, MCR environments, postproduction facilities or playout centres. It provides flexible notification of alarm monitoring signals from third party equipment.
Reflection is an MPEG4-based browse system which is claimed to have a wide range of applications in programme production, scheduling, compliance and transmission. Designed to operate in tandem with a video server, it creates MPEG4 copies of all stored clips and any new incoming video files.
The Pharos Transcoder is claimed to enable video files to be converted quickly and easily between a wide range of file formats. Applications include down-converting broadcast -quality content for Internet-based distribution, up-converting internet-delivered ENG feeds, and a wide variety of file-format interchange tasks in programme production, postproduction and playout.
Rewrapper is said to enable MPEG2 metadata to be matched precisely between different video servers. It is claimed to be ideal wherever a mixed family of video servers is in use, such as a television post-production house or broadcast playout centre, or where full MPEG2 file interchange is required between servers and edit stations or graphic suites.
