Previously the realm of only the largest enterprises, Mediaflex CI for content intelligence provides the ability to design workflows and use business analytics to derive valuable information. More than just automating processes, the use of analytics means that the system itself can make intelligent decisions based on business rules developed by the organisation, delivering huge productivity benefits. www.rtw.com www.albistechnologies.com MD, the leading provider of asset management systems for digital and physical assets, will use IBC 2013 to focus on the way that its Mediaflex platform offers a new, hands-on approach to developing workflows, not least to support the rapidly evolving multi-platform distribution environment in which content has to be prepared in a number of formats, resolutions and wrappers. Mediaflex CI is at the heart of FAST, the enterprise-wide file-based infrastructure now implemented at Irish national broadcaster RT, and is ready to transform service- oriented broadcast architectures worldwide. FAST and the TMD asset management and workflow engine is a finalist for the coveted IBC 2013 Innovation Award. The company will show LYNXdr and LYNXlocal at IBC2013. LYNXdr is a hosted disaster recovery service that allows global media enterprises to centralize critical assets and consolidate operations, and LYNXlocal is a simple extension to LYNX that operates locally as an appliance, caching cloud content and providing integration to specialized systems if needed. LYNXlocal is billed as a service element at a low monthly rate. The same intelligent decision- making makes Mediaflex CI a particularly powerful workflow engine in multi-platform delivery. Rules can be established which drive content through transcoding and transwrapping farms to automatically generate content which is quality assured and has the right metadata in the right places. Only by harnessing real productivity efficiencies through flexible automated workflows can broadcasters and content owners achieve the commercial targets necessary for multi-platform success. fpdigital.com www.tmd.tv Front Porch Digital Stand: 7.D14 LYNX(SM) from Front Porch Digital is the industry’s first enterprise-scale cloud implementation of content storage management (CSM).
