NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR I n the month that digital files become the preferred method of delivery for television programmes in the UK, it will come as a blessed relief to many in both post and production that one of the biggest bugbears of file-based delivery – how to deal with insert editing - may have been solved, just in the nick of time. It didn’t generate a lot of attention but at IBC Root6 unveiled insert edit functionality for its ContentAgent workfl ow management system. The inability to drop changes into a fi le without re-transcoding or re-wrapping the fi le – especially for last minute editorial changes – was one of the major challenges of digital delivery. With tape, inserting a revised credit, for example, was easy. With fi les it was time consuming and costly. Root6 appear to have solved that problem. There will be many, many post-production managers the country over rejoicing in this news. No one wants to try to persuade the creative team to fi nish programmes earlier ‘just in case’ and no one wants to have to charge for re-wrapping and going through the whole digital master process again. Hats off to Root6, and any other developers that have now made this a non-story in a month when lots of DPP news abounds. Asset management Transmedia Dynamics (TMD has developed an interface that links the Mediafl ex asset management system with Adobe’s Premiere Pro Creative Cloud (CC). The Mediafl ex Gateway, which includes an HTML-5 based panel, allows Premiere Pro to be integrated into broadcast workfl ows, with metadata passing in both directions. Working this way allows post- production tasks to be defi ned in Mediafl ex, with the gateway delivering the required material and the work order to Premiere Pro. www.tmd.tv See one of three videos from TMD at IBC here... 22 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 94 OCTOBER 2014 TV-BAY094OCT14 v118.indd 22 07/10/2014 15:38
