Designed to work with content management, rights management, traffic or work order systems for automated operations, the Version Factory stacks transcoders, quality control, DRM, CDN and employs SMPTE standardised designs. It is designed to be used by OTT/VOD platforms, network operations and other media companies when managing content across different distribution formats.

Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service Corporation (SBS) is centralising its media operations on Dalet’s Galaxy Media Asset Management (MAM) platform, it has been revealed. The Galaxy will take over programme management and multi-platform publishing with ingest, QC and playout provided by Deluxe Australia as part of a managed service agreement. Dalet will work in tandem with IBMS sales and traffic software from SintecMedia, Adobe Premiere for editing and Front Porch Diva for archive. Noel Leslie, chief technology officer for SBS, said: “We made a strategic decision to bring our programming content under the management of a single MAM platform. The integrated solution consolidates a number of our existing systems, unifying assets. This will allow for greater collab- oration, and make it easier for us to store, access and share our content, enabling us to do what we do best telling important diverse stories.” Square Box Systems has launched CatDV Archive to S3 Cloud, a new tie-up that enables CatDV-managed media assets and associated metadata to be archived in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). Dave Clack, chief executive of Square Box Systems, said: “With CatDV Archive to S3 Cloud, we’ve given our customers even greater workflow flexibility and the added confidence that their valuable assets are protected with the increasing cost savings and efficiencies enabled by the cloud.” Users can copy content directly to Amazon S3 object storage or archive files to clear space on their local storage drives, while preserving the assets’ metadata and tagging. The status of the service and the job queue can be seen at any time during a CatDV Archive to S3 Cloud operation. 26 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 113 MAY 2016 hand.
