MEDIA MONITORING SHARED STORAGE Facilis has announced the immediate availability of FastTracker, an integrated application for cataloguing, searching and viewing any media within TerraBlock Shared Storage Systems. Ira Klusendorf, a video production manager at Steinhafels, one of the beta users of FastTracker, said: “This is just the right amount of media management for our workflow, because we didn’t want to take away time from creating content to manage all of our data. We needed fast, intuitive search with the ability to instantly view what we’ve found, and immediately access that on our editing systems.” Users can drag-and-drop media directly into the timeline or bin of Avid Media Composer, Apple FCPX and Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Clips can be indexed and catalogued from both Mac and PC workstations. Once clips are located, they can instantly be previewed by either a simple thumbnail scroll or played at full resolution in the integrated viewer. During Broadcast Asia Bridge Technologies displayed the VB288 Objective QoE Content Extractor, a new offering for viewing and monitoring OTT services and real-time streams together. The VB288 feeds visual content verification with Objective QoE, graphical status displays and alerts to a remote videowall display that can be viewed through any web browser. The latest version of the VB288 integrates OTT services alongside conventional linear streams. Running on a standard high-spec server, the VB288 can power displays of large numbers of MPEG-2, H.264/MPEG-4 and H.265/HEVC channels in multiple browser windows. Operators can mix and match between TS streams and OTT services. Also on show was the Gold TS Protection, which includes all the checks specified in the ETR290 standard, and also tests for critical conditions missed by ETR290. bridgetech.tv facilis.com KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 114 JUNE 2016 | 21
