Multiple Ingest Workflows with direct deliver to AVID editors
Network 18 was searching for an efficient and cost-effective ingest and outgest solution to deploy to their TV18’s regional channels. In order to unify its production workflow, ETV, Panorama installed a total of 20 x mxfSPEEDRAIL solutions including 11 x mxfSPEEDRAIL S500 (SDI recorder), 5 x mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000 (file-based Ingest) and 4 x mxfSPEEDRAIL O1000 (digital delivery).
By using mxfSPEEDRAIL’s innovative features, ETV, Panorama was able to configure multiple ingest workflow profiles (up to 10) that deliver directly to the Avid Editors uninterrupted. Providing ingest / outgest automation allows to save time and resources on manual tasks, automating the whole workflow and getting full control of the complete solution.
Since MOG’s systems are completely modular, ETV, Panorama
was able to start the installation on 3 sites, expanding and adapting the tapeless workflow through the year according to their requirements.
The mxfSPEEDRAIL is fully compatible with the AVID solutions, which ETV, Panorama
is using for editing, MAM, and storage. The mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000
system is performing the automatic ingest of MXF OP1a and Panasonic P2 format, wrapping them into Avid Clips (MXF OPAtom). The automated jobs profile included in mxfSPEEDRAIL
system enables ETV, Panorama
to perform the ingest tasks without the need of manual supervision. After ingesting, mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000
performs the “check-in” into Avid Interplay and sends the contents directly to their ISIS 5500, with support for “editing-while-ingesting” into the Avid Media Composer.
When the editing is finished, the Librarian is able to export Avid Sequences which are converted by mxfSPEEDRAIL O1000
into MXF OP1a. This is done by dropping the sequence into a pre-configured folder within Interplay that initiates the rewrap in the MOGO1000.
For live-feeds, ETV, Panorama
uses the mxfSPEEDRAIL S500
model, capturing the base-band signals and wrapping the content into Avid Clips (MXF OPAtom) and performing a “check-in” on the Interplay (via Web Services). Capture tasks, Crash Record or Batch Capture can also be automated taking full advantage of the S500 features including the scheduler, video monitor, LTC, and the embedded VTR controller.
