Tedial is a provider of media (MAM) and content management solutions. Its media IT platform, Tedial Evolution, provides global media companies and broadcasters next-generation MAM and business driven media workflow. Tedial supplies the world’s only fully end-to-end IMF compliant MAM solution, marrying media preparation and logistics into a complete supply chain, and a single workflow “Version Factory” that delivers thousands of media version from a single asset. For 2018 Tedial innovations includes a sports event tool that supports and extends production systems from industry leading vendors. Tedial Evolution is designed to reinforce a collaborative working environment and drive workflows for linear, VOD/OTT and live event services.
Tedial will introduce Smart LIVE, a comprehensive live event support tool and a major breakthrough in sports production. Smart LIVE, a totally unique development in the industry, leverages artificial intelligence (AI) tools to increase the number of highlights created automatically, thus reducing production costs and boosting revenues for production companies.
Before any action happens, Smart LIVE ingests a LIVE data feed and automatically creates an event inside its metadata engine. Simultaneously, Smart LIVE automatically creates the corresponding log sheets, the player grids and a schedule of the event. All these preparations are linked and organized by collections, so an entire season of sports events can be prepared automatically in advance.
During events, live data is ingested, and the system can be configured to automatically create clips based on actions, keywords or logged occurrences. Smart LIVE automatically pushes content to AI engines; video and audio recognition can be leveraged to generate additional locator data and annotate the media proxies. And the system can automatically publish clips or push content to social media platforms.
Smart LIVE is agnostic to any sports or data providers. Its powerful metadata engine can be easily configured to create an automatic metadata ingest process addressing the more demanding and the more complex sport workflows. Smart LIVE dramatically increases the utility of the MAM GUI interface, bringing the MAM much closer to LIVE production than ever before.
Smart LIVE is 100% compatible with PAM providers such as SAM or EVS, which makes it the perfect tool to orchestrate all business processes on top of an existing PAM. It can then manage the media life-cycle or media movements between different sites, thanks to Tedial’s award-winning AST storage management system, or simply manage historical sport archives.
Tedial will demonstrate Smart LIVE’s automatic highlight creation feature, its integration with AI engines, speech to text integration annotating incoming live media, and the automated publish feature with TELLYO, provider of a cloud-based video production, editing, streaming and distribution platform, and a Tedial technology partner.
Tedial Hyper IMF — Tedial will also be highlighting its HYPER IMF, the industry’s leading end-to-end IMF workflow leveraging IMF methodologies to save users in storage and versioning costs. HYPER IMF is a true IMF solution that supports IMP and supplemental file ingests and creation of unique CPLs for archive, versioning and delivery. This complete solution can leverage IMF markers for soft-parting and pre-mid-post roll insertions.
Tedial Augmented STorage (AST) — Tedial’s award-winning Augmented STorage (AST) system takes its place as the new paradigm in hierarchical storage management (HSM). AST expands traditional HSM into a multi-site, multi-tier heterogeneous storage enabling cloud deployments, multi-site operations or hybrid clouds with minimal impact on upper layers. Fully AXF Compliant!
Version Factory for distribution — Tedial’s highly scalable and flexible content publishing to linear and non-linear platforms are based on IMF CPL component definitions and OPL delivery profiles for automating the creation and distribution of thousands of versions.
