Digital Asset Management, DAM is a complex challenge. The goal is to provide you and your staff with a clean workflow. The technology should remain backstage while you get on with your work.
The challenges of Asset Management rear their ugly head in common everyday scenarios where you deal with multiple clips from many takes and similar scenarios. But the problems become even more acute when dealing with complex configurations involving multilingual versions, high resolution and low resolution versions, different frame rates or compression standards and the like.
Before the Vidyatel solution came onto the scene, the only method available for comparing your video content was with metadata and timecodes. Metadata is only as accurate as the humans who entered it and often missing altogether. Errors enter your timecodes as your content migrates from platform to platform and editor to editor.
Vidyatel technology adds intelligence to your DAM…and then takes it to whole new level.
By indexing your video assets Vidyatel’s technology allows you to link video files to each other based on the physical elements in the video itself. These links are technology-driven and not based on metadata or timecodes which are entered by human editors and tend to be error-prone. When Vidyatel says segments in two video files are identical, you can believe it.
Taking it to the next level!
But there’s more. With Vidyatel’s search technology you can add much more value and power to your existing search capabilities.
Even if your editors have accurately tagged most of the content in your archive, there is always more content that is untagged. Perhaps fifty percent of your content is untagged or only partially tagged.
When Vidyatel indexes your content you can create links between identical segments by allowing the accurate metadata to be inherited from edited versions to derivative versions.
By increasing the percent of your content that is accurately tagged you, in effect, grow your library and enhance your team’s productivity.
To experience Vidyatel technology first-hand you candownload the EditBoost application, which is driven by Vidyatel.
