Media production and distribution have become more complex business processes with the proliferation of sources and distribution channels. Best-of-breed media processes demand support from ever more intelligent infrastructure that can carry policy-prescribed operations based not only on the asset’s metadata but on the intrinsic characteristics of the asset itself. A media-aware infrastructure can simplify workflows and complement the human team, reducing costs and minimizing the possibility of errors. This session will cover best practices to turn your infrastructure into an invaluable “member” of your production team.
In this webcast, experts will explore:
- The nature of media-aware infrastructure
- Why metadata is limited for policy automation
- “Programming” treatments based on events in the workflow
- Should the Cloud be part of the media business process?
