Broadcast Asia 2015: Tedial to Show Tedial Evolution
Tedial, an independent MAM technology solutions specialist, is revealing Tedial Evolution, an enhanced version of its Media IT platform, to the Asia market at Broadcast Asia 2015.
Tedial Evolution, which is being demonstrated on the Magna stand #5C2-01, significantly extends MAM functionality with advanced search/indexing tools, new services to surf/explore archives, and improved integration between archive and workflow engines to reinforce a collaborative environment.
The user experience of Tedial Evolution™ has been built on the existing tried and trusted Tedial platform including HTML5 and is designed to speed both manual and automated workflows. The design philosophy of the new user interface surface is to improve efficiency and performance through reducing key strokes and menu interactions, as well as keeping frequently used tools on the screen. True multi-screen (Smartphone, Tablet, etc.) and multi-platform (IOS, Android, Windows, etc.) operations allow users to manage tasks, validate media or monitor workflows status from mobile devices, a key element in an collaborative workflow environment where not everyone can be guaranteed to be at a fixed workstation.
The interface is fully customizable for individual preferences or work assignments, including different metadata views and screen configurations, with an integrated activity monitor and unified view of archives, workflows and business processes. And the new interface features a configurable ”logging” board with shortcuts for actions and actors, specially designed for sports and live events.
New Tarsys Search/Indexing Engine
The Tedial Evolution Search/Indexing engine has been extended to organize/search collections and other object related entities, to index very large databases via shared indexes, and to automatically tag descriptive metadata based on scoring of texts using stop words. The system now autocompletes user keyword inputs and generates suggestions for every entry as it is typed. It offers new methods to surf the MAM through “departments” using an “Amazon.com style” facets category and/or group entities. The system can also auto-tag, relating assets based on most relevant tags.
True Object Relational Database
Harnessing the power of the existing true Object Relational Database, a new set of tools provides a service to manage group entities, a multi-level classification schema (collections, albums, series, projects, rights, delivery packages, etc.) based on dynamic, changing relations.
Extended Business Process Management Services
Business Process Management services have been extended to reinforce collaboration, allowing several users to work with the same asset. New collaborative processes can be defined using an extended library of foundation workflows and activities.
Esther Mesas, Tedial’s Chief Sales & Marketing Officer said, “We are delighted to be exhibiting at Broadcast Asia alongside our partner Magna Systems & Engineering. This is the first time thatTedial Evolution has been shown in Asia and we look forward to demonstrating a completely new user experience designed to accelerate both manual and automated media workflow. Tedial Evolution enables broadcasters and content owners to take real advantage of file-based workflows, cloud computing and other emerging technologies with minimum risk and maximum benefits.”
