As integrators dedicated to the power of open-source solutions, it makes perfect sense: a scalable and extensible foundation that leverages the power of open-source technologies, combined with customized development that sews it all together.
Its framework is based on MediaBox from Cantemo, an ingenious company whose engineers saw the light of providing a comprehensive web-based asset management system that expands by simply plugging in customized applications.
Underneath that, a sleek and powerful set of tools developed by Vidispine, which provides hooks to filesystem access, transcoding engines, database integration and broad support for a multitude of media wrappers and formats.
It is the perfect platform on which to develop our new Media Asset Management system.
But even more important to us was the ecosystem in which the product can flourish. We have formed an alliance of worldwide partners, invested in sharing the applications and best practices that they provide to their clients. This way, no one reinvents the wheel, and no one is alone when they get stuck.
We're calling it MetaMAM™.
MetaMAM is a complete hardware/software solution intended to provide a comprehensive set of Media Asset Management tools for any facility that acquires, creates and/or distributes content. It has limitless extensibility and scalability. It has granular access control so that content and metadata access as well as system functionality are given appropriately to each user. All that's needed to access your content is a simple web browser. This means that every computer and mobile device at your facility, right now, can use it.
Furthermore, we can customize not only the functionality and metadata structures of the system, but also the way it looks and feels, down to the pixel.
MetaMAM interfaces with any kind of storage entity, within your facility or halfway across the world. It has built in annotation and simple rough cut editing, one click import into all the popular editing packages. And, as we pledged, it will suck in every aspect of a former Final Cut Server catalog. Most importantly, it comes with our industry leading 24/7/365 support.
We're happy to announce that MetaMAM will be available in the second quarter of this year. We'd love to make an appointment with you to show you its power, flexibility and simplicity. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
We'll also be showing the solution at our suite at the Renaissance Hotel, a short walk from the South Hall, during the entirety of NAB.
