Aframe unveils next generation cloud platform1 April 2014
At NAB 2014 Aframe will launch the next generation of its cloud video platform, Aframe 3.0, including a new desktop app offering automated media movement workflows, custom transcoding technology, an HTML5 player for precision control ahead of the edit and asset management features that save immense time and hassle in broadcast video production.
Aframe 3.0 helps to make news and sports as well as media and entertainment professionals more productive and allows them to use existing on-premise assets more efficiently.
New features include:
- A desktop app with smart upload technology that enables Aframe users to save time and hassle in uploading and distributing files out. The app automatically detects the best connectivity settings before sending the clips to Aframe where it automatically transcodes them to a viewing copy. Users can then configure the app to automatically push the clips to other users’ desktops, for maximum convenience.
- Automatic transcoding features including automatic transcoding to a house format or custom transcoding per clip that mean less effort spent transcoding everything to be used, and less expense on transcoding tools.
- Expanded access controls and refined permission features that provide a ‘mission control’ administrator view, enabling easier management across cost centers and more fluid asset management.
- New HTML5 Player – faster, frame accurate and universally compatible for faster footage review even on smartphones and tablets that expedites the organisation of vast amounts of video.
