Beluga preps for playout16 September 2017
Developed in partnership with Blue Lucy, Beluga is a new workflow engine, content management and video processing product that integrates closely with Pebble’s Marina automation system. It offers targeted file delivery, content preparation and integrated
QC workflows without the need to deploy an enterprise MAM solution.
Beluga’s content management approach focuses on the tasks of preparing content for playout and distribution, said Pebble. Checking segmentation, programme content, allowing for conformance editing, performing comprehensive QC and generating reports are all essential steps along the playout pipeline.
Beluga also adds transcoding and proxy creation to Marina’s existing toolset. As the number of users grows, Beluga’s simple web-based interface enables teams to interact with the media dynamically without having to install dedicated client software.
