Grass Valley/Volicon: New capture and edit workflow12 September 2014
Volicon and Grass Valley have announced a new partnership to enable broadcasters to set up a rapid repurposing workflow in which content is quickly and easily captured, clipped, and edited for delivery to any platform.
It links the Capture and Share applications from Volicon’s Observer Media Intelligence Platform with Grass Valley’s Edius video editing software to provide “an accelerated production pipeline to support the rapid creation and delivery of compelling content,” according to Russell Wise, Volicon’s VP of global sales.
The Capture application facilitates realtime capture of up to 720p content from any source and makes it immediately available to users across the enterprise. The Capture application pairs HD H.264 encodes with proxy versions so that both local and remote users can collaborate seamlessly to review content, clip high-value segments, and push them directly into Edius.
To accelerate content distribution, the Share application provides single-click publishing profiles that facilitate rapid processing of content to meet appropriate container and encoding requirements for an array of platforms.
