Masstech prepares new version of Emerald20 July 2011
Masstech is to launch the new Emerald version 7.5 Lite Edition for advanced digital archiving, HQS (High Quality Speed) transcoding and content management, writes Paul Watson.
Doubling as a mini-MAM, Emerald digitally preserves footage using file-based archiving where scaling is not required. It comes with active integration to various end-points including video servers and NLEs with automated workflows in production, newsrooms and mini-MAM broadcast applications.
Emerald integrates into popular Newsroom Computer Systems (NRCS) such as AP-ENPS and Avid’s iNEWS via Media Object Server (MOS) protocol, which means staff can research archived content, search slugs linked to video archives, browse archived content, and quickly make shot selections without moving from their desk.
Packaged for out-of-the-box operation, Emerald’s turnkey package includes server hardware, LTO library, software and first year’s support. Alternatively, Emerald can be accessorised and built to order.
