Avid has announced an update to its MediaCentrak workflow platform that includes the addition of the new MediaCentral | Acquire IP-based ingest scheduler.
The update also includes remote collaboration and improved hybrid working support.
Avid said the new capabilities will enable media companies to accelerate production on premises and in the cloud.
The MediaCentral | Acquire ingest scheduler app in MediaCentral | Cloud UX automates ingest scheduling for SDI and IP sources by controlling FastServe | Ingest, FastServe | I/O and MediaCentral | Stream, added the company.
MediaCentral | Acquire also supports Edit While Capture workflows for faster turnaround, while enabling ingest management from anywhere using only a web browser, said Avid.
“Media companies face increasing competition for viewers and continued pressure to quickly and efficiently deliver more compelling content,” said David Colantuoni, Avid’s vice president of product management for video and media solutions. “MediaCentral is the industry’s leading platform for enterprise content creation. With every software update, we unlock new levels of creativity and operational efficiency, empowering our media enterprise customers to deliver better content to their viewers in less time than ever before.”
