The suite is designed to let operators review, normalize and approve file-based content before it goes to air. It uses automated workflows for analysis, review and fixing of the most important file issues. The normalization offers support for AFD tagging, up/down video conversion, audio loudness correction, channel tagging and down-mixing, and support for Closed Captions/OP47 subtitles.
The solution has been designed from the outset to unify workflows for both linear playout and TV Everywhere style VOD. The same assets, tools and scheduling processes are shared across VOD and linear TV operations. The VOD versioning offers tools for on-demand across multiple platforms, including support for dynamic ad insertion signaling and Nielsen watermarking.
