NAB 2017: Arvato Systems presents innovative, award-winning solutions for the Media Industry
With the slogan ‘Connecting Content & People’ Arvato Systems will demonstrate their products for Media Asset Management, Workgroup Editing, Cross Platform Rights & Scheduling, and Cross Media Monetization at NAB booth SU5515. This year, Arvato Systems highlights three important solutions – MediaPortal, Avatega, and EditMate – at the world’s largest industry gathering for broadcast and new media.
MediaPortal: The journalistic cross-media search tool of tomorrow
Operating in the newsroom environment, MediaPortal acts as a platform for finding and gathering content from multiple sources including newsfeeds, social media channels, internal and external databases and Media Asset Management systems. Thanks to the intuitive search engine, results can be brought together and shared with colleagues, enabling everyone to benefit from improved levels of collaborative working. Preview, video, audio and text editing features as well as the ability to share large video files across multiple locations make MediaPortal a ground-breaking search and collaboration system. The web-based application is browser and platform agnostic and will soon also be available for mobile devices. Open interfaces simplify integration and customization. The tool was developed by Arvato Systems in conjunction with infoNetwork and CBC – both part of the RTL Germany Media Group. The system will be showcased at NAB 2017.
Avatega IP Rights Management and Cross-Platform Scheduling
Avatega is an efficient, and highly-integrated system for managing contracts and intellectual property (IP) rights, and linear and non-linear content schedules. Based on the robust and scalable Microsoft Dynamics AX enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, Avatega enables users to schedule content across all their distribution platforms while maximizing the value of IP assets. NAB 2017 sees the introduction of a number of exciting new features that automate the process and optimize the usage of rights and licenses.
Adobe Primetime® Integration
The combined power of Arvato Systems and Adobe enables the creation of engaging, personalized viewing experiences with a strong monetization layer. Bringing the Avatega program schedule and Adobe® Primetime video platform together, you can create a unique user experience and use the power of the Adobe Marketing Cloud® for personalised scheduling. The recommendation engine of the Adobe Marketing Cloud® scans descriptive metadata of the program (e.g. cast, crew, genre) to improve recommendation quality and click-through rates. The integration of the Avatega and Adobe Primetime also enables recommendations based on the scheduled programming (e.g. “next week there is a movie with your favorite actor”), in turn generating higher audience numbers and increasing viewer retention.
EditMate is the market leading solution for managing Adobe Premiere® Pro CC projects and the related media files for seamless collaborative editing workflows. New for NAB, EditMate now gives editors the option to “check out” projects and associated media for offline work on their local devices. Users can check back in and submit edited projects, or entirely new projects and files, back into the workgroup. This adds significant flexibility for mobile users.
