Kuwait TV has selected a joint EVS / Tedial solution to integrate into its long-term archive management system and its EVS IPDirector suite. The two companies technology comes together to enable live content created in the EVS environment to be automatically added to archive workflows managed by Tedial systems. The joint solution creates a bi-directional link between EVS live production asset management suite, IPDirector, and Tedials enterprise MAM system, Evolution.
Kuwait TV produces and broadcasts content across eight TV channels. During production the broadcaster can use the joint solution to quickly and efficiently pass live assets like replays, highlights and clips from IPDirector, a production asset management system thats built specifically for live media, directly into the Tedial Evolution MAM system. This then securely archives the assets on spinning and LT0 disks, immediately freeing up storage on the EVS servers.
Then after production, users can easily search the Tedial archive for assets and metadata including the EVS logs and easily fully restore media back into the EVS system so it can be easily played out in any other programming.
Our goal when designing solutions is to give our customers with the best way to maximise the value of their content, said Nicolas Bourdon, SVP Marketing at EVS.
Partnerships like this one with Tedial are key to making this happen. By closing the gap between live production and deep archive, were creating a two-way exchange of content, giving users the ability to better utilise their assets and ultimately create better stories.
Making sure they have an easily-managed archive of content is hugely important for them to future-proof their live programming, said Esther Mesas, Tedial CMO/CSO.
Having this tight integration between the EVS live production workflow and Tedial MAM system is a tremendous benefit that will help them to save expensive resources throughout the production process.
Careful attention has been paid to creating a thorough integration between our two companies technology, enabling us to offer a back-office solution that enhances and supports EVS industry-leading live tools, added Mesas.
This is something that a number of customers have quickly recognised the value in. So much so in fact that we already have two deployments currently being prepared for Kuwait TV and ITV Sport.
