VSNExplorer MAM incorporates the web-based editing tool Wedit with new functionalities such as voiceover capability.
VSN is showcasing VSNExplorer MAM, at NAB 2018 (booth SL 8006) in Las Vegas. VSNExplorer MAM incorporates the web-based editing tool Wedit with new functionalities such as voiceover capability. Wedits features are also available in the cloud to ensure flexibility for users.
Launched in its first version at NAB Show 2017, Wedit is a tool developed in HTML5 that allows journalists and editors to edit videos and prepare them for broadcast from a single interface, without having to switch to another non-linear editing system (NLE). Now, advanced editing and voiceover capabilities are included in the Wedit tool for the first time, the release states. Users are able to record voiceover tracks straight to the timeline, while previewing the sequence proxy video with frame accuracy, removing the need to switch to another NLE and enabling users to complete their videos solely from the Wedit interface, the company claims.
Commenting on the solution, Douglas Wynn, VSNs sales director covering North America, said: VSN Explorer MAM already offered all the tools necessary to manage the media of any company. It now comes turbo-charged with the Wedit tool including the new voiceover feature, with the added flexibility that is provided by cloud technology. For editors and journalists, this even more powerful solution enables them to create high-quality content and still meet even the tightest of deadlines, removing some of the stress in what is often a high-pressure environment.
As was also revealed at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam, VSNExplorer MAM offers its features under a pay-per-use model (SaaS model) in the cloud for additional speed, flexibility and costs reduction.
As well as the aforementioned Wedit tool and cloud capabilities, VSNExplorer platform for Media & Business Process management includes other functionalities such as a business intelligence layer (VSNExplorer BI) to transform data source information of existing broadcast systems (including the MAM software) into information for business analytics.
In addition to all these advances, VSN will be also showcasing its latest cloud-based Playout solution at NAB this year, following the implementation of four VSN systems in the cloud (VSNOneTV, VSNCreaTV, VSNExplorer and VSNWebTV).
