By PAUL QUIGLEY
ECM Plus +++ /LAS VEGAS/ – Booth SL6010 – Digital Rapids is showing new extension to the MediaMesh B2B content delivery system at NAB.
According to the company, MediaMesh TX content contribution appliance now offers content packaging and sending capabilities mirroring features of MediaMesh RX’s receiving appliance.
DR said the new content delivery offering scales from point-to-point delivery to global distribution networks, with the MediaMesh content delivery system combining scalable transfer technology with sending and receiving, providing transfer of digital media files between content providers, contributors, aggregators and distribution partners.
MediaMesh also optimizes transfer of HD, SD and Digital Cinema media over terrestrial IP networks and satellite, and also offers content ranging from ad spots to syndicated series and long-form features.
DR said that the MediaMesh TX contribution appliances can blend centralised inventory management with media transformation and packaging, enabling submission, repurposing and delivery of file-based media.
New features also include content and metadata management, with file conforming and transcoding; resource creation such as proxies and thumbnails, QC verification; playout; print-to-tape; and delivery to individual recipients or groups at the network ‘edge’.
DR confirmed that with the new system, published content can be sent in the recipient’s final destination format or in a ‘mezzanine’ package to be converted to local format requirements upon receipt
“With the continually expanding diversity and opportunity of the content distribution landscape, media organizations are replacing complex and fragmented processes with streamlined workflows that increase their efficiency and effectiveness” commented Brian Stevenson, director of product management IPTV and delivery for Digital Rapids. “MediaMesh TX contribution solutions round out the MediaMesh system, enabling a complete, intuitive, end-to-end content delivery workflow with considerable savings over physical distribution or expensive services.”
The company said MediaMesh TX contribution appliances are slated for release in the second half of 2011.
