Integration Improves Workflow Scheduling and Playout for the Government Agency
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS – Solid State Logic is pleased to announce the complete integration of the Snell Morpheus Automation and Media Management Systems with the Gravity Media Asset Management system at IBC 2009. This integration facilitates the automation of on-air playout of media assets for the Gravity system at the Danish Parliament.
“We are very excited by the integration with the Pro-Bel Snell Morpheus Automation and Media Management Systems,” says Shaun McTernan, Gravity product manager for SSL. “Morpheus receives metadata from the Gravity gateway and manages the broadcast schedule, controlling Gravity Play to air servers for on-air playout via the Morpheus PBAK LAN protocol. This integration will facilitate the public dissemination of video taken during the Danish Parliament sessions.”
Morpheus Automation features Snell’s Media Ball system that manages everything from simple server playout to complex channels where schedules are changing regularly and, therefore, unpredictable. Morpheus Media Management (M3) is a family of PC-based applications centered around a relational database. As part of the Morpheus Automation Solution, M3 ensures that material is identified, located and moved with precision for timely broadcast to air. The integration with Gravity improves the scheduling and playout capabilities for the Danish Parliament.
Gravity Media Asset Management systems pull together the essential elements of encoding, storage, transcoding and decoding digital media to provide an integrated system for the ingesting, editing and playout of content for the broadcast, education, government, corporate and military markets.
