SAMMA Systems and IBM demonstrate automated content conversion
SAMMA Systems has teamed up with IBM to create a cost-effective, streamlined solution for content owners for the automated ingest and encoding of volumes of videotape content.
The process combines SAMMA Systems’ Robot, a multichannel, fully automated videotape-to-digital file migration system, with IBM’s multiplatform system capable of ingesting large quantities of content and rapidly encoding the material for instant availability. The system provides streamlined monitoring of content quality with easy-to-read graphical analytics.
The Robot detects and automatically corrects many common tape and video problems. The system produces SQL integration for library and asset management systems. For batch management, it produces XML reports on key metrics for every video frame. One operator can produce up to 28 simultaneous digital file recordings from seven videotape recorders.
