FOR-A forays into file asset management

FOR-A will introduce MediaConcierge, a comprehensive content management system for use by broadcast TV stations and video production houses, at NAB2008. MediaConcierge acts as a virtual concierge by managing content; converting between common file and digital video formats; facilitating search, browse and file delivery; and interfacing to third-party media content databases and archives.

At the show, FOR-A will unveil the first two MediaConcierge products being marketed in North America — the MBP-100SX baseband converter and MXF file conversion software.

The MBP-100SX converter converts XDCAM HD MXF files to baseband video and HD-SDI signals, and vice versa, in real time for applications requiring baseband video. The MXF conversion software — which consists of three software plug-ins: the MCS-10PD (DVCPRO), MCS-10PA (AVC-Intra) and MCS-10SX (XDCAM) — enables the direct conversion of MXF data files between the P2 HD and XDCAM HD formats without converting them to baseband.
