ROOT6 shows major update to ContentAgent
ContentAgent, the universal content repurposing platform from ROOT6 Technology, was shown at NAB2008 with new v2.4 software. As well as adding some important features, the new software enables the original bespoke hardware to be replaced by an HP XW 4800 workstation.
Consolidating its position as the natural heart of file-based production, ContentAgent now provides support for the MFX wrapper format through a collaboration with OpenCube Technologies. Sony XDCAM and Panasonic P2 formats may now be imported for transcoding along with associated metadata. ContentAgent can also output Avid-compatible MXF and DNxHD files.
Output options are further extended with v2.4 to include HD-SDI with multichannel AES or analog audio supported, and automated output to FTP, Web, e-mail, RSS and interactive DVD make ContentAgent extremely versatile.
