Telestream intros GraphicsFactory for automated workflows
Prominently featured in its “media everywhere” demonstration at NAB, Telestream announced its new workflow automation solution, GraphicsFactory, which allows content owners, aggregators and distributors to cost-effectively brand and repurpose media for the growing number of new distribution channels.
With GraphicsFactory, an editor builds a graphics template once and then hands it off to an assistant who applies simple metadata to tailor the template for each video asset. Graphics and source video files are then submitted to GraphicsFactory for automatic processing, transcoding to required formats and delivery to distribution servers.
GraphicsFactory also offers an XML interface that enables fully automated integration of metadata into the graphics assembly workflow. In these instances, an editor creates a graphics template and then drives the graphics production process using metadata supplied from external systems.
GraphicsFactory is offered as a stand-alone product providing automated graphics assembly, transcoding and delivery or as an upgrade to existing FlipFactory systems.
