FOR-A to show media management systems
FOR-A will demonstrate MediaConcierge, a content management system for use by broadcast television stations and video production houses worldwide, at IBC (Stand 2.A51/B59).
MediaConcierge handles tasks such as media ingest and format conversion, allowing each media asset to be repurposed for delivery via a variety of outlets, including broadcast, the Internet and packaged media. The system converts between common file and digital video formats; facilitates search, browse and file delivery; and interfaces to third-party media content databases and archives.
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. This converter uses a new MBP video card developed by FOR-A that supports XDCAM HD, DVCPRO HD and AVC-Intra tapeless media files.
The MCS-100M MXF conversion software — which consists of three software plug-ins: MCS-10PD (DVCPRO), MCS-10PA (AVC-Intra) and MCS-10SX (XDCAM) — enables the conversion of MXF data files between the P2 HD and XDCAM HD formats.
