Sienna Adds Automated Support for Vizrt, MassTech and Front Porch
Interaction with graphic engine incorporated
December 17, 2012
LONDON — Sienna says its
AutomationX can now talk directly to a Vizrt media sequencing engine to trigger
graphics directly from the AutomationX playlist. In addition to this, Sienna
allows playlist events to be intelligently linked from inside NCS systems such
as ENPS, enabling producers to preset the timing relationships between a master
video package and the series of lower thirds, to be performed by Vizrt.
Sienna also has
added support for two more well known archive systems, MassTech’s MassStore and
Front Porch’s Diva Archive. In both cases, Sienna provides native control
of the third-party archive system using socket or web services control.
All the normal
Sienna archiving facilities work, including automated archiving of delivered
packages, or complete MOS bulletins, automatic restore-on-demand, and finally,
partial restore using the Sienna Web MAM to select the chosen segments from
archived content. Users need only interact with the Sienna Media Asset Manager
for archive, restore and partial restore. Working
closely with MassTech and FrontPorch, Sienna said it has delivered an
integration which provides a seamless user experience and expands the options
for integrating a large LTO tape archive with Sienna.
