IPV will showcase the latest version of its Curator system at IBC2008 in Amsterdam. A proxy-based tapeless workflow environment running on both PC and Apple Mac platforms, the Curator system is designed to allow media professionals to add value to their content and efficiently fulfill tasks such as desktop editing media annotation, review and approve, and general media browsing. It is a complete solution that can efficiently ingest, encode or transcode, at low bit rates, proxy SDI or file-based media, which can then be used concurrently by multiple users.
Enhancements to the Curator system include the ability to: capture third-party externally generated event metadata for the live generation of subclips, complete with annotations, speeding up operations such as highlight package creation; ingest graphics and audio files, providing the browse viewer an enhanced rough-cut viewing of proxy material; and provide a complete file-based workflow solution for integration with craft editing systems. Curator ensures that both the rough cut EDL and the correct high-resolution file-based assets are transferred to the required craft editing system, while automating file rewrapping and EDL translation.
