The New Remote Production Workflow Tool That Rapidly Ingests Video Footage to Save Time and Money
latakoo, a leading developer of software solutions for the broadcast production industry, has announced the release of its new latakoo DAILIES. Aimed at production companies, DAILIES is a time and cost savings workflow tool that enables video professionals to rapidly ingest video files from the shoot location to the latakoo cloud for post editing. latakoo DAILIES has been optimized for teams using Avid Media Composer, creating a more rapid transfer of video files into Avid edit bins and saving precious post-production time for deadline work.
latakoo DAILIES builds on the company’s cloud-based platform by now enabling video crews to send lightweight proxy files to editors within minutes of a shoot. Proxy files are created and rapidly uploaded to secure latakoo cloud accounts using the patented latakoo compression and upload process for storage and sharing. Associated metadata for files – including video card number, shoot date, camera ID, project number or a user customised field – can be collected for each group of transferred videos. Uploaded files are automatically downloaded by latakoo HUB (see below for information on HUB) and placed inside a shared drive. Editors can then simply drag the group of files into the appropriate bin in Avid Media Composer. The files, along with associated metadata, automatically populate the Avid bin with accurate information.
DAILIES has been created to support video ingest with or without the use of an asset manager. Employing latakoo’s HUB product, DAILIES complies with customers’ corporate firewalls and security standards, and can seamlessly integrate with asset managers, including those offered by Avid, Dalet, Grass Valley and Bitcentral systems.
“Production companies can save several days’ time by using latakoo DAILIES’ automated video workflow because it removes many onerous tasks, like driving or shipping a hard drive filled with the day’s video back to the post house for manual ingest,” said Paul Adrian, CEO of latakoo.
“We shortcut a long process by creating a proxy file on location and delivering it that same day through the internet to the post house where latakoo atomizes the video for use in Avid Media Composer. latakoo also creates Avid’s AAF files to deliver the accompanying metadata within minutes or seconds of the original transfer to our cloud.”
About latakoo HUB
The latakoo HUB server sits inside the user’s firewall and automates the download and transcode of video from the cloud. Files are checked into the user’s asset manager or playout system with accompanying metadata. HUB also uploads files from the asset manager to the cloud, where files can be made available to remote team members or transcribed. HUB supports 608/708 closed captioning.
Founded in 2010 by two award winning journalists for journalists, latakoo is the fastest, easiest way to transfer video files from anywhere to anywhere. The company enables professional broadcasters and production companies to automate delivery of video content to different asset managers, digital platforms, and ingest or playout servers seamlessly. The latakoo solution is used by some of the world’s leading broadcasters, including Nexstar. The company is based in Austin, Texas.
The latakoo platform is Avid Platform Certified, and an Avid Alliance Partner. The system is additionally integrated into asset managers made by Dalet, Grass Valley and Bitcentral.
