Across the industry, most implementation and transformation projects have traditionally been collaborative because individual groups of people from different companies and multiple disciplines work together to achieve a common aim. But it is often the case that they are working alongside each other rather than combining their intellect and jointly determining the best solution for a client, even if that means their system or technology is not core or managing some of the key functions as part of the overall solution. As systems have become diverse there is a real Venn-like overlap of functionality and it is essential that vendors now work side by side, within these common areas, to determine the most optimal solution for that workflow, operation, site or organisation.
Learn how to increase the efficiency and consistency of your broadcasts through event-based control of newsroom devices. During this in-depth webinar, you will learn:
- The NRCS centric operational philosophy for creating, scheduling, and editing live events.
- The benefits of drag-and-drop operations for event scheduling and cue editing.
- How resource management features warn operators of potential impending conflicts including; camera shot, play-out channel, or switcher resource management.
- How to secure on-air operations using a single on-air playlist interface for taking cues and monitoring the playlist events during the live production.
- How playlist viewers can confirm the playlist sequence in real-time.
Success with video doesn’t come from choosing a mystical single best-of-breed MAM, Edit Suite, Live Switcher, DAM – or any other system.
Instead, it comes with being able to easily orchestrate human, semi-automated and automated workflows among these systems, and others that will inevitably emerge.
Based in Los Angeles, Love Productions is an independent subsidiary of a leading UK production company with both entities specialising in unscripted content. Popular shows such as ‘The Great American Baking Show’’,’ ‘Singapore Social’, ‘Made in Mexico’ and many others air on major networks and streaming services including Netflix, Amazon and Facebook. Initially set up as a production office to develop U.S. shows back in 2013, as work expanded Love Productions decided to bring postproduction totally in-house.

In January, media management specialists Imagen hosted a webinar with IABM on ‘overcoming obstacles to cloud deployment’.
Imagen was one of the first companies to transition to a cloud-based SaaS model for media asset management and wanted to share the knowledge it has built up to support IABM members bringing cloud solutions to market. The webinar also highlighted cloud’s suitability for collaboration and partnerships, and how Imagen are embracing this.
Over time, the capability of many of the industry’s leading media and metadata management systems and tools has continued to advance, but can they change quickly enough to keep ahead of the new demands? The relentless, almost geometric growth, across the industry, in both the volume of files and complexity of data required for identification and global exploitation, poses a significant performance challenge to all vendors.
This, coupled with the necessity to increase automation and dramatically reduce human intervention at every point in the supply chain, has meant many vendors have had to step back and consider if their products remain “fit for purpose”.
Three Media was no different and performed an intensive ‘bottom up’ analysis of their XEN: product set.
Getting The Job Done: Production Teams During COVID-19 Global Pandemic
As scientists and doctors work around the clock to save lives while global measures to flatten the curve (398,900+ COVID-19 cases to date) continue, such as global lock-downs and travel bans, journalists and production teams are experiencing extremely difficult and unique circumstances surrounding news asset collection and publishing.
