Storage Architecture for MAM and Archive
The growth of more sophisticated, lower cost and less complex asset managers especially platforms dealing with remote users, has driven confusion as to where and how proxy and raw content should be stored and maintained. We will offer good suggestions for dealing with these concerns.
MAM, Edit, Transcode, Color, Audio, Archive, Ingest and Delivery.
It may seem like an easy task, but understanding how data loads are balanced can greatly improve performance and reliability. We will discuss real world example of these.
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.

Meta enables customers to store identification, editorial, technical, rights, discovery and AI-generated content metadata for media and entertainment catalogues. It also stores additional metadata assets like images and videos that are required to complete a dynamic and compelling user experience. The VOD explosion highlights the fact that historically distinct metadata types have been managed in fragmentary ways. The volume of AI generated metadata simply compounds the problem. Meta takes the logical & elegant step of storing all types of content metadata side-by-side, in a platform optimised for performance.
Many parts of the broadcast workflow, e.g. playout and transcoding, have successfully migrated into the cloud, but migration of live production into the cloud is happening more slowly. Broadcasters seeking revenue from international distribution of live events need live standards conversion in a fully cloud-based workflow. This presentation outlines the practical and technical challenges of reinventing standards conversion as a live cloud-based service, and discusses the readiness of various technologies as appropriate to the required solution.
