Media Distributors Launches New Media Asset System

Posted on by Larry

My friend, Nate Adams over at Media Distributors tipped to me a new asset management system being introduced by Media Distributors at NAB.

Now, I know that the concept of a database for tracking assets can cause many people’s eyes to defocus — but let me tell you, not finding the clip you need when you need it is a HUGE deal.

Here’s a description of the system that Media Distributors sent me:

Combining the strength of enterprise-level storage and high-end image analysis, Media Distributors introduces a truly next-generation asset management system – Constellation VCM™ – for NAB 2009. You can see demos of the system at the Band Pro booth (#C-10408) during the show.

The Constellation VCM system is the first to leverage tiered storage and digital fingerprinting. This is scalable for customers that range from high-volume to small production companies. It offers full search, retrieve, and manipulation of video and project files, without touching the original video source content. It supports ingest (using Sony F23/F35, EX3, and Panasonic Varicam, DVCPRO and P2 cameras), archive, and editing – including color correction – and can automatically distribute to CD, DVD, or to digital delivery systems. The system also allows you to manage media files and metadata.

Constellation VCM recognizes a variety of video formats, software including to Apple Final Cut Pro Studio, Avid, and PilotWare. It supports XSAN, Unity, Blu-ray Disc, tape drives, and library systems and runs on the Mac OS X, Linux, and a variety of Windows systems.
