Volicon new VoD/OTT content generation workflow

August 13, 2015

Volicon has introduced a new accelerated VoD/OTT content generation workflow based on the Capture and Share applications for the company’s Observer Media Intelligence Platform. Leveraging these applications along with the platform’s content-recording capabilities, intuitive user interface, and seamless integration with edit and media asset management (MAM) systems, broadcasters can establish efficient content repurposing workflows, with frame accurate closed captioning support that serve social and digital media platforms as well as content management systems and online video platforms (CMS/OVP) that support VoD/OTT services.

“The Observer Media Intelligence Platform continually captures high-quality broadcast content, aggregating valuable assets that broadcasters can repurpose and distribute for viewing on mobile devices and at the desktop,” said Gary Learner, CTO at Volicon. “Equipped with our Capture and Share applications, this platform enables fast generation of timely content such as news and sports — and more of it. In an increasingly crowded marketplace, this combination of speed and efficiency can be a key competitive differentiator.”

The Observer Media Intelligence Platform allows broadcasters to capture media in real time from any source, ingesting media 24×7 or according to a schedule, together with any metadata such as closed captioning. Because a low-resolution proxy is created along with the true HD (1080i 25/30, 720p 50/60) recording, a variety of local and remote Observer users can work collaboratively in accessing, reviewing, clipping, and generating content for further distribution.
