Ortana Media Group is introducing new features to its Cubix media asset management (MAM) and media orchestration platform. These features will be introduced at BVE 2017 in London.
Used by television channels, the Ortana Cubix platform can be configured to handle all media-related workflows from inception, ingest, archiving and manipulation right through to billing. Each element of the system can be operated via a highly intuitive unified graphical user interface.
Cubix Tracker & Reporting provides visual displays allowing non-technical staff to review any Cubix task flow and drill down into detailed file-related information as well as corporate information such as service-level agreements. Additions to the Tracker & Reporting feature set include the ability to track physical assets right through to digital delivery and archiving. This embraces film scanning, barcode generation and management, plus easy image capture of a workflow configuration. Also added are multi-language subtitle support, track-stacking/audio-shuffling, improved audio library and proxy waveform support.
Cubix Taskflow Designer enables system administrators to create their own workflows and design task-specific user interfaces exactly matching their operational requirements.
Cubix operates as a true hybrid cloud platform with native support for Microsoft Azure SQL and Amazon RDS as well as the ability to run ‘remote harness’ automation modules that allow control of remote devices. Cubix also supports various tiers of on-premise and cloud storage, allowing orchestrated rules to be applied on a per client basis within a single instance. Entirely cloud agnostic, Cubix systems can even run across multiple public clouds allowing for media, metadata and services to be backed up in real time, as well as providing numerous models for active-active clustering.
