At BroadcastAsia 2019, VSN will demonstrate its range of solutions - based on standard IT infrastructure – designed to support the needs of organisations creating, distributing, and managing content - which are looking to maximise the value of their content.“Our focus at VSN continues to be on the interoperability, seamless workflows, intuitive ease of use, flexibility and increased efficiency that broadcast and media organizations need,” said Nicholas Morgan, sales director - APAC region,VSN.
The VSN booth will feature a number of newly-announced products, including the Media Exchange Solution. Media Exchange acts like a content hub in the cloud (but can also be hosted on-premise), and addresses situations in which media content such as news, sports, advertising, programs, films, and TV series - needs to be exchanged, managed and available to more than one location.
Flexible and customisable, Media Exchange can easily adapt to almost any requirements. Content subscriptions for individual media entities that will automate file movement and optimise file transfers according to the entity’s subscription profile can, for example, be simply created. Reports and dashboards allow analysis of each entity’s activity, while organisations can plan in advance the production of concrete content pieces using content forecasts.
Also new is VSN NewsConnect, an HTML5 plugin for NRCS that enables users to create a news production environment specifically optimised for their requirements, complementing and improving the media production workflow at any facility. Users can also preview in real time how final stories - including graphics and video – will look. It allows broadcast and media companies, in essence, to interconnect via MOS any leading NRCS, CG, NLE, studio playout system and video servers, within a centralised workspace - to create a seamless workflow for news production.
The new integration of VSNExplorer with AI engines, VSNExplorer MAM allows automatic metadata detection and advanced cataloguing functionalities, such as facial recognition and the identification of objects, places, music, voice or audio effects. It can also detect action and correlate that action with verbs and relevant terms; identify entities, political parties, logos and brands; and even analyse sentiment and emotions, either positive or negative.
