Vidispine, the Arvato Systems’ brand that provides scalable IT solutions for media and industry, has announced that its media asset management (MAM) portfolio is now integrated with project management solution ‘Helmut’ from Cologne-based video and IT specialists MoovIT Software Products. With this integration, customers can take advantage of efficient and straight forward project management of editing projects for Adobe Premiere as well as enhanced automation of routine processes to accelerate and simplify production.
‘Helmut’ organizes editing projects in professional video production environments that use Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects or Adobe Audition. The products in the ‘Helmut’ ecosystem can manage projects, templates, preferences and profiles, control project-related assets from ingest to export and organise storage systems. All of this is now seamlessly integrated into the Media Service Platform VidiNet.
The tight integration gives producers and editors direct access to the VidiCore repository from within Adobe Premiere. ‘Helmut’ creates and manages Premiere projects and makes them accessible in the Vidispine products like MediaPortal. Stream Engine, the integral element of ‘Helmut’ that connects and controls all of the underlying processes, automatically uploads rendered videos to VidiCore and triggers any desired workflows.
Arvato Systems will resell Helmut globally, offering the integrated solution from a single source. The integration is available immediately for new and existing customers.
Meanwhile, VidiNet now includes functionalities for facial recognition and automated quality control.
Vidispine has also announced MediaPortal SaaS for Metadata which provides journalists and content producers with rapid and fluent access to a vast repository, as well as the ability to collect, curate and share that content with search logic and intuitive design. The Software- as-a-Service (SaaS) solution is available on and through the VidiNet platform. Also new is a ‘SaaS for Metadata creation’, built in partnership with DeepVA.
