SAM announced a major new facility for its Momentum MAM solution at IBC that extends Momentum’s capability across the media production chain – Live Ingest.
Live Ingest on Momentum addresses the need for the efficient handling of multiple live feeds – a key requirement in news and sports production in particular, but also in playout service centers and similar operations.
Live Ingest integrates fully with Momentum’s intelligent workflow automation and resource planning, so every feed can be set up with a different workflow; it is a complete, automated ingest management solution. Live Ingest is also fast enough to enable instant recordings to be started, and metadata can be edited as recordings are happening, further streamlining workflows.“Live Ingest takes the pain and problems out of facility resource planning, automatically resolving management issues,” said Karl Mehring, SAM Director of Playout and Delivery. “It’s a powerful addition to Momentum’s intelligent, flexible MAM and workflow/resource planning capabilities, which now covers the media production chain from ingest, cataloging, QC and editing to transcoding and multi-platform delivery.”
