IBC 2007 (Stand 7.411)
Telestream will be showing how it flips through the videos and images uploaded to sites such as Youtube or that of its client Getty Images, to scan, filter and validate incoming video, audio and metadata. FlipScan accepts or rejects the content based on rules set on format type or contents and sends notifications, eliminating manual intervention.
Flipscan is an addition to the company’s FlipFactory transcoding and workflow automation product. Which supports over 120 formats and system wrappers and automatically transforms media and delivers metadata with video and audio to multiple destination systems for submission to content distribution providers such as iTunes, Google, or cable VOD providers.
Developed by systems integrator, Nativ, to address the problem of managing increasing volumes of unstructured business and user generated rich-media content, Flipscan is exclusively licensed by Telestream.
“Telestream’s FlipScan technology allows us to quickly and efficiently identify and validate well-known video formats and codecs. We can now extract useful file information very rapidly from the source video that clients upload, and transfer it directly into Media Manager or Image.net.” said Tim Claxton, Senior Product Manager at Getty Images. The Getty implementation will be showcased at the Telestream booth.
