In a world characterised by the proliferation of digital file types, formats and standards, ContentAgent provides a central hub from which to manage all aspects of file-based workflow. Resolution independent transcoding ensures that, from the files you have, you can easily generate the files you need to work on, or the files you need to deliver.
ContentAgent’s elegant and intuitive user interface echoes working practices and provides all the tools you need to create and automate workflows from acquisition to deliverables in a secure, reliable and repeatable manner. Integration with ‘best of breed’ third party technologies facilitates such powerful features as automated file-based QC, disc publishing and advanced frame rate conversion.
Used as a standalone system or integrated within a networked operation, ContentAgent is scalable with the addition of ‘off-the-shelf’ render nodes. In all cases, advanced CPU and GPU processing ensure outstanding performance.
Discover how ContentAgent can simplify and streamline your file-based operation and embrace the benefits already enjoyed by many of the world’s leading digital media organisations.
Automating File-Based Workflows Whitepaper
Are you being asked to encode programs for file based delivery for broadcast? Or part of a digital dailies workflow for editorial etc? This whitepaper discusses how automating the delivery of file based media using the MXF format dramatically improves efficiencies in the workflow between production, post production and broadcast environments.
ContentAgent can run as a software only application on a variety of PC hardware including blade servers and workstations. The system can run with standalone media storage or can be connected to a network topology (SAN, NAS etc). Additional Transcoding nodes (Job Agents) can also connect together with a main ContentAgent system (over an Ethernet network) to provide a render farm.
For systems which require SDI capture, a qualified workstation is required.
