Video Tape Digitizing Solution, custom designed, integrated and imbedded at a client’s location.
CUSTOMIZED VTM Solution WORKFLOW FEATURES:
Our features are designed to streamline your workflow process and increase your efficiency. It allows for a simple interface to your existing workflow, which enables users, little difficulty in operating the system seamlessly. Our workflow solutions include a fully automated robotic or a semi-automatic capturing system, which can ingest a multitude of video formats.
Automatic robotic capture system
The VTM Solution robot is designed to facilitate the maximum production with the least amount of downtime. The VTM Solution robot is capable of holding up to 80 small or 40 large Betacam style cassettes of varying formats; Betacam, Betacam SP, Digibeta, IMX, SX and HDCAM.
Semi-Automatic capture system
VTM Solution is a fully automated capturing solution, which allows for any serial RS-422 VTR to be connected as a source for ingestion. It also uses an intelligent tape-handling tool which can be used by anyone. Formats include; 1 inch, ¾” U-Matic, D1, D2, D3, D5, D9, DTC, DVCPRO, DVCAM and many more.
Proprietary control software
VTM Solution’s control software (VCS) not only controls the hardware but also organizes the capture data allowing one touch ingests and metadata embedding without any operator interference. Using our “smart capture” system, we’re able to ingest with our without client provided data or timecode, thus allowing smooth captures from any original tape, every time.
Client database interface and file metatagging
VTM Solution’s database (VDS) works directly with pre-existing database infrastructures, allows seamless migration of all data pertaining to the capture process. The system accepts .csv and .xml files for maximum compatibility. Data is then put directly into the file as its ingesting to further streamline the process.
The VTM Solution video streaming monitoring system continuously streams the final output file at near real-time to insure the file is being recorded and quality is being met.
Automatic real-time multi-channel transcoding
VTM Solution’s powerful transcoding option, allows for simultaneous capture and transcoding without user interference. Transcoded files can be immediately used for asset management solutions or put directly on the web. Transcoded file types include; Flash, Windows Media, .H264 and many more.
Advanced real-time quality control
The VTM Solution quality control solution (AQC) is a tool that allows for the automatic checking of each file and original video content against a set of user adjustable parameters that once configured, allow for extremely accurate reporting on each file.
Live Digital Archiving and Asset Management
The VTM Solution archiving solution allows for automatic storing & searching and reviewing of captured material, including metadata, logging info and any other data or file.
Advanced digital noise reduction
With advanced hardware technology, we’re able to reduce noise in the audio and video signals. Available for all formats.
