Momentum Workflow/Asset Management Systems

Momentum Workflow/Asset Management Systems

From ingest through to production delivery

MAM, workflow automation and resource planning

MomentumTM delivers the flexible workflow optimization, manipulation and media asset management media enterprises need to survive and thrive in this challenging, ever-changing environment.

Workflow

Momentum offers intelligent, flexible automation and control of every stage of the media chain, from ingest, cataloging, QC and editing to transcoding and multi-platform delivery. Any content, any time, any device, everywhere: Momentum is the complete media resource management solution.

Storage management

Momentum employs content management protocols that intelligently supervise file storage operations across diverse server architectures. The system’s inherent intelligence can support multiple types of storage system and even multi-site infrastructures – optimizing LAN and WAN network transfers.

Traceable assets

Creation of additional revenue generating assets from existing material is achieved using Momentum’s Timeline Editing facility. Material can be viewed on a web browser, edited and an EDL sent for final craft editing. On completion of the edit assets are automatically updated and linked to the parent asset for full traceability.

Human and technical resource management

Momentum includes project and resource management tools providing a single platform through which all elements that contribute to the delivery workflow are managed. Momentum Planner is a direct response to market demands for more flexible, user-friendly and inclusive operation management systems.
