Boston, Massachusetts, April 9, 2009 – MediaSilo, the professional video online tool suite announces the release of it’s new logging and transcription service. The plugin based feature will debut at NAB Show 2009 (booth SL9512).
â€œOur shift to a modular platform architecture enables MediaSilo to provide online tools that directly address key components of the production workflow.â€? said Kai Pradel, MediaSilo CEO. â€œWe think with MediaSiloâ€™s core platform of content management, collaboration and broadcast tools are universal. The new plugins build on that platform for a truly customizable production toolset.â€?
Designed for maximum flexibility, the logging/transcription module allow for user-generated lognotes or outsourcing from within the platform for as little as $1 per minute. Lognotes are generated within a customized user interface within MediaSiloâ€™s feature-rich application and can include verbatim transcription, scene descriptions and reel and take information. The metadata generated from lognotes within MediaSilo remains attached to the video clip within the platform or overwritten on the client server for search and archive.
â€œWeâ€™ve negotiated preferred rates with a group of select, established transcription companies who understand the needs of video pros,â€? Pradel said. â€œWeâ€™re simply integrating their service into our user-friendly logging module and offering the service within MediaSilo at preferred rates, saving our users time and money.â€?
MediaSiloâ€™s new logging/transcription tools can also be used as a stand-alone plugin for user-generated lognotes.
â€œWe give you two options for transcription,â€? said Dan Green, MediaSiloâ€™s workflow specialist. â€œDo it yourself, or outsource. The important thing is streamlining workflow and maximizing metadata, and thatâ€™s what MediaSilo does best.â€?
