For the first time in Europe, Primestream® will demonstrate the next generation of its Dynamic Media Management platform at IBC 2018. The platform features new solutions for IP video capture and delivery covering professional and consumer formats, a cloud-based review and approval system, robust 4K workflow, public APIs to integrate third-parties into the Xchange™ platform, and a new configuration framework for quick and easy installations. The next generation of Primestream’s Dynamic Media Management platform is built for ease-of-use with powerful features needed to manage even the most complex sports, enterprise and broadcast workflows from capture through delivery.

Primestream will also highlight enterprise-grade Media Asset Management in the Cloud through a cloud-based version of its Xchange™ MAM solution in conjunction with Tata Communications’ cloud storage platform and high-performance Video Connect network. The service also features advanced file acceleration and an expandable object storage solution – ideal for disaster recovery or content archiving.

IP Ingest App and Media Framework

Today, IP streams come from a variety of sources: the web, cameras and traditional broadcast. To accommodate the need to capture, edit and transcode any IP source in SD, HD, 4K/UHD and VR/360, Primestream has significantly updated its core technologies to ingest IP sources into single or multiple self-contained file formats and transcode into ProRes®, XDCAM®, DNxHD®, AVC-Intra®, and H.264 while quickly moving that content through to production, management and delivery. Users can preview proxies and live recording within a web browser, manage signal-paths and sources using pre-configured presets, create on-the-fly proxies and begin editing with growing streams in Adobe Premiere Pro. The update enables customers to capture HLS, MPEG DASH, RTP/RTSP and RTMP streams, while also allowing the capture of SMPTE 2022 and Newtek® NDI IP streams such as HD-SDI and 3G-SDI using compatible hardware.

Review Hub

This new internet SaaS-based (software as a service) review and approval system can be integrated with existing Xchange systems, or can include a small on-site version of Xchange. The solution provides for on-site control and management with integrated communication to the cloud. The review and approval process is browser based with annotations delivered seamlessly to the Xchange platform. Multiple workflows are supported, with comprehensive user-defined security modes to protect sensitive content such as watermarking and expiration dates.

4K/UHD End-To-End Workflow

Primestream’s 4K/UHD end-to-end workflow covers all operations from ingest to playout. As adoption of this format increases, users can easily build on their specific 4K/UHD workflow needs. The update also includes support for HDR pass-through, live preview, and proxy generation.

Configuration Framework

A new centralized configuration module is now available across the Primestream product line with a common UI experience. This includes on-boarding, provisioning and wizard assisted installation of major parts of workflow for FORK and Xchange platforms. A built-in ‘help’ system is available that explains each available option. The guided system provides more consistently optimized solutions for customer problems.

Xchange Public API

Primestream will release comprehensive Xchange Public APIs with signatures and client access keys allowing customers to extend our solutions with third party integration. For example, customers can now extend Interoperable Master Format (IMF) workflow in conjunction with third-party applications. A number of API methods will be available to deliver the feature-set needed by Primestream Xchange users including media registration, metadata searches, project creation, annotations and more.

Primestream will also demonstrate the latest in VR/360 asset management, an updated Adobe® Premiere® Pro extension panel that features a new project versioning system, improvements to archival workflow and lifecycle management with leading cloud and tape storage providers in addition to significant “under the hood” improvements for better performance and reliability.
