Accordent Showcases AMMS Express - Turnkey Media Management System at NAB
All-in-One System Enables Media Professionals to Centrally Manage Media Libraries and Precisely Measure Audience and Content Performance
El Segundo, CA(12 Apr 2010)
Accordent Technologies will demonstrate for NAB attendees how its newest product offering - the Accordent Media Management System Express (AMMS Express) - uniquely enables organizations to unify their multi-source and multi-format video communications within a centralized environment. Available as a single-unit server, AMMS Express streamlines deployment, minimizes resource requirements, and provides enterprise-wide control for accessing, managing, delivering, storing and expiring content.
With leading research firms predicting 50% annual growth in enterprise video use, and that 25% of all content that workers view will be media within three years, organizations are already accumulating a wide range of incompatible video assets. The AMMS Express serves as a unified business process layer for organizing video conference, rich media, user-generated, and video content via automated processes and workflows.
At NAB, Accordent will showcase new workflows that further simplify the ability for organizations to integrate legacy, third-party media - such as archived Windows Media files - within the AMMS enterprise video content management layer. Leveraging the system's Dynamic Media Viewer, organizations can now use AMMS content source profiles to map to media file directories, enabling entire legacy media libraries to be viewed, tracked, measured and managed through the AMMS - without transcoding - in their native media format.
Key features of the AMMS Express include:
Portal Services: Custom portal branding, user authentication, content search, Dynamic Media Viewer, online testing and certification and viewership reporting;
Video Content Management: Time-stamped metadata management, video content editing, format transcoding, category/channel publishing and content retention management;
Rich Media Delivery: Live event webcasting/multicasting, video-on-demand pre-positioning, multi-CDN distribution, native Windows Media delivery, pre-configured distribution profiles, location-based routing and encoder/stream fail over.
At NAB, the AMMS Express will be shown as a central component of the Accordent end-to-end rich media creation and management workflow. Show demonstrations will also feature the latest versions of its automated rich media creation products, including the Accordent Capture StationTM, its automated, turkey rich media capture and publishing solution that's ideal for meeting and class-based capture, and the Accordent Capture Station - Mobile Edition for portable or event-based capture.
