Tedial launches Media Exchange Platform (MEP) for unique collaborative workflow Posted: 01/08/2014

Tedial, the leading independent MAM technology solutions specialist, is unveiling its new Media Exchange Platform (MEP) at IBC 2014 on stand 8.B41.


The multi-screen explosion means that broadcasters and telcos are faced with an unprecedented and often unpredictable increase in the amount of media they have to exchange with each other.  These exchanges take place during the production and post production processes and when packaging for delivery to multiple platforms. Undertaking thousands of drag-and-drop operations every day using fixed folders is inefficient and makes little sense at a business level. Its no longer enough to simply move thousands of media files over IP quickly and securely. Now broadcasters and telcos are also faced with the challenge of how to automatically manage and monitor the sheer amount of media and metadata thats being exchanged every day with their multiple media partners 24/7/365.  Adapting typical broadcast processes or relying on simple IP accelerators and transcoding is not scalable or cost-effective
