Primestream Brings IP Stream Ingest, Integrated Review and amp; Approval, 4K UHD End-to-End Workflow, plus Centralized Configuration and an Xchange Public API to NAB 2018

With new formats, storage and delivery methods capturing and managing media has become more complex. To address these issues, at NAB 2018, Primestream®, the leader in dynamic media management, will showcase new technology enhancements that advance today’s media landscape.

Media Over IP

Today, IP streaming comes 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 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 – then quickly move that content through to production, management and delivery. Users can preview proxies and live recording within a web browser, manage signal-paths 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 IP streams such as HD-SDI and 3G-SDI using standard off-the-shelf hardware by AJA®.

Review & Approval System

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.

Simplified Configuration

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.
