See how eMAM can help your organization

Government and military

eMAM delivers on time and under budget. The interfaces are easy to use, maximizing acceptance and minimizing training. Behind the scenes, the system has the tools and security needed by the agency. Using a standard Microsoft technology stack and published APIs, eMAM can be integrated into your internal systems by your team or yours.

Museums and non-profit

eMAM can power appealing websites loaded with features for video, audio, images, and documents. Authorized users can easily upload content and then collaborate and share the content through email or social media. eMAM can send easily send mixed media emails for outreach. Options for a system on site, in the cloud, or mixed to meet the needs of different organizations.

Communications

Move from manual inefficient processes to automated workflows. eMAM supports any type of digital asset, with extensive tools for challenging video content.

Authorized staff or customers can use a browser or tablet to access the entire library of current and historical content for the entire agency to place orders for fulfillment. Restricted assets will not be available for unauthorized users, or your staff can deny inappropriate requests due to rights, authorization, or other issues (e.g. downloading high resolution video over a dial up line).

Using the unique identifier for each digital asset, your staff can efficiently process orders. eMAM manages proxies for sharing and ordering and the native resolution content in any storage or archive location.

Staff can send links using social media systems such as Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, and Google+. They can also send branded mixed media emails with video, images, and other files which have security settings for forwarding, downloading, and expiration dates.

The delivery functionality will automatically grab the native resolution file from any storage or archive system. eMAM manages server based transcoding using Harmonic ProMedia Carbon or WFS or transcoding with automated workflows through Telestream Vantage, so almost any format or codec can be generated as needed. eMAM also integrates with UDP file acceleration systems Aspera, Signiant, and File Catalyst. Staff can use preset delivery locations to FTP locations, CDNs, or other destinations. eMAM is developing integrated multiformat, multiplatform, multidevice delivery options with Brightcove and other delivery partners.

Staff can use eMAM Online or a customized platform instead of using several of the common online platforms to better control permissions, history, and analytics.

Information Technology

eMAM is based on best of breed technologies and processes

  • Microsoft Server, running on dedicated machines or VMs
  • Microsoft SQL, with search based on its advanced protocols. Standard backup procedures can be used.
  • Service Oriented Architecture, which allows both enterprise scaling as well as a true hybrid deployment between different on premise and/or cloud storage and processing locations.
  • Storage agnostic, so eMAM can support almost any shared network device.
  • Cloud storage and processing using Microsoft or Amazon technologies or the ComputeNext ecosystem.
  • Extensive configuration from the Super Admin Console allows companies to set up the system and make changes without customization
  • Established API and SDK using SOAP, with RESTful under development.

It is easy to support eMAM.

  • One centralized library system to provide access to all of the content from all the locations.
  • One simple system to minimize training and support while maximizing user acceptance.
  • Nothing to install and support on local desktops, except for eMAM Feeder ingest application and native iPad and Android apps.

eMAM can support complete, integrated workflows

  • A series of technology integrations to power combined workflows.
  • eMAM Feeder can support remote ingest from any Mac, Windows or Linux desktop for DPX sequences, text, graphics, and a variety of camera formats. Whether through scanning or drag and drop, complex folder structures are maintained.
  • eMAM can support storage in almost any storage system. Tiered storage management through eMAM or Quantum Storage Manager.
  • eMAM supports all leading archive management systems, including , XenData, Atempo ASG, Archiware P5, SGL FlashNet, Front Porch Diva, 1Beyond EZ Stor, and Quantum StorNext
  • Mezzanine editing-using edit proxies with a final conform to hires- lightens the load on the network when multiple editors are pulling high definition video from the same storage and network.
  • Extensive support for Adobe Anywhere workflows, which allows worldwide real time collaborate editing using standard internet connections while keeping native resolution files secured on premise according to IT security policies.

Use of proxy copies for sharing and collaboration minimizes processing, storage, and transmission. eMAM also minimizes duplicate storage and countless needless downloads. IT staff can push project details, scrum reports, processes, and specifications by email or provide users access to appropriate (sub) categories of assets.

SECURITY

Multiple security levels restrict user permissions and access in the system. Granular permission settings control almost every system function. LDAP/Active Directory can be used to set up user groups, which maps to categories of allowed assets.

Soft digital rights management including tags, descriptions, and color coding to indicate permissions. Hard restrictions including placement in restricted categories and subcategories and triggers based on metadata settings (e.g. expiration trigger).

archivist

Your mission is to ensure important content is digitized and preserved, while still being accessible.

eMAM Feeder is a local ingest system from any Mac, Linux, or PC desktop Users can drag and drop or scan folders, organize into (sub) categories and projects, tag with comments and metadata, and choose a storage location: keep in the source location, copy it, or move it to centralized storage. The Feeder preserves the complex folder structure of the source storage, which is key for editing and processing many camera formats. Feeder will restart the ingest process if it loses a connection. It can also use UDP file acceleration for faster transfer times.

eMAM manages the generation of proxy copies for sharing and web based collaboration. This can be done locally through Adobe Premiere, through open source transcoding systems, or almost any system though a command line interface. The H264 MP4 for video sharing and collaboration could also be generated directly by many cameras. It can also use Telestream Vantage, Harmonic ProMedia Carbon, or Harmonic WFS for server based transcoding.

Metadata is the key for search. Camera metadata comes in automatically. External metadata can come at ingest through XML or entered in the Feeder. After ingest, users can also enter metadata through the eMAM web or tablet interfaces. eMAM can collect metadata fields into groups, which can then be organized into sets. This allows the appropriate metadata fields are associated with the correct user groups and the correct assets.

Digitization preserves the important content for the organization. It can turn a liability into a viable asset that can be monetized or retasked by the organization. eMAM allows multiple ingest options to streamline the process. Metadata tags and labels can be entered separately, at ingest, or after ingest. Users can QC or provide feedback about the digitization during the process. eMAM can manage the content in almost any storage system in any on premise or cloud location. It can also directly most of the common archive systems to store the content in an LTO or ODA library, which gives a powerful solution for permanent storage at a fraction of the cost. With the eMAM system keeping proxy copies and metadata, users can easily access and share the archived content, so there is an accessible digital library for all of the content at a fraction of the cost.

Productions

eMAM provides extensive support for proxy based workflows while managing native content in almost any on premise or cloud storage and archive system.

No need to push everything to a cloud or centralized storage when eMAM can manage local storage together with cloud storage, central storage, and archive from the same system.

No need to reshoot b-roll of the same scene again when eMAM serves up an online digital library of all historical content. eMAM powers marking, logging, tagging, organization, review/approval, sharing links, and digital delivery for authorized users using light weight proxy copies from the web or tablet interfaces. Hires content can be securely and cheaply stored in a LTO or ODA archive and delivered whenever needed for edit or broadcast.

eMAM manages the generation of proxy copies for sharing and web based collaboration. Using different transcoding systems, eMAM can support almost any format or codec from DNX HD to DPX. This can be done locally through Adobe Premiere, through open source transcoding systems, or almost any system though a command line interface. If the camera or ingest system makes a H264 MP4 proxy for video, then eMAM can use that. eMAM can also manage Telestream Vantage, Harmonic ProMedia Carbon, or Harmonic WFS for server based transcoding.

Metadata is key for driving search. The camera metadata comes in automatically. External metadata can come at ingest through XML or can be entered in the Feeder, with some fields requiring values for input. After ingest, users can also enter metadata through the eMAM web or tablet interfaces. eMAM can collect metadata fields into groups, which can then be organized into sets. This allows the appropriate metadata fields are associated with the correct user groups and the correct type of assets.

eMAM gives remote and non-technical staff to the edit bay, managing the media and the workflow. eMAM users can search clips, mark, annotate, subclip, and create story boards/sequences. FCP XML can be used to link to FCP 7 editors. Media Composer can be linked with AAF workflows from Telestream Vantage or through Marquis Project Parking /Medway/Sequence Parking, XMF Server, or Strawberry. eMAM features extensive support for Adobe Premiere Pro editors for multiple workflows through a built-in extension panel for support before, during, and after the editing process. eMAM also extends the reach of Adobe Anywhere to support ingest and archive, as well providing access to non-editors.

After editing, eMAM can be used to share links for review and approval, social media, and branded email marketing. eMAM manages the native resolution content, so it can set up complex automated workflows using Telestream Vantage, digital delivery to broadcast servers, publishing to OVP,OTT,VOD, or other platforms, or to any other location with transcoding as needed to any location with FTP or file acceleration UDP systems.
