How to efficiently manage transfers form an Avid MediaCentral|Production Management (Avid Interplay) environment to the external world?

Whether you want to send to playout, transfer to an archive system or publish your content on the web, you need media and metadata to be processed simultaneously, and you want to get a centralized view of all the transfers.
Furthermore, whenever the destination of the media is a distant or remote site, you need to rely on accelerated transfer technologies to compensate network latency. Archive of content in the cloud is also a growing need, encouraged by the reduction of storage costs and increase of available bandwidth.

Woody Outgest is designed to automate and centralize transfers from Avid environment to an external storage (playout server, cloud infrastructure, or archive system…), handling simultaneously media, technical metadata and editorial content.

Woody Outgest reads media to be transferred (masterclips or sequences) directly from Avid NEXIS storage and transcode it to the expected target format.

Woody Outgest can extract and transfer technical metadata from Avid PAM (Interplay), but also from the newsroom system iNews.

When it’s necessary, Woody Outgest controls Avid Production Services to request the mixdown of the sequence to be transferred.

Benefiting of transfer acceleration technologies such as Aspera Fasp and FileCatalyst, as well as Amazon S3 and Azure Blob cloud storage integrations, Woody Outgest offers to Woody Technologies customers a unique solution for archive or broadcast of their content on a distant site, which is particularly relevant for broadcasters having regional production facilities or playout subcontractors.
