ROOT6 Technology Demonstrates V3 software for ContentAgent (20/8/2010)

Integration with third party expertise and distributed rendering are key features of new software demonstrated at IBC.

ROOT6 Technology will demonstrate V3 software for ContentAgent, the universal file transcoding and workflow automation tool. The latest software iteration, shipping from IBC, builds on ContentAgent's established capabilities in transcoding, metadata management and workflow automation with the integration of third party expertise from industry leaders Tektronix, Telestream and Rimage. V3 software also delivers the benefits of parallel processing - extremely important in transcode-intensive environments . A new Jobs tab in the familiar User Interface delivers the tools to intelligently manage and distribute work to additional rendering capability.

For broadcasters wishing to incorporate fully automated Quality Control into a file-based workflow, ContentAgent now supports Tektronix Cerify, the leading QC system for file-based content. Both video and audio files can now be QC'd automatically at any or every stage of the broadcast chain. ContentAgent's workflow designer is used to create the appropriate template which is then infinitely repeatable by non-technical operators. The integration with Episode Engine brings ContentAgent's comprehensive workflow management and automation tools to the Mac QuickTime environment (Including Apple's ProRes encoder.)

Building on the popular automated DVD authoring feature in the original system, integration with Rimage Digital Publishing Systems makes ContentAgent the heart of an all-embracing DVD and Blu-ray production system - from transcoding and authoring to label design and high quality disc printing. Like all ContentAgent workflows, the process may be fully automated and operated by non-technical staff.

"The integration of leading third party technologies is a huge benefit to existing and future customers," said Owen Walker, Head of Product Management at ROOT6 Technology. "Now they are free to deploy best-of-breed solutions integrated with the proven and popular ContentAgent workflow automation tools. Many of our customers use ContentAgent as the natural heart of their file-based workflow and the ability to incorporate an increasing number of third party applications will serve to strengthen that position."
