1. Longform content management.
In this scenario, Cantemo Portal is used to manage longform programming, such as TV series, films, and other programmes. Rules can be established to trigger what happens to a piece of content at a given time in the workflow. For example, this could be transcoding it into a different format, file movement, or metadata transformation, amongst many other things.
2. Short form promo management.
When it comes to handling short form content, such as promotional videos, the approach can be very different. Broadcasters will have a great deal of information which needs to be attributed to each campaign, such as how many different channels it will go out on, length of each of the promos, with potentially different versions needed for different channels. It will also change as the item being advertised gets closer. In these instances, Portal can help organise and deliver different versions for different channels or different days and times.
3. News gathering
In most broadcast organisations, there will be different types and teams of user gathering news or content from the field. For the quick breaking news stories, the teams will be looking to ingest the recorded video into Cantemo Portal as quickly as possible, whist in the field, so it can be reviewed and a decision can be made on whether the content is worth publishing in very little timeframe. Other teams will be generating long form or commercial content, which will have different, generally longer workflows. Having existing content easily searchable and usable within Portal means that journalists can bring in existing assets to further support their stories.
Portal helps those news organisations handle multiple teams, with clearly defined workflows for each team. They are also generally looking for seamless integration with the archive so footage can be exported to archive, yet still be easy to find and track what can and cannot be re-used and for what purposes.
In all three scenarios, Portal will likely be used for reviewing and sharing assets for approval, delivering final masters to be sent for transmission, archiving masters to remove from high performance storage to archive storage, and helping to deliver finished programs.
