From Creation to Delivery with ONE Software for Lowest Total Cost of Operations (TCOP)
To conquer today’s digital universe, content creators need to look beyond the traditional approach of working with multiple solutions to manage content operations across various departments and locations. There is a pressing need to deploy ONE Software for the enterprise, embrace automation across the supply chain, and leverage the untapped power of AI to achieve business goals.
PFT’s flagship product, CLEAR™ is the world’s first, proven multi-cloud-enabled Media ERP Suite that automates the content supply chain. CLEAR helps M&E companies drive creative enablement, enhance efficiencies, realize new monetization opportunities and reduce Total Cost of Operations (TCOP) like no other.
PFT will be showcasing the latest power-packed updates to CLEAR at IBC 2019. Here’s a glimpse:
A media recognition AI engine that provides the best quality of data in both entertainment and sports, along with highly sophisticated tools which have been tailor-made for solving strategic use cases. Dovetailed to the industry’s leading off-the-shelf AI engines and PFT’s very own models, Vision Cloud’s Machine Wisdom technology addresses specific pain points by delivering accurate and actionable data.
- AI for Sports: Automatically tracks sports action and creates highlights & packages in near real-time to engage with fans like never before. It helps sports producers cut down the time and effort involved in highlight creation by 60% and enables OTT platforms to deliver high levels of interactivity and personalization for consumers.
- AI for Content Discovery and Search: Automatically identifies logical scenes and searchable clips in content and provides accurate, actionable, contextual and comprehensive sets of metadata. It helps significantly reduce the time involved in identifying clips for promo creation, as well as syndication and distribution of content to OTT platforms.
- AI for Conformance: Automatically does conformance and also serves as a smart Video comparator. It identifies time in/time out from original footage and detects the clips used in the final edit. This reduces the time and effort spent on Conformance, making the process of Remastering pre-HD era content in newer resolutions like 4K/8K faster and more cost-effective.
- AI for OTT & Traffic Operations: Automatically identifies unrequired segments like blacks, slates, recaps, pre-caps, ads, montages and credits from long-form content, promos and spots, with frame accuracy. It removes the segments which are unrequired for OTT platforms, making OTT & Traffic Operations more efficient.
- AI for Playout Monitoring: Enables broadcasters and monitoring bodies to identify and measure ads, promos and program segments directly from playout. It features an innovative AI-led hybrid workflow, where AI identifies the content and human operators perform Quality Check (QC) on these results.
An online/SaaS collaboration suite that provides all team members – from a small team to thousands of users – a secure, one-stop-shop for all their production needs. From pre-production location and test footage to scripts and prep documents to Dailies to VFX footage to every single cut to all marketing materials – users can easily and securely access and manage all project assets in Production Cloud.
Adopting centralization helps broadcasters reduce the global effort involved in international broadcast operations, promo operations and distribution.
- CLEAR Ingest & Distribution for Station Groups: CLEAR Ingest & Distribution provides ONE Software to simplify end-to-end workﬂows for Satellite and Terrestrial distribution. It integrates and automates ingest, prep, QC and distribution workﬂows, while providing real time dashboards and notiﬁcation alerts to operations teams.
- Centralization of International Broadcast Operations: With CLEAR, broadcasters get ONE MAM across all global sites, which uniﬁes various departments, vendors and distributors across the content supply chain, along with native Work Order Management functionality.
- Centralization of Promo Operations Automation: CLEAR provides business process orchestration for promo creation, with auto assist versioning & delivery. Broadcasters can leverage CLEAR to make ONE set of promos centrally and distribute these globally, rather than editing a fresh set of promos in each territory. These can then be localized as required.
A central, secure, work order managed solution for content acquisition and the associated processes - including evaluation, editorial, enrichment & archival. The solution enables users to perform work order-based ingest, execute automated task breakdown, assign tasks to best-fit resources/vendors and track the status of all tasks conveniently through a unified dashboard.
A solution that makes domestic and international syndication across linear and non-linear platforms more efficient and cost-effective. It leverages CLEAR's Caption Re-timing feature and smart tool for compliance auto QC for captions & subtitles, along with PFT's AI-led technology for Compliance cataloguing & editing.
