Video Ecosystem
Flexible, scalable, engineered to simplify

The HARDATA SMART FLOW Ecosystem provides solutions for media asset management, workflow automation and remote control.

Media Asset Management: Web tools for cataloging video clips with customized marks and tags, advanced search function and integration with video editors. It includes automatic proxy transcoding and advanced user control.

Workflow Automation: Includes a number of background processes, including: automtic ingest from an agenda; transfer of recorded clips to centralized storage; proxy transcoding; management of free space on Playout servers; automatic synchronization of Playout servers from SMART FLOW servers based on the programming of each channel.

Remote Control: Allows remote operation of each Playout server channel (ingest or playout). Execution of operations is instant and secure because they are performed in the Playout server. If connection is disrupted, the Playout continues broadcasting with manual operation still available.

HARDATA INGEST 2320
Video recording in SD and HD - SDI based band

Designed to ease the workload involved with recording content for TV broadcast, the HARDATA INGEST server features advanced automation and full compatibility with other products in our Ecosystem.

The INGEST records two channels simultaneously and stores the video content, allowing the user to preview, catalog and insert markings and tags. The server offers a manual recording mode, the ability to program a recording schedule or control it remotely through VDCP protocol.

Once the recording is finished, the server can automatically transfer the clips to a SMART FLOW server, making the content readily available to editors and programmers.

HARDATA INGEST 2320

Two channels of simultaneous recording, preview or playout from the same equipment, start and end marks for editing or programming, automatic transfers.

 

Time-delay

The TIME-DELAY can be set for each channel and has three modes:

Censorship: Delays the emission to give the operator time in case he needs to block the audio or video or the emission of a forbidden image or audio.

Time-shift : It is used to adjust the Prime Time to each location.

Broadcast-delay: It allows to play while recording. It is very useful in case you know when you need to start the recording but not when to broadcast the event, and that you may need to start airing the event while still recording, as for example sports events. It supports Slow-Motion.

HARDATA SMART FLOW
Storage + Media Asset Management

HARDATA SMART FLOW series servers come with high-capacity storage and a MAM content management interface. This provides additional storage of digital files for the PLAYOUT and SMART server systems.

Video ingested on the INGEST 2320 servers can be automatically transferred to a SMART FLOW server, where a low-resolution proxy file is automatically generated.

By using HARDATA OFFICE workstations or through the multi-platform web access, you can manage content, visualize proxy copies, insert marks and tags for edition or programming, upload and download materials, perform advanced searches, or transfer materials between components of the Ecosystem. 

At the same time, by programming each station or modifying the playlist, the SMART FLOW system will automatically copy the changes to the playout server and synchronize all the materials in the playlist.
