Native Transcoding Bridges Systems and Time
Optional, native transcoding automatically transforms content you retrieve from the archive into the correct format needed by your production, distribution or playout systems – even if they’ve changed since you archived the media. This transparently bridges format incompatibilities between disparate systems, while ensuring that content archived long ago is still easily retrieved and used. You can also optionally transcode your assets to a specified bitrate and format before writing them to the archive.
Seamless Integration with Your Environment
Featuring direct integration interfaces for all popular production, automation, playout, storage and distribution tools and systems, Masstech archiving solutions work seamlessly within your current technical environment while removing workflow barriers. Deep, native integrations eliminate the need for ‘hot’ folder based file interchange, maximizing efficiency while streamlining formerly complex workflows.
