Create the perfect media workflow for production and broadcasting

When it comes to the postproduction phase of your show, program or clips, schedules and projects can be hectic and time consuming especially when it comes to collaboration with your team, freelancers, commissioning editors, dubbing studios and further partners. And, most importantly, keeping your produced media safe and secure, so nothing will be leaked before the release date.

So how do industry leaders like RTL and Talpa manage and control their media files? They trust MediaLab. Also production and distribution companies like Warner Bros., Fabiola, Fremantle and Studio 100 have successfully integrated the MediaLab platform into their daily operations.

Distributing and transferring media

Facilitate easy and secure transferring of large media files for your team, freelancers, partners or clients, whether it is in UHD/4K, 8K or beyond. Your uploaded files remain yours without interference of third parties. Every link in your production chain, both internally as externally, will be able to upload or share from the media management tool instantly. Freelancers and suppliers can be given access to upload their own material and you can enable different teams, from acquisition to press, to upload or view the media as well. Your media traffic is no longer confined to one workplace or one device and is available without limitations in size and at lightning speed.

Collect media

Uploaded media can be distributed in various ways to match your workflow and can also be integrated by pushing files to external FTP servers or cloud buckets. Need a file from a teammate or supplier in time for the broadcasting deadline?  Send them an invite link and they can upload the file in the designated folder that you have selected. Either from their desktop or with our iOS and Android app.

MediaLab enables teams to collaborate by spotting and commenting on media, thereby keeping iteration rounds moving quickly and getting all media material to be broadcast-ready faster.

Power your iteration cycles by sending media for review to clients or your team. Enabling easy and structured communication, letting them work with the most recent version of the media you want them to use. Gather and receive comments quickly, without any downloading of large files. Enrich the content by adding meta data to improve indexing.

Keep track of media

Mobile media

Archiving and storing media

In daily business of creating broadcasting material, the volume of media content that is produced grows by the minute. You need a place to receive all this content and it needs a place to go after broadcasting. Never lose any of your media content by storing and archiving your creations in a secure cloud. With meta data you can index your media and you will always be able to retrieve any digital media asset when requested by a client or to reuse again. Manage content libraries, where all digital media assets are centralized, according to the organization’s identity guidelines.

Hybrid Cloud

MediaLab is flexible enough that it provides dedicated on-premise platforms, running on hardware in your own datacentre or in a private cloud on Azure or Amazon. Your Lab can be configured with archiving options in the private or public cloud to securely store the high-res source files for long term storage.

Centralize and secure media

Archive any media in your Lab, so you will always have all your files accessible through one portal.  With team level security and Single Sign On, you can rest assured that all your files are stored safe and secure, giving you and your team more time to focus on your postproduction process.

Transcoding media

Your media portal can be configured with different transcoding profiles for uploaded content. However, since we know some of our clients prefer to do their own transcoding, we provide custom pull profiles to add transcoded versions to your media files inside MediaLab. Hook up your Vantage transcoding system to an FTP profile and your files will appear automatically.
