The introduction of MediaCentral Acquire adds ingest management to MediaCentral Cloud UX, advancing Avid’s news production solution by enabling content production teams to collaborate from anywhere.
To keep up with the growing demand for content, broadcasters need to automate their workflows more efficiently. Avid’s new MediaCentral Acquire ingest scheduler app in MediaCentral Cloud UX automates ingest scheduling for SDI and IP sources by controlling FastServe Ingest, FastServe I/O and MediaCentral Stream. MediaCentral Acquire also supports Edit While Capture workflows for faster turnaround, while enabling ingest management from anywhere using only a web browser.
This release also builds on MediaCentral’s extensive media production capabilities with new features like the ability to synchronize content across different sites with MediaCentral | Sync and a completely redesigned MediaCentral Collaborate mobile app. These give production teams even greater flexibility in how they work, from story creation all the way to delivery, whether that is a rundown-based on-air show, or content for online platforms and social media.
