Zapata: Tedial’s goal is to aid media companies that need to do more remotely

The new version now includes a tool for the ingest list which creates ingest placeholders before an event is recorded. It allows the production team to be more efficient by creating the scheduling information using the metadata in advance of the event, before the team knows which router will record the event. When the router input has been defined, the system automatically allocates the physical ingest channel. Tedial claims that this workflow reduces the time spent managing the ingest process and gives greater visibility to what’s coming next.

A second new tool in the new release orchestrates scheduling using a timeline view, per ingest channel and provides dynamic allocation of ingest channels. It’s agnostic to third-party technology and to video servers. It also enables connection to traffic systems and the API allows operators to manage an end-to-end ingest workflow. Programme scheduling is created in the traffic system, which allocates a placeholder on the ingest list. Tedial’s Capture Manager tools then automatically control the router and dynamically switch the input at the time of the recording.

Emilio L. Zapata, CEO of Tedial, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the move to remote working across the world. It’s our aim to ensure that broadcasters and content owners have efficient automated, end-to-end workflows that provide a centralised UI for controlling and monitoring devices, significantly improving ingest time management and scheduling visibility.”
