Content can be highly customized for delivery with automated packaging of metadata, videos, images and other content files for distribution to meet the requirements of each distribution outlet.
Distribute simultaneously to YouTube™, iTunes™, and cable operators. Avalon transcodes multiple media and metadata formats from a single source file and automates delivery to multiple outlets in each target output format. Don’t have all the metadata required? No problem. Missing data can be input before creating the packages.
Avalon supports the most popular distribution outlets through its flexible ADM framework. Telestream supports many industry standard specification formats (CableLabs, MRSS), as well as outlet-specific formats such as iTunes™ and MobiTV™.
ADM configuration allows customers to tweak provided ADMs to adjust for unique business needs.
A .NET API is provided to implement unique packaging and metadata format requirements for new distribution location. Custom ADMs can be used and configured in the same way as default ADMs.
Adaptation to custom workflows and navigating ever-changing format specifications is critical to business success. Avalon can be programmed through a service oriented architecture (SOA) web services API to create customized workflows to address evolving business needs. In short, it grows with you!
When distributing to a wide variety of outlets, the number of metadata elements required can explode dramatically. Agility 2G empowers users to customize values so they are only inputting data that is absolutely needed.
Status, event, error, and user interaction events are logged to a centralized utility. Administrators can access all logging data from a browser at any time to determine the overall health of the system.
Avalon is accessible through a new web based user interface. This utility provides a simple and intuitive interface for all administration, submission, status and management tasks, which runs in Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers to provide qualified users with remote access to all systems functions.
