Fully automate the editing process to remove or replace advertisements, add promos and rebrand onair or cable broadcast content and transcode for all distribution partners.
Edit on-air broadcasts into segments, create lower third titles with dynamically updated reporter name and story title by-line and format for television, broadband and mobile distribution.
Assemble on-screen reporter audio, video, image sequences and overlays to create weather updates for hundreds of cities and regions with no manual intervention required
Produce all of the versions for international distribution as a single job submission. Templates define the various permutations of deliverables – for segment ordering, language dubs, frame rate conversion, localized captioning and subtitling, and audio track mapping – and then submit them with the mastered promo. Vantage Post Producer will conform each regional deliverable to specifications.
Automate credit squeeze back and speed up, and superimpose promo video and audio to build promo segments on-the-fly.
Reorder video segments, remove ad black, insert interstitial video and audio, or add SMPTE 35 or Black Arrow ad markets to monetize VOD assets.
