Ingest Manager (in Version 7 UP1)
Ingest Manager is a consolidated solution for Vantage that streamlines content
handling for broadcasters and network operation facilities. It includes the tools
needed to enable internal or external personnel in any department to ingest,
review, approve, and reconcile media inventory versus required content, to
ensure content is quality-checked, adjusted by Vantage, and ready for air.
IngestManager saves money by reducing content processing time and errors.
This means fewer misplaced or "bad" files and a much more efficient content
approval workflow—all managed from a central Vantage content database. Note: IngestManager is sold only outside the US and Canada.
