Aylesbury, UK – TransMedia Dynamics (TMD), a company specializing in the development and delivery of solutions and services to the global media, broadcast and archive industries, has added enhanced multi-platform functionality to its Mediaflex asset management system.
An extension to the Mediaflex Publish module ensures that content is delivered to online distribution networks such as Amazon, iTunes or a VoD service, with the correct metadata schema automatically imposed.
One of the major challenges for multi-platform content delivery is ensuring that the correct metadata in the right format is packaged and delivered either with the essence or as a separate transfer. The most common reason for content to be rejected by online delivery networks is that the metadata is incorrect or incomplete. To eliminate errors without adding to the workload, TMD has added the ability for the users to define templates of schemas for each delivery platform. These templates are populated at the point of delivery, ensuring each network receives a perfect file.
