Media centric organisations of all sizes are seeking to improve efficiency across all aspects of their business due to the exponential rise in the volume of content as well as the increase in delivery platforms. The ability therefore to implement a ‘joined up’ and efficient process model across an organisation is paramount to it succeeding. Implementation of a workflow environment that delivers tangible benefits in the creation, preparation, management and delivery of media content is critical.
Mediaflex is specifically designed to meet these challenges by delivering a highly flexible, innovative and integrated platform for collaborative media business management. It provides both an operational environment in which to carry out media processes as well as a management environment for monitoring.
The intuitive and flexible graphical designer eliminates the need for specialist development staff to script or modify particular workflow processes. In short it puts the customer back in control of their operation. It also provides a dynamic status driven schedule that enables users to track the progress of each job as it flows through the organisation. Updates appear in near real time on every screen as users and operators carry out their roles. In addition messages can be triggered to be sent when specific events occur during the progress of the job.
Mediaflex CI (Content Intelligence) is an integrated element of the Mediaflex Workflow business process management platform. IT enables metadata mining from the content essence files along with metadata held within the Mediaflex Meta Server. Mediaflex CI enables the automation and orchestration of workflows based on metadata values thus significantly reducing operational costs and improving efficiency across the entire content lifecycle.
