What is mediARC?
mediARC is a flexible framework for Archive Asset Management, which allows for tightly integrated handling of both media content and its associated metadata, whilst putting interaction with the system under the control of a dedicated workflow engine.
Broadcasters and archivists today face a challenge when it comes to ensuring that media content is preserved and accessible for the long term. Many broadcasters see their media archive as the heart and soul of their organization. Yet the sheer number of content sources and formats, and the fact that content is constantly changing and evolving, makes it difficult to manage, especially when it comes to digitizing, describing, linking, and storing that content in a way that makes it easy to find and access. Broadcasters and archivists need an asset management system that can ingest, describe, archive, and deliver content so that it fits archival requirements not just for the present, but also for decades into the future. Whereas production departments typically focus only on the next playout date, archival description of content has to serve history, cultural identity, and cultural heritage.
mediARC connects to all ingestLINE processors and actLINE modules and also comes with an extended set of exclusively designed associated modules and functionalities. For more information on those mediARC-exclusive modules please see the "mediARC Modules" list to the left.
