What is jobDB?
jobDB is a workflow system which combines any kind and number of audio/video ingest stations and server-side tools into an effective digitisation facility. It offers thorough quality control and assurance on all levels, a multi-seated and labour seperated environment for ingest and quality control, highest flexibility on file formats and workflows, and much more.
The jobDB system allows users of ingestLINE and actLINE to set up workflows for the ingest, reshaping, and analysis of media as required for archiving, retranscoding, or other complex business processes. Designed to bring all the scalability and efficiency of automated processes to the media asset management environment, jobDB™ reduces the cost of setting up and executing workflows while allowing quality assurance standards within the workflow to be improved.
Serving as a backbone for ingestLINE and actLINE, jobDB allows the creation of ingest, reshaping, and QC workflows that greatly simplify the process of working with files, and which are scalable from one to many human operators or automated machines. The most common output of a jobDB system is a target file accompanied by side-car .xml files (ingest reports, file analysis reports, etc.) which are grabbed by an existing MAM, respectively delivered to a client.
