Easy and Flexible File Ingest

Ultimate Flexibility

Every file operation is executed by a specialized actLINE processor within a workflow, ensuring configurability, customization, flexibility, and scalability.

File Detection

FolderScanner uses a pre-defined set of parameters and conditions to scan multiple folders, detect matching media and metadata files and file sets and trigger appropriate workflows.

File Moving

FileCollector moves all media and metadata files and file sets with appropriate filenames to the General Public Path (GPP) central storage for further processing.

File Processing

Depending on the workflow, individual actLINE processors pick files from GPP and perform their processing tasks as defined in the task's parameters. This allows very high flexibility and offers a great deal of customization.
