Building a scalable MAM system

Building a scalable MAM system | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

In today’s file-based, software-orientated world, a MAM system must offer services for content processing and manipulation.


For a media asset management (MAM) system to be truly valuable, it must offer much more than a repository for content with associated metadata and storage services. In today’s file-based, software-orientated world, a MAM system must offer services for content processing and manipulation. In doing so, it orchestrates people and wider enterprise resources. Media processing is key to putting content to work in the world of post production, broadcast and distribution. Such processing can happen outside a MAM system or inside as an integrated system. Either way, processing high volumes of large media files requires careful thought.

Migrating from Final Cut Server

Migrating from Final Cut Server | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Many of us have been using Apple’s Media Asset Management solution Final Cut Server (FCSvr). Despite its shortcomings like missing rough cut editor, no native tape support for archives, lack of decent UTF-8 level 3 support when importing and exporting XML files, even today, almost two years after its last update and more than six months after Apple has dropped it, Final Cut Server seems to be the best asset management and workflow automation system for FCP7 clients.

 

Yet, though Apple still sells Final Cut Studio (FCS), sooner or later it won’t run on the latest Apple hardware anymore, so we need to consider switching over to FCPX, Adobe Premiere, or probably Avid Media Composer as soon as Apple drops FCS support with their latest hardware.Final Cut Server doesn’t support project files of these editors (apart from Premiere using FCP7 XML structures), so a big part of its functionality can’t be used with the latest editors. In addition, Apple won’t fix any FCSvr bugs anymore, so you can’t really add functionality to your FCSvr based workflows.

 

Long story short, you might want to consider replacing FCSvr with a modern Asset Management and Workflow Automation solution sooner or later.There are a couple of tools you might wanna look at, e.g. Cantemo Portal DAM, CatDV, ConSol* FocalPoint, Flavoursys Strawberry.
