The media & entertainment industry is going through an immense transformation with demands on technology, content distribution and competition from non-traditional sources of content. The industry must tackle each of those challenges. At the heart of this is the understanding of your own content through a consistent global view of the content & its metadata within your organization. Advancement in natural language processing and image analysis generate knowledge about your content that will help you drive automated workflows. This knowledgebase of your content combined with intimate understanding of customers’ preferences will enable content discovery as the success criteria for the future. Finally, automation in delivery of your content across the globe in multiple formats will drive newer opportunities.

Challenges of Today

The growth of a media organizations is hampered by some of the challenges listed below:

  • Workflows are designed to adopt around the capabilities (or lack thereof) of various products inducted into the pipeline over the years.
  • Workflows are linear, with output of one step blocking the progress of next step.
  • Workflow scaling to meet increased demands requires scaling of monolithic components without the ability to scale individual components.
  • Workflows lack automation and are heavily dependent on human touches to trigger workflows and make simple decisions.
  • Decentralized approach that worked previously in now the biggest challenge by creating silos within organization that duplicate effort & drive inefficiency and inconsistency.
  • Lack of truly scalable systems that can scale individual functions on demand.

What is Fuse Metadata Manager?

Fuse Metadata Manager gives you the tools to manage every aspect of your metadata. It provides a centralised view via an administrative console. This approach allows multiple teams and workflows to ingest, enrich, and distribute in a non-linear fashion

This approach solves the following challenges:

  • Eliminates silos created within the organizations through a centralized platform for metadata operations providing a single source of accurate and consistent metadata.
  • Provides a multi-tenant, multi-lingual platform to support a global organization.
  • Reduces manual work by building scalable, automated workflows to ingest, processing and enrich metadata allowing operators to focus on other critical issues.
  • Removes linear workflow dependencies by allowing parallel processing of the metadata via cloud based SaaS solutions.
  • Integrates with existing customer systems to ingest or distribute metadata through an adapter approach. Fuse Publisher – Provides the ability for the media organizations to automate the ingest, processing and delivery of their content with a clear view of the status of the workflows.
  • Cloud native solution provides ability to build truly scalable workflows with prioritization and ability to scale individual components on demand to fulfill regular or burstable delivery projects.
  • Reduces manual work by building automated workflows to ingest, process and distribute content allowing operators to focus on other critical issues.
  • Integrates with external and internal systems to build the end-to-end delivery workflows.
  • Drives efficiencies by eliminating duplication of assets, ability to migrate assets into cheaper storage class.
  • A usage based SaaS model provides predictable costs for content delivery operations and new distribution contracts.
