New features such as automated and customisable clip metadata and expanded device sharing have been added to the Dejero Control cloud-based management system.
New capabilities built upon the Dejero Control cloud-based management system allows users to automate and simplify their video workflows
Dejero has launched a range of new features within Dejero Control, a cloud-based system for the management of Dejero transmitters, servers and content.
First is an automated and customisable recorded clip metadata feature, which allows users in the field or back at the control room to edit and add metadata to clips via the Dejero Control interface. With this feature, station administrators can create a custom metadata template that is used across all clips to add relevant auto-generated metadata defined by the templates.
A metadata template is applied to all ingested clips at the station level, and users can select from a list of 10 pre-sets fields, such as geolocation and acquisition data — all auto-populated from the transmitter. Users can also add free-form fields that station operators can define to further organise recorded clips.
Todd Schneider, CTO at Dejero, explained: “With our new metadata feature, we are providing a means for broadcasters and media organisations to automate the generation of tagging of metadata, saving them valuable time and enabling them to speed up content retrieval and automate metadata-driven workflows.”
The next feature is the expanded device sharing capability that allows broadcasters to temporarily route a feed from a field transmitter to a partner station or broadcaster. Building upon this capability, broadcasters can also share access to receivers.
This, according to Dejero, adds flexibility to how stations integrate with other stations or freelancers in the field, as Dejero users can now send or receive video via the transmitters and receivers set up within the ‘device sharing’ feature in Control.
