Grass Valley Aurora
The highly-integrated Aurora suite is a scalable, high-performance, tapeless HD production suite for news, sports, and other demanding, time-sensitive applications. It fits into a workflow that spans acquisition, production, and playout.
Supported ENPS Workflow
This device allows ENPS to dynamically build and control a playlist within the media server. Changes to the Running Order in ENPS result in immediate changes to the sequence of media objects queued for playout by the media server.
This vendor sends real-time status information during playback and other functions which is displayed through ENPS writers and producers in real-time. This includes the use of a minimum set of standard status messages which enable color coding and the automated movement of the ENPS timing bar.
ENPS users can discover media stored on this device through the use of simple searches within ENPS. When a media description or link is found in ENPS, a user may simply click on the media to view it. The media can be linked to ENPS Running Orders, Stories and Assignments by simply dragging it into and ENPS document.
This product supports automatic redundant operation with both Primary and Buddy ENPS servers.
This vendor provides thumbnail images and proxy video which are closely integrated within the ENPS Story display and editing windows.
ENPS users can create and name placeholders within this vendor's server into which media can later be ingested or recorded. The vendor then updates ENPS with duration and other information as the placeholder is replaced with the actual media. Placeholders can be used to create "reservations" for material rushes, rough cuts or edits - arriving via ingest applications.
ENPS users can create and name placeholders within this vendor's media server into which edited content from an NLE can be saved.
ENPS can automatically create and name placeholders within this vendor's server into which finished clips ready for play out can later be edited, saved, or recorded. The name and other metadata used to automatically create this placeholder is drawn from the related ENPS Story and Running Order. The vendor then updates ENPS with duration and other information as the placeholder is replaced with the actual media.
This product enables ENPS users to directly assign media play-out channels from the ENPS Running Order.
The vendor builds on the basic ActiveX functionality to provide drag and drop of media pointers between the ActiveX control and ENPS documents and the ability to run the plug-in in a detached window.
This product uses the full body of text within ENPS documents, including all media pointers and custom metadata. This product also dynamically tracks the sequence of Stories and Assignments within active ENPS Running Orders and Assignment grids.
This device sends ENPS a description of the media it stores. The description contains structured metadata and a pointer to the media object. This information is used by ENPS to return media in search results. Pointers are used to link media to ENPS documents, including Stories, Running Orders and Assignments using simple drag and drop workflow.
This product works with ENPS to transfer media between machines and locations using instruction and metadata from ENPS. When stories containing media are moved from one ENPS location in ENPS to another this vendor offers the option to automatically transfer the media contained in the stories without further user interaction. This can be used to automatically transfer media between servers and NLE's within a single newsroom, or between multiple newsrooms and production servers in different cities.
This vendor provides an interface within their NLE product that not only allows an NLE operator to select and display live stories within ENPS, but also allows the NLE operator to drag and drop media contained in the ENPS story to the NLE timeline.
This vendor provides an ActiveX plug-in for ENPS which allows users to view media objects, search for media objects, change media object, edit associated metadata, allow users to drag and drop media objects to ENPS stories, and allow users to drag and drop media object from ENPS stories to the Grass Valley plug-in.
