Business-driven and groundbreaking user experience

RTL Belgium took advantage of Perfect Memory’s MAM-as-a-Brain to connect non-communicating business divisions and automate the entire catalog processing chain (creation, indexation, enrichment).

Collect and Enrich Data

TV and Radio production systems feed the MAM in real-time, transforming data into actionable information.

Data coming from heterogeneous databases are collected, collated and transformed into comprehensible information, bridging the gap and providing a common language across different business teams. Through the MAM interface, data added by a TV operator in the News Production system becomes accessible, understandable and reusable by a radio editor from another team.

Content is also automatically indexed (Named Entity Recognition, Speech-to-text analysis, …) providing the final users with additional entry points.

Make Choices

Raffiné™ comes with reasoning capacities.

It provides the MAM with the ability to assist the business teams on making decisions. Below is an example of how high-level business rules defined by RTL Belgium archivists are interpreted and implemented by the MAM. If a video does not have a a proxy in high resolution then it is not available for broadcasting but it can be used for production.

Some production teams hold exclusive rights to their programs for a period of 15 days and thus should not be used by other teams within this time (editors, journalists, producers, …). Reuters Rushes can be used under specific conditions after a given delay.

The MAM-as-a-Brain makes choices and helps RTL Belgium business teams make their own.

Make It Available for Everyone

Once the content is collated and enriched, it becomes immediately available in our groundbreaking Graphical User Interface.

A Powerful Rights Management

Editorial restrictions are automatically tracked throughout the content lifecycle. Video editors know what they can use, when they can use them, and under which conditions. Identify contents with compliant restrictions and take advantage of the opportunity to reuse them.

A Full Integration with EVS Systems

The MAM is connected to EVS production ecosystem for both ingest and export operations. The latest version of the MAM is natively compliant with VIA, the very new EVS Newsroom platform.

RTL business teams can Play, Index and Exploit their EVS Media Assets within the MAM.
