Cisco Advanced Video Technologies


Cisco announced the next generation Videoscape AnyRes multi-function software-based encoder and transcoder solution which now support  4K video and the new HEVC compression standard for both VOD and live broadcast. The enhancement also improves  current compression standards such as MPEG2 and AVC.

They were also demonstrating a technology that could query a datastore – either online or internal – to complete metadata schema for media assets that match certain criteria. For example, if Duke Library already had a good deal of biographical information on a researcher, if additional media assets were uploaded, it could query that database and bring over that metadata rather than requiring it be re-entered. Only unique metadata for that asset would need to be entered.

Metus Mam


Metus MAM system offers a well designed interface with standard MAM features such as file ingest, transcode and export, version tracking as well as integration with many editing systems. They offer security at the asset, even the field level per user and can connect with Active Directory for provisioning. They also use a concurrent user license along with metering of how much storage you are managing but the software is installed on our local servers.
