Unnecessarily duplicating content just to serve distribution needs does not make sense today! Move into a component-based media workflow like IMF with Ateliere Connect so that you only store differences between versions.
If creating individual versions to meet the numerous compliance requirements, languages and localization needs makes your move to the cloud expensive, Ateliere can help streamline your versioning and highly reduce your cloud storage needs.
Use the Ateliere calculator to visualize storage savings. Input your storage & title figures and gather cost savings based on the AWS storage tier used. For large media companies, savings could amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.
Ateliere’s proprietary FrameDNA™ AI/ML drives Deep Analysis to automatically detect identical video frames in media files and frames that differ or are unique. This effectively deduplicates and consolidates content versions.
Ateliere proprietary FrameDNA AI/ML works by fingerprinting every frame in the image track of a file upon ingest. Based on structural similarities, it identifies the scenes that are different, allowing for easy comparison.
Deep Analysis can automatically extract the clips with the differences. Because FrameDNA engages this workflow through parallel processing & auto-scaling, scanning and identifying the clips only takes minutes.
Use AI/ML to find texted/textless, slates, bar and black frames and store the results in a markup track that you can use to build versions or create ad-insert points.
Deep Analysis converts the results of its scan into a base CPL (the Original Version) that contains your original material, as well as various supplemental Composition PlayLists (CPLs) that describe how to combine your original material and deltas together to compose your different versions. And it’s all automated!
With the integrated and interactive Ateliere Connect dashboard, users can monitor deduplication progress, review all titles and IMF essences, keeping control at all times.
Less duplicates to QC, less costs! To illustrate, a 90 minute movie in English that requires French and Spanish versions would typically have three fixed-time QC checks. Instead, using CPLs containing only differing elements, such as subtitles, dramatically lowers the time and costs of full, individual checks.
Lower costs mean you maximize the dollar value of your content library. Less complexity, more efficiency, easier scalability and a wider range of monetization services.
