Video LibraryProfessional and secure video interface
Promote your videos thanks to dematerialization. Opsomai will guide you in each step of the migration of your audiovisual capital and production, towards a 100% digital management.
When a video library becomes entirely digital, it generally implies that all the recorded archives (or the majority of it) must be digitalized on supports of various formats. Opsomai offers a global approach in order to guide you in this process. First of all, the videotape digitalization can be carried out internally, thanks to automatic digitalization solutions integrated in Opsis Media and used daily by important archives centers such as Gaumont Pathé Archives.
For the supports that are hard to automate like 1 and 2inches tapes or bands, the digitalization can be done manually and internally or can be given to Opsomai. Indeed, Opsomai can take care of implementing your digitalization plan thanks to its network of audiovisual provider partners. As for the recent productions, in standard or high definition, Opsis Media takes care of all the formats in the market. Whether the source comes directly from a camera (memory stick, hard drives, Professional Disc…) our from an Apple or Avid editing station, Opsis Media imports automatically the associated media and metadata in order to generate the document matching with its watching format.
Indexing: legal and document processing
When a video library becomes entirely digital, it implies generally a re-use of the existing data. Therefore, Opsomai has developed a great expertise in imports from the main market’s databases (Basis Plus, Convera, Netia, Taurus, WestRush…). Of course, you can start creating your new database by using a labeling with Excel.
Once you have initialized your base, Opsis Media provides al the document tools necessary to your programs’ indexing: controlled data capture, hierarchic thesaurus, multilingualism, material management… Furthermore, thanks to its steady architecture, Opsis Media currently manages databases containing more than several hundred thousand documents with thesaurus of several dozen thousand terms. For some applications, it can be useful to use a semi-automatic indexing. Opsis Media offers several tools as an option, among which a transcription motor for the soundtrack.
Finally, since the license management is a major issue in the audiovisual sector, Opsis Media offers a whole set of tools to face this issue: description of existing licenses, whether it deals with sequence, images or audio purchase; the declaration of the assignees, of their role and their transfer percentage depending on how they are used: the automatic calculation of refunds on program sales.
De-rushing and online editing
Even when a video lasts only a few minutes, it requires many hours of editing and some sequences of that video can be re-used. This is why Opsis Media provides you with an efficient de-rushing tool which enables you to define your sequences on any PC or MAC, with all the usual professional tools: precise display of the time code, fast forward and backward options, Jog/Shuttle… Furthermore, since Opsis Media is a « full Web » application, this tool is available transparently via Internet. Finally, if some of your productions are directly de-rushed in an Avid or Apple editing software, Opsis Media can import these information in order to generate automatically the matching sequences in databases. When it comes to re-using some images, it is often useful to use a pre-editing in order to validate the sequences’ selection, in a company, to produce a film that can be used directly in a multimedia presentation. Opsis Media integrates an online editing module very easy to use: you select the documents you are interested in, you move them to the timeline after cropping them, if necessary, and then, you can watch your video! Are you satisfied with your work? If so, you can immediately download your editing in a watching format or ask for a delivery in Avid or Apple format with the video clips in any professional format you need.
