Welcome to our TV Channel Factory!
As an automation system, ChannelMaker stands side by side with other operational processes. wTVision developed a suite of media tools to support TV channels' automation workflow, such as ingest of media, traffic and storage systems, media asset management, validation tools, and much more.
wTVision Media Trimmer allows you to cut videos in segments, enabling you to extract clips from the most used video files formats. Videos can also be virtually trimmed in multiple part segments. Instead of clipping and trimming massive video files and having to re-save them to disk, wTVision Media Trimmer virtualizes this process making a multi-segment clip available to playout in mere seconds, optimizing the storage usage.
ChannelMaker integrates with wTVision Media Manager (MAM). This system adds power to your production workflow, mainly on the following processes: editing metadata, keeping track of all available videos and its location across the network and managing files transfer requests.
wTVision Media Manager receives videos from ingest stations and automatically stores technical information of the file such as duration, audio channels, codecs and file sizes, or it receives metadata introduced manually, by users, such as titles, keywords, and content description.
wTVision Media Manager allows users to search clips, stored on the central storage, directly from ChannelMaker, enabling them to sequence any media availabe on the network into its plylist directly. It will also keep thumbnails / filmstrips and low-res versions tied to the original clips.
