Media Asset Management

Media Asset Management (MAM system) enables the implementation of the complete workflow from media collection to conversion, storage, analysis and distribution.

Workflow of Media Asset Management

'MAM system' is not just a web server, but it controls the workflow that begins with media ingest, process metadata, and manage the entire process from secure storing to distribution·utilization.

Geminisoft’s ‘MAM System’ is a product that incorporates the efforts of researches and development by the development team from start to finish, and is widely used by many domestic and overseas broadcasting stations and government offices.

Media Ingest

Geminisoft provides a system that can easily ingest various types of media.

In addition, it provides an interface to easily monitor and check the content currently being recorded with a timeline-type media ingest function.

Various ingest modules

A variety of ingest modules are available, including modules using IO boards such as commercial video servers and decklinks, file ingest modules, and automated watch folders.

Proxy creation and media conversion

In general, original archive videos won’t be played in a web browser or will cause a heavy load on the network due to capacity problems. Geminioft's transcoder automatically generates high-compressed/low-resolution proxies for the verification of original videos.

Proxy can be created in less than 10 minutes from 1 hour video

Latest AMD EPYC Processors·

Intel Gold Xeon Processor·

7 to 12x performance with NVIDIA GPU

Proxy can be created within 5 to 9 minutes from 1 hour video

Cataloging

Extraction of video key frames and creation of storyboard

Extracts the image at every point where the scene changes within the video or at each specified interval. By showing this, it helps users to easily understand the entire video.

Support for metadata input for each section

  • Scene transition points are identified and each section is created as the starting and ending points, allowing metadata input for each section

  • By entering metadata for each section, it is easier for users to find the section that contains the content they are looking for, increasing utilization

It analyzes the scene of the video to locate the point where the scene changes (Scene Change Detection), and then extracts keyframes and registers the information of the detected scene to the MAM system, provide a function to easily identify the contents of the video information.

You can automatically input metadata for the section using Vision AI connections from Google and Amazon. In this case, the cost of the cloud can be added as the amount that you use.

Search and metadata

> You can search for videos like general web searches.

> You can play the video, check and edit the metadata, if you double-click the search result.

Geminisoft was the first in Korea to use a web browser as the MAM interface in 2006.

Currently, MAM browsing with the function of MediaDirect that performs better than the web is available on editing equipment, Macintosh, and PC.

Operations of standard web browser

<MS-Windows, Apple Macintosh, Linux>

Videos can be searched for and played without any additional programs.

User defined contents can be created by type to suit the characteristics of each site, and metadata for each content type can be defined.

In addition, each metadata schema can be defined for a variety of content characteristics and immediately incorporated in the system.

Administrators can dynamically implement metadata schema
  • Define customer defined contents

  • Define metadata for each content

  • Configure metadata properties

Archive

Need for archiving

The media data stored in shared device can be available for immediate use.  But over time, the risk of missing data and physical failure of hard disk as well as the risk of data loss caused by viruses and ransomware may increase together with various additional costs.

In order to prevent this, the use of storage devices such as LTO for archiving can be an option to consider, but the disadvantage is that the initial cost is high and it is difficult to deploy.

Storage Management

Support for high-speed file storage

Support file-based storage: NAS, Storage Area Network (SAN), and iSCSI SAN.

SAN storage and iSCSI SAN need be formatted by a dedicated file system such as SNFS, BWFS, etc.

You can control user access to the storage that supports Active Directory (MS) and Open Directory

(Apple OD).

Support for Internet and cloud storage

Supports AWS S3 storage and various types of object storage. Object storage is more secure against ransomware and viruses than normal file storage.

Backup by workflow

MAM workflow help you back up your stored media data, ensuring the stored media data more secure.

The capacity of media is bigger than typical documents.

Thus, it is very important to reliably keep and back up the media data in storage.

Storage Management

Data stored on RAID does not mean that all data is secure and accessible quickly.

Geminisoft provides consulting service for best storage configuration when deploying MAMs.

Integration management with Cloud·AI·STT system

Integration with Naver·Google·Amazon AI SaaS

Rather than building AI technologies including speech recognition (STT), it may be advantageous in terms of AI analysis quality to use a cloud service that continuously adds artificial intelligence analysis data.

Geminisoft provides voice recognition and voice metadata extraction functions in conjunction with AI such as Naver·Google·Amazon.

Geminisoft provides turnkey system service from deployment, and contract to payment for AI analysis.

Speech To Text, STT

By the use of Geminisoft's STT engine, STT integration service can be provided for Naver, which excels in Korean, and Google and Amazon, which excel in English and many other languages.

Depending on the results of the STT performance evaluation, STT engine can be changed according to the administrator's settings.

AI Translate

Geminisoft uses Google Translation AI, providing automatic translation of metadata or subtitle data.

It can be used when the contents would be distributed worldwide.

Video Analysis (Vision AI)

Video analysis functions are provided by Google's Vision AI and Amazon's Rekognition, automatically generating metadata.

Geminisoft can use domestic AI service such as Naver, as well as AI analysis from big foreign tech companies.

From utilizing the latest technology to solving security problems and paying costs, total services can be provided for various issues arising from using global AI and cloud service.
