PRISMAHUB uses the industry standard SMPTE DMS-01 metadata scheme that contains more then 300 metadata fields. For the convenience of the users it is possible to make favorite lists of a selection of the scheme. Metadata can also be attached to the timeline by creating timespans and add metadata to them. Using search profiles it is possible to create dynamic feeds with content, based on metadata values. Feeding a niche channel with a dynamic targeted content feed is one of the applications of this feature.

Search Profile
Using metadata fields as search criteria, you can create a search profile. This profiles is dynamic and can output to a feed. So every time there’s something new in the system that matches the search criteria, it will be addd to the feed. That feed can be send to a website, a television channel or to any other media channel. By using metadata values like “target audience” it s possible to create automatically niche channels.

Transcode profile

You can set as many profiles that you want, give them friendly names so your non-technical staff also knows when to use it and add the profile to a distribution path. The PRISMAHUB library contains all the professional broadcast formats that you’ll need, including MXF.
