GLOOKAST manages and streamlines ingest and post-production workflow at Brazil’s largest production facility.
Davie (FL-USA) and Porto (Portugal) June 19, 2015 - GLOOKAST, an innovator in MXF workflow solutions, has announced that Globo, one of the world’s largest commercial TV networks, has selected GLOOKAST’s Ingester-HR, Remote Ingest Controller (RIC) and ScriptChecker systems to manage and streamline the ingest of media into its post-production systems at its Rio de Janeiro state-of-art production facility (Projac).
The deployment of multiple Ingester-HR, RIC, and ScriptChecker systems allowed Globo to implement a fully “tapeless”, multi-res, file-based post-production workflow for both studio and field production.
Content shot in Sony’s SStP-440 format at Projac studios and back lots is processed by Ingester-HR and RIC to insert key metadata information and to create two other lower bit rate resolutions for editing and browsing. The editing resolution is ingested by GLOOKAST’s Ingester-HR directly into one of the multiple Avid ISIS®/Interplay® systems at Projac, while the browsing resolution is moved into Gloobox ScriptChecker for production continuity validation and for additional metadata insertion into Avid Interplay. Hi-Res SStP content is safely transferred by Ingester-HR to a nearline NAS system for further conformity using the AVID post-production infrastructure. GLOOKAST’s Ingester-HR is also being used to streamline ingest of content acquired during external field productions. A similar workflow to the one used in the studio is also utilized in the field production framework.
“We produce a large amount of content each year at Projac. Quality, however, cannot be sacrificed. We strive to use the highest quality recording technologies available,” explained Paulo Rabello, Director of Technology - Entertainment at Globo. “We needed an ingest solution that would allow us to maintain our quality standards yet provide an efficient means to deliver that content to our post-production system. The ingest system needed to tightly integrate to our post-production workflow so that valuable metadata acquired during the production process would not be lost. There was no off-the-shelf solution that met our requirements. GLOOKAST was able to understand our workflow needs and deliver a solution that met our requirements.”
GLOOKAST - Established in 2009, GLOOKAST is redefining MXF-based broadcast and drama production workflows. Gloobox and Glooport family of products were developed from ground up with key capabilities to address news, sports, archive, disaster recovery, and post-production workflows. With a set of modular and highly customizable tools, GLOOKAST makes implementation of true multi-format, multi-resolution workflows a reality. GLOOKAST products are widely used by broadcasters, content producers, universities, and post-production facilities in the USA, Latin America and Europe. For more information: www.glookast.com.
