VSNEXPLORER PAM
Production Asset Management Software Module

Don’t lose track of your audiovisual contents

VSNEXPLORER PAM, VSN’s Production Asset Management software module, increases efficiency of production environments with tools that manage and track media all along the creative process. Thanks to VSN’s Production Asset Management system, workflow automation allows for movement, transcoding and media publishing tasks, among others, to be run in the background, allowing users to concentrate in what they do better: create contents.

NLE INTEGRATION

VSN’s Production Asset Management integrates with most NLEs in the market, such as Adobe Premiere, Final Cut and Avid Media Composer. It allows for the import and export of sequences from these NLEs and dragging-and-dropping them straight to the timeline. PAM supports production environments with different NLEs, a feature which makes collaborative work more efficient.

SEQUENCES AND PROJECTS MANAGEMENT

Production Asset Management (PAM) functionalities are closely tied to sequence management. When registering a sequence in VSNEXPLORER PAM, its related metadata is associated to a “sequence asset”. From this moment, the system controls all the associated media in the database, something that allows for an intelligent management of the production storage.

ONLINE STORAGE PURGING

When there’s a need to free space in the shared storage, VSNEXPLORER PAM allows the user to locate all files that are not associated with any sequence (orphan files) for their deletion or archiving. Also, when users finish working on a sequence, thanks to VSN’s Production Asset Management software it’s possible to delete all associated media at once. When doing this, the system will make sure that clips that are associated to other sequences don’t get deleted.

ARCHIVING OF FULL SEQUENCES

With VSNEXPLORER PAM it’s possible to archive a complete sequence (LTO or ODA). This is, to send the “sequence asset” and all its associated media to the archive system of choice for later recovery, freeing much needed space in the online storage. As opposed to other systems, only media that has not yet been archived will be archived, considerably reducing the writing time and avoiding unwanted duplication of media.

COLLABORATIVE WORK

A Production Asset Management system is designed to boost collaborative work. Different users can access a single sequence from different workstations, allowing to move forward in the production process without wasting time. The system also includes a Social Tools module, which enables a team to track all changes done, add comments and interact in chats and forums in real time, all of this in VSNEXPLORER’s interface.

LOW RESOLUTION WORKFLOW

The adaptive proxy (Smooth Streaming) generation module makes low resolution workflows possible and allows users to preview online, nearline and offline material. Users can, amongst other things, create hotlists, rough edit with VSNWEBCUTTER web based editor, export EDLs and consolidate in high resolution in the background.

Customer Review


We are very excited with the progress we have seen so far. The MAM has proved an invaluable addition to our infrastructure. We have been delivering promo, lineups and channel content [to our clients] over the last few months. The system is now delivering around 2000 video assets per month. We have also recently started with long form asset deliveries too. Thanks to VSN we expect that the uptake from our customer base is now set to grow exponentially over the short to medium term.
