VSN attends NAB Show 2016 full of new releases for its VSNEXPLORER, the Media management solution comprising modules for the Media Asset Management, Production Asset Management, Business Process Management and Business Intelligence. The latest and most important news regarding this suite of software solutions are the following ones:

  • Integration with Microsoft Azure Media Services: Some of the new services provided thanks to this integration that contribute to add value for the users are the automatic subtitle creation (speech-to-text), translation in multiple languages, blurring of faces and auto-cataloguing, among others. Furthermore, the integration with Microsoft’s platform with its CDN allows VSNEXPLORER to work with Video on Demand (VoD) or Live streaming platforms without suffering any bandwidth restriction, and even incorporate MPEG-DASH support, multidevice and DRM management, AES protection and encryption, PlayReady, Widevine and fairPlay system, all of them incorporated thanks to Azure Media Player.
  • New Fingerprinting functionality: VSN has developed a relevant new fingerprinting functionality for its media management star product, VSNEXPLORER. Thanks to this latest innovation, benefitted from the recent integration between VSNEXPLORER and Microsoft Azure, content can be recognized only by its audio during the broadcasting. By doing so, the system allows to have a strict control of all the content broadcasted, as well as make sure it was on air when and how it was expected.
  • Integration with EDL’s from Avid: This new feature allows VSNEXPLORER’s media management suite to download a hotlist in a compatible format with Media Composer (an .aaf EDL file that contains all the hotlists’ cuts). This way, it is now possible to finish the hotlist’s assembly with all its effects and adjustments from Media Composer, one of the most popular non-linear editors available in the market.
  • New developments for VSNLIVECOM: VSN’s playout studio system travels to Las Vegas with new important developments that further expand its features. First, it is already possible to “Drag and Drop” event to any of the video server channels or any auxiliary channel. Second, the intelligent channel auto-assignment feature allows the system to assign a channel depending on the event that is being automatically broadcasted.

“For us, NAB Show 2016 is an event with a worldwide impact that is crucial to our strategy. Every year we present new features that revolutionize the way media is managed in the Broadcast and M&E industries”, declares Jordi Utiel, VSN’s President and CEO. “And this year we have very important developments for VSNEXPLORER that makes us feel very proud, such as its total integration with Microsoft Azure and its Media Services and with Avid’s EDLs.
