MediaFiler

MediaFiler is the easiest asset acquisition software in the industry. Your traffic system or our dublist processor can be used to create a drop-down list of "to be dubbed" material. ShowTimer, PathFire and/or FlipFactory interfaces add a "need to review" list in the MediaFiler drop-down list. The operator simply selects the house-name and up to three simultaneous destinations (1 primary and 2 backup source) then MediaFiler populates all known metadata automatically. This minimizes data entry errors and can eliminate the printed "check-off sheet". Source control can be accomplished directly from the software with simple keyboard and mouse clicks or through an optional hands-on Shuttle-Jog Controller.
