Robust Asset Management
AssetCollector is a robust asset management component that automates the acquisition of file-based delivered broadcast content, both syndicated programming and commercials. AssetCollector monitors the content servers via their respective native LAN based API and discovers new content as it arrives on the servers. The content is only acted upon when AssetCollector expects its arrival. In addition, the software will monitor specified folder for incoming content and process it according to user-defined rules.
Florical provides the far-reaching monitoring for new content on file-based delivery servers. AssetCollector includes the transcoding of such content, the processing of associated metadata and the transfer of assets to the broadcast play-to-air servers. And while all this is being done, AssetCollector updates your automation system. Simply put, AssetCollector knows what is coming and is ready to grab it.
