In Post Production environments nowadays source footage gets delivered as files already but needs to be transcoded, re-wrapped or checked for quality prior to its use in editing. Typically a workflow system manages this processing chain. The usual last action is to hand over the footage to the Production Media Asset Management System.
This Component for Signiant's Workflow Manager performs the checkIn of video clips to Avid Interplay PAM. In addition it adds basic technical and descriptional metadata.
The component is based on our development partner Woody Technologies "Check-In" product what is a well designed and tested service for Microsoft Windows that connects to Avids Interplay PAM API. A variation that performs a re-wrap to generate the required video and audio essence files as well as the AAF metadata file is available as well.
