Share Article

Dutch broadcaster Omroep Gelderland selects AA Media Group to implement an advanced MAM system for their tri-media environment, consisting of Vidispine media backbone and Cantemo’s Portal frontend, to simplify workflows and standardize the metadata used for media archiving and exchange.

The new system reduces the number of separate databases and manual processes, which will allow our users to produce faster, reuse content from our archive and exchange content with the other broadcasters.

Omroep Gelderland, covering the largest province of the Netherlands, has selected leading solution provider AA Media Group to implement their advanced media asset management system. Objectives of the project: to interface with existing audio and video production and playout systems, including Adobe Premiere, to implement the ROOS metadata model for standardized archiving and media exchange used by Dutch media companies, and to be the foundation for future functionality, including news production and new media outlets.

“We selected AA Media Group for their unique solution and project delivery expertise. For us it is key that the solution can integrate with our current and future infrastructures. The new system reduces the number of separate databases and manual processes, which will allow our users to produce faster, reuse content from our archive, and last but not least: exchange content with the other regional broadcasters,” says Martin Ouburg, manager of facilities and technology at Omroep Gelderland.

“It is very exciting for us to work with customers like Omroep Gelderland, who share our vision of next generation tri-media production systems, and partners like Vidispine and Cantemo, who are building the products to make this vision a reality. Vidispine’s open media backbone combined with Cantemo’s Portal gives us a standards based framework and a customer specific solution, an ideal mix of standardization and flexibility,” adds Winfred van Kuijk, project manager at AA Media Group.

During the yearly IBC exhibition in Amsterdam (10-14 September 2010), AA Media Group and Cantemo will be supporting various exhibition partners, Vidispine will be present in the booth of Arbor Media, 7.G15b.
