IPV Launches Curator 2.0

Mar 22, 2018


Media technology specialist IPV, announces Curator 2.0–the new package of their asset management software that’s used by the likes of NASA, AMPAS, KSE, and Turner Broadcast. Easier to deploy and equipped with a range of enhanced features, the upgraded system will make its debut throughout the 2018 NAB Show. Curator is designed to improve overall production workflows inside any organization, from traditional broadcasters to sports teams and leagues, as well as creative agencies, educational institutions and houses of worship. The new version of the system has a faster installation process due to fewer manual configurations.

It also features added integrations with third-party technology providers like Microsoft Azure as well as Amazon Web Services. New integrations are being added all the time to provide users with much more cost-effective workflows.

One of Curator 2.0’s technical features is its intelligent automation of subtitles. Integrating with Azure Media Services, the system saves time and resources, giving users the ability to automatically generate subtitles for all their assets.

Easily rolled-out in a cloud-based, local or hybrid installation, Curator 2.0 also features Clip Link Collections which give users the ability to easily keep track of assets. Using the feature, selected media can be added to a collection, sent to a specified destination or shared with other users.

Project Versioning has also been added to Curator’s Adobe integration, improving the management and collaboration within the editing software to ensure every version of a project is automatically stored and giving producers an overview of who created a version, and when.

To give users more control over their metadata, Curator 2.0 also features a new thesaurus search feature in Curator Logger. This means that they can ensure that metadata remains accurate and that they are using the same terminology as their colleagues. Users can now quickly switch between workspaces to view metadata that matches the type of content they’re working on.
