The Workflow Show #203 “Beyond Metadata: The Role Of Audio And Video Search”

5 May 2017

AVP President Chris Lacinak is a featured speaker in this Chesapeake Systems Podcast discussing video metadata workflows and two powerful new search applications, Nexidia and NerVve. Nexidia is a phonetic search application that can scan a library of literally thousands of hours of footage in seconds. NerVve is an application that works similarly with video imagery search. Both applications present easy-to-use interfaces, and the results typically “blow-away” first-time users.

Joined by representatives from each company, the panelists address the questions of what role these applications play in advanced video workflows and whether they threaten or complement metadata-driven media asset management systems?

AVP Webinar Series: Fixity

8 February 2017

This is the recording of an AVP webinar given on the topic of the Fixity application by Amy Rudersdorf on February 8th, 2017.

Webinar description: How do you know if your digital files are corrupt, missing, moved or renamed? We invite you to join us to learn how Fixity will allow you to monitor and report on file integrity and attendance. How does it work? Fixity scans a folder or directory, creating a manifest of the files including their file paths and their checksums, against which regular comparative analyses are performed. Fixity then emails a report to the user documenting flagged items along with the reason for a flag, such as that a file has been moved to a new location in the directory, has been edited, or has failed a checksum comparison for other reasons. When run regularly, Fixity becomes a powerful tool for monitoring digital files in almost any storage location.
