Ingest functionality in Studio 5 includes clearly defined error messages, real time status updates, optional end user push notifications, and the ability to create, update and resubmit feeds. Visibility of ingestion status is provided for all components including video, subtitle, artwork, metadata, and for processing including transcoding.

Scheduling Automation

A fully automated, intelligent service makes the process of scheduling repeated content significantly simpler and faster. Depending on the programming strategy and the diversity of content, Studio 5 can save over 90% of the time typically spent scheduling a channel.

80% of content scheduled in linear channels is repeated in one form or another. Studio 5 offers capabilities to repeat content, which is particularly useful when applied to scheduling episodic sequence content and setting content placement with scheduling patterns.

Content Filtering

An interactive and intelligent filtering service in Studio 5 refines content selections during  programming using a combination of contextual and technical metadata to quickly find and select with incredible precision the precise content that viewers want to watch.

The ability to find content using sophisticated filtering and sorting, enables users  to quickly perform a range of key workflow activities that remove lengthy and manual processes.

Series Management

A series management function streamlines the creation of seasons and episodes. Studio 5 collates and validates all the assets and metadata associated with any series. Even artwork for EPG’s and custom metadata needed for certain distribution requirements are managed in a unified manner.

Series metadata is critical for some channel operators who work with libraries containing episodic content. Series management in Studio 5 significantly lessens the time required to create seasons and episodes.

Live Switching

A dynamic live switching capability for scheduled or unscheduled live segments such as news or sports puts Studio 5 in an active mode to switch from a live source in less than a second.

Channels that include live segments in their programming expect fast switching from live sources. Studio 5 live switching is even applicable for channels having to contend with unscheduled segments such as breaking news.
