Demos will be held at 12:30 pm; 3:30 pm, and 6:30 pm. Cocktails will be served from 5:30-7:30 pm.CET Universe will present the advantages of a digital file workflow that follows best practices for accepted tape-based workflow. Powered by CET’s Constellation, the process provides the answer for an off-line/on-line conform editing workflow for video professionals.
In the new CET digital workflow, productions can edit off-line and, using Constellation, conform to High Resolution clips automatically from second-tier hard disk storage, Optical Disc or LTO. Constellation's partial restore capability provides the High Resolution files with requested Time-In and TIme-out selects to the edit workstation or shared storage system, such as Avid Unity, ISIS and others. Constellation provides complete storage management of primary, secondary and deep archive and will even manage all off-line assets in a single facility or multiple facilities around the world. “The advent of digital file acquisition and digital file workflow has brought many advantages to the production and post-production industry, but has created a lot of confusion and issues in post-production workflow when compared to the long-accepted videotape process. Now, we can empower our customers to embrace an all-digital post-production universe that follows a reliable tape-based workflow, just without the tape,” said Tony Cahill, chief engineer of CET Universe. ““The scalability and flexibility of Constellation is unparalleled and is the cohesive glue that connects all independent systems together and enables a facility to choose how much automation and how much manual control they need to complete their work.”About Constellation VCMA flexible and scalable solution for media and entertainment, Constellation connects disparate digital workflow processes simultaneously, including:
