SGT Presents Its VEDA „˘ Software Suite with New Powerful Features at NAB Show 2009

(March 30, 2009)

DMN Newswire--2009-3-30-- SGT, a leading global software vendor in the broadcast and media industry, will be present at this year's NAB show in Las Vegas (French Pavilion, Booth # N1737G, in the North Hall) and will show a series of new features of its VEDA(tm) software suite for workflow automation and video content management.  The software solution integrates SGT's unique know-how and 20 years of experience in video content management for traditional broadcasters with the need for multi-delivery models.

The main features of the VEDA(tm) suite that will be shown at NAB are:

  • VEDA(tm) Search & Retrieve

VEDA(tm) Search & Retrieve is an intelligent semantic search engine offering unrivalled research power.  While Search allows finding material based on similar expressions or even misspelled key words, Research allows discovering the intended material and story paths. Search & Retrieve supports more than 15 languages and proposes synonyms,  related subjects, people, or places – thus, enough elements to enlarge or deepen the research.

  • Final Cut Studio plug-in

This plug-in allows immediate asset access from post-production. Craft editors can search the VEDA(tm) media database and initiate a transfer of material to the post-production storage, where VEDA(tm) will take care of rewrapping or transcoding automatically.  With a simple click, transferred materials can be added to a running Final Cut Studio project.

Additionally, VEDA(tm) allows program makers to view and pre-edit selected material in low res, and then push the resulting EDL to craft edit stations, such as Avid Media Composer and Apple Final Cut Studio.

  • VEDA(tm) Automation client

The new VEDA(tm) Automation client is an easy to use, powerful and intuitive playout application.  SGT has put a particular attention on its ergonomics and the overall presentation.

This application is composed of 10 modules that can be organised to meet the user's needs and allow tailoring the workspace through a graphical tool (a configuration with a double screen is also possible).

In addition to the classical features for playlist management of, VEDA(tm) Automation offers:

  • An access to the entire media database
  • Preview functions in low and high res
  • Monitoring tools per timeline
  • Process supervision tools

All these features are based on SGT's technology platform that is known for highest reliability, upgradeability and performance. It offers new BXF interfaces and Web Services to ensure a greater integration with third-party tools installed at the client's site.  

"We are excited to present these new features to the international broadcast community at this year's NAB show," said François Chiche, Vice President Sales and Marketing of SGT. "Program makers and broadcasters will benefit from important advantages to significantly reduce their infrastructure costs."
