Combining Crispinâ€™s Digital Transfer Agent with Pathfireâ€™s systems eliminates the need for dubbing, timing or the segmenting of content delivered by Pathfire.
Utilizing Pathfireâ€™s Digital Media Gateway (DMG), Server Connect and Automation Connect products, Crispin provides a seamless solution to automatically move programs to a video server and prepare them for air.
The DTA reviews the DMG server for new programs on a continuous basis. Crispin issues commands via Automation Connect causing the DMG server to push the programs to Server Connect where they are transcoded and transferred to a video server. Metadata is simultaneously retrieved from the DMG and written to Crispinâ€™s AssetBase. The required programs now reside on the video server, assembled and complete with program segment timing data in Crispin automation, ready for play-to-air. DTA eliminates the need for manual segmenting of programs, as well as dubbing and schedule timing.
The stations installing the DTA include: WPSD, Paducah, KY; WCYB, Bristol, VA; WIS, Columbia, SC; KBAK, Bakersfield, CA; WFIE, Evansville, IN; WDBJ, Roanoke, VA; KGBT, Harlingen, TX; WTOL, Toledo, OH; WLOX, Biloxi, MS; KLTV, Tyler, TX; KPLC, Lake Charles, LA; WAVE, Louisville, KY; WALB, Albany, GA; KCBD, Lubbock, TX and WWAY, Wilmington, NC.
