Etere Tapeless Web Service is the more efficient and secure solution developed by Etere for allowing stations to automatically and remotely receive digital content from other Non-Etere systems (e.g. production houses, commercial agencies, non-linear editors, etc.). The XML interface of the system allows remote clients to automatically upload files and metadata related to assets present in the Etere database, smartly integrating the upload procedure with the automatic triggering of workflows, before and after the upload completion.
