Etere Integrates Public Image Library Management for VOD and EPG

02 September 2021

Etere integrates image library management for Video on Demand (VOD) deliveries. With Etere automated workflows, you can manage thousands of images used for both online and EPG data.

Etere is committed to enhancing its ecosystem to empower broadcasters moving towards content delivery via IP, creating a system that is easy to build and operate. With countless episodes and series, it can get chaotic to organize and process your VOD media files. Etere provides an integrated and flexible management of images for your fast-moving non-linear programming and advertising needs. Clear, structured and automated, Etere makes it easy for content producers and distributors to locate, retrieve and process images for the correct VOD program and have it delivered according to schedule. Leveraging on automated workflows, Etere manages the duplication of images from the media library to public folders with on-demand access through public URLs.

Etere gives you the competitive edge.
Accessibility: Etere MAM speeds up your content delivery to multiple VOD platforms with a robust web management console that lets you drive your workflows from any smart device
Security: The file names of images managed by Etere are generated randomly. Thus, it will be impossible for the public user to access another image by guessing the file name
Optimization: Etere increases the ROI on media assets through a structured and optimized organization of your media library

From Etere Image Metadevices, broadcasters are able to set customizable workflows to copy images to a public folder which is accessible to the public through a secure HTTPS URL. Etere T-workflow makes it easy to manage even thousands of files, it can process 100,000 workflows in under than one second. Additionally, it is a fault-resilient system that enables a redundant setup.

Furthermore, the data integrity of files is protected with Etere's MD5 checksum capabilities that ensures data integrity and an error-free wrapper during and after file movements. MD5 checksum feature is one of the most commonly used signature methods to ensure that files are not corrupted or modified each time it is moved. Etere T-Workflow copies the image according to the MD5 metadata that it contains. If the MD5 does not exist, it is automatically created and copied to the public image folder using MD5 as the file name. However, to avoid duplication of data, the system would automatically overwrite any existing files with the same MD5 properties. Etere checks the schedule to match images to the correct VOD content. If there are no matches in 15 days, the image is automatically deleted via workflow.

The image library is key in every Electronic Programming Guides (EPG) system. With Etere, you can streamline the management of your image library with public URL reference. Images will be placed and deleted according to the schedule data, keeping your system updated at all times. Centralize your content and maximize your Return on Investment (ROI), with an integrated software solution. For more information, please contact us at info@etere.com.
