Connect CatDV to a new or existing transcoding solution for increased speed and scale. NSA has pre-built connectors for:

Telestream Vantage

Create video proxy or professional broadcast master files using the power and flexibility of Telestream’s Vantage. Move beyond drop folders and add intelligence to your workflow by letting CatDV Pro & Worker Node submit transcoding jobs directly from the user interface. Why move files to watch folder or use complex XML formats to initiate a workflow? Deliver an asset and specify workflows via a web services API so that assets stay in place on your storage. This connector allows job submission, status updates and error tracking all without leaving CatDV Pro.

Content Agent 

Our connector allows users to send assets to Content Agent for processing from the CatDV interface. User may select from pre-defined Content Agent workflows right in CatDV Pro, as well as map metadata to be sent from CatDV along with the job. This allows the processing of complex actions in Content Agent far beyond simple transcodes.Additionally NSA monitors the Content Agent job queue and reports completion status for each asset back to the CatDV Server so that users may have updated status and logs from Content Agent every 15 seconds. Don’t just fire an automation and hope it happens, track progress right in CatDV.
