Overview

North Shore’s Transcode - Vantage middleware application allows submission and monitoring of Telestream Vantage jobs from a CatDV asset management system (CatDV Pro, Pegasus, or Web Client.) Users can view workflow progress and notifications without leaving the CatDV interface and administrators can allow users to run complicated workflows without giving them access to the Vantage server or dealing with media moves or copies to watch folders. The NSA Transcode - Vantage app deploys on a Worker Node (OS X, Win, or Linux deployment included with purchase) and then connect your Vantage workflows as you like.

Example Workflow

From CatDV, select a workflow named "create-subclip" from a menu. NSA Transcode will send a source file path and pre-selected metadata such as an IN and OUT points and destination path, to Vantage, from CatDV, to enable creation of a small subclip in a different media format. The possibilities are virtually unlimited. CatDV-Vantage will allow you to monitor and manage complex Vantage workflows with ease.
