Stockholm, Sweden, 27th August – Cantemo has announced it will demonstrate its latest update to its Media Asset Management system, Portal, at IBC 2019. The latest update launches a range of new features including an improved search interface and Final Cut Pro X Workflow Extension.
Focused on the needs of the broadcast industry, Portal’s latest version, 4.1, provides users with an improved search facility. The new interface automatically displays search filters, collections, saved searches and search history which allows users to find content quickly and intuitively. Additionally, Portal 4.1 supports free-text searches for administrators to find specific field data within asset metadata.
The Portal 4.1 update introduces a Final Cut Pro X workflow extension which allows editors to access media without leaving projects. It allows users to preview, add metadata and drag media into a timeline, creating a practical and convenient media management workflow. Portal 4.1 allows users to render subclips created by the Annotation tool as new assets from within the interface.
Additional features include an improved user interface, offering personalised notifications and health check reports, as well as granular control over users through the Portal API. User roles can now be categorised into UI and API roles, allowing system administrators to create API-only users.
“We’re constantly focusing on developing Portal’s practicality through innovative features and improved designs. Our latest update enhances the user experience through strategically designed and placed features which have enriched the media workflow. I’m really looking forward to demonstrating Portal 4.1 at IBC – it will be great to see media editors interact with our latest developments.”Parham Azimi
The new features will be showcased at Cantemo’s IBC booth (7.D67) from 13th–17th September. Cantemo’s solutions integrate with a range of other areas of the workflow. On its booth this year, Backblaze, iXSystems, and OpenDrives, will be present to demonstrate their integrated solutions.
Cantemo was established to lead the revolution for next-generation media management solutions. Its founders, with years of experience behind them, could see a trend emerging for the creation and use of video extending beyond traditional broadcast. This meant that the existing media management systems would no longer meet the demands of a rapidly evolving market.
