ContentAgent gets Cerify support

The first of many press releases hit the news stand today for ContentAgent the product I work on. For many years I've worked with Tektronix waveform monitors as a broadcast engineer so it with great joy that we've been working with Tom from Tek to get the Cerify API into ContentAgent.

Root6 Technology has updated the software on its ContentAgent repurposing and transcoding platform so that it works directly with Tektronix’s Cerify

Version 2.5 of the software will enable ContentAgent to be fully integrated with Cerify, an automated, file-based quality control system for verifying file-based content prior to transmission or digital delivery.

‘The integration of Cerify will deliver significant customer benefits,’ said Kevin King, ContentAgent product manager. ‘As the industry migrates to file-based working, the validation of content at every stage of the post and broadcast chain is a time-consuming and error-prone process. The ability to include Tektronix QC within a completely automated workflow improves cost effectiveness and efficiency.’

Other new ContentAgent features demonstrated at the show will include a fully automated DVD and Blu-ray disc authoring and publishing system developed in conjunction with Rimage Inc.

Root6 Technology will be on stand 7.C10 at IBC (September 10-15)
