Datos Media Technologies has always confided in a high integration quality. Thus, the continuous search for suppliers, who meet the integration requirements of our customers, has been crucial.
Right from when Datos Media was started, Avid has been part of our catalogue of suppliers and has played a leading role in important and innovative technological projects. Just as with all the other brands, Datos Media has always tried to develop an integration with all the benefits which the product offers, giving the user the unique experience that the brand wants to transmit.
This year, Datos Media Technologies was awarded the Avid Technologies Best Partner Award in EMEA. A recognition of the effort which the team in Datos Media always make to give end-users an integration solution with the quality and security that distinguishes Avid. An award which has also been possible thanks to the trust of our clients, who have confided in Datos Media as the integrator of their technological solutions.
“Datos Media was awarded with Avid Best Partner in EMEA Video last Avid Connect in Las Vegas. This implies an outstanding achievement considering the short life of this partner, but it´s clearly well deserved due to their great reputation and the trust gained in the most relevant customers in the Industry. We hope to keep winning mutual business together in the coming years and to explore new ways of collaboration to increase success.” (Gonzalo del Val, EMEA Sales Manager at Avid Technologies).

The requirements of the audiovisual market change at the same rate as the technological developments. The multiformat, in content as well as in support, is one of those audio-visual requirements. This is the reason why it is crucial to have the most efficient tools available to carry out the operations with quality, safety and in an smooth and immediate way.
Our client Movistar + is one of the biggest broadcasters in Spain. They offer services such as distribution, platform and creation of audiovisual contents. One of the challenges they have is the increase of professional formats which constantly appear in the market and to which they need to adapt. A need for adaptation which is not only based on a compatibility in reproduction but also in transcoding and transforming other standardized formats to be able to use these in collaborative systems such as Avid ISIS or Nexis. For this integration project, Datos Media has chosen our supplier MOG Technologies.
“Movistar + is one of our big customers who has placed their trust in Datos Media to offer them an integration solution adapted to their needs. To do so we considered convenient to count on the products from MOG Technologies because of their versatility and easy integration with other environments, even through API, which was required for this project. MOG has proven to be a Company which knows how to adapt their products to the new market requirements, new file formats and workflows, an example of this is the adaptation of the system to accept the new types of camcorders and recorders, broadcast as well as professional " (David Martinez, COO of Datos Media Technologies)
MOG Technologies has more than ten years of experience improving workflow performances within environments based on exchange of audio-visual files, ensuring high interoperability between formats and systems.
To satisfy this requirement from Movistar +, within their archive system, it was decided to install two MOG F1000 systems to use them as a gateway from their archive system to the Avid production environments, moving media as well as metadata between environments.
F1000 is a multiformat material ingest system which allows the transfer between camcorders, servers, editors and media managers even while maintaining the metadata source. It has tools like rewrap, trim and merge that allow the selection and pre-editing of materials from a very quick and intuitive interface, automatically or under external control through WebServices.

Datos Media Technologies has carried out a project for the renovation of graphics and titling systems in RTVE Sant Cugat, as well as the adaptation and improvement of the current workflows of the graphic design area, allowing fast centralized access to projects, templates, images, maps, among others, from the suites of the news production, video editors and different centers.
In order to achieve these goals, we turned to the integration of Avid Maestro Suite, Avid WorldMapper as well as their respective plugins and hardware. These solutions guarantee the total integration with the existing equipment in the centers, Avid iNews system, Avid Command automation and advanced edition clients.
“Once again, it has been a pleasure to work with RTVE. Their collaboration has been invaluable in this project as well as the reliability, experience and security that the AVID brand brings. It has been very satisfying to contribute to improving the flow and quality of the RTVE production.”
(Virginia López, Project Manager Datos Media Technologies)
Avid Maestro Suite is a modular solution, which allows to create, distribute or broadcast video and 2D/3D high resolution graphics. In this Project the users have been provided with the possibility to produce advanced graphics using the templates, from the positions of the news editing workstations and the advanced editing workstations, Avid Newscutter and MediaComposer, allowing a real time preview of the texts and graphics which are ready to be broadcasted.
Avid WorldMapper is a tool which allows you to create maps for location and recreation of news. It gives the user the option to enrich the media with an infographic element introducing it in the production of its information or any program.
All under the technical capability of Avid HDVG + which allows you to perform graphic renders made by the clients without consuming their local resources and also makes it possible to broadcast these elements in the best quality and with the highest security.
The compatibility between this system and the existing ones has also been taken into account. With the different plugins, it is possible to import or export different projects, clips and objects to other graphic design tools, saving time and making work easier.

Datos Media carried out an integration project of ingest, archive and content distribution system for the parliamentary sessions recordings in the Senate.
The aim of this project was to update the Senate’s capture system which was based on tape. It has been provided with a fully digital system, which gives access to the contents immediately, even while the recording is taking place. Furthermore, it allows the possibility to distribute these contents and incorporate the parliamentary cataloguing metadata, coming from the Gelabert system, in real time.
To achieve this, Datos Media has chosen as main bands Root6, Tedial, Panasas y DVS.
On one hand, Datos Media has installed two DVS Venice video servers configured to ingest 6 SD/HD video signals, as well as 2 outputs for replay. For storage as a caché system and high performance central, we counted on the capability and performance of Panasas’ Activestor 14 with 73 TB storage configuration and 1,5GB bandwidth.
It is worth mentioning the scalability properties which open up possibilities for future extensions. Content security is very important, that is why, Activestor 14 and Venice both are equipped with a Raid 6 system in their disks. For the transcode and delivery system Root 6 was chosen, which offers quality, accessibility and safety in their operations. And finally, for content management we relied on the experience of Tedial with the new Tarsys 5, which will be responsible of receiving and managing the data coming from the parliamentary cataloguing system and near-line archiving of the media in the LTO6 library. The whole system runs on a Wmware platform ensuring flexibility and effectiveness.
This way Datos Media has succeeded in this project providing integration solutions which are on the same level importance as the information generated in an institution as the Senate.

In just over a month the world’s top sporting event will start, the Olympics Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). In the four years that lapse from the previous edition, not only top athletes strive to win a medal, but also manufacturers and television organizations work tirelessly to design the best audiovisual systems and the most advanced workflows to achieve the best audiovisual experience for the audience.
One of the challenges in the search for improving quality is the file transcoding where different frame rates are involved (i.e. 25fps to 30 fps and viceversa) trying to preserve the maximum picture quality. Televisión Española (RTVE) have chosen Datos Media to provide an advanced solution with a technical level matching those at BBC or NBC News.
Datos Media have implemented a system based on ContentAgent from Root6 that provides a central core from where all the file’s workflow is being managed and automated, from ingest to delivery. The advanced frame rate conversion of ContentAgent uses the Tachyon technology from Cinnafilm and allows the replacement of workflows based on high cost, top level propietary hardware that adds unnecessary conversions to/from baseband in order to do the required frame rate conversions from 25 fps to 30 fps and viceversa.
With ContentAgent, the advanced frame rate conversions using motion compensated algorithms is being done in parallel to the transcoding processes. These frame rate conversions uses phase correlation and other motion estimation data to achieve the best possible picture quality that technology can provide today. ContentAgent brings us not only the complete monitoring of all infrastructure work and processes carried out but also gives us ability to do a manual process control due to the Virtual folders function. In addition, this configuration allows checking all the material inside Avid Interplay, keeping the metadata, and allows to start editing even while being transcoding.
All the system runs on a powerful off the shelf hardware, that makes the best use of multi-core CPU"s and Nvidia Tesla graphics cards with up to dedicated 12GB memory, to obtain a high speed transcoding and frame rate conversion processes, while It allows you to use RGB or YUV color spaces and processing with 8, 10 or 16 bit depths.
The solution that Datos Media have delivered to Televisión Española will provide huge savings in costs and will allow RTVE to stay ahead in terms of performance, versatility and quality in order to offer its audience an excellent audiovisual experience for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
