FAQ on Media Services

Who are PLAZAMEDIA’s media services aimed at?

At 24-hour TV broadcasters – including those offering archived content, at production companies of any size, and at business clients who produce brand-based video content and need support for their interaction with sponsors/agencies and their archiving and distribution.

How are the workflows defined?

We are happy to define and create workflows for our clients, for example around broadcasting operations, postproduction and transcoding. But equally we make our storage system available as a pure platform for clients to initiate their own workflows through media asset management (MAM) software.

What data is stored at PLAZAMEDIA?

Videos and moving images of all kinds and sizes – whether complete or as clips. We archive both our own data and data produced by clients. Our long-term archive houses, for example, all films of Constantin Film, as a central platform for distributing older material on new platforms.

How do I find my data – also for live broadcast?

MAM is an ideal search tool that displays whole sequences in the search result – depending on the indexing. These can then be integrated directly into the live edit via the defined workflow.

Who can access the data?

Parties involved in the workflow based on client wishes, for example editors or sponsors. Users can be given various accesses and use different functions of the system, depending on rights management and security levels.

How else does PLAZAMEDIA help?

What do you want to archive? What kind of indexing do you want and in how much detail? We advise at length on these and other questions. Also for content that’s available in different formats, at different locations and in different archives, we work out proposals for optimal archiving and distribution.
