Messaging system with deep links to assets enables enhanced collaboration between workgroup members.

Access local or remote media

Use less storage
Tracking of all media eliminates duplication and makes regular, safe deletion of unneeded media a quick and simple task. Workflow-connected near-line and archive storage expands media reuse and lowers average cost per used TB.

The included Interplay Central toolset provides focused tools for journalists, producers, assistants, loggers, reviewers, media managers and administrators. Much more work gets done ahead of the editor with web-based tools that are usable anywhere to search, browse, do multi-camera logging, basic editing, review and approval, build complete news packages, and more while non-creative tasks are handled in the background.
