Interact with Maestro | News from anywhere—just added
With MediaCentral | Maestro News, a new MediaCentral app, you can access the full Maestro | News (formerly Maestro) graphics production workflow from anywhere, using any Internet-connected computer or mobile device. Add graphics and quickly position and preview them over a sequence. Drag and drop images and clips into Maestro | News templates from any connected storage device, MediaCentral | Asset Management, or Interplay | MAM to add to your rundown. And because graphic elements can be automatically re-created, you can increase the value of archived material, without any effort.
Discover the story-centric workflow
Add MAM capabilities—just added
With the new MediaCentral | Graphics Management workflow module, you can browse, search for, and transfer clips and images directly from within the software interface. This powerful and easy-to-use graphics asset management solution delivers seamless workflow integration across your graphics production environment, providing teams with greater access, efficiency, and collaboration.
Gain fast turnaround workflows—just added
Maestro | News enables you to play back non-flattened sequences, eliminating the need to flatten projects to a single file and transcode media—before or after editing—to a single codec, so you can get edited video to air faster. A critical requirement for live news and studio productions. You can also play out media directly from Avid NEXIS instead of transferring it to your playout device, eliminating the time wasted and need to render projects.
Gain new workflows with RenderServer—just added
RenderServer can now render graphic elements as clips in several formats, opening up many new workflow possibilities. Make graphics content available for publishing to social media. Make rendered content available to third-party editing systems without requiring native graphics integration. Store rendered graphics in MediaCentral | Asset Management and MediaCentral | Production Management as video material. And enable designers to create rendered versions of graphics for approval or preview.
Find relevant content faster—just added
Maestro | News now offers access rights management, metadata per asset type, and search capabilities natively, enabling you to find the content you need faster and more easily. In addition, Maestro | News can also connect to multiple MediaCentral | Asset Management, MediaCentral | Production Management, Interplay | MAM, and/or Interplay | Production systems, so you can search for and retrieve media from multiple sources. No matter where they’re stored. You can also retrieve MediaCentral | Newsroom Management and iNEWS rundowns without using MOS, making your workflow simpler and more efficient.
Play stored content on air—just added
No need to transfer content to your playout device. You can simply connect Maestro | News components to MediaCentral | Production Management and/or Interplay | Production, enabling you to browse and search media that can be played on air (via the Maestro Media Engine) directly from Avid NEXIS or Avid ISIS storage, minimizing the time to air of edited media. This new extension makes Maestro | News a sophisticated controller for video and graphics in your production workflow.
Get extended user management—just added
With the widespread use of graphics in today’s complex production environments, you need to be able to know and control who has access to what to maintain security and prevent accidents, such as bringing the wrong content to air. Maestro | News makes things easier, enabling you to connect its user rights management to your MediaCentral user management system or to Windows Active Directory, so you can manage all users on a single system.
Transition to UHD and video over IP
Modernize your entire broadcast graphics production with support for ultra-high-definition media. And with upcoming support for video and graphics over IP, you can use your existing Ethernet infrastructure to ingest, insert, monitor, and play out content easily—without the costly infrastructure upgrades.
