Safety and Reliability

The Freeway Media Archiving system is media asset management system which has been specifically designed so that all information can be reliably and safely stored in one central storage location. The actual storage used can be customised and varied as required and ranges from, typically a 1 Terrabyte Firewire 800 drive through to a high level raid-protected system. Equally, as all items are held within one central storage system, they can be reliably and simply backed up using traditional computer/IT systems.

Powerful Cataloguing

 

The Freeway Media Archiving System features a powerful cataloguing system. Store each media asset, video/audio clip or computer file along with a full description and 5 additional identification fields. Each field is individually customisable depending on application. This means that no item will ever be lost again and sharing, multipe useage and multi-purposing of valuable assets is strongly encouraged.

Convenient Search and Playback System

 

Finding and playing back items stored on the Freeway Media Archiving System could not be easier. From your own local computer simply search by keyword and then click on the relevant item for instant playback.

As a networked system, the Freeway Media Archiving System can be accessed by anyone on the network with the appropriate software licence on their own computer. Typical operation is finding an item or group of items using the search utility including single or multiple keyword searches. Items can then be simply 'clicked on' for viewing - the Freeway system will autormatically open the appropriate viewer for each item and instantaneously play it back on the local computer. Additionally, if required, an item could be opened in the actual creating program eg. if the user wants to find a previous PowerPoint presentation and then open in automatically within Microsoft PowerPoint for editing.

Video Clip Playback with Chapters

Often when video clips are required for playback, the actual portion required is somewhere within the clip, not at the start of the clip. In such cases, it is good to know that Freeway features a Chapter creation function which allows users to set and individually name each chapter within a video clip. During playback of a video clip, simply selecting the name of the required chapter will instantly move the video clip to the appropriate location.

Video Clip Editing, Format Conversion and Still Frame Generation

 

The increasing use of media footage and tools means that video and audio footage already stored on the Freeway Media Archiving System is sometimes required but not in the form in which it was originally stored. Instead, it may be required for another purpose, for example, inclusion in a PowerPoint presentation or for emailing to a colleague or client. Alternatively a shorter video clip than that originally stored is required.

In such circumstances, the toolset that exists within the Freeway Media Archiving System is often found to invaluable. Firstly a simple-to-use video editing system exists which allows users to simply create sub-clips from already existing clips. Secondly, a format converstion system exists which allows users to convert files stored in one video format into a different format. Finally a still image generation system exists which allows users to create full-frame still pictures from standard video clips. Not only does the Freeway Media Archiving System come with this valuable toolset but all these tools have been specifically designed to be operated by non-technical staff, indeed over 90% of of installed systems in use today are operated by non-technical people.
