Manage, package, deliver content anywhere

Orchestrate your media supply chain

Transcode & deliver faster

Process a full feature title in as little as 2 minutes with our cloud-native parallel processing transcoder – the fastest in the world.

Minimize storage & increase margins

Dramatically reduce long-term storage costs by de-duplicating your video assets, so you only store the difference between file types (MB) rather than multiple large video files (hundreds of GB/TB).

Reduce errors with package & delivery templates

Conform files for delivery, transform metadata, package each required media collection and automate downstream package delivery endpoints to reduce human error and ensure consistency.

Media management, simplified

Easily locate each title through tag-oriented metadata and fast search functionality. Sort your title catalog with virtual compositions, using individual media components for video, audio, subtitles, posters and artwork. Consolidate and store all title versions as an IMF (Interoperable Master Format) package.

Improve video quality

Ateliere Connect can ingest and utilize nearly any media format, ensuring direct access to your original, high-quality masters at optimum video quality, no matter where, or how you distribute assets.

Simplify versioning & localization

Easy-to-use, flexible versioning enables users to save incremental change (e.g. compliance edits and localizations) and simplify redeliveries, so changes come with minimal cost and effort.

Automate quality control

Cloud-native, file QC catches up to 90% of common issues automatically, providing the reassurance you need during large-scale processing.

Collaborate globally

Content can be shared or requested with our Tasks interface. Members of your team can be sure they are viewing the same job status, in real time, via Ateliere Connect Dashboards.

Solutions you can trust

  “Ateliere no code, low code automation has made the onboarding process quicker. There’s an already-established set of tools that can quickly be deployed in our workflows. That then ultimately leads to quicker deployment, quicker time to market… there is a lot of trust in the solutions.”

— Jan-Hendrik Hein, VP of Media Operations A+E Networks, EMEA

Ateliere Connect features at a glance

Dashboards for every user

Connect comes with 5 built-in dashboards adapted to different profiles and workflows within the company – Executive, IMF, Media Services, Ingest and QC – giving real time visibility into the creation and status over time of Titles, Media Files, Transcodes, Packaging and Deliveries.

Users can leverage the direct links to perform immediate actions in Connect such as performing manual QC, triggering the delivery of a package, etc..

Move into the cloud confidently

Import media from anywhere, in its native format, with automatic extraction of technical metadata, captions and file QC, as required. All on Ateliere’s TPN-approved, secure AWS infrastructure.

Deep analysis & FrameDNA

Ateliere’s Deep Analysis & FrameDNA functionality leverages AI/ML to automatically detect duplicate content in your catalog, create a composition for each version with the deltas and can consolidate versions to IMF. No more storage overhead!

Title management

Build your title hierarchy and metadata fields in a no-code, point-and-click environment. Plan ahead by creating title placeholders/virtual assets for media that will arrive later.

(Media) asset management

Customizable metadata, virtual folders and tags allow you to easily sort, locate and distribute assets based on your business needs. Storage policies leverage AWS lifecycles, moving content between tiers to keep costs down.

IMF functionality

Rich native IMF and IMP support, including building both OV and versions from Deep Analysis. Create deliveries from IMF on demand to any endpoint and check status on the dashboard.

Agile packaging

Easily transform metadata from Ateliere Connect’s Core schema (based on CableLabs ADI) to any delivery format using its package templates. Build media collections by gathering tags from your video, audio, subtitles, posters and artwork & add delivery endpoints – all in a no-code environment.

Flexible packaging support

Ateliere Connect handles a wide range of packages including Flat, IMF, iTunes, Apple Avails, Amazon MMC & MEC, and more. Add QC to your delivery workflow, with Netflix Photon & Interra Baton integration.

Efficient delivery

Ateliere can provide you with over 100 of the most common OTT delivery package templates, built by us, reducing your configuration time.

Media preview

Preview playback for most media content, including CPLs from IMF packages, with frame accurate transport controls, caption/subtitle preview, audio meters and full media details.
