MEDIA & METADATA WORKFLOW SOFTWARE
Save time & money with integrated file based workflows
MEDWAY is a sophisticated software toolkit which integrates broadcast platforms by providing transfer and format conversion workflows for media and metadata.
Designed specifically to meet the demands of the most challenging of broadcast environments, Medway is suitable for Production, Post Production, Newsrooms and Playout suites.
In large scale installations Medway acts as the central hub, providing multiple, simultaneous, and high-volume media and metadata integration services across best-of-breed systems from multiple vendors.
Complex digital workflows are hampered by expensive and repetitive operations brought on by file incompatibilities.
Medway, the company’s flagship product, uses an intuitive drag and drop interface which allows for the exchange of media between a wide range of 'Best of Breed' broadcast systems in a transparent and user friendly way.
Medway can be described as an "interoperability engine" that enables a complete digital workflow, ensuring products such as Edit Platforms, either standalone or using Shared storage and third-party Video Servers can work seamlessly together.
However, Medway offers much more power and flexibility and can be connected to Media Asset Management systems. It can source reference edits from Browse Systems, integrate with Archive Management systems and can supply file registration to, or be directly controlled by, Automation Systems. All of these features can be customised to suit the requirements for specific workflow or business solutions.

Eliminate file incompatibility issues
Ensure that metadata is created and utilised at every stage of the creative production process
Medway transfers both Media and Metadata enabling the whole production process to be maintained in a digital environment. Media is re-wrapped and streamed during transfer wherever possible to ensure minimal production delay. The need to produce interim files, or go out to tape, is totally removed minimising operational errors and significantly improving output quality.
Medway transfers both media and metadata enabling the whole production process to be maintained in a digital environment.
Medway has been designed with extensive metadata capture, editing and handling capabilities, covering basic, advanced or customised implementations, to ensure that metadata is created and utilised at every stage of the creative production process.
