Why It Works
Many productions acquire and store their high-resolution footage — and often multiple copies of that footage — in locations separate from where producers and editors need to work with it. Assets can be spread across storage pools in the same building, in an OB van across town or at a facility across the globe. Pronology’s Location Intelligence helps users streamline the process of finding and delivering the right resolutions to the right people for maximum efficiency. No more wasting valuable time, bandwidth and storage space transferring redundant media or creating extraneous copies of assets that already exist. With Location Intelligence, editors can simply glance at an icon to pinpoint a media asset’s location. If the high-resolution material is not available within a current storage pool, an editor can then request a copy be delivered to his or her location. Location Intelligence always determines the best source to use for the request. If the media already exists in the proper location, it will be used in place; if it does not exist, it will automatically be transferred from the most convenient location, either as a full asset or as a partially extracted sub-clip.
