Viz One 5.10

This release introduces new methods for searching for and labelling assets with thesaurus tags, more alternatives when transferring media and the option to work with growing files in Studio, Viz One's web app.

Major New Features and Changes

  • Using growing files in the Studio web interface
  • Saving meta-graphics from Avid with clean video
  • Access to more functions in the Viz One API
  • Changing transfer priorities and single click retry
  • Additional thesaurus labels and related terms

Using growing files in the Studio web interface

Studio's video player and editor now supports working with growing files.

Summary of Benefits:

  • This allows users to preview and rough cut material as media ingests.

Saving meta-graphics from Avid with clean video

Meta-graphics offers a new way of adding and storing graphics up to playout. Rather than burning graphics into video and rendering a final version of the clip within the graphics plugin, this feature lets editors save the graphics metadata alongside clean newly-edited video, saving both to Viz One.

Summary of Benefits:

  • Journalists can make changes to graphics right up until moments before air
  • The clean video and graphics elements can now be quickly composited and rendered as finished clips with graphics to be played out to air by Viz Trio or Viz Pilot or sent to online with Coder.

Access to more functions in the Viz One API

The Viz One Third Party API has been extended with a number of features, including:

  • Super users can now masquerade as other users via the API and perform actions on behalf of another user.

  • Search facets are now available via the API

  • The multi-level search API that allows searching across different levels in our data model now also shows related assets on other levels in the search results.

See the 5.10 Release Notes for more information about these and other additional functions added to the Viz One API.

Changing transfer priorities and single click retry

Transfer priority can now be changed directly in Studio.

Summary of Benefits:

  • Media managers and administrators can manually fine-tune transfer priorities in the transfer queue

  • Giving administrators and users an easy way to retry enables a faster turnaround (e.g. clip failure to TX), a simple way to determine one-off failures vs. consistent problems and does not require following potentially complicated steps.

Additional thesaurus labels and related terms

Selecting between broader, narrower or related terms is now possible in the thesaurus labels section.

Summary of Benefits:

  • The thesaurus labels can be independently searched for using the thesaurus advanced option.

Other New Features

  • Apple ProRes p24.00 and p18
  • More asset relationships types
  • Oracle DIVAnet
  • IBM DB2 10.5
