Media Room is the premier content management platform for
production, distribution and entertainment and gives you room
to move, room to create and room to manage.
Media Room (MR) was developed by Silver Trak Digital to not only meet the demands of content aggregation, usage and delivery, but also positioned to take advantage of the economies of scale. MR provides a very affordable alternative to content producing businesses faced with the “buy or build” decision for a secure, feature driven content management system.
Having proved its worth since 2012 as a user friendly, robust and stable platform for content storage and delivery Media Room is proud to have re-invented itself in its third iteration. Media Room Three (MR3) provides true satisfaction by not only capturing the creative content, but by providing high end technical capability to find, review, display and present content in the most desirable form to reach audiences on any device, in any place, at any time.
MR3 combines traditional value features such as user upload, proxy creation, transcode on demand and Aspera expedited delivery with cutting edge new technology attributes like project organisation, enhanced search capabilities including project collateral links, fully customized tagging, Aspera on Cloud, clipping and collaboration and more, providing a completely rethought and enhanced content management service.
Along with many other features listed below the “road map” for MR3 continues the journey with exploration and design utilizing Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence offering core competencies such as facial/logo recognition and voice to text, making the content management experience far more intuitive than ever before.
Since 2012 Media Room has been providing the most innovative Media Asset Management system in Australia. Via a no drama, user friendly portal, clients can upload, secure, search, display, manage and deliver media content from within their content dedicated Rooms to anyone, anywhere in Australia or around the world.
In 2020 Media Room has been re-released as Media Room 3 with even more tech capability, security and innovative feature sets.
MR3 brings forth the reliability and usability of the original and combines a completely new, project based managed profile; capturing more content and collateral, providing more cross location and search capabilities and fusing greater features and benefits into this highly regarded SaaS product.
Features to Meet the Needs
The Silver Trak technical team have been guided by both technical innovation and by valuable client feedback and re-designed the Platform to provide the best technical capability and the most sought after features in the new MR3 release. And though released, the work doesn’t stop there but rather has a seemingly infinite number of proposed features on the drawing board all geared to provide content producers more facilities from which the content will continue to add value over and over again.
In addition to the current features that have been providing clients with managed value – MR3 enables the following features to fulfil even more demand:
- Playback SMPTE t/code accurate
- Aspera on Cloud
- Timeline thumbnail preview
- Caption detection and extraction
- Audio track selection
- Sub clip creation and export
- Tiered Cloud Storage – AWS S3 & Glacier
- DRM Environment
- Live Ingest
- Content Sales Portal
- Custom Workflows
- Catalogue Portal
- Markers and annotations track per permitted user
- Canvas overlay
- Marker and annotation summary report
- Project based File Organisation
- User configurable ML Metadata extraction
- User configurable custom metadata fields
- Watermarking on Demand
The future road map is incredibly exciting; with projects currently underway for more Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities combining with technical advances like multi-camera live ingest and multi format transcode at point of capture. Silver Trak Digital has started the journey, but we need you along with us to experience the success.
