IN2IT exchange reinvents transfers from Avid® Interplay | Production.

IN2IT exchange manages all the technical publishing tasks from Avid ® Interplay PAM. Media ready for publication is automatically detected and effectively processed to playout servers, archiving systems, VOD transcoding farms or external storage. Depending on the use case, IN2IT exchange can rewrap MXF OpAtom files directly from ISIS storage, or trigger Avid Interplay Transfer Engine or Avid Interplay Transcode to get a flattened file to export.

With Avid ® Interplay | Transcode fully integrated to IN2IT exchange, the transfer of complex sequences is now optimised. When transcoding is not required, IN2IT exchange handles the entire process.

IN2IT exchange helps preserve metadata across environments by adding it to the transferred media. This extraction allows the preservation of as much information as possible about the original sequence: name, identifier, original project, Avid MOBID ...

IN2IT exchange is an open solution including web services allowing workflow engine, MAM or any external intelligence to trigger and control the transfer tasks.
This allows easy integration of IN2IT exchange as an additional component in a global architecture managing complex workflows.

IN2IT exchange performs the following tasks:

  • Clips and sequences detection, based on a watchfolder in the Interplay|Production folder tree. Several folders can be watched. Each watchfolder can be assigned to a Woody profile, then several targets can be configured.
  • In further versions, filters will be available to refine detected assets selection before processing.
  • Rewrap of MXF OpAtom media files linked to detected assets. They are read directly from ISIS storage and written in MXF Op1a on shared storage over the network. Different storage locations can be configured, using different IN2IT exchange profiles.
  • In the case of complex sequences, IN2IT exchange controls an Avid Interplay | Transcode through Avid Media Services to generate a flat masterclip (Mixdown mode) before rewrapping it.
  • Alternatively, IN2IT exchange can trigger an Avid Interplay | Transfer engine to produce the MXF OP1a flattened file.
  • Metadata extract relative to the source asset in Avid Interplay, and XML file generation on the shared storage. An XSL transformation can be chosen in the IN2IT exchange configuration in order to reformat the metadata. The metadata file can be delivered in the same or different folder location than the media.
  • In further versions, FTP delivery will be available for all extracted files.

All the configuration is done through the IN2IT exchange HTML 5 user interface.
