The right agent for your content

Root6 Technology showed off version 3 of Content Agent at IBC this year. It is a very useful tool in these days of digital deliveries and client approvals. Billed as a content repurposing and management system, Content Agent lets you put any myriad of formats into the box and convert them into anything on the way out. Deep levels of automation and metadata management mean this box has the potential to become the the hub in any MCR room.

I recommended the product to Box Television and post house Splice TV a few years ago and the new v.3.0. adds some exciting features for post production companies and broadcasters alike. Integration with Tektronix Cerify and Telestream's Episode Engine provide a good QC platform and important ProRes functionality respectively. The ability to add cluster nodes for increased processing power, remote browser access to view log and initiate workflows as well as Blu-ray authoring with Rimage and their duplicators make this a very powerful box.
