The solutions will be demonstrated in Magna Systems and Engineering's stand at the event, which will be held from 18 - 21 July in the International Convention centre located in Sydney, Australia.

In addition to tackling IMF and augmented storage, the company will highlight its ability to provide full operation in the cloud, and showcase its capability to monitor statistics and reporting via real- time dashboards.

IMF end-to-end workflow for real world IMF applications
IMF solution is a real-world end-to-end workflow that applies SMPTE IMF standards to provide a reliable, cost saving SaaS and proven cloud solution. The architecture supports UHD and HDR, provides adopters with enhanced multi-versioning support, and can address late delivered components for previous watermarked versions.

Company's executives will demonstrate how to apply IMF strategies to real world distribution problems, and discuss how IMF saves money, provides efficiency and supports new technologies in its role as a true 'Media Factory'; a system that automates management of thousands of deliverable formats via a single workflow and a single operator's screen.

Augmented Storage
AST, a concept in storage virtualization systems, brings content owners a safe, reliable and cost-efficient storage system for cloud workflows and hybrid scenarios as it virtualizes file locations. It can transparently manage the same content in multiple locations for customers managing a multi-site, distributed operation by automating task assignment and data transfer across multiple sites as needed.

This heterogeneous storage ecosystem handles any type of multimedia content regardless of its physical location and facilitates media operations, such as editing based on time code or efficient management of large UHD or low/lossless compression files across multiple sites and around the globe.

The platform is built around a resilient and scalable 'Cloud First' design, allowing facilities to grow according to their needs, dynamically adapting to workload peaks. And with AST, security is a priority, with content protected by requiring authentication. Different groups are assigned different access levels, and retention policies can be defined to protect the content and limit the access.

AST nodes provide local operation for the content stored in that site, allowing cloud independency and enabling content searching, retrieval and archival if needed, with automatic synchronization.

Treating content as an object that includes a minimum metadata packet allows storage to operate independent of MAM solutions, able to archive and publish content and easily integrate with third-party systems maximizing simplicity and efficiency.

Full operation in cloud
The cloud is another focus for the company. The firm has been providing native support for cloud and cloud hybrid operations for over six years with multiple installations around the globe.

As a result of the continuous improvements in its solutions, company's operation in the cloud features multi-resolution MPEG-DASH to enable full Web GUI without media browsing issues, Adobe Premier Pro CC, and After Effects CC integration. Content is cached locally, enabling minimal transfers of local high-resolution operations such as content repurposing, corrections, etc., making content available transparently for the end-users, regardless of location.

Executives are on-hand to explain how the firm's system architecture has been tailored for the cloud with a flexible infrastructure and native S3 support.

Real-time dashboards: Statistics and reporting
The company is also demonstrating media and content management solutions designed to maximize business efficiency and profitability. The firm's real-time monitoring of key performance indicators and reporting tools measure business efficiency and capacity, allowing users to track business processes and help customers reach their goals.
