Capella to Showcase Updates to Cambria FTC 3.5 and Cambria Live 3.5 at IBC 2017

Sep. 07 2017

San Jose, CA (September 7, 2017) – Capella Systems will release a final version of Cambria FTC 3.5 and a beta of Cambria Live 3.5 at Amsterdam’s RAI Centre during IBC 2017. Capella Systems will offer demonstrations of new features and enhancements at booth 3.A46, September 15-19.

Cambria FTC 3.5 includes a new IMF (Interoperable Master Format) editor, which generates a single package that bundles the audio, video, metadata and playlist files of a completed project and makes it ready for output in any standard.

“IMF simplifies content distribution because a single IMF master can be used to generate a file playable in any format worldwide. Capella is pleased to offer its customers a cost-effective way to add IMF capability to their workflow, saving them time and money immediately,” says Ikuyo Yamada, CEO of Capella Systems.

Enhanced OCR in Cambria FTC 3.5 detects and extracts text on a slate at the beginning of a clip and in end credits at a very high degree of accuracy, reducing the costs in time and potential errors that come with manual confirmation or transcription. Cambria FTC 3.5 also integrates the latest Nexguard forensic watermarking solutions. “Adding Nexguard forensic watermarking enables us to offer our customers best-in-class content protection while transcoding,” says Yamada.

The Cambria Live 3.5 beta includes improved ad insertion capabilities, including flexibility in specifying ad lengths and a new tool that allows the user to send cues from any workstation on a network connected to a Cambria Live seat. Cambria Live 3.5 supports Brightcove server-side ad insertion (SSAI), allowing users to stream directly to SSAI and make ad cue requests. It also supports MPEG-DASH export and ad-insertion for YouTube Live.

An upgraded Cambria Live Controller plug-in integrates with existing playout and ad scheduling systems allowing the user to create customized programming for Internet delivery. Combine the Controller with Cambria Broadcast Manager to fully automate scheduling and delivery of your programming.

“Today’s mobile viewers are looking for a TV-like experience on their phones and tablets, while broadcasters are looking for ways to distribute content to these devices more efficiently. Cambria Broadcast Manager offers a perfect solution for delivering high-quality content to them,” says Yamada.

All Cambria products now support activation-based software licensing for use in cloud environments. A new Capella License Portal allows you to monitor which licenses are in use and enable and disable workstations on the fly to prevent unnecessary work stoppages.
