Digital Broadcast’s MediaFire Automated Master Control System automates an entire master control operation from ingest through playout through reconciliation with the traffic department. With automation built into the video server hardware, MediaFire controls the playout of programming and spots as well as all master control equipment, including routers, switchers, logo inserters, etc.

The MediaFire is able to encode and decode in real-time multiple file types including DV, AVC, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MOV and others.

Receiving and prepping syndicated programming has never been easier or faster. MediaFire with its direct interfaces to PitchBlue and Pathfire eliminates the time and work of preparing syndicated content for air. Syndicated programming received from PitchBlue or Pathfire is transferred to the MediaFire automatically. Once on the MediaFire, it can be played directly to air using MediaFire’s integral automation application. It’s virtually effortless – the syndicated material is already prepped and ready to air.

Content transfer is amazingly fast and MediaFire plays the content natively without the need to unwrap, transcode or rewrap the MPEG2 files, saving time and insuring the highest quality playback.

MediaFire Automation provides all the functions needed to run a seamless, trouble-free schedule. It provides automatic audio normalization. Error warnings are issued to alert of missing media, time conflicts and other issues that could interfere with the schedule. Last-minute changes and join-in-progress functions are straight-forward and easy to make.
