PostLinkRealtime editing platform
The PostPlatform is the new solution for realtime editing of proxy files and contains the PostLink unit and the PostHub software. If you are out in the field shooting news or other time-sensitive content, you can transfer files wireless with the PostLink unit. So there is no need to wait for the delivery of physical media. The receiving server gets a high resolution edit file from the original source, with all the original audio, video and metadata, based on the EDL. The PostLink unit in cooperation with the PostHub software automates the offline production of content, transferring real time proxy files and high res fragments based on edit lists. PostLink uses bonded wireless networks to transfer the low res files to the backend editing systems.
As soon as the PostHub receives the low res proxy files, there can be started with the post production process. When the process with the low res proxy files is finished and the first EDL files are available, the PostLink will send frame accurate the selected high res media parts from its solid state disk (SSD) and transfers them using bonded wireless and wired IP channels. This can be WiFi, 3G/4G and any other IP channel. The PostLink has by default a 1TB SSD which be swapped any time.
Integrated in Post Production Applications
The PostLink is designed to integrate with AVID systems, but is now compatible with more post production applications. The interface of the PostHub is based on the well-known XDCAM cam packaging structure and EDL file lists.
Camera mount or in a backpack
The PostLink fits on the back of an ENG camera, but can be carried in a special backpack as well.
QR Code file recognition
To fully automate the naming of the transferred files, the PostLink recognizes QR codes with content information which can be scanned by using the camera before the take starts. The PostLink starts recording as soon as the record button on the camera is pressed or on the unit itself.
