ioGates can manage Automated workflows. I will here write about a client workflow to handle the distribution of highlight clips from a football match.
The football match is between BIS and TSA (fictive names). Doing the match editors, either in the OB van or home on in the TV stations, is selecting the highlights. As soon as the match is finished, they upload the clips. Part of the clip name has been pre-programmed in their ioGates account so that the associated workflow will pick up any file uploaded with the filename IO_DDMMYY_XXX_XXX. In this case, the filename IO_21115_BIS_TSA.
- “io” is the code for the client
- 211115 is the date the clip is created
- BIS is the home field club shortcut name
- TSA is out filed club shortcut name
ioGates will then transcode the highlight clip into multiple formats according to each club`s request and delivery the clip to each club`s Face and YouTube account.
