ioGates can manage Automated workflows. I will here write about a client workflow to handle distribution of highlight clips form 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 the stations, is selecting the highlights clips and as soon as the match is finish they upload the clip. Part of the clip name have been pre-programed in their ioGates account, so any file that is upload with the filename IO_DDMMYY_XXX_XXX will be pickup by the associated workflow. 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 FTP, YouTube account, JW account and sent out mail notifications. This is a big money and time saver for our client not to have any persons doing this workflow manually.
