Sienna MediaVortex provides a media globalization solution for Sienna workflows linking remote sites with a WAN acceleration asset propagation server.
Unlike traditional WAN accelerated passive file transfers systems, MediaVortex plays an active role in the workflow, and transfers complete Assets with metadata, not just anonymous files. When an asset is propagated from one Sienna site to another using MediaVortex, a complete asset appears in the remote database with the same metadata and media. The 2 assets are now 'conjoined', allowing logging and metadata changes in one side to be automatically propagated to the other side. it is also possible to send just the proxy media from one side to the other to allow remote logging and editing with Sienna ImpulsEdit. Logs and edits are pushed back to the originating site to be automatically conformed.
MediaVortex uses UDP technology to allow rapid, reliable transfer of files across connections with massive latencies and fluctuations in availability. Tightly integrated with Sienna's media asset management system MediaVortex acts like a Wide Area Network file server, allowing remote sites to selectively request any part of any file in a transactional workflow.
