Sienna OriginOne is the central data hub for the Sienna infrastructure, and this module has two primary functions :-

OriginOne is a powerful MOS gateway between news management systems and the Sienna QuickTime media infrastructure

OriginOne provides a powerful Web Based, with the Media Asset Manager component, MediaSearch.

OriginOne maintains a mirror ‘image’ of the MOS information on the News System, and delivers the appropriate data to the various Sienna applications. OriginOne also allows PictureReady, VirtualVTR and StoryCut, to push MOS video objects into the News System so they may be incorporated into stories and running orders.

OriginOne further supports the News System by including a mechanism to map proxy links inside MOS objects, with the proxy media. OriginOne supports MOS object auto create, to allow News System clients to prepare 'dummy' objects early in the day, which will later be attached to incoming video feeds, or finished craft edits.

OriginOne uses a ‘Single Point of Configuration’ for many of the Sienna Client functions, thereby avoiding the need for complex setup procedures inside StoryCut clients. For example, OriginOne maintains a set of ‘delivery points’ which represent target media locations to be used for package delivery from StoryCut. This information is broadcast to StoryCut whenever a package is ready for delivery. The delivery points not only define the physical location to be used, but also the proxy format to be used during the post delivery proxy generation.

This mechanism allows a Systems Administrator to completely redefine the storage hierarchy and change the proxy format, for the entire Sienna infrastructure by making a single change inside OriginOne, no matter how many Sienna StoryCut clients are connected.

The OriginOne database is also the web based central asset manager in Sienna. By utilising OriginOne’s MediaSearch web browser based search system, and other Search functions in the various Sienna modules. This asset management feature can be accessed from any part of a WAN VPN, and allows a global media sharing infrastructure with proxy search and browse of your media from any other station on your private network.

OriginOne frees users from the complications of the file system, by representing all media as object packages containing the high quality video file, the proxy video file, the JPEG thumbnail and all the object metadata. Sienna Client applications serviced by OriginOne include PictureReady, StoryCut, AutomationX,& VirtualVTR, communicating via a quick, convenient and reliable TCP/IP protocol.

MEDIA SEARCH - The Web based Asset Media Asset Management component of Origin One.
OriginOne's powerful Web based Asset management interface allows cross platform users to interact with Sienna media, using a web interface on Mac or PC. A single interface gives equal access to all media, even ingesting, or archived media. Proxy media for clips can be played, logged, and annotated. Subclips can be
created and media can be dispatched to Final Cut editorial, pasted into an NRCS story, or forwarded with metadata to 3rd party systems. OriginOne frees users from the complications of the file system, by representing all media as object packages containing the high quality video file, the proxy video file, the JPEG thumbnail, and all the object metadata. This allows user to think about ‘media’, rather than files, greatly simplifying the production process, avoiding errors and encouraging creativity. OriginOne also controls the MediaServices module which does the 'heavy lifting' of media, including archive, restore, and scripted process automation.

Sienna's asset manager can also be accessed from a WAN VPN, and allows a global media sharing infrastructure, with proxy search and browse of your media from any other station on your private network. Through MOS-Redirection, Sienna allows single-click movement of MOS news stories ‘and’ their media, between MOS rundowns at facilities based in different continents, even incorporating automated video standards conversion during transfer.

No other MOS video media infrastructure comes close to this level of functionality.

Sienna Client applications serviced by OriginOne include PictureReady, StoryCut, AutomationX, MediaServices, IngestControl and VirtualVTR, communicating via a quick,
convenient and reliable TCP/IP protocol.

Technical Note : Multiple OriginOne Systems can be connected via Wide Area Networks to form a joined-up infrastructure for media globalisation within your organisation
