Dina and Mimir Announce Groundbreaking Video Integration with LiveU at IBC Show 2023
BERGEN, 06 September 2023 - Dina and Mimir unveil their latest integration with LiveU at the IBC 2023. This marks a significant milestone in streamlining media workflows with the collaboration set to redefine how media houses manage, edit, and publish live content.
The integration will deliver story-based workflows and is the latest addition to the automatic recording and story metadata tagging solution, LiveU Ingest. Stories created in Dina can be selected by the field operator, allowing seamless ingest and story association into a Mimir-accessible cloud storage bucket. Any content sourced from the LiveU unit into LiveU Ingest is instantly available within the Mimir interface, directly into the Dina-generated folder. Even more revolutionary is that editors can start working on the growing file in real-time via the Mimir platform or any non-linear editing system equipped with the Mimir Plugin without any bottlenecks or extra interfaces.
Steve Wind-Mozley, LiveU's CMO, remarked, "LiveU’s IP-video over bonded cellular field units have fast become the reliable way to take stories from ’ground-to-cloud’ and LiveU Ingest helps shorten workflows and adds efficiency with automatic recording and meta-tagging. Now, through our integration with Mimir and Dina, we can help customers enrich their content, automate their workflow and turn around their stories even faster, with instant access to all their live assets. Narratives can be expanded with additional feeds and edited ’on-the-fly’ to craft the most compelling pieces."
In the past, technical systems operated independently from journalistic processes. However, with this integrated workflow, journalists can view incoming video footage directly within the story. This provides immediate insight into on-the-ground developments.
Steinar Søreide, Mimir Media Tech CTO, expressed his excitement, stating, "The utilization of cloud storage has revolutionized the media industry in an unprecedented manner, now enabling seamless handling of live feeds. These feeds are ready for editing and clipping in real-time from any location, even as they grow. Partnering with renowned companies such as LiveU not only amplifies the power of these capabilities but also guarantees that our customers extract the utmost advantage from these workflows.
Dina, the newsroom system, paves the way for a digital-first publishing approach. Reporters can effortlessly create and manage content for various publishing points, including digital and broadcast, with all live assets at their fingertips, primed for instantaneous publishing.
Dina Media Tech CTO, Andreas T. Whiteley, shared the company's vision: “At Dina, our foremost objective has always been to streamline the daily tasks for our reporters, producers, and planners. Providing integrated access to live assets directly within a story exemplifies our commitment to this vision."
