Sydney, 1 March 2012 – Distributed advertising and media asset management company Dubsat, an Omnilab Media company, today announced the launch of MediaPro Extreme, the second generation of their much-heralded MediaPro Mac and PC desktop application that revolutionised the file transferring, management and delivery of TV, radio, outdoor and online advertising.
Grant Schuetrumpf, CEO of Dubsat explained, “There are four significant new improvements with MediaPro Extreme including a completely new streamlined interface; a job workflow feature; an incorporated booking wizard and ultra-high speed file transfers. With these improvements, users can now use Media Pro Extreme to manage the entire delivery process of their broadcast advertising.
One of MediaPro Extreme’s unique features is that Dubsat users can immediately preview uploaded content to self-check video, audio, and clapper as required for TVC deliveries, all from their desktop.”
Adam Larter, CTO of Dubsat added, “Powered by Aspera’s fasp™ next generation file transfer technology you can now send your content at much faster rates than ever before. MediaPro Extreme does away with FTP and tapes by allowing you to simply drag and drop files from your desktop onto MediaPro Extreme to begin high-speed file transfers. Users can even transfer files in the background, prioritise the order and pause or resume file transfers in progress.”
Aspera’s fasp™ transport technology is fast becoming the industry standard for the high-speed movement of large files or large collections of files over wide area networks (WANs).
MediaPro Extreme is integrated with Dubsat’s online web portal MyDubsat, providing a synchronised connection to online live booking, closed-captioning services, a delivery cost estimation tool, asset archiving, real-time repurposing services, tracking and delivery notifications.
MediaPro Extreme also enables the user to choose a contribution file format that best suits their production requirements, including ProRes, MPG2 and MPG4. MediaPro Extreme also provides the ability to aggregate video and audio streams and clappers, with full support of multiplexed files for video and audio content.
Grant Schuetrumpf concluded, “MediaPro Extreme is free to download for any registered Dubsat user and gives maximum control and quality while saving time and money through added convenience and greater efficiencies.”
