Three Media is delighted to have won GOLD in the ‘automation’ category of the recent Digital Media World Awards (DMW). The award was given for its flagship product XEN:Pipeline.

The DMW Awards, now in its fifth year, has attracted a huge range of products and services. Cloud services and virtualisation, including remote production and post, IP transformation and AI/ML applications are among the strongest trends.

XEN:Pipeline gives complete visibility of media companies’ assets across the content supply chain, whether stored on a standalone drive, in near line storage or in cloud or tape archives. It extracts relevant information and enables automated workflows to process the content without disrupting operations. The automated workflows based on business rules determine when and how the content is to be distributed, managing transfers, transcoding, conform, packaging and delivery. Because it draws on and creates very rich metadata, it automates all tasks, reporting only by exception and thus reducing manpower and increasing commercial efficiency.
