Find us at NAB 2010

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Due to the work undertaken on extending the capabilities of the Avatar-m systems, we don’t have a dedicated stand at NAB 2010 this year.

We do however have some representatives there, who you will be able to find on stand SL10508 in the Lower South Hall.

So if you’d like to discuss Avatar-m and what it could do for you, then please come along and have a chat with us.

Avatar Survey

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Our thanks to all of you that have an interest in the Avatar project and have either contacted us through this site, or visited us at one of our stands.

We have now created a short survey in the hope that we can use the information and feedback to tailor the outputs from the project to best meet the needs of users.

This survey can be found here and we would appreciate any feedback and comments you may have.

End of the Show- See you at IBC?

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

It’s been a fantastic week at NAB in Las Vegas.  Not only did we get a brilliant range of visitors to our stand, but pretty much everyone took the time to find out all about our project.  Though the show was down oin visitor numbers, those who were there, were there to do business.  We’ve come away with lot’s to catch up on in terms of development of the software and exploring the exploitation and productisation phase of the project, and there’s a real urgency behind delivering systems and services for user to put into action.

Of course, NAB was only really a warm up show for us!  It’s been our intention to show off the full finished research project at IBC for some years now, so stay tuned for updates on that show.  We’re looking into potential stand partners there, and defining what our presence should be exactly, but do stay in touch and we’ll see you in September!

P.S.  Email is now working well so if you have emailed us via the site earlier, and not had a response, do please try again.

AVATAR-m in Conference

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

If AVATAR-m and archiving in general of interest then we strongly recommend you come along to the session today in which Dr Matthew Addis is presenting our latest white paper: A Service Oriented Approach to Online Digital Audiovisual Archive.

The session is being held in Las Vegas Convention Center: S226/227, and runs from 1pm to 4.30pm.

Our white paper will be available for download later today.

Last chance to see!

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

We’re rolling into the final day of what has been a tremendously exciting and worthwhile NAB09 for us.  For the next five hours you can still come along to SU7235 and see the demonstration of our groundbreaking archive managment software, and discuss with the developers and researchers themselves how we might potentially cooperate in the future.  If you think this might be of use to you, please do come along today- we do have colleagues based in the US, but we’ll not be bringing these demonstrations over again, and unless you’ll be at IBC 09 in september, this really could be the last chance to see.

Film Launched

Friday, April 17th, 2009

We’re delighted to be able to show our new promotional film for the project here for the first time. Available to view on the Public Documents page, and hosted on Vimeo, our film introduces the business and technical challenges we’re seeking to address with the project, and technical experts from across the consortium outline the innovations they are bringing to the effort.  We’d like to thank the guys at Milo Creative for their efforts on the film and designing the web site for us too.

We’ll have DVDs of the film available on stand SU7325, and the full HD version showing too (we hope!).

New Web Site launched

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

Welcome to the brand new Avatar-M website, launched to coincide with our appearance at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, USA. In this website we hope to give you a good overview of the business needs we are addressing, and the technologies we’ve developed to meet the challenges.  There are White Papers and other guides to download, and we’ll soon have a copy of our promotional video available too.

At NAB the project will be displaying our first generation demonstration systems on stand SU7325.  In this first iteration of the demonstrator you’ll be able to see how our systems can ingest and manage large volume data storage over disparate platforms, and we hope to demonstrate integration with broadcast standard editing equipment and workflows.

If you’re interested in exploring the future of large scale A/V archival we’d be delighted to discuss how we can cooperate in the future.
