Ooyala Flex is a media logistics platform that reduces the cost andcomplexity creating, managing and distributing content. Our ﬂexibleand conﬁgurable platform provides control of end-to-end asset andmetadata management, workﬂow orchestration and operationalinsights, transforming video content operations.
Automate workﬂows and manage tasks to speed up and simplify your operations. Then, integrate your existing systems and production tools to tame tedious and error-prone manual work.
Maximize the ROI of your current investments and get the information you need to optimize and streamline video production and distribution.
With complete visibility into your content processes and user activity, you’ll have the data you need to identify bottlenecks and opportunities to increase efficiency.
Connect disparate departments and regions and help them work, share and modify assets, and communicate within a single system.
With Rest APIs, scripting, and an open plugin framework, you can integrate with existing systems and production tools and quickly adapt as needed.
Ooyala Flex provides the single source of truth about your video operations. It uniﬁes data from workﬂows, assets and systems into a single comprehensive view.
Monitor your operations and optimize your workﬂows with real-time operational analytics, business activity monitoring and per-user customizable dashboards and reporting.
Ooyala Flex is conﬁgurable, scriptable and extensible. Deploy it in the cloud, on-premise or in hybrid deployments; update at a pace that suits your needs, and conﬁgure every element.
Core is an automated media logistics engine, utilized by all other Ooyala Flex modules. Core is the backbone of your media operations and supports enterprise application integration, processautomation, business-to-business communications and message
brokering, all in one place.
Scalable and highly ﬂexible, Core orchestrates all of your media and business critical processes — covering users, assets, data, storage, transcode, QC, job scheduling, messaging, access control and more. It offers a completely “composable” runtime via its web-based UI and API, so every element of the platform can be conﬁgured and scripted from ﬁrst principles to be perfectly aligned with your media logistics needs.
Once you’ve set it up, the real-time dashboards give you complete insight into your media logistics workﬂow operations while tracking all user activity and seamlessly managing 3rd party resources.
Core is event-driven and scriptable, meaning integration with your wider enterprise is a breeze. If you need deeper integration or wish to build your own applications on top of Ooyala Flex, Core offers powerful REST APIs, SDKs, scripting to adapt Flex behavior and a plugin framework, as well as a multitude of robust media and data services.
The ﬁne-grained access control, quotas and object-oriented nature of Core mean you can create multiple accounts, roles and groups to partition access to assets, resources and data.
Workﬂow helps you put your technology and staff to work in the most operationally efficient way and orchestrate I.T. resources and
people all over the world.
Extending the capabilities of Core, Workﬂow lets you compose and automate any business process, from ingest and QC to review and approval, on-premise or in the cloud.
Ooyala Flex’s advanced workﬂow engine offers a perfect blend of media processing and business process management, so you can efficiently orchestrate assets, people, data and enterprise resources in the same workﬂows. Ooyala Flex’s automatic content recognition means your workﬂows can carry out intelligent decision-making based on media type, metadata values, QC results or external look-ups.
In an increasingly data-driven and personalized TV market, the ability to model, gather and manage data at every stage of the valuechain is key to extending audience reach and increasing proﬁts.
Objects provides a more natural way of modelling and tracking your wider business data and sharing it with people, 3rd party systems and also your own work-ﬂows. With Objects, you can say goodbye to complex database integration. You don’t need a separate database of business data or an external work order management system
Objects offers a new dimension to media logistics and complements Ooyala Flex’s workﬂow capabilities. Create completely new data objects with their own data ﬁelds. Model relationships between existing objects and your own object types (productions, episodes, work orders, locations, facilities etc.) and search, update and securely share them.
Say goodbye to your monolithic media asset management solution. MAM is highly conﬁgurable and can be tailored to match your unique workﬂows and business processes. And since MAM connects directly into Core, Workﬂow and Objects, it allows you to customize your metadata deﬁnitions, deﬁne the relationships between assets and automate tasks like encoding, transcoding and QC.
With MAM, your production teams focus only on the tasks that add value and creativity to productions.
Reviewer lets you review, approve, and submit time-coded comments on selected content from anywhere, at any time,
securely and effortlessly.
Reviewer is seamlessly integrated with Ooyala Flex’s workﬂow and asset management components. This means you can create a new Reviewer session manually or from a workﬂow and invite existing Ooyala Flex users to participate, while tracking the entire process.
Panels allow editorial staff to easily add metadata to their videoﬁles directly from within the Adobe Premiere and Prelude.
Metadata can be automatically populated and new metadata can be validated on input, without risking costly input errors, or missing ﬁelds. Panels also ensures that as projects are being worked on with Adobe Premiere, they match back to the production structure within the Flex platform in the background.
Prelude users can capture, log and ingest content into Ooyala Flex without leaving the Prelude environment. Required ﬁelds are loaded from Ooyala Flex and presented inside Prelude Panels. Ooyala Flex’s metadata framework supports the concept of mandatory ﬁelds so that data can only be submitted once the minimum set of ﬁelds has been provided.
Further, as media is ingested and logged into Prelude, all technical metadata, including bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio and more, is automatically extracted, collected and catalogued into Flex.
Analytics is a real-time analytics and business activity monitoringplatform. It stores and processes event data generated from allOoyala Flex modules and also gathers data from external systems.
With Analytics you can track assets, workﬂows, tasks and user activity at every stage of your supply chain — from commissioning and production to distribution and consumption.
For the ﬁrst time you can correlate the cost of producing and managing your TV content with its performance across multiple platforms. This “feedback loop” helps you isolate bottlenecks, identify key trends and use Ooyala Flex to further optimize your production and distribution processes.
Analytics can store and process billions of data points. It allows you to search, aggregate and visualise your data in custom dashboards.
Transfer ingests content from your preferred internal and external sources using ﬁle acceleration tools, plain FTP or HTML5 upload technologies.
Users log in to Transfer’s secure HTML5 Transfer Portal and upload from any internet connected device.
Ooyala Flex also integrates seamlessly with industry-leading production technologies such as Adobe Prelude and Adobe Premiere so you can ingest straight into Ooyala Flex with all of your logged metadata.
