It All Starts with Ingest
Curator Connect performs the essential role of ingesting your media into your Curator system, ensuring it is safe, secure, and available for editing.
With a simple and intuitive drag-and-drop user interface, Media Managers and other contributors can easily ingest your raw footage straight into Curator, from anywhere.
Supporting file and folder ingest of all major video formats and all leading camera cards, Curator Connect provides an efficient and safe way to ingest your raw footage, apply relevant metadata, and store it on the relevant storage device(s).
Enabling Remote Editing
Once raw footage has been ingested, Curator creates frame-accurate proxy copies at just 2% of their original file size, ready to be discovered and streamed directly into Adobe for instant editing, from anywhere!
Live Footage in Real-Time
Need to ingest and edit on live feeds, such as for sporting events? Curator enables automated ingest of all your live camera feeds and creates frame-accurate streaming proxies in near-real-time for instant remote editing!
Depending how your business operates, you might prefer a Watch Folder setup where live or pre-recorded assets can be added to folders and automatically ingested by Curator with no human interaction!
You Can't Monetize it if You Can't Find It
Without a reliable ingest workflow, media businesses tend to leave their raw assets scattered around on various hard drives, USB sticks, and other storage devices, with poor - if any - naming conventions.
Not only does that lead to difficulty in finding and monetizing the assets Editors need, but it also risks the valuable footage being lost forever.
Curator Connect requires the user to apply relevant metadata to the assets on ingest, ensuring all raw footage is easily brought into the system and easily discovered by all who need it.
