New Production Asset Management Solution from Rohde & Schwarz Simplifies Complex Project Management in Post Production

Rohde & Schwarz has started shipping its R&S SpycerPAM software extension of the R&S SpycerNode storage platform. Rohde & Schwarz says it makes workflows more efficient, especially for post production companies.

Managing access rights, proxy administration and avoiding multiple storage of assets are just a few of the challenges that complex film projects may face. The R&S SpycerPAM project asset management solution addresses these issues and significantly simplifies project handling. It offers functions such as asset management, rights management, metadata management and proxy generation as well as many features that simplify collaboration, allowing users to focus on being creative.

R&S SpycerPAM supports numerous video processing tools, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Avid Pro Tools and Avid Media Composer. R&S SpycerPAM seamlessly integrates the tools and creates its own “project mounts” for project management on R&S SpycerNode. Users can be assigned different access rights and see only assets and projects for which they have permission. Previewable proxies are generated automatically for the assets used, regardless of type — videos, complex Photoshop files, etc. Previews can be accessed with a single click. Smart mirror mechanisms prevent redundant storage of assets from various projects in R&S SpycerNode memory and sustainably reduce the storage capacity needed. In addition, rough cuts can be created quickly with the integrated web-based Preditor and then linked in the user’s preferred processing tool.

The R&S SpycerNode storage solution was originally unveiled in 2018. It represents a new and radically different approach to a wide variety of requirements for media file storage solutions. R&S SpycerNode features high availability, scalability and redundancy.
