Making IT work for Broadcast
James Westland Cain, Ph.D.
Principal Software Architect
• The file is the most basic thing in computer
science – and the lifeblood of our industry.
• Files on disk are inflexible. Whatever is on disk
is what you get.
• Quantel can offer files to order – without writing
them all to a disk.
• This works with any modern OS
– Windows, OS-X, Linux –
and therefore to any modern program.
• Treating a file request as a command allows us
to be extremely flexible.
• However, we must not break the rules – the
applications do not expect the files to change
• A mutating filesystem must have some of the
properties of the Web – it must be RESTful.
Putting Work into the File
• By honouring RESTful paths we can safely
turn a file system access into a command.
• By adding sizers and codecs to our
filesystem, we can dynamically create
content to order.
• This makes us able to be the most flexible
essence container in the industry.
• SAM – offering DPX & TIFF files of any size and
colour space (LUT) to order – instantly.
• FCP – offering compressed QuickTime &
XMEML files whilst still recording.
• Internet – Offering h.264 (MOOF) & ISMC files to
MS-IIS / Smooth Streaming, to see content
anywhere on the planet within seconds.
• Files are the Lingua Franca of IT.
• Control the files, change the rules.
• By changing the rules, IT R&D spend can be
more readily used to make media production
• Instant access to live assets, with frame
accurate editing, anywhere.
