The FileCatalyst and Kyno Integration incorporates a plugin that adds the ability to define elaborate acceptance rules for folders being monitored by FileCatalyst HotFolder. Built on top of the same technology as the award-winning media management app Kyno, the plugin makes powerful metadata extraction readily available to FileCatalyst based workflows through the HotFolder.
Operators can use criteria like video or audio codec, frame rate, scan type (interlaced/progressive), bitrate, resolution, duration, number of audio tracks and technical metadata to define filter rules. These rules can be constructed using a simple-to-use but powerful query language that includes range queries and boolean logic.
The FileCatalyst Kyno plugin understands all the descriptive metadata of Kyno. That means filter rules can combine technical metadata as described above with metadata added in during the review or ingest process. This metadata may include ratings, tags, descriptions and more. This combination allows your organization to implement elaborate ingest and transfer workflows in a very pragmatic and cost-effective way by combining the strengths of those two industry-leading products.
