VSNExplorer MAM now incorporates the 100% web-based editing tool Wedit with brand-new functionalities
VSN is bringing a more powerful version of its Media Asset Management (MAM) software, VSNExplorer MAM, to NAB Show 2018 (booth SL 8006) in Las Vegas, NV. VSNExplorer MAM now incorporates the 100% web-based editing tool Wedit with brand-new functionalities such as voiceover capability. Wedit’s features are also fully available in the cloud.
Launched in its first version at NAB Show 2017, Wedit is a tool developed in HTML5 that allows journalists and editors to edit videos and prepare them for broadcast from a single and unique interface, without having to switch to another non-linear editing system (NLE). Now, advanced editing and voiceover capabilities are included in the Wedit tool for the first time. That means users are able to record voiceover tracks straight to the timeline, while previewing the sequence proxy video with frame accuracy, removing the need to switch to another NLE and enabling users to complete their videos solely from the Wedit interface.
The user can optionally download the EDL with the recorded voiceover track to be exported to the NLE. With this latest Wedit version, it is also possible to drag and drop any existing audio asset into the timeline and show the waveform pics of each audio track to improve the user experience. As a result, users will save time when editing their final news and videos, thereby becoming more efficient and being able to meet tight deadlines.
Douglas Wynn, VSN’s sales director covering North America, said: “VSN Explorer MAM already offered all the tools necessary to manage the media of any company. It now comes turbo-charged with the Wedit tool including the new voiceover feature, with the added flexibility that is provided by cloud technology. For editors and journalists, this even more powerful solution enables them to create high-quality content and still meet even the tightest of deadlines, removing some of the stress in what is often a high-pressure environment.”
