Transcodes and Transfers: Exploring the MDPI Back-end Processing
Main contributor
Wheeler, Brian
The process of converting the digitized MDPI media into something that can be used for web delivery is conceptually simple:  transcode each one into derivatives and transfer them to the delivery system.  However, like most things, the devil is in the details.  Data corruption, tape latency, and managing large amounts of data are just a few of the problems which must be overcome.
This session will follow the steps that MDPI digital objects take during processing and explore the solutions used to create a system which must reliably process hundreds of hours of audio and video content daily.
