Video content management provider IPV announced the availability of Curator Arrival, version 3.0 of its media asset management platform. The release includes performance-based improvements designed to support remote and hybrid workflows, increase user efficiency and ROI, and strengthen security. New feature highlights:
Clip Link: An Enhanced Search Experience. IPV has significantly improved the search experience in Curator Clip Link, building on the AI-enabled search results introduced in v2.3 with search highlighting. Curator Clip Link also now features List View, which gives users the ability to organize search results in a list view and customize the metadata columns for a personalized user interface.
Curator for Adobe Panel for Remote Workflows. IPV’s integration for Adobe Premiere Pro, Curator for Adobe now has the same search highlighting functionality as Clip Link, improving the user experience and creating consistency between Curator applications. The Panel also now features a new importer allowing cloud-hosted graphics files to be imported into Premiere Pro. This ensures editors can access the most up-to-date brand graphics assets stored in the cloud directly through Curator without needing access to other file storage devices. “Swap to” and export functions, which were introduced in v2.3 with the ability to choose individual assets to swap, now includes the ability to choose which hi-res version to swap to if there are multiple renditions of the same file (4K, HD, etc.). And now, users can import subclips directly into the Panel by marking in and out points in clips to import only the section needed, rather than the entire clip.
Curator Connect Gets a Speed and Performance Boost. Curator Connect is now faster, increasing the 3x faster file copies and bulk folder import introduced in the v2.3 release. Curator Connect’s new checksum architecture reduces the strain on home Wi-Fi bandwidth as the amount of data transferred is significantly less. The new approach has helped cut down on infrastructure costs.
Curator Gateway Provides Fine-Grained User Controls for Secure Remote Operations. Introduced as a new application in the previous 2.3 release, Curator Gateway is designed to give users fine-grained control over their Curator accounts, making it a self-service setup when possible and reducing strain on IT teams and system administrators. Version 3.0 features improved security with built-in user authentication plus integrations with various authentication providers, and ease of use with single-sign-on across Curator’s end user applications. System admins can also now deactivate and reactivate user accounts – perfect for managing freelance users – and monitor user analytics for a deeper understanding of system use. Remote access is now smoother and more secure thanks to Curator Gateway.
