Escenic Content Studio

Based on more than 11 years of development, refinement and feedback from media industry partners, Content Studio offers a highly productive, streamlined editing environment for on-line content. Based on zero-install Java technology, Content Studio can be used on both Windows and Mac.

Content Studio is a client application that communicates with the Escenic Content Engine via a robust, fault-tolerant REST API. Together with the Content Engine It provides not just editing capabilities, but a complete collaborative production environment that encompasses content creation, editing, and publishing. It has:

  • A flexible user access and permissions system that can easily be adapted to suit most corporate structures, and makes use of existing ActiveDirectory log-ins.
  • An unobtrusive field-level locking mechanism for preventing editing conflicts in busy multi-user environments.
  • A simple but effective set of workflow controls refined over many years to simplify the management of highly dynamic sites.
  • Multi-device preview functionality that lets you see what your pages will look like on a range of different devices.

The Notes plug-in makes Content Studio an even better collaboration tool by allowing users to attach notes to content items and notify other users of changes. This enables discussions about the content and progress of a content item to follow it through the editorial process and be visible to all the editorial staff involved.

Content Studio offers a complete editorial solution for modern multimedia web sites. With the Video plug-in installed, Content Studio can handle not only text and image content, but also video and sound. The Video plug-in enables tight integration with a media asset management system such as Vizrt’s Viz One, from which Content Studio users can select, edit and publish audio and video content. A built-in timeline editor enables users to crop the selected video and audio clips and add cue points, graphics, events and annotations to them. The plug-in also hides all the complexities of transcoding video and audio content for multiple devices, enabling editorial users to simply publish and forget.
