SL NEO based МАМ

Terms

The following terms are used in МАМ:

TermDescription
ClipVideo material with metadata in media database
ID, Media or MediaIDUnique clip identifier within one and the same media database.
Media AssetEmpty clip with metadata without video material
Shot ClipClip copy with varied metadata but linked to BRV and LRV of an original clip.
Shortcut A reference to a clip created in media database folder which is different from the current clip location (name and all metadata belonging to Shortcut of one clip are the same). Alterations of one Shortcut will cause alterations of other Shortcuts of this clip.
KeyframeA mark on a video with time code of its position, type and description (title, comment, key words)
SegmentA video fragment is usually between two key frames - Segment Start and Segment Stop - with identical titles (e.g., Seg1, Seg2, etc.)
Metadata Basic SetEvery clip has its fields regardless metadata setting scheme. They are given on tabs in File Monitor: Clip, Orig, User, HiRes, Proxy, Archive.
Extended Metadata SetOther fields of metadata added via metadata setting schema
Archive Clip BRV profile copying to archive folder. When finished, ARC profile is assigned to the clip. Tape library software manages clip transfer from archive folder to tape.
Flush (HiRes)Deletes original video material from volume. Only clips with ARC profile can be flushed.
RestoreRestores BRV files from archive to original folder.
ACPAbbreviation for Administrator Control Panel
Status CertificatesSystem assignes 16 certificates to clips in media database to indicate media material workflow in a company. Each certificate can have an arbitrary name, so you can set up schema due to technical process (e.g. allowed to proceed by QC, approved by QC, trimmed, commented, ready to air). Term ‘Status’ is used for a set up certificate with the name assigned. Status certificates can be interrelated, e.g. ‘Ready to Air’ status cannot be set prior ‘Approved by QC’ status. Permissions for setting up a certain status are given to certain user or group accounts (see Security Policies in Media Database).

Workflow Diagram

See one of implementation options of SL NEO based MAM.

MAM File Structure Organization

  • media_db (Local media data base root folder)
    • db - Folder with database structure information.
      • metadata.txt - File with clips metadata.
      • store_d.txt - File with media data base structure and basic information about media files
      • uuid.txt - File with databasa service identifier
      • watch_NAME.txt - File with structure and basic information about media files connected volume named as ‘NAME’.
    • media - Folder contains subfolders with original media files. Subfolders follow the pattern: filename-NIDx-y, where filename is a name of the file, NIDx-y is an internal media data base identifier. This folder is empty, if Volume is connected to the media data base root.
    • proxy - Folder contains subfolders with proxy-copies. Subfolders follow the pattern: filename-NIDx-y, where filename is a name of the file, NIDx-y is an internal media data base identifier.
  • hires - Local or network folder which contains original media files. The path is specified in Disk Path parameter when Volume is created.
  • archive - Local or network folder containing archive files. The path is specified in Archive Path parameter.

Text files in ‘db’ folder can have backup copies. Backup copies follow the pattern: filename_N.txt.md5, where filename is a name of the file, N is number from 1 (the latest copy) to 5 (the oldest copy).

Use network folder for 'hires' and 'archive' folders. There are several ways to connect them to MAM server:

Software Set up

See change log for up-to-date software version.

General information on SL Neo Set up.

It’s enough to activate only Storage component in order to set up MAM server.

Metadata Schema Setup

Metadata fields are setup according to customer’s demands. Fields setup at this point can extend metadata basic set for clips in media db.

Edit Metadata Schema Setup Window: ACP → Status tab → Media database name (Storage) → Metadata Schema…

To edit this option, you need to be authorized under administrator account or another account with required permissions. If ‘Enable local admin privileges’ parameter is ON, then authorization is not required (‘User’ and ‘Password’ fields are empty).

ParameterDescription
Load PresetLoads basic pattern schema defined by developers.
  • Basic - basic fields for МАМ server
  • Vod - basic fields for VOD server

Namespaces…Enables to define non-standard namespaces (if there are fields with unknown namespaces in the actual imported XMP file, they are not displayed during editing but saved, and they are displayed during export process, or if these fields are added to the schema)
  • Prefix - prefix name
  • Uri – address http://name is usually used as URI. It can be any address, e.g., the following address is used for «photoshop» URI namespace: http://ns.adobe.com/photoshop/1.0/. One can use http://skylark.tv address for «skylark» namespace, for example. It is essential to use always one and the same URI for one and the same prefixes. Otherwise, it conflicts with XMP files with different URI for the same prefix.
Edit value sets…Edits dictionary values for the fields with Array type and Value Restrictions=Dictionary parameter
Secondary event types…Edits predefined values list of Title field for key frames with Secondary event type
Status certificates…Edits status certificates and dependencies for USER_1-USER16 certificates USER_1-USER16


Asset status name is assigned to one out of 16 certificates (e.g., allowed to proceed by QC, approved by QC, trimmed, ready to air); and dependencies are set with other certificates in the system (e.g., this screenshot shows how Approved status certificate depends on Reviewed and Annotated status certificates, and it cannot be setup without them). Starting with version 2.4.58 you can choose a color for a status in a dropdown menu Color. When status is set up, clip icon will be colored accordingly.
Schema PropertiesFields in current schema. ‘Add’ means to add a new field.

It is available in version 2.4.54.

Garbage Collect Launch

Database and actual video files have become unsynchronized.
Here are some possible reasons for that:

  • Media database restoring from backup.
  • Attemp to delete opened and locked files.
  • Security permission incorrect setup in file system.

Garbage Collect was created for searching bad links and «unnecessary» files in media database (it is available in version 1.8.113).

Garbage Collect Setup Window: ACP → Status tab → Media database name (Storage) → Garbage Collect…

To edit this option, you need to be authorized under administrator account or another account with required permissions. If ‘Enable local admin privileges’ parameter is ON, then authorization is not required (‘User’ and ‘Password’ fields are empty).

OptionDescription
Remove profiles with no mediaRemoves asset profiles (LRV, BRV (not in volumes), WP1-WP8), if video files for these profiles are absent. E.g. when you restore media database from backup. This option is available in version 2.0.53.
Scan unregistered media Lost files searching in media database. When pressed, Scan location window is opened:
  • MEDIA - media database,
  • ARCHIVE - archive folder (if set up).


It reveals total number of lost files and their links. Press 'Remove Unregistered Media button' to delete these files.

Remove unregistered mediaThis option is activated when media database scanning has been completed(Scan unregistered media).

It deletes files not linked to media database anymore. When deleted successfully, you will see: Deletion completed N of N.

Media Database Built-in Protection

Starting with version 2.3.97 Media db service fails to start, when an error occurs while loading database. There is no existing files overwriting, so they can be restored.

Possible stored.exe service error reporting

Description of MAM Media Certificates function check.

WebProxy - browser access to video from МАМ

Starting with version 2.1.0 you can obtain clip proxy copy in MP4 or HLS formats in h264 codec for browsers viewing. You can generate up to 8 versions of WebProxy profiles with various presets of h264. There are multi-bitrate and encryption supports for WebProxy in HLS format. Starting with version 2.1.26 WebProxy encoding is supported with hardware multi-threaded encoder Nvidia NVENC (Pascal).

WebProxy option has been installed in version 2.0.41 first. At that time two profiles with fixed settings (WP1 and WP2) were generated. Skylark SL Neo 2.0 does not guarantee the WebProxy operation as this option has been under testing.

Objective

Originally this option was created for interaction between MAM database and Skylark VOD server mentioned in Skylark SL Neo 2.1, and WebAccess server (web access to МАМ). Further this option has been integrated with Media trafic system AdvertiZoom, allowing video clips viewing from Media database directly in AdvertiZoom interface.

How does it work?

Client knowing clip name in Media database addresses to MAM server using a certain URL address. MAM server checks web-proxy existance of the clip required. If web-proxy is found, it will be provided to client, otherwise server generates it on-the-fly.

Enabling Web-proxy

Enable the following setting for this option: Administrator Control Panel→Manage→Storages→Storage_N→Web Proxy

ParameterDiscription
Enable web proxyenables web-proxy generation for media database content
WProxy pathLocal or network path to store generated web-proxy files
WProxy client path it is used similar to Client Path in Media db settings
WProxy tread count Number of WebProxy simultaneous threads encoding. Possible number from 1 to 32.
WP Profiles Contains a list of presets created for WebProxy profiles

ParameterDiscription
Profile numberChooses profile from 1 to 8 for editing (profiles WP1-WP8) accordingly
Use Proxy as source if availableEncodes WebProxy based on a clip proxy copy. «Use proxy as source», when there are no HIRES copies, e.g. using archive on LTO tapes. In this case you need WP profile as Proxy variant but for web viewing, do it of Proxy as it is faster. For VOD this option should be OFF as profiles are to be done of HIRES-а.
Frame rateWebProxy file frame rate. Available variants: as source, 24M, 24, 25, 30M, 30, 50, 60M, 60.
WidthHorizontal frame size in pixels
HeightVertical frame size in pixels
Bitrate (kbps)Thread setting in kilobits per second. Supported values from 200kbps to 10000kbps, step of 50kbps or Auto.
GOP size (sec)Length setting between i-frames in seconds from 0,5sec to 10,0sec, step of 0,1sec.
ProfileProfile encoding setting h264
  • Default
  • Main
  • Baseline
Max B-frameNumber of B-frames in one GOP. Choose Profile = Main for this option. Value from 0 to 4.
FormatChoose container
  • MP4
  • HLS (TS)
DeinterlaceDeinterlace when coding.
EncryptEnables AES128 encryption for HLS (TS) data. To view these files, you need AES key file. A link to AES key is added automatically to playlist file, and the key itself is located in the folder with m3u8 playlists and TS files.

It is supported in version 2.2.4.
EncoderChoose encoder for h264:
  • Default - CPU,
  • NVENC - encoder Nvidia NVENC (Pascal).


Settings are available, if you choose Format = HLS (TS).

ParameterDesciption
VariantsNumber of supported variants for multibitrate mode.
  • None - one clip variant with encoding set up on General tab is provided to HLS.
  • 1 - two clip variants General + Variant 1 (set up on Multibitrate tab) is provided to HLS.
  • 2 - three clip variants General + Variant 1 + Variant 2 (set up on Multibitrate tab) is provided to HLS.
WidthHorizontal frame size in pixels
HeightVertical frame size in pixels
Bitrate (kbps)Thread setting in kilobits per second. Supported value from 200kbps to 10000kbps, step of 50kbps or Auto.
DeinterlaceDeinterlace when encoding.

Viewing

Use the link to access a video in browser: http://IP_ADDR:7901/storage/DB_NAME@TITLE/WP1, where

  • IP_ADDR - server IP address,
  • DB_NAME - media database service name,
  • TITLE - clip ID,
  • WP1 or WP2 - higher or lower quality, respectively.

E.g. url: http://127.0.0.1:7901/storage/SL_NEO_Storage_1@rec1/WP1

Note! МАМ server generates web-proxies on-the-fly, so it takes some time from the moment of accessing to URL till video plays back. It depends on clip duration, its format and quality of viewing. You can avoid it by using precoding with triggers

You may have to disable h264 hardware video acceleration in Google Chrome browser settings.

Bulk Metadata Upload using Metadata Connectors

Starting with version 2.0.60, there has been introduced interface for bulk metadata upload to MAM - Metadata Connectors. See initial connectors set-up.

Input Data

Connector works with XMP packages file divided by separator characters of any type and number (\n, \r\n, ….).

Here is the file example with one XMP package with ID and Filename fields in skylark spacenames:

<?xpacket begin="?" id="W5M0MpCehiHzreSzNTczkc9d"?>
 <x:xmpmeta xmlns:x="adobe:ns:meta/" x:xmptk="XMP Core 4.4.0-Exiv2">
   <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#">
      <rdf:Description rdf:about=""
            xmlns:skylark="http://skylark.tv">
         <skylark:id>
            <rdf:Alt>
               <rdf:li xml:lang="x-default">newid</rdf:li>
            </rdf:Alt>
         </skylark:id>
         <skylark:filename>
            <rdf:Alt>
               <rdf:li xml:lang="x-default">newfile</rdf:li>
            </rdf:Alt>
         </skylark:filename>
      </rdf:Description>
   </rdf:RDF>
 </x:xmpmeta>
<?xpacket end="w"?>

Data Sending

File with XMP packages is sent by PUT method to the following address: http://IP_ADDRESS:7901/storage/<STORAGE_NAME>?connector=<CONNECTOR_NAME>

ParameterDescription
IP_ADDRESSMAM server IP address
STORAGE_NAMEMedia database name. E.g.: «Storage_1»
CONNECTOR_NAMEMetadata connector name

Uploading Program Example

Here is the example of nodejs, which uploads metadata to media database «Storage_1» and connector «test»:

var fs = require("fs");
var request = require("request");
var sourceFile = 'demo_metadata2.xmp';
var connectorUrl = 'http://localhost:7901/storage/Storage_1?connector=test'
console.log('Skylark Metadata Loader');

fs.stat(sourceFile, function(err, stats) {
	var file = fs.createReadStream(sourceFile)
	  .pipe(request.put({url: connectorUrl, headers:{'Content-Length': stats["size"]}}, function(err, res, body){
		if(res.statusCode === 200) {
			console.log('Load success'); 
		}
		console.log('Response status: ', res.statusCode);
		console.log(body);
	  }));
});

To enable this example, set nodejs name suffixes: request and fs (command: «npm install module_name»).

Program calling from the command line interface: «nodejs script.js».

A new asset was created during uploading.

Server Response

Server responseDescription
200
If upload was successful, server returnes HTTP 200 code
500 - Invalid or no connector specified
If upload fails, server returns HTTP 500 code and a message in the body of response. Invalid connector name(parameter - CONNECTOR_NAME)

MAM Logs

Any professional multiuser solution cannot deal without internal logs and logging of users activities in the system. МАМ from Skylark provides such opportunities.

System Logs

We recommend the following during system setup to obtain objective information from MAM logs:

  • Diactivate «Enable local admin priveleges» parameter Administrator Control Panel→Manage→Storage_N→Storage Parameters
  • Deactivate media database «guest» account. Administrator Control Panel→Status→Storage→Manage Users
  • Create necessary number of user accounts for individual usage on each client workplace. Administrator Control Panel→Status→Storage→Manage Users
  • Set passwords to all media database accounts, including «Administrator» account. Administrator Control Panel→Status→Storage→Manage Users

System logs of media database service are formed on MAM server and stored to the folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\SL NEO Media Platform\run\logs\YYYY_MM\YYYY_MM_DD\, to the file extended as txt.

Use Notepadto open logs [[https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.8.2.html ]].

Logs contain iformation about operation, operation time, IP address and operation initiator login, status of completion, etc.

Client Logs(User Actions)

Media Connect client application can log user actions in Media Browser into text file. Enable this function in application settings: Media Connect→Меню File→Configure…→Storage tab→Log user actions to. Specify a path to the folder, where log file in the txt format will be saved.

Use Notepadto open logs [[https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.8.2.html ]].

Logs contain iformation about operation, operation time, status of completion, and clip name.
