Streamline Your Workflow. Optimize Your Time.

Excuse Me, MAM?

Back in the day, a media asset management (MAM) system was a discretionary add-on typically implemented as part of a finished asset repository or archive strategy. As the industry evolved, MAMs became much more reliable, intelligent, efficient, and affordable. In addition to the basic functionality of indexing, metadata tagging, and searching, they now do everything conceivable! These days, MAM has become an essential component for many facilities – touching every part of a project lifecycle from pre- and post-production to transcode, QC, distribution, remote proxy editing, and beyond.

Our Claim To Fame

CHESA has been in the MAM game for 15 years, amassing a plethora of knowledge on the many platforms currently available. From battle-tested systems that have been around for a decade to newer disruptive SaaS platforms taking the market by storm, we are constantly re-evaluating our portfolio of MAM offerings to ensure we can deliver the right platform, automations, orchestrations and workflows to meet your requirements and budget.

(CHESA) were a wealth of information right from that first call. We discussed all of our needs, talked about all the solutions I had been researching and diagnosed all of the challenges we had been having.”

CHESA designed a solution to give everyone faster access to the data, to make content searches and retrieval quick and easy, and to reduce the amount of administration time. It’s a win on every count.”

We ingested 3-days of underwater shoots that generated 4TB of RED (REDCODE®) raw footage at 8K. We ingested it as fast as the hard drives could handle, and transcoded the footage so the producers could screen and review it, which took just a few hours. If we didn’t have CHESA’s solution, it would have taken perhaps a week; it was nice to be able to turn it around so quickly!”

My first initiative was getting a good shared storage solution and MAM platform into the workflow. I realized migrating to this workflow wasn’t a one person job, so I called CHESA.”

Workflow Engineers

At CHESA we call them workflow engineers. They are an in-house team of specialists with decades of combined experience who eat/sleep/breath workflows, scripting, automations, machine learning and – lately – cloud, containers and microservices. Our reputation was built on these individuals’ dedication to R&D, deployment, training, and support of our many clients’ MAM systems. 

Discovery On Demand

Oftentimes organizations grow organically, finding themselves with a hodgepodge of systems and technologies where they don’t even know what all they have. Workflows often consist of a series of undocumented manual and inefficient tasks. Enter the CHESA discovery. For a new client seeking the best path forward for a simple upgrade or a complete ecosystem overhaul, the CHESA Solutions Architect team engages in a workflow and infrastructure discovery to become intimately familiar with the existing environment. This discovery consists of key stakeholder interviews, systems and workflow discovery, documentation, analysis, solution architecting sessions, and the delivery and review of a formal report with recommendations and proposals
