Smart Tasker

This industry first feature allows a single console to monitor and control all resources and tasks while having deployed them on the Cloud -- even those across third party tools without multiple experts having to operate them. Now you can Pause, Resume and Re-Prioritize as required, tasks as varied as transcoding, HSM storage or network file transfer. Now that's what we call highest efficiency and lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Native Frame Rate Conversion Support

CLEAR Operations Cloud gets an upgrade with Standards Conversion support allowing for Frame Rate Conversion as part of any content operations workflow. Trust CLEAR Media ERP Suite to delight and not just satisfy you -- support extends to auto transformation of Subtitle and for any annotation and edit performed on one frame rate version.

Live Event Support

Story Teller

Biggest empowerment to the creative user. Have the power to tell compelling stories by creating, sharpening and sharing incisive stories on the fly and in the moment across live and library content. With deep search, data overlays and filtering possibilities, you are certain to package one heck of a story.

CLEAR Player with Data overlays & advanced security support

The secure, multi-track and frame accurate CLEAR Player gets a facelift! Now integrate and overlay Live Data with a growing proxy, and enjoy advanced key encryption for piracy protection.

Enhanced CLEAR Storage Manager

Your CLEAR Storage Manager perfectly understands how crazy things can get during Live. Hence it now offers Store and Partial Restore for growing files on disk when recording Live sources.

High Availability & Business Continuity Enhancements

Site-to-Site DR (disaster recovery)

CLEAR hybrid cloud platform offers 99.987% availability and is ISO 27001 certified for business assurance. And you thought things cannot get better? There is no room for excuses when you are running your content business on CLEAR. In a world's first, CLEAR introduces Site-to-Site application DR with support for content and application ensuring 100% business continuity. That's CLEAR 'unbreakable', for you. Now also manage multiple Archive Managers for storage and retrieval across hybrid cloud locations for high availability and instant DR. Of course, this is a topic for discussion, as to how to make this work for you too.

CLEAR embedded in Premier Pro

CLEAR has made the life of a content editor seamless. With CLEAR now natively embedded into Adobe Premier Pro, you now have access to full asset management functionality of CLEAR right with the Premiere Pro NLE. So you focus on the edit without having to juggle screens.

As always, CLEAR sets the bar so high and later raises it by a few notches. You're cordially invited to our booth (Hall 7, Booth #J 16) to witness demonstrations of these cool new industry defining features of the award winning and market leading CLEAR Media ERP Suite on Cloud.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
