The media industry’s business network

DPP Marketplace ‐ Root6

ROOT6 Technology is the company behind ContentAgent, the globally installed file-based workflow management and automation platform. The proliferation of broadcast and consumer file types and formats can cause headaches and bottlenecks in the post production and broadcast process, tying up valuable kit and manpower. ContentAgent eliminates these constrictions and the need for human intervention by automating commonly performed tasks from camera card ingest to delivery, improving accuracy and efficiency with subsequent cost savings.

ContentAgent orchestrates job automation through its potent Platinum Engine, incorporating CPU and GPU acceleration. Resolution independent, the transcoding engine can process files from SD through UHD/4K and beyond.

Using the intuitive Workflow Designer tool, processes may be set up and subsequently used by non-technical staff to free up both resources and manpower.
