Who we help

Whether you’re working in traditional post-production, developing content for new media platforms or need to create internal communications for enterprise organisations, ContentAgent can improve the efficiency, reliability, scalability and customisability of your workflow.


ContentAgent speeds up remote and local media ingest. From news to sports to promos, automated workflows make it easy for non-technical staff to ingest media. You can even accept footage at different frame rates from foreign broadcasters and quickly convert them to your local standard as part of the ingest process. ContentAgent can also be used to create deliverables of the final program master in different formats automatically.

Post houses

ContentAgent is your essential tool for camera card ingest, transcoding, viewing copies, quality control management, conversion and delivery – customers have seen processing times drop from weeks to days. Automated workflows speed up common tasks and simplify complex ones, with templates for tasks including reading Avid Media Composer sequences, creating masters and packaging content for broadcast deliverables such as AS-11 DPP files.

“ContentAgent’s integration with Tachyon and Dark Energy makes transcoding 50p into 50i easy, so now we produce all our GoPro and drone clips in 50p and transcode.”
