Our framework benefits from a Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) which has been engineered to support a range of deployments from a single node through to a cluster of nodes within a data center.
This SOA design philosophy aids your ability to evolve your installation and allow it to grow as your needs change. Whether you want a centralized job queue managing many processing nodes or singular job queues managing individual nodes, our framework can accommodate your requirements.
The more nodes available the increased ability you have to enable parallel processing of a number of media assets.
All services within the framework can be deployed on Windows and Linux operating systems, or a mixture of the two.
Benefit from a floating licensing model
The simplest form of automated integration with your workflow management system is achieved using watch folders. Simply nominate a watch folder, drop folder and profile and jobs will automatically be populated into the job queue.
If you seek the next level of control, xFile framework offers simple integration via the standardized FIMS (Framework of Interoperable Media Services) Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) interface.
FIMS is a framework of service definitions for implementing media related operations using a Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) approach. SAM has chosen to support FIMS as we believe doing so will promote interoperability and reusability of services, which will ultimately benefit everyone.
