Title: MATT - Media Asset Tracking Tool
Issue Date: 2017-07-04
Abstract: In an era in which video and audio content is produced and consumed faster than ever, larger amounts of data are generated and need to be stored and organized making use of more efficient methods. This trend causes the development of complex systems that allow to handle media assets easily. These tools are called digital asset management tools, and have an important role in television production workflows.At the same time, the current development technologies are constantly evolving, originating new approaches to build software. These new technologies are allied to efficient architectural designs and practices and result in powerful tools and solutions.MATT (Media Asset Tracking Tool) borns from the combination of the two factors previously mentioned. On the one hand, a strong need for tools that support and help handling the huge amounts of data, imposed by the market. And on the other hand, a growing number of possibilities to develop more efficient solutions. This project's architecture is based on several microservices, developed with different technologies according to its purpose, which communicate through a REST apis. The tool exposes a web user interface that controls and monitors the system. This application is also cloud ready.The project was proposed by MediaGaps, which is a company that develops software for the TV production workflow. The main goal of this thesis is to develop a functional prototype of the described tool, MATT, and all the stages required to do so, such as research, development, testing and documenting.This document will start with the results of the research done regarding the technologies, architecture design and methodologies used on the project. After that, all the tool and its modules will be described in detail. In the end, the results, conclusions and future work will be presented.
