Software Time Tailor (STT) is the prime time video optimization tool of Prime Image, which optimizes the execution time of the videos with transmission quality and allows the insertion of additional ads in the programs, as well as the clipping of content.
The STT has the same functionality as the Time Tailor 3500 and Time Controller Digital Media Controller (DMC) products based on the brand's hardware, but can be run in a cloud environment or on a generic Dell server in the customer's data center. All Prime Image Time Tailor products provide automated content micro-editing that maintains creative intent while creating runtime for additional revenue generation opportunities.
Users also use the product for automatic content trimming and for specific niche uses, such as reducing the perception of transmission delay in remote studio broadcasts.
Time Tailor software runs on Linux or Windows operating systems in a virtual machine configuration, and the cloud service is an option that uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure.
In addition to the cloud service, other optional features include support for precise blind captioning, blackboard and black formatting at the start of the program or between segments, a vertical cut log file that specifies all vertical cuts expressed in time codes or frames, a chapter retreat mode, among others.
