Eff is a manually operated tool, where you select files from a regular file-open dialog, and measure and process those files. However if you have larger numbers of files, this may not be adequate for your needs. In these instances, we have a Watch Folder version of Eff Comply.
The watch folder works in conjunction with a user configured profile, at any location on the local system, or on the connected network.
File filters are provided if the watch folder is intended to only be used with a limited range of file types.
Watch folder configuration is very flexible. Files that already meet the target can be renamed, and/or moved to an output folder.
Files that fail can be corrected to meet the target thresholds, as well as being renamed and moved to a new location.
Eff can also generate a range of reports and graphs, which can be provided as XML or PDF, including a daily summary report.
If you need larger scale automation, you should look at our Engine audio server, which includes a REST API, the option to work with up to 32 watch folders, and can be integrated with Telestream Vantage, Aspera Orchestrator and other workflow tools.
