Avalon's Batch Ingest feature provides a method of building one or more media objects at a time from uploaded content and metadata outside the user interface. A batch ingest is started by uploading an Ingest Package consisting of one Manifest File and zero or more Content Files to the Avalon dropbox. For your convenience there is a demo batch available for download and importing into test systems.
