Front Porch Digital Demonstrates Integrated Products With Sony's Optical Disc Archive at IBC2013
Latest Version of Front Porch Digital's DIVArchive Integrates With Sony's Optical Disc Archive
September 12, 2013 --
Front Porch Digital, the global leader in cloud-based content storage management (CSM) solutions, today announced that the newest version of its acclaimed CSM system, DIVArchive(R), now integrates with Sony's Optical Disc Archive technology and will be demonstrated on the Front Porch Digital IBC2013 stand, 7.D14. The integration gives Front Porch Digital customers an alternate means of storage for both DIVArchive and the LYNX(SM) cloud-based disaster recovery and media asset storage service. Optical Disc Archive stores data in a compact cartridge with 12 optical discs for high-capacity file-based archiving.
"Integrating Sony's new Optical Disc Archive products gives our DIVArchive and LYNX customers another way to store content using the latest technology from a global leader," said Mike Knaisch, president and CEO of Front Porch Digital. "Sony's Optical Disc Archive products are perfect for our customers because of their ability to meet the demanding requirements of broadcast studios and other users of high-volume data."
While the integration gives Front Porch Digital customers an alternate storage technology, Sony's Optical Disc Archive customers benefit from the ability to store their important data safely, with scalable storage capacity and performance from DIVArchive and LYNX. Support from DIVArchive, which can integrate with multiple media libraries, will play an important role for a wide range of Sony's broadcast customers in expanding storage space beyond Optical Disc Archive, migrating content from tape to Optical Disc Archive, and recovering from disaster.
Front Porch Digital specializes in video archive, migration, and online video publishing, supplying solutions that are at the heart of file-based workflows within the world's best known media brands. Now, with the introduction of the LYNX platform, these solutions are moving to the cloud, enabling greater access, better availability, lower costs, and the highest-possible security. In addition, DIVAnet(R) supports any number of fully independent DIVArchive CSM systems connected across any type of wide area network (WAN) to form a globally distributed content storage repository.
