December 17, 2013 --
Front Porch Digital, the global leader in cloud-based content storage management (CSM) solutions, today announced that Philippine commercial television network TV5 has ordered a complete DIVArchive(R) CSM system, DIVAdirector(R) media asset management system, and DIVAgrid scalable intelligent nearline storage system to form the foundation of its digital video archive. The purchase is part of TV5's long-term strategic plan to upgrade and improve processes and equipment. TV5, which is Front Porch Digital's first customer in the Philippines, will integrate the system into its workflow to reduce the load on primary disk storage and to automate library functions.
"TV5 is essentially a content creator, and we needed a reliable and expandable archive facility to support our business and to ensure fast and efficient access to both the legacy material we have now and the new content that we are producing every day," said Dan Albert S. De Padua, first vice president and head of broadcast operations at TV5. "Front Porch Digital is an industry leader with an impressive track record among broadcasters abroad, so we're confident the DIVArchive system will help us stay competitive in a rapidly evolving media industry."
By deploying the DIVArchive system, TV5 and its parent company, MediaQuest Holdings Inc., will be able to distribute content more efficiently across all of their platforms, a key factor in increasing and retaining audience share. They will also be able to respond more quickly to requests internally and from partners to make archived material available for over-the-top or video-on-demand services, for example.
"TV5 is a major television network with a long and colorful history in the Philippines, and we're pleased to welcome the company as our first customer in that country," said Rino Petricola, senior vice president and general manager at Front Porch Digital. "Having a well-organized, easily accessible library of material will help TV5 and MediaQuest's programming and production staff provide engaging, informative, entertaining viewing across all their broadcast outlets."
