SGL intros new web tools to European market
SGL will show its web-based interface for its flagship SGL FlashNet archive system for the first time in Europe. Users of FlashNet now have a number of additional features that further simplify workflow procedures and enhance usability of the system.
SGL will also unveil its new client-based web tool — FlashBrowse 3 — to the European market. SGL’s Open System architecture provides broadcasters, postproduction facilities, and news/sport organizations with reliable, scalable solutions with substantial cost and workflow benefits.
Using SGL FlashNet, broadcasters and content owners can now very easily archive and restore material for smaller projects that fall outside the sphere of the controlling MAM or
automation systems. FlashNet GUI’s tools enable the user to bundle material as required, before archiving to any configured FlashNet disk or tape group. Users can also archive and restore Avid content for non-Interplay shared environments. Powered by SGL’s FlashBrowse, content can be sent to the archive directly from an Avid editor and restored via this simple web interface. Once in the archive metadata can be extracted or added manually. The interface can be used on any platform: Windows, PC, Mac, or Linux.
A client-based web tool that further enhances the archive workflow, FlashBrowse 3 provides at-archive browse creation, automatically generating browse resolution copies of clips as the high resolution versions are archived. The Flashbrowse 3 interface, which is an extension of the new FlashNet GUI, allows operators to instigate restores or partial file restores directly from their browser window.
