NAB 2013: SGL To Unveil Notification Service for LTFS Workflow
SGL will unveil its Notification Service, providing the next step in the LTFS workflow that enables ingest of material directly into the archive. The company will also highlight its fully integrated FlashNet workflows on the HP (SL9605) and EVS (SL2416) booths. SGLâ€™s Open System architecture provides broadcasters, post production facilities, and news/sport organizations with reliable, scalable solutions with substantial cost and workflow benefits.
NAB 2013 will mark the worldwide debut of its notification service and FlashNet integration with EVS’ IP Director.
The arrival of LTFS has switched the traditional ingest workflow around by enabling material to be transferred directly into the archive, opening up an array of new workflows and creating substantial time and cost benefits. Taking the next step in this transition, SGL will announce the Notification Service. Using a simple subscription setup, the Notification Service announces the arrival of new material to the controlling MAM system and pushes relevant data to the MAM describing material archived based on rules selected by the broadcaster.
SGL FlashNet is now fully integrated with IPDirector, EVSâ€™ suite of video production management applications. The SGL FlashNet archive provides high availability for any combination of disk and tape storage. With the addition of LTO technology the storage capability of EVS systems can be expanded. The integration will be shown on the EVS booth SL2416.
SGL also will be demonstrating FlashBrowse, its web-based portal that allows users to perform archive, search, browse, and restore operations from any machine on their network running a compatible web browser. In addition, FlashBrowse captures low-res proxy versions of clips as they are archived, and includes a proxy viewer within the browser window, so that the user can search for and view clips before restoring them.
