SGL Highlights Avid, FOR-A Partnerships Through LTFS Acquisition, PAM Demos
SGL, a provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, is showing a direct-acquisition-to-archive LTFS workflow at NAB 2014 on booth SL5306. SGL’s FlashNet content management solution is designed to integrate seamlessly with NRCS, MAM or automation control systems to provide significant improvements to workflow efficiency without intruding on the users’ familiar desktop.
Acquiring material on the booth using a Go-Pro camera, SGL is demonstrating its live ingest-to-archive workflow using FOR-A’s LTR Series, LTO-5 Video Archiving Recorder. The combined FOR-A and SGL offering enables customers to archive material that’s been recorded on the LTR, directly to LTO5 tape. Once in the SGL FlashNet archive, the material is available for use via FlashWeb, SGL’s user interface. This workflow is particularly advantageous for production environments where new material, including live-event feeds, is ingested.
Further strengthening its relationship with Avid, SGL has a full archive demonstration via the Avid Interplay PAM and archive demonstrations via Avid web services on the booth. Since 2004 SGL and Avid have co-developed archive content storage management solutions for broadcasters using Avid solutions. The Avid Interplay Archive is the only fully integrated archive and storage management component for the Avid Interplay digital workflow engine.
As well as a full Avid PAM demonstration, SGL is showing the integration of FlashNet with Avid Interplay Web Services. Whilst the fully implemented Avid Interplay Archive provides a seamless user experience, smaller work groups may require a paired down version. SGL’s support for Avid Web Services means that customers can use the archive capabilities that they currently require but can employ Avid Integrated Archive at any time in the future without the need to re-archive any content.
SGL is also highlighting its support for MOS, which is used to integrate and link NRCS’ with broadcast production applications and equipment; Sony ODA integration; HP archive library control; Marquis Project Parking integration and EVS Fast turnaround Sports workflow. A demonstration of the full SGL archive integration within live sports is being highlighted on the EVS booth SL 3819.
