Masstech solutions provide comprehensive MAM and content-storage–management capabilities, enabling users to effortlessly move content between Sony Optical Disc Archive storage and production systems while making it easy to access, find, and manage increasing volumes of media assets. Masstech solutions’ deep integration with an extensive array of third-party automation, production, and playout systems provides a transparent bridge between Sony Optical Disc Archives and critical systems in broadcast and professional media operations, enabling content and metadata to flow unhindered in efficient, automated workflows.

“As content is used in active environments and file sizes increase, finding a seamless and dependable solution for simple, cost-efficient storage becomes integral to the clients we support,” says Alan Gagliardotto, product marketing manager, Optical Disc Archive. “Working closely with Masstech’s solutions allows all parties to achieve optimal, reliable storage capabilities, which fit easily into various workflows, from production to archive.”

The Sony Optical Disc Archive platform is fully supported by a range of accessories and solutions. The Optical Disc Archive with Masstech’s media-management solutions will also fit into advanced field-to-post workflows with Sony’s Catalyst Prepare, Catalyst Browse, and Cloud Ci.

Sony Optical Disc Archive’s scalable robotic library is positioned as a tapeless high-capacity digital archive system suitable for both nearline and deep archive applications. Additionally, the technology is well-suited for a wide range of storage applications that include sports production, editorial, mezzanine-level video and digital-media preservation.

It will be demonstrated in Sony’s booth, along with the company’s other media-storage platforms from standalone archive systems to enterprise-wide solutions, including recently introduced tape-migration appliances.
