Front Porch Digital Intros DIVAsolo; Migrates Videotape Material to Data Tape

The marriage of Front Porch Digital and SAMMA Systems has resulted in the first new product: DIVAsolo, what Front Porch Digital says is the world’s first
all-in-one path for migrating content from legacy videotape to
high-density data tape. DIVAsolo consolidates three technologies, SAMMA Solo, the world’s leading efficient-migration appliance,
DIVArchive, and DIVAdirector into a reliable, scalable, and
cost-effective system for migrating archives of all sizes.

“Even today, most of the world’s media remains trapped on vulnerable
videotape,” says Mike Knaisch, president and chief executive officer of
Front Porch Digital. “DIVAsolo is truly a groundbreaking product because it is the
first product ever to offer a practical and cost-effective means of migrating
media content on video to reliable, secure, and more easily accessed
digital storage. We anticipate it will be particularly
welcomed by facilities feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of
videotape they have in storage.”

DIVAsolo uses a SAMMA
robot to provide real-time simultaneous encoding of content stored on
videotape into digital files then leverages the power of the DIVArchive
content storage management (CSM) system to store and protect those
files. DIVAsolo also incorporates a browser-based media asset manager,
DIVAdirector, to provide desktop access to stored content.

DIVAsolo supports multiple encoding formats ranging from uncompressed
through lossless JPEG2000 compressed for archive, to MPEG2, DV for
editing, and H.264 for proxy viewing. DIVAsolo’s ability to generate
simultaneously multiple essence formats in real time is a tremendous
timesaver, especially in large volume operations.
