Levels Beyond, Quantum Team Up on Asset Management Solution
“The growing amount of digital content, and shorter turnaround time for repurposing and monetizing those assets, is a significant data management challenge for companies that work with video,” said Lance Hukill, vice president, Big Data Market Development, Quantum. “Building on our leadership position in media and entertainment, the integration of StorNext appliances with Levels Beyond’s Reach Engine platform will provide customers with an an easy-to-use, comprehensive media management and archiving solution that is simple to deploy and available at a very attractive price point.”
Reach Engine will be paired with the StorNext Metadata appliances, StorNext Q-series storage and StorNext AEL archives. The combination is a very competitively priced media asset management system that can automate media processes, such as the conversion of video formats and transfers, and manage content across multiple tiers of storage. The resulting assets are accessible either locally or remotely for timely collaboration on media projects. The integrated solution is designed to scale from management of a library as small as tens of thousands of assets to one that can support multiple petabyte enterprises.
“We designed Reach Engine to be compatible with the most popular content editors and media tools in use by businesses today,” said Danny Gold, vice president, strategy and solutions, Levels Beyond. “This integrated product enables companies of any size to use workflows and business rules to actively manage a content library, leveraging the power of Quantum StorNext’s multi-tier storage solutions.”
The Reach Engine media management platform is based on open standards, which allows media organizations to pick product configurations which best meet their needs.
