Front Porch Digital To Showcase At Inter BEE
Front Porch Digital is gearing up to showcase at Inter BEE – now in its 49th year, the show is widely recognized as the largest audio, video and communications professional exhibition in Japan.
“The digitisation of media is driving incredible diversification in content, and Inter BEE has transformed itself from an event focused on broadcasting equipment to a comprehensive media exhibition,” says Rino Petricola, SVP and General Manager of Front Porch Digital. “We are looking forward to being a part of this event and sharing our latest technologies with the Japanese media markets.”
Front Porch Digital featured products at Inter BEE 2013 will include:
LYNXSM from Front Porch Digital is the industry’s first enterprise-scale cloud implementation of content storage management. LYNX delivers adaptable, on-demand scalability; reduces capital and operational costs; and revolutionises the way media organisations manage assets. LYNX leverages the latest cloud and Web technologies to provide a range of networked and distributed solutions.
LYNXdr And LYNXlocal
Front Porch Digital will present LYNXdr and LYNXlocal at Inter BEE 2013. LYNXdr is a hosted disaster recovery service that allows global media enterprises to centralise critical assets and consolidate operations. LYNXlocal is a simple extension to LYNX that operates locally as an appliance, caching cloud content and providing integration to specialised systems if needed. LYNXlocal is billed as a service element at a low monthly rate.
DIVAdirector V5.2 is the latest version of Front Porch Digital’s DIVAdirector media asset management (MAM) system, a permission-based Web application that enables complete access to file-based content stored by DIVArchive content storage management systems. DIVAdirector’s latest enhancements make the MAM more stable and versatile than ever before. With support for multiple audio channels for different language tracks, users can provide multiple language options for a given video file. Behind the scenes, the change from a Linter to PostgreSQL database offers increased stability.
DIVAdirector V5.2 also gives users more quality control options in the form of graphical metadata charts from Front Porch Digital’s SAMMA ingest system. The charts show graphical representations of metadata for video files in order to illustrate visual information such as colour, brightness, and luminance. The charts are a good way to uncover imbalances and undesirable effects in video files to ensure quality. In addition, a new QC import and analysis feature allows users to import and analyse third-party quality-control metadata.
At Inter BEE 2013, Front Porch Digital will be featuring its DIVArchive V7.1 content storage management system. New features and capabilities make the system ideal for a broader array of applications. The new AXF Explorer offers an intuitive interface for parsing Archive eXchange Format (AXF) objects, with straightforward operations that are performed using drag-and-drop procedures, just like in the Windows operating system. DIVArchive V7.1 also enables a complete range of world-class video transcoding and workflows and is directly integrated with Telestream’s Vantage Transcode and Vantage Transcode Pro. The enhancements to DIVArchive extend its applicability to media operations of every kind – broadcasters, educational and heritage institutions, the film industry, and government entities. With its unique ability to interconnect every element of operations, from archive to production to transmission, DIVArchive V7.1 becomes the highly effective foundation on which to base cost-effective, seamless file-based workflows.
DIVASolutions SAMMA Migration Systems
Front Porch Digital will also showcase its SAMMA product lines at Inter BEE 2013. These solutions are the first of their kind to automate the digitisation of videotape, moving content into secure, accessible, and searchable digital storage. SAMMArobot and SAMMAsolo take content from videotape on the shelf into the digital environment, using an automated workflow that’s tried and tested in high-profile installations. The SAMMAsolo product line offers a range of migration solutions built to meet specific archive migration needs. From a single SAMMAsolo to a multiple-stream SAMMArobot, these DIVASolutions systems maximise efficiency by encoding to multiple formats simultaneously, while also analysing content to ensure the quality of the migration.
Inter Bee 2013 runs from November 13 – 15 at Makuhari Messe, Tokyo, Japan.
