North Shore Automation Provides Full Integration Between SGL Archive, Square Box CatDV MAM
SGL has announced that it is an approved archive provider for Square Box’s CatDV MAM solution. The middleware connecting SGL FlashNet and CatDV was developed by North Shore Automation (NSA), a software development and digital asset management consultancy, and Square Box partner. The joint CatDV and SGL solution has been sold and installed by file-based systems integrator Cutting Edge Audio & Video Group based in San Francisco and Los Angeles to customers including the San Francisco 49ers, Philippines broadcaster ABS-CBN, and Intel Corporation.
CatDV integrated with SGL FlashNet provides small-to-medium sized broadcasters with a highly cost-effective MAM and archive solution. Bryson Jones, Founder, NSA recently demonstrated the combined solution on the Square Box booth #SL5025 at NAB 2015. With a simple mouse click operators can archive and restore to and from the FlashNet archive using the CatDV Pro interface. The NSA integration connects a CatDV Server using CatDV’s REST API. The integration delivers the reliability and scalability of FlashNet with quality search and organization abilities provided by CatDV.
Dave Clack, CEO, Square box says, “This has been a joint integration project between three companies that has resulted in a system that enables facilities that don’t have huge budgets to take advantage of a fully integrated MAM and archive solution. Cutting Edge was instrumental in the launch of this product bringing our three companies together and facilitating the new sales.”
Bryson Jones adds, “We’re really proud of this middleware. The CatDV SGL integration has opened up the market not just to broadcasters but to content owners in other sectors that want to manage and archive their assets. We’re looking forward to announcing new customers in the coming months.”
