BBC Studios and Post Production Installs Front Porch Digital Systems to Expand One-Stop Service

DIVArchive(R) and DIVAdirector(R) Provide Secure Long-Term Storage Component to Complete End-to-End Digitization, Transcoding, Restoration, and Archive Service

ANNECY, France — June 24, 2014 – Front Porch Digital, the global leader in cloud-based content storage management (CSM) solutions, today announced that BBC Studios and Post Production’s Digital Media Services business — the commercial subsidiary of the BBC that preserves, remasters, and manages content for clients such as Imperial War Museums — is installing Front Porch Digital’s DIVArchive(R) CSM and DIVAdirector(R) media asset management (MAM) systems. The systems will allow the Digital Media Services team to provide secure long-term storage for clients’ assets alongside existing services such as film and tape digitization, digital image restoration, and Digital Production Partnership (DPP) delivery, enabling a true end-to-end digitization, transcoding, restoration, and archive service.

“We are extending our existing services to provide reliable and secure off-site backup. This provides our clients with a simple disaster recovery option, safeguarding their precious assets and eliminating the need to invest in their own expensive archives,” said Kevin Shaw, lead technologist at BBC Studios and Post Production Digital Media Services. “In the case of larger customers that are looking to set up their own archives, we already offer a consulting service, and the addition of Front Porch Digital products broadens the scope of the advice and assistance we can offer them.”

The DIVArchive and DIVAdirector systems will store, or fully or partially restore, the DPP asset and check the integrity of any asset via checksum calculation and tracking. The systems will also speed up the workflow when content is being ingested for long-term archiving, eliminating the need to transfer or deliver large amounts of data to clients. The Digital Media Services business can now also offer migration to new formats as part of its services in order to future-proof clients’ assets.

DIVAdirector will allow the Digital Media Services team to create a consistent metadata database as a future resource while DIVArchive provides a cost-effective interim storage solution at very short notice. The investment fits with the company’s business model, providing the flexibility to scale up very quickly, from smaller projects involving a few film or tape assets to digitization of hundreds of thousands of tapes or full restoration of hundreds of hours of film.

“BBC Studios and Post Production’s Digital Media Services team is an award-winning resource in the U.K. for helping content owners conserve and maximize the value of their material,” said Rino Petricola, COO and general manager at Front Porch Digital. “It’s gratifying that Front Porch Digital systems will play a role in this important effort by further enhancing the one-stop digitization, transcoding, restoration, and secure archiving service the team already provides.”

Professional Bull Riders Choose LiGHTCuBE From MultiDyne for Fiber-Optic Field Transport

Rugged, High-Density MultiDyne Solution Supports up to 80 HD-SDI, SDI, or any Combination of Composite Video, Audio, Data, and PL, Over a Single Fiber-Optic Cable, Making it Perfect for ENG, Sports, and Announce-Booth Applications

LOCUST VALLEY, N.Y. — June 25, 2014 — MultiDyne(R), a leading provider of fiber-optic-based video and audio transport solutions for broadcast and pro A/V applications, today announced that Professional Bull Riders, Inc., (PBR) has chosen its LiGHTCuBE fiber-optic field transport system to broadcast their action packed bull riding events. Installed by ProVideo Systems, Inc. — a full-service professional video, television, and production equipment dealer and systems integrator — MultiDyne’s LiGHTCuBE is a fully customizable, rugged, and high-density solution that supports a wide range of signals, including composite, HD video, PL, IFB, audio, and more. Utilizing LiGHTCuBE, PBR can support up to 80 HD-SDI, SDI, or any combination of composite video, audio, data, and PL, over a single fiber-optic cable.

“PBR produces hundreds of events each year across the United States and around the globe, making it critical that we have a fiber-optic field transport solution that is dense, durable, compact, and easy to travel with,” said Dan Hickman, senior director of tour operations, Professional Bull Riders, Inc. “MultiDyne’s LiGHTCuBE supports a high signal count from a small, portable design that is tough in any environment. It’s perfect for our remote broadcast needs.”

ProVideo Systems, Inc. of Perrysburg, Ohio (www.provideosystems.com) provided integration, design, and consultation support for PBR. Kevin Olden, VP of engineering said, “When PBR needed a product for the ‘Toughest Sport on Dirt,’ I thought of MultiDyne. In Thackerville, Oklahoma, in temps of 115° F and above, the only cool air in the outdoor arena was coming from the back of the MultiDyne LiGHTCuBE!”

The LiGHTCuBE can be configured with DVI, RGB, and HDMI, enabling PBR to adapt to any signal environment. The powerful solution runs on 110/220 VAC power or batteries for field use. An Anton-Bauer or IDX mounting plate is included. Optical connectors include ST, SC, LC, TFOCA, PH, Tyco Expanded Beam, SMPTE, and Neutrik opticalCON.

Test and monitoring features make the LiGHTCuBE especially effective for in-the-field signal monitoring. With an HD monitor and signal generator on either end of the product, PBR can test the circuit even if the camera has not arrived. The HD test signal generator option also allows PBR to send the test pattern down the line, or to send the signal from the studio end directly to the LiGHTCuBE, to monitor the camera output and the signals arriving at the shoot.

Measuring at 14-inches cubed, the LiGHTCuBE is compact and portable enough for sports and ENG applications, announce-booth settings, and any field application where signal density is important. Carry handles allow grab-and-go access for remote or on-location productions. A weather resistant cover is available for extra protection. The LiGHTCuBE is compatible with all MultiDyne fiber-optic field transport solutions and is manufactured in the USA.

“When broadcasting from a sports arena, there are obvious environmental factors like weather, dirt, and debris that necessitate rugged equipment,” said Frank Jachetta, president at MultiDyne. “MultiDyne is well-known in the industry for developing fiber-optic transport equipment built to withstand any operating condition. That ruggedness, combined with portability, a high signal count, and advanced test and monitoring features make LiGHTCuBE the best fit for the Professional Bull Riders’ broadcast requirements.”

Quantum’s Alex Grossman to Give Keynote Address on True Cloud-Enabled Workflow at Creative Storage Conference

Will Discuss How Content Creators Can Use the Cloud to Alleviate Increasing Pressures on Post and Broadcast Production

SAN JOSE, Calif. — June 19, 2014 – Quantum Corp. (NYSE:QTM) today announced that Alex Grossman, the company’s vice president of Media and Entertainment, will serve as a keynote speaker at the 2014 Creative Storage(TM) Conference on June 24 in Culver City, California. His presentation, “The Smarter Cloud for Media: More Than Compute and Storage — True Post and Broadcast Production Workflow,” will examine how the cloud can help content creators remain competitive as they address new workflow challenges in content production and delivery while enabling broader collaboration and improved efficiency.

“Content creators in broadcast and post production are under extreme pressure to remain competitive and efficient, even as they embrace higher resolutions such as 4K, new camera formats, a growing range of delivery options, and increasingly distributed collaborative production and approval models,” said Grossman. “Together, these factors push the limits of traditional content delivery and post-production workflow strategies, as well as the underlying infrastructure that powers these systems. Choosing the right cloud workflow can enable businesses to offload these pressures and become more flexible and agile in completing creative projects.”

During his keynote, Grossman will pose basic questions about today’s workflows, how they have changed, and the challenges that businesses face in handling remote users, multiple facilities, and the need to accept and deliver content from and to various partners and clients. He will examine issues associated with moving content across organizations — touching on replication, collaborative access, version control, and security — and then look at the cloud and discuss best practices for its use in supporting creative workflows.

Attendees will learn how to choose the correct cloud infrastructure, how the cloud can enable globally dispersed teams to collaborate in real time on creative projects for faster time to market and improved efficiency, and how the cloud can provide a scalable solution for meeting changing levels of demand during the post-production process. The presentation will also outline how the cloud can provide greater security and integrity in content management while allowing users to optimize prior investments and preserve future flexibility.

Grossman has more than two decades of industry experience. Prior to joining Quantum, he was founder and CEO of Active Storage, a developer of media and Apple(R)-centric workflow storage solutions. Grossman previously was an executive within the Worldwide Product Marketing group at Apple, with responsibility for driving the development, marketing and management of Apple server and storage products. Earlier, he served as senior vice president of sales, marketing and new product development at MicroNet Technology Inc., a developer and manufacturer of storage solutions for creative professionals and IT managers. Grossman has contributed to several patents associated with media management and storage technology, and he led the team that developed the first FireWire(R)-based storage area network.

Biamp Systems Expands the Award-Winning Tesira DSP Platform

New hardware pushes Biamp AEC technology to the endpoints for increased ease and efficiency

LAS VEGAS — June 18, 2014 – Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today announced the release of version 2.1 of the company’s powerful Tesira(R) family of digital signal processing (DSP)-based solutions. For projects that require AEC, Tesira 2.1 includes two new hardware components — the EX-AEC Expander and the EEC-4 Modular Card for the EX-MOD device.

These two devices bring Biamp(R) Sona(TM) AEC technology directly to the endpoints for easy and efficient AEC and a greater variety in the way systems can be deployed. Previously, AEC cards were added to a SERVER or SERVER-IO, but now the AEC technology is embedded within the new EX-AEC hardware endpoint. If the SERVER or SERVER-IO expansion slots are full, the addition of an endpoint with AEC provides a simpler and more efficient means of expanding and adding AEC. The EX-AEC Expander and the EEC-4 Modular Card are slated to ship July 15.

Also in Tesira 2.1, Biamp has added multi-channel compression abilities to its comp/limiter compression and the option to use compressors in either advanced or simplified mode at system setup. A new independent limiter block provides more precise decision-making when choosing blocks needed for the installation.

“By providing the most flexible and scalable AVB networking capabilities in the industry, Tesira 2.1 ensures that there is a Biamp solution for every project and Biamp quality for every budget,” said Justin O’Connor, Audio Product Manager, Biamp Systems. “With the latest Tesira technology, enterprises can take audio processing from large to super-scaled platforms that provide functionality such as AVB, CobraNet, and Dante in a single Tesira chassis.”
