Masstech Kumulate Brings “Intelligent” Storage To M&E

New modular platform features developments in storage management, workflow orchestration, integrated transcode, migration tools, and integrations with Adobe and Avid.

Masstech‘s Kumulate will debut in North America at NAB NY. It has a claimed unique workflow orchestration to enable customers to automate multi-vendor and multi-format file transformations “across unlimited storage tiers in a hybrid cloud environment.”

It further streamlines metadata interchange between third-party systems and metadata enrichment services “to enable users to attain even more value from their assets.”

Masstech CEO, George Kilpatrick, said: “We’re extremely pleased to introduce Kumulate, the culmination of many months of hard work, development and conversations with existing customers and prospects. This is a major new addition to Masstech’s rich history of innovative storage and lifecycle management products; we’re already seeing great levels of interest and look forward to introducing it to our customers in North and South America.”

“Since I joined the company just over half a year ago,” Kilpatrick added, “we’ve seen many new broadcasters and digital media companies selecting Masstech for the first time including FIFA, RTCG, Dijla TV, Harvest TV and WALA. Significant expansions have also been confirmed from our existing long-term customers too, such as HBO, NBC, MBC and SABC. Many of these and our other customers have worked with our product teams to help us bring Kumulate to fruition, and we’re extremely proud of the results.”

The Kumulate Orchestrator module enables creation of workflows, and features automated tools for migrating content across hardware versions, storage tiers (e.g. tape to cloud) or from legacy systems to the next generation of storage platforms.
