Doordarshan Links Archive With Tedial MAM

Indian public service broadcaster Doordarshan has installed a Tarsys enterprise MAM system at its Kolkata facility.

The Tedial archive system provides operators with core and browser-based desktop media tools as well as a fully integrated archive system, able to scale in volume and throughput. The archive will connect to Doordarshan’s sites in other regions as well as its central archive in Delhi.

The installation, carried out by Tedial’s Indian partner MediaGuru, will enable Doordarshan to ingest its existing U-matic, Betacam SP, DVCPR050 and XDCAM HD422 programme content stored on tapes and optical disc media, into the system in both high and low resolution formats.

Tarsys is integrated with 30TB of HP Online Storage and a 48-slot HP LTO6 tape library as well as Tektronix Cerify QC for automated quality control of file-based content. It enables operators at the facility to browse, catalogue, search and store content via the Tedial web-client.

Ashish De, Director Engineering at Doordarshan says, “The Tedial MAM system provides us with an integrated archive that is fully scalable enabling us to expand the system, as and when the time comes. Tarsys was recommended to us by MediaGuru following a rigorous tender process and we are very happy with the system.”
