Direct Connect SGL to Avid ISIS at IBC

SGL is presenting Direct Connect for Avid ISIS among a number of fresh technology and third-party integration projects at IBC.

The advent of 4K and 8K formats has made a huge difference in terms of clarity of image, but the sheer size of files can cause bottlenecks, reducing transfer times and hindering system performance. Using Direct Connect, clips or sequences over several GBs in size can be archived and retrieved “significantly faster”, as can shorter clips with high bit rates such as HD trailers and commercials.

Cloud storage is playing an increasing role within archiving workflows. At IBC, SGL will showcase cloud-based archiving to Amazon’s S3 and Sony’s Ci Cloud services. Working with Aspera and Data Expedition, SGL enables broadcasters and content owners to transfer media to AWS services and Sony cloud services at a guaranteed speed, providing an additional means of storage and disaster recovery workflows.

Throughout the show, SGL will demonstrate a full archive using GV Stratus, hosted by a Grass Valley presenter. GV Stratus includes full search, archive and restore integrated directly with SGL’s FlashNet archive. The presentation will include FlashNet’s control of job queues directly from Stratus.

The migration of tape assets from one platform to another, or from one generation to another is a costly and time-consuming process. At IBC, SGL is launching its FlashNet Migration Service, which enables a whole migration to be set up as a single background task that optimises the use of available archiving equipment and speeds up processes. This reduces migration times by half.

“SGL is dedicated to providing broadcasters and content owners large and small with flexible archive systems that meet the requirements of their business. These latest announcements enhance FlashNet’s unrivalled capabilities for today’s video requirements,” explains Lee Sheppard, SGL Director of Product Management.
