​CNN Indonesia Base Newsroom on Avid and SGL

CNN Indonesia has installed SGL FlashNet as the archive management solution for its Avid Interplay PAM system. FlashNet is part of the channel’s newsroom system at its facility at the Trans Corp Headquarters in Jakarta.

SGL designed and configured the installation with systems integrator, Ideal Systems.

The integrated SGL FlashNet and Avid Interplay PAM installed at CNN Indonesia provides operators with a number of key features including: partial file restore from within Avid Media Composer; automated tracking and management of archived content across the lifecycle of the archived asset; high-speed retrieval of recently archived assets; and lifecycle management of long-term archived assets between on-site and off-site storage, providing DR workflows, long term asset security and business continuity processes.

CNN Indonesia’s Interplay PAM operators and the Avid PAM automated workflow, archives and restores to-and-from SGL FlashNet to disk and tape archives on-site. FlashNet Storage Manager automatically manages the creation, duplication, verification and deletion of archived material in, and between, CNN Indonesia’s on-site disc and tape archive and its off-site DR tape archive for DR purposes throughout the lifecycle of material. An off-site standby FlashNet archive management system is also available for business continuity purposes if DR is required.
