CNBC Divisions Equip with Flashnet

CNBC Asia and CNBC Europe have installed SGL’s FlashNet content management system with Grass Valley Stratus. Both facilities are operated by Singapore-headquartered CNBC subsidiary CNBC International, which is owned by NBCUniversal.

Both installations are identical. SGL FlashNet is integrated with Grass Valley’s Stratus production suite and manages a SpectraLogic T680 tape library. Access to the SGL archive is via Grass Valley’s toolset. The CNBC Asia project is part of a major upgrade whilst the installation at CNBC Europe provides a wholly new archive environment.

“The combined SGL and Grass Valley solution enables operators to work collaboratively and accomplish tasks in parallel,” states SGL. “It also allows full support for GXF partial file restore; a critical feature for Grass Valley customers. Editors can select clips for archive or restore from the SGL archive via Stratus and can also view low-res proxies of material held in the archive, and mark in and out points to restore just part of the clip.”

Donald Li SGL’s Director of Sales APAC said, “These installations provide CNBC Asia and CNBC Europe with efficient storage management services that grow with the facility. The seamless integration of Grass Valley’s production tools and the SGL FlashNet archive provides operators with a simplified toolset with easy-to-understand workflow rules. Configured into a collaborative production environment, the workflows provide media organisations such as CNBC Asia and CNBC Europe with all the tools necessary to plan, create, publish and archive their media.”
