IPV Partners with StorExcel

StorExcel AXZiS integrates Curator MAM and Quantum Xcellis shared storage for increased performance in collaborative workflow environments.

Media asset management specialist, IPV is joining forces with StorExcel to integrate strategic StorExcel's AXZiS platform with IPV Curator and with the Quantum Xcellis storage system.

“As part of our fully integrated AXZiS platform, IPV Curator provides a robust and proven end-to-end asset management layer that seamlessly coordinates media production, editing, and content management,” said Lance Hukill, president at StorExcel. “The synergistic integration of Curator into AXZiS makes it easy for companies both large and small to quickly realize sophisticated MAM capabilities within their collaborative production workflows and, in turn, maximize the value of their media assets.”

“Integrating components in this way significantly increases production efficiency, reduces operating costs, and creates a new means for driving content production in both live and non-live environments,” added Nigel Booth, IPV’s EVP for business development. “The StorExcel AXZiS platform built on our Curator MAM system and Quantum’s Xcellis storage system will assist any organization wanting to speed up the production process or efficiently manage its archive.”

Running on the Quantum Xcellis shared storage platform as a native application, IPV’s Curator offers archive management in which media assets are migrated through storage tiers according to their age, temporal relevance, and priority. The system ensures that assets reside on the most appropriate storage media from on premise systems to the cloud.

In the sports production environment, IPV Curator gives users contextual search and automated proxy workflow tools that allow them to show every goal, strike, assist, run, and slam dunk as it happens, supported by commentary and trending opinion. For highlights programs, IPV Curator allows concurrent users to perform translation, subtitling, and editing, all on low-resolution, metadata, timecode-accurate files before all elements are brought together in the high-resolution program.
