Archival Storage Capacity Now Extended for Digital Nirvana’s MonitorIQ BMS
NEW YORK, NY – (OCTOBER 5, 2010) – Digital Nirvana, Inc., the California-based leading provider of media industry solutions, has partnered with SAN Solutions, Inc., the innovative customized shared storage and file system technologies company, to extend the archival storage capacity of Digital Nirvana’s MonitorIQ Broadcast Monitoring System (BMS).
Designed to monitor and record broadcast television programming, the MonitorIQ BMS can be customized to record based on time block, channel, or episode. Non-stop recording can also be set for compliance logging purposes. Now, with SAN Solutions’ ArtiSAN 3000 Series High Capacity NAS Storage Platform, the archival storage capacity for Digital Nirvana’s MonitorIQ BMS is extended, providing 13 months of full resolution storage capacity, allowing broadcasters to quickly retrieve content within minutes to respond to the annual ASCAP/BMI requirements, FCC Captioning compliance, and the C.A.L.M. Acts compliance all from a single, file-based platform.
Harry Aine, president, SAN Solutions, says, “We are thrilled to be working with Digital Nirvana to support the broadcast industry with cost-effective archival solutions that perfectly compliment the MonitorIQ BMS system. Most broadcasters prefer to keep a year’s worth of air check at full resolution so that all of the compliance activities can be handled through a single system, such as MonitorIQ.”
MonitorIQ BMS is a cutting-edge solution that includes a number of unique features not available in other commercial products. It’s the next-generation broadcast monitoring system which combines the functionality of content recording (HD and SD in full resolution), content search, retrieve and repurposing, web publishing, signal monitoring, air check logging, archiving, ad verification and tracking, and competitive analysis in a highly scalable networked appliance, with a powerful web-based management user interface designed to help broadcasters improve their productivity and bottom line.
“Digital Nirvana is proud to announce this newfound partnership with SAN Solutions,” says Hiren Hindocha, chief executive officer, Digital Nirvana. “This agreement will present a cutting-edge solution which combines two first-rate technologies into one.
