VOA Selects Front Porch DIVArchive
Voice of America has selected the Front Porch Digital DIVArchive solution to facilitate secure storage, identification and retrieval of its video assets as part of a transition to a tapeless, file-based workflow.

The VOA, a multimedia international broadcasting service funded by the U.S. government, is expected to be online in spring 2009.

DIVArchive will be installed with a single manager and actor, but the system's modular architecture makes it scalable. Initially, the workflow will be configured with 13 TB of nearline SAN and 3,500 hours of storage on LTO-4 datatapes. At VOA, DIVArchive will move assets between Omneon media servers and a Spectra T950 tape library under the direction of Dalet media asset management.

"VOA wisely recognized that they would require sophisticated storage management as an integral part of the transition to a tapeless environment," said Dave Polyard, Front Porch Digital's senior vice president of sales for the Americas. "Proven in more than 280 installations worldwide, DIVArchive is the glue that holds together an automated, streamlined system for identifying, storing, preserving, and retrieving VOA's digitized video assets. And DIVArchive's scalability ensures that the digital workflow will be efficient and effective for years to come."

Front Porch Digital meanwhile has launched a new product designed for migrating video content away from legacy video tape and onto high density data tape. The DIVAsolo incorporates SAMMA Solo robotic migration hardware device and Front Porch's DIVArchive and DIVAdirector into a scalable system for migrating various sizes of videotape collections.
