Andrita to manage 100TB archive with DIVArchive
West Coast facility Andrita Media Center has selected its DIVArchive system to manage the transfer, storage and restoration of content for the 26 TV channels it broadcasts around the clock — a total of almost 100TB of video files. The transition to the DIVArchive solution is taking place in conjunction with the migration of the Andrita archive to Spectra Logic LTO-4 tape storage and with the implementation of a proxy server to enable browsing of stored images.
Located in Los Angeles, the Andrita Media Center, owned and operated by Broadcast Facilities, is a 106,000sq-ft multichannel HD/SD digital server-based network origination, satellite transmission, production and post-production media facility. DIVArchive is due to be installed at Andrita this month with full implementation by the end of the month.
