Crispin completes System 2000 installation at WFTX
Crispin, has completed a System 2000 installation at WFTX-TV, a Cape Coral, FL, FOX affiliate. WFTX selected Crispin’s System 2000 suite of applications to support asset management, satellite recording, media ingest, device control, traffic translation and on-air playback. The Crispin solution includes five workstations, each focused on a specific workflow task.
WFTX uses Crispin's ArchiveManager (CAM) combined with an external nearline RAID to archive assets. With CAM, operators can clearly view media object detail and transfer requests and status messages along with video server and archive content. All archived material can be readily available for airing and dubbing through quick drag-and-drop asset transfers. An integrated database allows fast lookup of assets and supports volume export for optical disk libraries. The system will prompt for insertion of the needed media and automatically restore the native format file back to the video server for play-to-air. CAM is integrated with automation and, consequently, does not require middleware to manage the actual archive volumes.
