Digital Broadcast, DISC to offer optical archive storage

Digital Broadcast has entered into an agreement with DISC of Bingen, Germany, whereby Digital Broadcast will sell DISC’s NSM and PDD/BD Series storage systems as part of its MediaVault line of mass storage devices for broadcast archiving.

Digital Broadcast offers its MediaVault to television stations for near-line mass storage of commercial and news programming files. Offered as a stand-alone solution for the archiving of broadcast media files, the MediaVault is also an advantageous adjunct to Digital Broadcast’s MediaBank automated master control and NewsBank automated newsroom systems.

Utilizing the metadata contained in each video file, the MediaVault offers high-speed search capability of huge indexes of stored files. Searched files can be clicked and played on access-permitted desktop computers.

DISC’s PDD/BD Series utilizes Professional Disc for Data media that uses Blu-ray blue laser technology. This offers up to 50GB per disc, storage libraries with up to 35TB of data, and up to 14 parallel data streams with 72Mb/s each.
