MTV Networks chooses Front Porch Digital solutions for content sharing
MTV Networks has implemented Front Porch Digital’s DIVArchive and DIVAnet solutions for a broadcast content archive management system between its network operations center in Long Island, NY, and its backup facility in Nashville, TN.
At MTV Networks, DIVAnet links, via WAN, independent DIVArchive systems located in New York and Tennessee. For a given clip, DIVAnet transfers not only the standard MPEG wrapper and essence file, but also associated metadata to facilitate later identification and placement. In addition, it accomplishes long-distance file transfers without human intervention. For example, DIVAnet can identify a network problem that might interfere with content transfers and direct the content to a buffer until the problem has been resolved. MTV Networks implemented Front Porch Digital's content storage management system in May of this year.
