Open architecture from Sun with WGBH and Artesia

Sun Microsystems has launched a complete update of its digital asset management reference architecture.

Version 2.0 manages video and rich media content including HD and SD video, photos, audio, and Flash animation.

Enhancements include more media file type support such as MXF and DV, as well as contract rights management to track licensing and distribution parameters for program materials. The system expands video server integration with broadcast video server vendors including Grass Valley and Omneon. It also integrates the latest features of broadcast automation and traffic systems by Harris and Myers Protrack.

The Reference Architecture was developed in accordance with Sun's iForce, public broadcasting producer WGBH-TV in Boston and Artesia Technologies. WGBH uses the system to manage the assets of Frontline, one of its primetime productions. The station plans to apply the Reference Architecture features to more of its public programs when production moves to new facilities in early 2006. Others using the Reference Architecture include TV4, Sweden's broadcasting channel.
