Vector 3 enhances integration with XenData archives
Vector 3 has integrated with XenData archiving systems to support the automation of content to and from XenData archive systems whether Vector is ingesting content directly to the archive, staging it for playout or migrating files for offline storage. The new capabilities provide an accelerated content distribution workflow, critical for news and sports production environments.
XenData Archive Series software runs on a Windows server and manages one or more robotic LTO tape libraries and RAID to create a scalable digital archive. Archived files are written to LTO tape using the standard POSIX format, meaning that in addition to using XenData software, files may be restored using a wide range of Linux and UNIX operating systems.
