XenData, Qualstar collaborate to streamline digital video archive deployment
XenData has collaborated with Qualstar to greatly simplify the deployment of digital video archives by delivering turnkey data storage solutions that run XenData software on Qualstar’s BQ Series Video Archive Systems.
Qualstar’s BQ Series consists of a high-performance robotic LTO tape library, a rack-mount Windows server with RAID cache, LTO data tapes, media, barcode labels and all the necessary interconnection cables. These systems are available with capacities from 700 hours of SD video to more than 700,000 hours.
This new initiative means that broadcasters, post-production companies and other media and entertainment organizations are now able to benefit from a complete turnkey digital video archive solution, delivered without the usual high cost of deployment.
