Omneon and Front Porch Digital join to accelerate media access
Front Porch Digital and Omneon have announced a collaboration to deliver a tightly integrated system that combines the two companies’ flagship products for active storage and content management.
The Omneon MediaGrid active storage system and the Front Porch Digital DIVArchive content storage management (CSM) system have now been tested together and are in use with leading broadcasters worldwide.
Based on a combination of software and hardware components, DIVArchive is a CSM solution for preserving, managing and accessing content for operations of all sizes. The MediaGrid was designed to meet the storage capacity and bandwidth demands of large media files.
Integration of the two systems provides broadcasters and other media companies with extremely fast access to archived content, something especially important in fast-paced media environments such as sports production.
DIVArchive can be used with the MediaGrid system for a number of content management applications within an operation. The integrated system provides extremely fast performance and secure transactions, and is currently in operation at leading broadcast operations worldwide, including NRK (Norway), ESPN Star Sports (Singapore), TVI (Portugal), Arqiva (UK), and DISH Network (USA).
