June 27, 2014
FRANCE —BBC Studios and Post Production's Digital Media Services is installing
Front Porch Digital’s DIVArchive CSM and DIVAdirector media asset management
systems will allow the Digital Media Services team to provide secure long-term
storage for clients' assets alongside existing services such as film and tape
digitization, digital image restoration, and Digital Production Partnership
delivery, enabling a true end-to-end digitization, transcoding, restoration,
and archive service.
DIVArchive and DIVAdirector systems will store, or fully or partially restore,
the DPP asset and check the integrity of any asset via checksum calculation and
tracking. The systems will also speed up the workflow when content is being
ingested for long-term archiving, eliminating the need to transfer or deliver
large amounts of data to clients. The Digital Media Services business can now
also offer migration to new formats as part of its services in order to
future-proof clients' assets.
will allow the Digital Media Services team to create a consistent metadata
database as a future resource while DIVArchive provides a cost-effective
interim storage solution at short notice. The investment fits with the
company's business model, providing the flexibility to scale up quickly.
