Crawford acquires new SAMMA robot

Crawford Media Management has acquired a new Betacam tape robot from SAMMA Systems. This robot, coupled with Crawford’s existing SAMMA Solo videotape to digital file migration systems, enhances the company’s services.

The Betacam tape robot is completely contained and provides three simultaneous tape sources, each capable of up to three encode streams. Supported codecs include SD MXF-wrapped JPEG2000 and a combination of two other formats: MPEG-2, Windows Media, QuickTime or Flash.

Crawford launched its Media Management division in 2007. The SAMMA platform is key to overcoming the huge backlog of tape media that awaits digital migration. The company has been migrating in double shifts at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., since December.
