Silicon Graphics Broadcast Europe and Ardendo have teamed up to provide European broadcasters with complete and highly customized media asset management (MAM) solutions.
The collaboration between the two companies is a key component of the SGI Open Broadcast Initiative, which enables broadcasters to smoothly transition from analog to digital infrastructures. Ardendo’s software solutions for digital archiving, ingest, media asset management, transcoding and browse editing have been chosen by SGI for many of its integration projects. Among the latest of these projects being the implementation of a complete workflow at CIRIS post-production facility in the Netherlands, where ARDOME, the MAM system from Ardendo, was integrated by Silicon Graphics Broadcast Europe into the SGI InfiniteStorage and server solutions.
The new relationship will result in integrated solutions that take full advantage of the hardware, software and expertise of the two companies.
