The StorageTek StreamLine SL8500 library system is designed to reduce storage management complexity, improve performance, reliability and accessibility, and allow for cost effective growth.
At NAB, Sun Microsystems announced new products designed to help media, entertainment and broadcast companies manage and distribute digital content to multiple platforms.
Sun demonstrated solutions with key partners to provide media distribution and management from the data center to consumer platforms including HDTV, IPTV, Blu-ray disc, mobile phone, PC and TV set-top box.
With the acquisition of StorageTek, a provider of enterprise content lifecycle management, Sun showcased a hierarchical storage management solution for the broadcast and production industry based on the Sun StoreEdge and StorageTek Flexline product lines (SL500, SL8500 and 6920 mid-range disk and NAS).
These product lines are designed to reduce storage management complexity, improve performance, reliability and accessibility, and allow for easier growth cost effectively.
Sun also showed its Media Asset Management Reference (MAM) Architecture 2.2. Java technologies, Sun said, have been employed to improve overall workflow efficiency and enhance integration with an even wider range of legacy broadcast systems such as Harris and Avid playout servers and Front Porch Digital's DIVA archive solution.
