Crawford Media Management, a division of Crawford Communications, has purchased a second Betacam tape robot by SAMMA Systems. This robot, coupled with Crawford’s existing robot and four SAMMA Solo videotape to digital file migration systems, further enhances the company’s services.
The new robot is completely self contained with five simultaneous tape sources and is capable of encoding up to three files per tape. Among the supported codecs are lossless JPEG2000, MPEG-2, Windows Media, H.264 and On2. Files may be wrapped as MXF, QuickTime or Flash.
Crawford launched its media management division in 2007.
