At IBC2006, Pro-Bel (stand 3.151) announced a strategic alliance with Software Generation (SGL‚ stand 8.320d), a leading provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment. Pro-Bel has become the first SGL partner to fully integrate the company's redesigned data archive and management software FlashNet6 with Pro-Bel's Morpheus family of products.
Leveraging a clustered architecture, FlashNet6 scales from a single archive server to an infinite number of I/O machines. As the data throughput requirements increase, the cluster can be augmented further by servers, which simply plug into the cluster and get straight to work.
The Morpheus family comprises three key products: Morpheus Automation, Morpheus Media Management and Morpheus Control and Monitoring. Morpheus Automation, central to this alliance, manages everything from simple server playout to complex channels where schedules are changing regularly and unpredictably. It introduces new concepts in user interfaces and a scalable object-oriented event structure.
