SGL to show FlashBrowse II

Software Generation Ltd (SGL), a provider of content archive and storage management technology, will introduce FlashBrowse II and a new XML-based API at NAB.

These new products further enhance the company’s FlashNet archive and storage system for media and entertainment content. FlashNet is designed around a clustered architecture, which scales from a single archive server to an infinite number of I/O machines.

FlashBrowse II is a client-based Web tool that allows FlashNet users to capture simple metadata and archive and restore media from many different forms of archive. Web-browser based, FlashBrowse II can be used on any platform including Mac, PC or Linux. Users search for content held in the archive and can view low-res proxy versions without restoring the original material from the archive.

The XML interface offers third-party developers the ability to get to the heart of a FlashNet archive without the burden of complex archive awareness. The socket-based API provides a robust and agile interface to FlashNet. Using the flexibility of standard XML, a full set of commands equivalent to the more traditional FlashNet API is supported.
