Sundance Digital has introduced the Sundance Archive Engine storage system designed specifically for handling broadcast video at small stations. The Archive Engine is a fully integrated, configured archiving solution that enables broadcasters to easily retrieve archive footage, and spend fewer man hours recovering video and managing storage assets.
Built around a 16-drive Avid storage chassis, with 500GB SATA drives, a hardware RAID controller, SGL FlashNet and the Sundance Archive Manager software application, the Sundance Archive Engine communicates with FlashNet to issue pull, send and delete requests to the Engine. The Sundance Archive Manager application supervises media on the on-air server and nearline storage, deciding which clips should be sent and retrieved from the Sundance Archive Engine.
