Front Porch Digital Product Innovations at CABSAT 2011
SAMMArobot -- Large Library Tape Migration System
SAMMArobot is an automated high throughput migration system that provides up to 1,000 hours a week of videotape content conversion. The SAMMArobot is loaded with batches of between 48 and 80 videotapes, depending on format, and migrates up to seven tapes simultaneously, each with their own settings for error detection and multiple digital file outputs. A number of configurations of SAMMArobot are available to meet specific needs. The system can be configured as a single format solution for 60 Betacam or VHS, 48 U-matic, or 80 DVCAM/DVCPro cassettes handling NTSC, PAL, or SECAM. This streamlined robotic system provides high-speed, high-quality, and cost-effective migration for large videotape libraries.
DIVAdirector(R) V4.1 -- Inexpensive and Easy-to-Deploy Media Asset Management System
Front Porch Digital DIVAdirector(R) is an easy-to-use and cost-effective media asset management (MAM) system that enables operators, using their Web browsers, to search, locate, and retrieve stored media assets directly from their desktops. At CABSAT, Front Porch Digital will introduce V4.1, which adds a revamped and simplified browser interface; support for identification and retrieval of clips with noncontiguous timecode (very important for the archivist and preservation community); partial-restore format auto detection to further simplify user interaction with the complex format/wrapper challenges handled by DIVArchive(R); and management of remote proxies without the need for their replication specifically for DIVAdirector. In addition, DIVAdirector V4.1 offers enhanced integration with Front Porch Digital's SAMMA(R) Solo system, the compact, turnkey, single-stream solution for migrating media content from fragile videotape to secure, long-term digital storage.
