SAMMAsolo HD Video Migration Solution
Based on the newly patented SAMMA(R) technology, the SAMMAsolo HD migration solution is the first of its kind to perform real-time, quality-controlled migration of content from HD videotape into a secure managed digital environment that supports preservation while facilitating access. A fully internationalized user interface, SAMMAsolo can be customized for local languages.
The SAMMAsolo HD migration solution meets a pressing need by enabling broadcasters, heritage institutions, and other enterprises to preserve and make use of their legacy assets. SAMMAsolo migration solutions combine hardware and software to move archive-quality content from videotape to multiple file formats in a single pass. Because SAMMAsolo automates repetitive steps and uses advanced signal analysis to evaluate the quality of the videotape and to monitor and document the migration itself, the work can be accomplished with minimal staff training or staff time. The process preserves source time-code and also associates indexing and technical metadata.
DIVArchive(R) V7.0 -- Now for a Broader Array of Applications
For the first time at NATEXPO, Front Porch Digital will showcase its DIVArchive(R) V7.0 content storage management (CSM) system. The system features new capabilities to make it ideal for a broader array of applications. With its support for complex DPX packages, DIVArchive V7.0 enables video-like operations on film-carried content, making it desirable for film production and post-production applications.
DIVArchive V7.0 is also the first system of its kind to implement the new open Archive eXchange Format (AXF) technology developed by Front Porch Digital to protect, preserve, and facilitate the exchange of content among storage systems today and for the future. This new open AXF implementation represents a step toward replacing outmoded legacy formats like TAR with a truly open and storage-agnostic approach ensuring long-term accessibility to the world's most valuable content. In support of the company's open approach to technology and as a founding member of the SMPTE AXF initiative in 2006, Front Porch Digital is committed to contributing its work back to SMPTE and the community in hopes of accelerating the standardization of this important industry advancement.
The enhancements to DIVArchive extend its applicability to media operations of every kind -- broadcasters, educational and heritage institutions, the film industry, and government entities. With its unique ability to interconnect every element of operations from archive to production to transmission, DIVArchive V7.0 becomes the highly effective foundation on which to base cost-effective, seamless file-based workflows.
