EGYPTIAN FOOTBALL CHANNEL SCORES WITH SGL Posted: 15/03/2010
EGYPTIAN FOOTBALL CHANNEL SCORES WITH SGL
 
Software Generation Ltd (SGL), a leading provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, has today announced that Egyptian football club channel Al Ahly TV has installed a FlashBox archive in its new facility in the Egyptian Media Production City near Cairo. Al Ahly is the most successful club in the history of the Egyptian Premier League. The system was installed by SGL's partner Systems Design and is part of a complete end-to-end digital broadcast installation.
 
Using SGL FlashBox, Al-Ahly TV will archive edited content that can be retrieved at a later date by Harris's Nexio AMP production and transmission servers. Prior to installing FlashBox the workflow process was laborious: material was edited on a production server, recorded to videotape and then re-ingested or transferred to the transmission server - depending on available capacity on the servers. When the transmission servers began to reach their capacity, the operator would delete the clip and re-ingest when required. FlashBox significantly improves this workflow. Now when the channel requires a clip it simply retrieves it from the archive.
 
"FlashBox is a good start-up self-contained archive package that will save the channel time and resources because it removes the requirement for VTRs for ingest. SGL was chosen for its good reputation and its seamless integration to the Harris Nexio servers," explains Ahmed Gamal, Managing Director, Systems Design.
 
Bernie Walsh, SGL's Worldwide Sales and Joint Managing Director adds, "We are delighted to announce this installation and to highlight SGL's commitment to the region. FlashBox provides smaller facilities with a fully integrated HSM archive system, significantly reducing costs and improving workflow procedures."
