Atempo Digital Archive Helps Simplify and Streamline Broadcast Workflows With Scalable Storage Integration

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwire - Sep 8, 2011) - IBC 2011 -- Atempo, a leading provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, today announced that it has integrated and certified Atempo Digital Archive (ADA) with Harmonic's Omneon MediaGrid™, to simplify and streamline broadcast workflows. The validation of ADA with Omneon MediaGrid enables archived content, from newly ingested footage to completed projects, to be easily accessible through Harmonic's scalable high-performance shared storage system, both for immediate use and for long-term preservation.

A comprehensive file archiving solution that provides an open, centrally managed and secure archive, Atempo Digital Archive addresses long-term data retention requirements and optimizes capacity during exponential data growth. The Omneon MediaGrid storage system provides high performance centralized storage with a massively scalable architecture that delivers petabytes of storage capacity with tens of gigabytes per second of bandwidth to meet the growing storage requirements of digital media workflows.

"For the accelerated workflows of video production, high performance file delivery to the various steps in the workflow is key," said Herve Collard, director of product management at Atempo. "By utilizing Atempo Digital Archive and Omneon MediaGrid together, creative professionals gain the efficiency of high-bandwidth delivery from a scalable shared storage system that now extends to files stored in the digital archive."

"For broadcast and post production markets, the integration of Atempo Digital Archive and Omneon MediaGrid aids in creating and maintaining a customized digital workflow," said Ravi Parthasarathy, senior director of MediaGrid product management at Harmonic. "MediaGrid makes it simple for clients to pinpoint storage objectives specific to projects at hand and then add only the required components needed to scale their individual needs. Simultaneously, ADA eliminates bottlenecks, ensuring that specific content is readily available and accessible from the archive at any point in the workflow."
