LYNX(SM) — Cloud Content Storage Management System
LYNX(SM) from Front Porch Digital is the industry’s first enterprise-scale cloud implementation of content storage management (CSM). LYNX delivers adaptable on-demand scalability, reduces capital and operational costs, and revolutionizes the way media organizations manage assets. LYNX leverages the latest cloud and Web technologies to provide a range of networked and distributed solutions.
The company will show LYNXdr and LYNXlocal at Thai BEx. LYNXdr is a hosted disaster recovery service that allows global media enterprises to centralize critical assets and consolidate operations, and LYNXlocal is a simple extension to LYNX that operates locally as an appliance, caching cloud content and providing integration to specialized systems as required. LYNXlocal is billed as a service element at a low monthly rate.

DIVArchive(R) V7.1 — Now for a Broader Array of Applications
At Thai BEx 2013, Front Porch Digital will showcase its DIVArchive(R) V7.1 content storage management (CSM) system. New features and capabilities make the system ideal for a broader array of applications. The new AXF Explorer offers an intuitive interface for parsing Archive eXchange Format (AXF) objects, with straightforward operations that are performed using drag-and-drop procedures similar to the Windows(R) operating system. DIVArchive V7.1 also enables a complete range of world-class video transcoding and workflows and is directly integrated with Telestream’s Vantage(R) Transcode and Vantage Transcode Pro. 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 V7.1 becomes the highly effective foundation on which to base cost-effective, seamless, file-based workflows.
In March, Front Porch Digital announced an agreement with file-transfer software company Data Expedition Inc.(R) to integrate its ExpeDat(TM) WAN acceleration product into DIVArchive V7.1. The integration gives DIVArchive users a WAN acceleration option that is fully managed and supported by Front Porch Digital. It is the first direct integration of a WAN acceleration protocol directly into a CSM cloud-based solution.

DIVAdirector(R) V5.1 — Easy and Efficient Media Asset Management System
DIVAdirector(R) V5.1 is Front Porch Digital’s newest update to its DIVAdirector media asset management (MAM) system. It is a permission-based Web application that enables complete access to file-based content stored by DIVArchive(R) content storage management (CSM) systems. DIVAdirector V5.1 contains new features that make it even easier for any media organization with DIVArchive to manage its digital files, especially if that organization is using Front Porch Digital’s new LYNX(SM) platform for moving, archiving, and publishing video to the cloud.
With cloud operations starting to dominate the industry, DIVAdirector V5.1 addresses LYNX-specific workflows and requirements, such as site awareness, with a single DIVAdirector system showing all enterprise assets stored across different archive systems — local, networked, or cloud-based systems, or any combination thereof — with integrated user permissions controlling access.

DIVASolutions SAMMA(R) Migration Systems
Front Porch Digital will also showcase its SAMMA(R) product lines at Thai BEx 2013. These solutions are the first of their kind to automate the digitization of videotape, moving content into secure, accessible, and searchable digital storage. SAMMArobot and SAMMAsolo take content from videotape on the shelf into the digital environment, using an automated workflow that’s tried and tested in high-profile installations. The SAMMAsolo product line offers a range of migration solutions built to meet specific archive migration needs.
