A broadcast and multimedia systems integrator is expanding its relationship with a content storage management company by listing the content management firm’s products on the integrator’s Government Services Administration (GSA) contracting schedule.
In a written statement, Communications Engineering, Inc. (CEI) of Newington, Va., which provides complete equipment service, support and training, said it is expanding its relationship with Front Porch Digital, which provides migration and management services and market media content, by listing its products on CEI’s GSA contracting schedule.
The combined listing makes it easier for U.S. government agencies to take advantage of the company’s DIVASolutions portfolio, including the global leading DIVArchive, SAMMA migration, and the DIVApublish products, CEI says.
“At CEI, we pick our GSA partners carefully, and we’re pleased to have Front Porch Digital products on our schedule,” said Phil Whitebloom, CEI vice president of sales and marketing. “Our customers increasingly find themselves needing to create efficient file-based workflows for their media content, and Front Porch Digital’s products and services perfectly complement the technology we deliver.”
Front Porch Digital’s DIVASolutions, which has used in the broadcast and video archiving markets, is increasingly being utilized by other organizations that are seeking solutions for the migration, management, and publishing of video content. In addition, CEI has collaborated on significant projects with Front Porch Digital, including installations within the federal government.
“The GSA schedule brings together government purchasing with the commercial products and services that represent best practice in the global marketplace,” said Mark Gray, Front Porch Digital executive vice president and general manager.
