VGTRK Upgrading All Broadcast Operations as Part of Switch to Digital ANNECY, France -- Nov. 13, 2013 -- Front Porch Digital, the global leader in cloud-based content storage management (CSM) solutions, today announced that the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) has purchased 27 DIVArchive(R) CSM systems, which will be installed for long-term storage in regional stations from Vladivostok on the Pacific Ocean to Arkhangelsk on the Arctic Ocean, and from Tomsk in Siberia to Vladikavkaz in the Caucasus. VGTRK is in the process of upgrading its more than 80 regional stations as a result of Russia's transition to digital television broadcasting. "As we modernize all of our stations and replace older equipment in every aspect of the operation, we're putting LTO archives in place not only to ensure reliable long-term preservation of decades' worth of content, but also to make the content easier to find and access," said Ilya M. Lebedev, chief of TV section, regional resources department at VGTRK. "We chose Front Porch Digital because it is the leading CSM supplier in Russia, with a strong reputation, top-notch support, and a product designed specifically for video. DIVArchive will give our various regional stations a professional-grade archiving system and immediate access to archived material from any nonlinear editing station anywhere in the newsroom, which will reduce production time and improve quality." With DIVArchive, each VGTRK station will be able to keep its various archived materials -- currently stored on a combination of film, BETACAM(R) and DVCAM(TM) tapes, DVDs, and on various networks with specialized software -- in one central repository with metadata that will make searching quick and convenient. VGTRK will install DIVArchive in a variety of facilities, from small regional stations to a large television complex in Moscow, for use in every aspect of the operation. The systems will integrate with VGTRK's media asset management and newsroom automation systems, which will further accelerate the workflow. "VGTRK is one of the largest television companies in the world and will soon represent the largest installation of DIVArchive systems in the world, as well," said Rino Petricola, senior vice president and general manager at Front Porch Digital. "VGTRK already uses our SAMMA(R) migration systems, so its decision to deploy DIVArchive to so many of its regional stations is the next step in what we hope to be a long relationship between our companies."
