Software Generation Ltd (SGL) is a leading provider of Content Archive and Storage Management software solutions. SGL, still the only truly certified integrated archive solution for the Avid Interplay non-linear workflow engine, will have a fully functional, fully integrated Avid Interplay on its booth, which will be demonstrated by first-class demo artists. As part of this workflow, SGL will introduce FlashBrowse, FlashBox and FlashTurbo Accelerator for Avid ISIS to the American broadcast market. Integration, strong business benefits, system expansion and low cost of ownership are the focal issues for any broadcaster and these points will be key to the demonstration. Worldwide Debut: FlashBrowse: Making its worldwide debut, FlashBrowse is SGL’s new creation tool that enables browse copies of archive material to be stored outside of an Avid ISIS Media Network, providing a fast, cost-effective solution for post production facilities and broadcasters. FlashBrowse provides an interface, independent of Avid’s Interplay non-linear workflow engine, allowing material to be searched and viewed and then automatically restored back into the Avid ISIS Media Network. US Debut: FlashBox: FlashBox is SGL’s new, all-in-one archive solution, which starts with a 4TB disk archive, a single LTO4 tape drive and 10 x 800GB tape slots, providing 12TB of entry-level storage. Based on SGL’s FlashNet content storage and archive management software, and best of breed hardware, FlashBox provides a number of technology and business benefits including, scalable disk and tape storage with LT04 tape technology. FlashBox ships with ALL hardware, software, installation, training and 12 months support. FlashBox interfaces to many 3rd party control systems including Automation and MAM. FlashBox will assist a number of customers with archive requirements where a conventional infrastructure is cost prohibitive; these include post production facilities, regional broadcasters and individual broadcast departments such as news or sports. FlashTurbo Accelerator for Avid ISIS: Providing a significant increase in data transfer rates, SGL’s FlashTurbo Accelerator allows direct connection with Avid’s ISIS Media Network, which has a distributed and open architecture that supports both Avid and non-Avid clients. FlashTurbo Accelerator reduces the hardware and software infrastructure required in Interplay archive configurations, providing performance, resilience and cost of ownership benefits.
