SGL improves Final Cut Server integration with updates to its FlashNet content archive and storage management system (7/9/2010)

IBC, Stand 8.A25a

Software Generation Ltd (SGL), a leading provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, is unveiling advanced updates to its Final Cut Server (FCS) integration at IBC 2010. SGL’s new FlashNet FCS integration enables a more streamlined relationship between the archive and online storage, facilitating cleaner workflows.

SGL FlashNet’s advanced features allow users to copy content to the archive from the online shared storage (or workstation) directly from the FCS UI (and vice versa).Final cut users can choose to store material online and in the archive, or remove online material to free up online disk space whilst retaining archive copies. This enables organisations to implement backup and archive of their FCS assets, projects and productions, keeping content fully protected and quickly available regardless of where it is in its lifecycle. The SGL FlashNet FCS integration maintains all FCS metadata and project or production structures throughout the backup, archive and restore process.  

Final Cut Server, Apple’s media asset management solution for Final Cut Pro, provides a proxy-based workflow for increased flexibility. With SGL’s FlashNet archive solution added to the Final Cut Server environment, post production facilities and broadcasters  significantly improve  their workflows by managing the available free space on shared storage that is traditionally reserved for ‘work in progress’.    

FlashNet’s unique Open System means that the solution is easily expandable as storage requirements or user demand increases, and SGL’s clustered architecture provides unrivalled levels of resilience and reliability.

Bernie Walsh, SGL’s Worldwide Sales & Joint Managing Director comments, “This latest development is another example of how SGL is providing innovative solutions to real-world problems, and helping to redefine broadcast workflows. SGL solutions are developed to be as accessible and integration-friendly as possible, to ensure that the archive appears as a transparent storage area available to every user in all departments from within their day-to-day applications. We’re very pleased that these product enhancements will further extend and improve the workflows and production capabilities of Final Cut Server users.”  

SGL’s Open System architecture provides substantial cost and workflow benefits. Visitors to the SGL stand 8.A25a will see firsthand the company’s key philosophies of providing reliable, scalable solutions that represent high ROI and low cost of ownership.
