Amsterdam, IBC, Booth 7.J15a – 11th September 2015 – SGL, a leading provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, is announcing FlashPack at IBC 2015 on stand 7.J15a. A complete turnkey archiving system designed for use with all major media and production asset management systems, FlashPack provides a cost-effective, entry-level archive system with no extra hardware, no extra software and no hidden costs.
Global broadcasters large and small require sophisticated archive technology that enables assets to be managed and stored. However, a large archive with full disaster recovery workflows may not be appealing to a smaller broadcaster in a single location with fewer assets. SGL FlashPack provides a complete archive and content management solution that includes all the features required for a fully integrated, infinitely scalable media archive such as hardware, software, support and integration with a MAM or production system.
At the heart of FlashPack is SGL FlashNet, the industry leading content archive and storage management solution. FlashPack harnesses FlashNet’s power, resilience and scalability, in a compact entry-level solution. It is ideal for broadcasters, sports venues, post-production houses, corporate communications and other organisations that need to manage their media assets.
Implementation is simple and is completed remotely, linking FlashPack to the user’s MAM or PAM system. FlashPack is easily manageable by creative professionals, not requiring dedicated IT resources.
Lee Sheppard, SGL’s Director of Product Management explains, “The FlashPack complete storage archive addresses the need for a separate, self-contained system providing a price versus performance ratio that lowers the cost of entry while ensuring the key business criteria of future scalability and security.”
As well as FlashPack, SGL will be showcasing new technology and third-party integration projects for the first time in Europe at IBC 2015.
Software Generation, Ltd is a privately held archive management software company headquartered in Fareham, England. SGL has been in business since 1989 and the company has over 4,500 instances of its flagship FlashNet product running around the world. More information can be found at www.sglbroadcast.com.
