SGL, a leading provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, is announcing its integration with Avid® Interplay® Web Services at NAB 2015. This latest integration between the two companies includes partial file restore, a unique feature of the Avid® Interplay® Web Services solution developed by SGL. Avid and SGL have a strong alliance that has provided customers around the world with a fully integrated MAM/PAM and archive solution.
Whilst the fully implemented Avid Interplay | Archive provides a seamless user experience, smaller work groups may require a paired down version. SGL’s support for Avid® Interplay® Web Services means that customers can use the archive capabilities that they currently require, but can employ Avid Interplay | Archive at any time in the future without the need to re-archive any content.
SGL is the only archive provider to enable partial file restore functionality as part of Avid® Interplay® Web Services. This feature enables operators to easily select and restore elements of a clip directly from the archive in high resolution. Prior to this, partial file restore functionality could only be achieved using the full Avid Interplay | Archive system.
Douglas Wynn, SGL’s VP Sales Americas, explains, “We’re delighted to announce this latest integration with Avid at NAB 2015, and to be able to provide customers with a cost-effective archive solution that allows partial file restore functionality.”
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.
