Quantum Partners With Multiple Media Asset Managers, Bringing "Forever" Active Content Preservation to Post and Broadcast Studios

StorNext Integration With Market-Leading MAM Suppliers Enables Customers to Leverage Object Storage in Content Workflows for Archive-on-Ingest, Transcoding and Rapid Asset Retrieval

Marketwired

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2013) - National Association of Broadcasters -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), a proven global expert in big data management and data protection, today announced that it has integrated technology partnerships with market-leading media asset management (MAM) companies to enable seamless sharing of content within end-to-end workflows in StorNext® environments. Because Quantum's new Lattus™-M object storage-based "forever disk archive" incorporates StorNext's user-defined content movement engine, those MAM workflows can include a new active nearline archive and enable rapid retrieval of content and assets for repurposing. Quantum's MAM partners include leading companies such as Levels Beyond, Dalet, Vizrt, Primestream, CatDV, Cinegy and OpenText.

As part of a StorNext-managed content archive, Lattus-M offers a new nearline storage option for petabyte-scale archives that is more durable than traditional RAID storage, incorporating self-healing and protection capabilities and predictably fast retrieval times at a price more typical of tape-based long-term storage. Lattus-M is built to provide scalable, onsite and globally distributed content preservation choices for managing petabytes of video assets created and maintained by post production facilities and broadcasters. By adding Lattus-M as a new content tier, MAMs can provide archive on ingest and move content from work in process to archive and back in a seamless and accelerated manner.

Quantum will debut Lattus-M and other StorNext software and appliance offerings at its National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) booth #SL9016, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 8-11.

"By continuing to grow the number of media asset management technologies that integrate with StorNext, our customers have the flexibility to optimize their content workflow with a policy-based nearline archive. With greater workflow demands placed on post and broadcast facilities, there is a tremendous need to balance the cost-effectiveness found in traditional long-term archive products with the speeds of near online disk performance. Quantum's incorporation of object storage with StorNext and its ability to seamlessly integrate with market-leading asset management solutions provide an ideal platform for content preservation that is unmatched in the industry."
