Ukraine’s 1+1 Media has purchased a DIVArchive CSM system from Front Porch Digital for its Kiev facility to store, archive, transcode, and restore content for the production and news departments at its five TV channels and other media outlets. DIVArchive adds to 1+1 Media’s newly-installed tape and library system.
"DIVArchive gives us a convenient and reliable archiving architecture that fully integrates with our existing playout system, media asset manager, on-air automation, and other hardware and software a major factor for us when searching for a new archiving solution," said Philip Petrenko, technical director of 1+1 Media. "It also saves a lot of time because all routine processes connected with archiving, restoring, and transcoding are now fully automated."
The new system allows full backups, reconfiguration, maintenance and upgrades without taking the system offline. It features an integrated transcoder to convert media files and uses third party transcoding software in order to create different formats for end users. DIVArchive’s storage plan management has also been used by 1+1 Media to create specific media workflows for every new task.
"DIVArchive exceeded 1+1 Media's chief requirement for compatibility with all of its existing systems," said Rino Petricola, senior vice president and general manager at Front Porch Digital. "This installation at 1+1 Media confirms the Devoncroft Partners Big Broadcast Survey report stating that Front Porch Digital is the leader in the CSM space in terms of quality, reliability, customer service, innovation, and trust."
