Belgium-based SONUMA (Société de Numérisation et de Commercialisation des Archives Audiovisuelles) has selected Quantum’s StorNext 5 content workflow solutions to help with a digitisation and digital restoration project. SONUMA is a subsidiary of RTBF (Radio Télévision Belge Francophone) and Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, and as the owner of RTBF’s TV and radio archives, it aims to preserve, digitise and monetise these archives. SONUMA will be digitising 8000 hours of 16mm film, resulting in more than 8PB of content, and required a scale-out storage solution that it could deploy in its existing environment. Working with Quantum reseller VP Media Solutions, the company purchased a StorNext M441 metadata appliance and StorNext QX-120. The DPX 2K files resulting from the digitisation process will be ingested directly into StorNext, where digital restoration and transcoding operations will be conducted and the content will be preserved. “Our archive is a real goldmine, stretching back over more than 80 years of radio and nearly 60 years of television,” said Eric Denis, IT manager, SONUMA. “To accomplish the digitisation, the ingest in 2K format and the realtime transcoding of these 8000 hours of archive, we chose Quantum’s StorNext 5 solution because of its high performance and seamless integration into our content workflow.” www.stornext.com
