Modern content management and monetization workflows are evolving quickly. Broadcast, owned-content, sports and enterprise video need an adaptable and flexible content management workflow environment. Automating all phases of media and content management, from ingest through transformation, delivery, archive and retrieval across multiple tiers of content optimized storage delivers efficiency, productivity and control.
Reach Engine and Quantum have integrated the Reach Engine platform with Quantum’s StorNext® solutions to simplify the deployment and lower the cost of managing video, audio and rich media assets across the enterprise. Both companies have developed a solution bundle designed to scale from as small as tens of thousands of assets to millions across the entire workflow, whether it be local or distributed.
Reach Engine is the leading value solution for tiered media production services to workgroup, medium-to-large enterprise, and cloud service customers. Reach Engine offers the greatest value and pricing at each stage in the production process—whether your business requires end-to-end workflows or is delivering a part of the value chain in the media cycle. Reach Engine is integrated with Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere workflows, enabling content editors to choose to receive media files in the format they desire. Users can work remotely, on low-res proxies, searching and accessing highlights (partial files) based on timecodes from the centralized storage and archive. The combined solution has been proven to scale to PBs of data in rapid, changing catalogues like Ultimate Fighting Championship®.
Quantum’s StorNext workflow storage solutions support the industry’s largest number of operating environments (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X), making sure the wide variety of applications within your workflow are “future-proof”. Policies can be set to relocate content on the proper tier of storage—from SSD for high throughput transcodes, to fast fibre channel disk for editing, to low-cost disk or LTO tape for archive. StorNext Pro Solutions provide a complete, high-performance shared storage solution built to support high-throughput media workflows from ingest all the way to archive.
The Reach Engine user interface is a welcome change from traditional MAMs, with video stills prominent graphically, helping content professionals move from a file-based workflow to true media-based workflows. Content retrieval is made easy through the Reach Engine’s integration with StorNext’s Partial File Retrieval (PFR) APIs—providing the ability to pull back segments of large, full-length video content based on timecodes. This enables secondary, less-expensive disk or LTO tape tiers to be part of an active and flexible workflow and not just some dormant vault.
The StorNext AEL Archive delivers a reliable, self-monitoring and self-healing, high-capacity archive intended for the long-term storage of nearline content. Quantum is the only vendor in the industry that offers the integration of a tape library and policy-based tape data integrity checking, giving customers the additional assurance of knowing that the data on their tapes is being tested and validated on a continuous and ongoing basis. And the unique slot-based pricing model preserves your investment, effectively doubling your capacity with no additional software license fees when moving from LTO-5 to LTO-6 tape standard technology.
