Digital archiving now an affordable reality
EMERALD shatters conventions to make LTO tape archiving, HQS transcoding and content management more widely accessible to the mainstream broadcast market. In keeping pace with the challenges of today’s evolving ecosystem, EMERALD performs efficient file-based archiving where scaling is not required. Like her big sister TOPAZ, EMERALD LE comes with active integration to various end-points including video servers and NLE’s. Digitally preserve your valuable stories and content with automated workflows in Production, Newsrooms and mini-MAM broadcast applications.
Masstech is a leading pioneer of products that help international broadcasters maximize efficiency and boost productivity with automatic archive, restore, partial file extraction, and low resolution proxy creation for intuitive operator searching and previewing. EMERALD integrates seamlessly into newsroom computer systems (NRCS) like iNEWS and AP ENPS and comes complete with AVID Interplay and Apple FCP production interfaces.
Masstech is defining a new price/performance benchmark for file-based workflow technology with EMERALD. EMERALD is packaged for out-of-the-box operation including server hardware, LTO library, version 7.5LE software and first year’s support. Alternatively Emerald can be accessorized and built to order making for easy implementation. Masstech’s unique fee-FREE unlimited storage licensing policy means EMERALD has virtually infinite storage capability.
EMERALD offers the ultimate news room workflow integration with Media Object Server (MOS) support to popular NRCS systems like iNEWS and AP ENPS as a standard built-in feature.
EMERALD connects to all popular archive libraries directly via Fibre Channel using Masstech’s own embedded broadcast HSM. The EMERALD turn-key bundle includes a Spectra T50e library with an LTO5 drive to get you started.
It delivers break-through performance regardless of your facility size and requirements. No longer restricted to the privileged, advanced digital archiving is now affordable and complete on one common platform. Any technology investment that focuses on reducing OpEx will improve the bottom line.
