Rome (Italy).The sport channel SuperTennis TV, owned by the CONI and based in Rome, selected SI Media‘s MAM (MediStore Advanced Server platform) and SI Media‘s Traffic (MediaList, MediaSpot and MediaReport).
SI Media has deployed a complete MAM platform focused to the management of the entire workflow of the assets: starting from ingestion of the new contents, thru the archiving on the central archive (disk based) and the deep archive (IBM TS 3200 LTO-5 tape-based library) ending with the cataloguing, searching and delivery of the requested assets to the NLE workstations (equipped with Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5 and Matrox M.XIO2 LE MAX card) for the production activities.
SI Media‘s MAM takes on charge, with MediaStore Archive, also the archiving and restoring of the assets between the Harris video servers (managed by Harris Automation) and the central archive based on a NAS SATA disk based solution.
