Front Porch has also extended its exclusive integration with the full range of TeleStream FlipFactory transcoding products.
This distributed, Web-based content management application addresses the most fundamental asset management requirements for global broadcasters. It enables active tracking of all assets in the DIVArchive 5.9 system, low-bit-rate proxy browse, frame-accurate EDL generation and export, and robust metadata search and management capabilities, among others.
Leveraging deep expertise obtained through the implementation of over 100 global broadcast archives, Front Porch now offers DIVAcomplete, a complete digital archive solution that includes a set of products and services that deliver integration and on-going support for complex storage and archive solutions.
