Al Jazeera Sport Teams With SGL & AVID At The London Studios

A provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, has announced that The London Studios has purchased and installed a FlashNet archive.
The system, supplied by Software Generation Ltd (SGL) was deployed to coincide with the start of the UEFA Champions League group stages and to fulfil an ITV Sport contract to supply the Al Jazeera Sport channel with football coverage from all over Europe. The facility also provides footage from European, domestic and international football competitions.
Part of the famous ITV tower on London’s south bank, The London Studios is using FlashNet, SGL’s flagship solution, to archive selected footage from Avid Interplay Craft suites, which can then be restored and played out at any point during the season. FlashNet is controlled via the facility’s Avid Interplay system, taking advantage of the tight integration between the two technologies, and providing up to 1000 hours of high quality SD media.
Paul Drewett, Technology Manager at The London Studios explained: “We chose SGL because of its strong relationship with Avid, its open system architecture and scalability. The company met all of the requirements and adhered to a strict timescale.”
Bernie Walsh, SGL's Worldwide Sales & Joint Managing Director added: “We are delighted to announce this sale to The London Studios. This installation highlights SGL’s ability to tailor its solutions to meet any requirement regardless of size or deadline.”
