Itfc Extends Mediaflex For Digital Archiving

TransMedia Dynamics (TMD), a leader in the development and delivery of solutions and services to the global media, broadcast and archive industries, has won a new contract with itfc, the London-based provider of content management and media access services.
The deal will see TMD implement an archive solution that will enable itfc to add flexible, cost-effective storage to their existing system, along with the ability to offer enhanced services complementing the existing digital and tape archive operations at the facility.
The new system will use TMD's Mediaflex application platform to empower streamlined workflows across the digital content supply chain, by managing Front Porch Digital's DIVArchive software platform and Quantum's iScaler 6000 enterprise-class tape library.
It provides management for both physical media and file-based content, resulting in efficient, high throughput media production and significant advances in business process integration. TMD and itfc are also working closely to expose the Mediaflex API for wider use within itfc.
Itfc Director of Engineering and Technology Dave Harris said: "The increase in storage requirements for enhanced digital and HD workflows means that we need to add capacity in a seamless manner. It must have support for our existing Mediaflex implementation and be robust, cost-effective and flexible. We selected DIVArchive because it is media-aware, has many good reference sites already working with Mediaflex, can be used as an extension of Mediaflex and offers support for partial file restore workflows which we may want to use in the future. The Quantum iScalar 6000 robotic system is also readily scalable for anticipated future expansion."
TMD Chairman and CEO Tony Taylor said: "We are delighted that itfc has chosen to centre the expansion of such a key part of its digital content business on our Mediaflex applications platform. The flexibility of Mediaflex gives it an unparalleled ability to interface with and drive third-party hardware and software products, making it ideal for organisations such as itfc which need to broaden the scope of their services while remaining highly competitve."
