BBC Studios Archives With Front Porch Digital

News Image
BBC Studios and Post Production's Digital Media Services business is installing Front Porch Digital's DIVArchive CSM and DIVAdirector media asset management (MAM) systems.

The systems will enable the Digital Media Services team to provide long-term storage for clients' assets, while also providing existing services such as film and tape digitisation, digital image restoration and Digital Production Partnership (DPP) delivery.
The DIVArchive and DIVAdirector systems store or fully or partially restore the DPP asset and check the integrity of any asset via checksum calculation and tracking. The aim of the installation is to hasten the workflow when content is being ingested for long-term archiving. This eliminates the need to transfer or deliver large amounts of data to clients. The Digital Media Services business also offers migration to new formats as part of its services.
DIVAdirector will also enable the Digital Media Services team to create a metadata database as a future resource. The investment fits with the company's business model, providing the ability to scale up, from smaller projects involving a few film or tape assets, to the digitisation of hundreds of thousands of tapes or full restoration of hundreds of hours of film.
"We are extending our existing services to provide reliable and secure off-site backup. This provides our clients with a simple disaster recovery option, safeguarding their precious assets and eliminating the need to invest in their own expensive archives," said Kevin Shaw, lead technologist at BBC Studios and Post Production Digital Media Services. "In the case of larger customers that are looking to set up their own archives, we already offer a consulting service, and the addition of Front Porch Digital products broadens the scope of the advice and assistance we can offer them."
"BBC Studios and Post Production's Digital Media Services team is an award-winning resource in the U.K. for helping content owners conserve and maximise the value of their material," said Rino Petricola, COO and general manager at Front Porch Digital. "It's gratifying that Front Porch Digital systems will play a role in this important effort by further enhancing the one-stop digitisation, transcoding, restoration, and secure archiving service the team already provides."
