Front Porch Digital selected by Nickelodeon UK

Front Porch Digital, a division of Incentra Solutions, has been selected by Nickelodeon UK to implement a new DIVArchive, the preferred archive management solution for the world’s leading media brands.
The new installation marks the seventh Front Porch customer in the United Kingdom, an emerging market for digital broadcast archives.
Nickelodeon UK, a joint venture of Viacom and BSkyB, is the leading kids’ TV network in the UK, transmitting on digital satellite and all major cable networks from its London playout centre.
The new DIVArchive system will manage a 17-terabyte online disk array storage disk and connect to Pinnacle MediaStream 8000 video servers for ingest and playout under the control of a Harris automation system via VACP.
“Front Porch has successfully implemented DIVArchive installations, and it is the well-established leader throughout the European broadcast market,” said Steve O’Neill, Chief Engineer at Nickelodeon UK. “The company has also proven its integration with Pinnacle, Harris, and other components of our digital operation. No other competitor could make such a compelling case.”
“As global media brands expand their digital distribution of content, DIVArchive is often the common component across shared content archives,” said Rino Petricola, Managing Director and Vice President of Front Porch Digital International. “Front Porch now has thirteen customers with DIVArchive operating in more than one location. We believe this is powerful evidence that the product offers superior functionality, and our customer satisfaction is very high. We will work hard to build on our relationship with Nickelodeon and reward their confidence in our company.”
DIVArchive (Distributed Intelligent Versatile Archive) is a software middleware that enables interoperability between large digital media storage devices, video servers, editing systems, and digital media workflow applications in the broadcast, media, and entertainment industries. DIVArchive simplifies the process of preserving, managing, and accessing content. According to a March 2005 report by industry analyst Datamonitor, DIVArchive is the global leader in broadcast archive management software, as well as the dominant brand within Europe.
