Masstech to display Federated Search and Clover Content Suite at Broadcast Asia

Masstech, a media & entertainment (M&E) industry storage management provider will be exhibiting its range of hybrid cloud storage and workflow solutions at Broadcast Asia 2019, at booth 6J2-03, level 6, UK Pavilion.

The company will also debut two new solutions. These include Clover, a turnkey content suite that bridges the gap between content storage and content management, and a Federated Search feature for its MassStore media object framework.

Masstech will also showcase how FlashNet, its video-centric storage management solution, combines the flexibility of the hybrid cloud with intelligence, content aware workflows to power the next-generation of optimized tiered storage environments.

The company offers cloud or hybrid cloud storage at flexible pricing options that will help broadcasters achieve operational and business targets.

Commenting on the solutions, Mike Palmer, Chief Technology Officer, said: “Allowing the integration of multiple private and public clouds into a single name-space, with the option to include existing or new on-premise storage, provides the highest degrees of flexibility, durability, efficiency, and cost-savings.”

“Compare this to siloed storage systems with independent buckets and disparate control layers which are not capable of these efficiencies. Masstech solves this issue, homogenizing multiple technologies and service providers into a single object storage name-space, transparent to the MAM, PAM or other management system,” he added.

Masstech’s Clover is a comprehensive content suite that bridges the gap between content storage and content management for video-centric organizations that are not looking to implement enterprise-level MAM and content storage systems.

Clover promises to be an all-in-one solution that offers ingest, storage, transcoding, a configurable workflow engine, content lifecycle management, and a simple UI with a full broadcast toolset and a budget-oriented price tag.

Clover comes with pre-defined tape or cloud-based storage, integrated transcode and user-customizable workflows that allow users to automate content processing and delivery into multiple formats.

The solution also has an intuitive user interface with an integrated media player that allows users to archive, view proxies, scrub, mark in- and out-points. It also enables partial file restore and embed content with enriched metadata that enables users to find their assets quickly and retrieve them with one click.

Masstech will also be showcasing the Federated Search, a new feature that enables Masstech users to locate and retrieve assets stored across multiple Masstech systems wherever in the world those systems might be physically or virtually located.

Speaking on the solution’s feature that enables it to locate and retrieve content from physically or virtually disparate locations, Palmer said: “One of the things that our customers have asked about is the ability to not only search across sites but within systems from differing vendors.”

“Federated Search enables organizations such as these to search and retrieve assets from across their entire storage pool, regardless of the MAM or PAM that created and processed the content.”

Visitors to Broadcast Asia 2019 will see Federated Search in action on the Masstech booth, 6J2-03, Level 6, UK Pavilion, along with Clover. Visitors can take advantage of a limited time introductory pricing for the content suite.
