ITFC is hoping to improve its digital asset workflow with a major overhaul of its storage set-up that includes technology from Front Porch Digital, TransMedia Dynamics (TMD) and Quantum.
The upgrade will provide management for both physical media and file-based content and will see media assets moved by Front Porch’s DIVArchive between multiple systems, including a Quantum iScalar 6000 tape library.
All transfer will be done under the direction of TMD’s Mediaflex.
ITFC director of engineering and technology Dave Harris said: “We need to be all things to all people in our market. Our clients want our work to appear as part of their own environment. The flexibility of Front Porch Digital and Mediaflex will be an important component.”
ITFC provides subtitling, post-production and content management services to ITV, Five and Virgin Media, amongst other broadcasters and media companies.
Front Porch Digital’s DIVArchive is a hardware and software system that enables the transfer of digitized media content.
Mediaflex software applications provide a platform for the management of both traditional physical media as well as digital content.
