NAB 2016: SGL has adapted its FlashNet content storage management system so that it works with Ci, Sony’s professional media cloud platform.

The integration will allow users to securely transfer material directly to the cloud from their MAM system via FlashNet, for the purpose of providing redundant cloud storage and disaster recovery or to improve access.

Ci is built on top of Amazon Web Services.

“This collaboration opens new opportunities for our customers to achieve a truly seamless hybrid workflow combining on premise and cloud archiving,” said David Rosen, Vice President of Business Development with Sony Professional Solutions Americas.

“SGL’s FlashNet and Sony’s Ci is a great combination that allows media enterprises to safeguard their assets in a way that makes sense for their individual requirements.”

Lee Sheppard, SGL’s Director of Product Management added: “Sony Ci offers a whole additional level of cloud-based asset management to standard cloud-storage solutions.

“The enterprise-level project coordination and sharing, editing tools and the global reach of the solution adds a whole dimension to global asset management workflows.”

The combined set-up will be on show at NAB.
