July 14, 2017 --
The newly-minted Masstech Innovations Inc., born of the merger of broadcast and media industry leaders Masstech and SGL, will make its exhibition debut at IBC2017 in stand 7.J15A. Joining forces to become the market's largest provider of solutions for managing the lifecycle of valuable media assets, the unified organisation will showcase how its combined innovations and expertise enable customers to maximise efficiency, increase revenues, reduce costs, and realise the full value of their content.
"The merger has dramatically strengthened our business, providing a robust foundation for delivering the next generation of media lifecycle management solutions while further bolstering our world-class customer service," said Joe French, President and CEO of Masstech Innovations. "We are excited to share our vision with IBC2017 attendees and to showcase the amplified benefits of our combined product portfolio."
Seamlessly bridging diverse systems and reducing workflow complexity within a facility or across multiple sites, Masstech Innovations' flexible and scalable solutions span applications including media asset management, newsroom content archiving and exchange, archive management, transcoding, syndicated content aggregation, and disaster recovery.
Demonstrations and discussions at the Masstech Innovations stand at IBC2017 will showcase the evolution of SGL's FlashNet content management system and Masstech's MassStore media management and workflow platform. Highlights will include:
- Expanded Cloud Support: New options enable customers to adopt the cloud at their preferred pace. FlashNet can now utilise Amazon's S3 and Glacier storage as archiving destinations, with rules-based automation to move assets between platforms. In addition to its own new S3 storage support, MassStore itself can now be hosted in the Cloud. Customers can deploy the MassStore platform or individual components in public or private clouds, or locally on 100% virtualised or physical systems.
- Enhanced FlashNet Infinity User Interface: FlashNet Infinity provides users with an elegant dashboard and sophisticated toolset for archive and restore functionality, system health, monitoring, analysis and more. New features include Navigator, providing a visual file explorer view of all archived assets; Disk Explorer, enabling users to archive selected files and folders easily and visually; Verify, validating the presence of expected content in the archive and identifying assets that need to be updated from disk; and a refreshed user interface.
