Ukraine's 1+1 Media Installs Front Porch Digital's DIVArchive(R) Content Storage Management System

DIVArchive Integrates With 1+1 Media's Existing Systems and Eliminates Downtime

Annecy, France(13 Aug 2013)

Front Porch Digital, the global leader in cloud-based content storage management (CSM) solutions, today announced that 1+1 Media, one of the largest media groups in Ukraine, has installed a DIVArchive(R) CSM system in its Kiev facility to store, archive, transcode, and restore content for the production and news departments at its five TV channels and other media outlets. The DIVArchive system complements 1+1 Media's new tape library and replaces a competing archiving solution.

"DIVArchive gives us a convenient and reliable archiving architecture that fully integrates with our existing playout system, media asset manager, on-air automation, and other hardware and software -- a major factor for us when searching for a new archiving solution," said Philip Petrenko, technical director of 1+1 Media. "It also saves a lot of time because all routine processes connected with archiving, restoring, and transcoding are now fully automated."

Before installing DIVArchive, 1+1 Media had to plan for system backups, maintenance, and reconfiguration. It also needed third-party transcoding software in order to create different formats for end users. DIVArchive eliminates downtime by allowing full backups, reconfiguration, maintenance, and upgrades without taking the system offline. It also eliminates the need for a separate transcoder by quickly converting media files using an integrated transcoder.

Another feature that has proven useful for 1+1 Media is DIVArchive's storage plan management, which helps 1+1 create specific workflows for every new task.

"DIVArchive exceeded 1+1 Media's chief requirement for compatibility with all of its existing systems," said Rino Petricola, senior vice president and general manager at Front Porch Digital. "This installation at 1+1 Media confirms the Devoncroft Partners 'Big Broadcast Survey' report stating that Front Porch Digital is the leader in the CSM space in terms of quality, reliability, customer service, innovation, and trust."

DIVArchive will be on display at IBC2013 on Front Porch Digital stand 7.D14. More information about DIVArchive and other Front Porch Digital products is available at fpdigital.com.
