NAB 2012: Levels Beyond, Active Storage To Share Booth
Levels Beyond, an innovator in video library management and workflow software, and Active Storage Inc., creator of high-performance media storage solutions, have announced they will demonstrate their products within the same booth at NAB.
The biggest challenge in architecting an efficient digital workflow is integrating multiple products from multiple vendors of workflows, transcoding, storage, and editing solutions. Visitors will be able to see Levels Beyond’s Reach Engine, a scalable workflow and asset management platform, and how it operates right beside Active Storage’s latest high-density, high-performance storage products.
“Our company goals are closely aligned with Levels Beyond. We both are working to provide broadcasters, sports producers and post production houses with the most advanced customer experience for today and tomorrow,” said Alex Grossman, president and founder of Active Storage Inc.
“We are excited to demonstrate the power of the Reach Engine platform this year at NAB. Levels Beyond finally allows media assets to meet up with the demands of 21st century business models. We’ve helped the top networks, studios, and sports leagues fully automate their library management and distribution. We encourage everyone to stop by the booth and see what Reach Engine can do,” said Art Raymond, chief executive officer of Levels Beyond.
Levels Beyond is publicly releasing its Reach Engine workflow platform to the sports programming and media industries. Reach engine is a tool already in use by the largest and most sophisticated media companies in the world, including sports rights owners like Ultimate Fighting Championship, television networks, movie studios, and postproduction houses. The platform connects deep video libraries and live production assets to the revenue opportunities available from new distribution models. Reach Engine is available to the global market after proving its utility to the largest, most complex library and creators of live content in the media ecosystem.
Active Storage will showcase the new mMedia platform, a complete end-to-end workflow storage solution for post and broadcast production. mMedia is built to tackle today’s media storage and management workflow needs — from ingest to archive.
mMedia consists of an enhanced ActiveSAN high-performance metadata controller appliance, the new mRAID high-capacity storage, the new mVault near-line archive, and optimized management software for a seamless ‘one pane of glass’ management of even the most complex media SANs.
With scalable performance and capacity, mMedia allows content producers the flexibility to add components from Active Storage and combine them with workflow solutions.
