ARKKI Assists KCET with 50th Anniversary Special
XOR Media UML + MediaPower ARKKI = Powerful Workgroup MAM Collaboration
Greenville, New Hampshire (January 27, 2015) - KCET, Southern California’s premiere Community Broadcaster was faced with the daunting task to review years of program elements to determine rights for the production of their 50Th Anniversary Special. To simplify the process they turned to their ARKKI Media Asset Management (MAM) system to conveniently provide web-browser access to selected low-resolution copies of content transcoded on their XOR Media Universal MediaLibrary (UML) near-line shared storage system, one of three UMLs deployed at the facility.
The ARKKI MAM application runs directly on UML’s active-active storage controllers, the ideal platform for hosting ARKKI’s value-add frame-accurate application enables web browser access and review of KCET’s vast library video assets. The low cost, easy to deploy MAM system provides clients remote web access to high quality browsing of programming from anywhere they have internet access.
Combining the power of XOR Media’s UML storage with the workgroup and collaborative attributes of the MediaPower ARRKI Enterprise MAM enhances the value of the KCET’s video archive. “This synergy pays big dividends during the review process for shows such as our 50th Anniversary Celebration,” sites Gordon Bell, KCET Senior Vice President of Engineering and Operations, “no more burning mountains of DVDs for program review”.
