SGL, a provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, will highlight the latest version of its FlashNet archiving system at CABSAT 2015.

FlashNet, which is used by broadcasters across the region including AD Media, MBC, Qatar TV, Al Baghdadia, Al Aan and Al Kass is designed to integrate seamlessly with NRCS, MAM or Automation Control systems.

SGL will highlight the latest version of FlashNet archive control, which now provides support for Avid Web Services and Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA).

While the fully implemented Avid Interplay Archive provides a seamless user experience, smaller work groups may require a paired down version. SGL’s support for Avid Web Services means that customers can use the archive capabilities that they currently require, but can employ Avid Integrated Archive at any time in the future without the need to re-archive any content.

SGL’s integration with Sony ODA opens up many workflow possibilities, from disaster recovery solutions to management of archive material over disparate geographic areas.

SGL will emphasise the speed and ease in which FlashNet can archive and restore directly from both the Avid Interplay MAM & PAM edit desktops.

Lee Sheppard, SGL’s director of product management, said: “CABSAT is a key platform for us to meet with existing and potential clients in the region. Both technical and commercial SGL staff will be available on the booth to answer any questions or to discuss any project.”
