- Teleclub Increases
Productivity And Quality Of Its German-Speaking Pay-TV Services With
DIVArchive, A Distributed Intelligent Video Archiving Solution
ManagedStorage International, Inc. (www.managedstorage.com
announced it has completed the design and implementation of their
DIVArchive (Distributed Intelligent Video Archive) solution for
Teleclub, Switzerland's first German-speaking pay-TV broadcaster.
DIVArchive better enables Teleclub to manage their main video content
repository, resulting in streamlined operations and improved quality
of programming services on their advanced digital network.
"Teleclub has established its leadership in the pay-TV market and
provides its viewers throughout Switzerland with the highest quality
television services," said Andy Heiniger, Technical Manager at
Teleclub, based in Zurich. "ManagedStorage's DIVArchive solution
enables us to automatically archive and restore thousands of hours of
video content, thus increasing our competitive position."
Teleclub uses DIVArchive to manage hundreds of movies and TV spots
for its 85,000 subscribers' movie selections. DIVArchive tightly
couples video servers and management software with the entire digital
play-to-air system. This functionality enables Teleclub to streamline
its operations and gain new efficiencies not possible in their former
analog tape environment.
"We knew a central video archive was what we needed and the
DIVArchive solution proved to be ideal for its reliability, openness,
and ease-of-use," said Teleclub's Heiniger. "We also chose
ManagedStorage due to the breadth and depth of their knowledge of
storage management and broadcast technologies."
"We're pleased to help transform television services for another
best-in-class broadcast customer with our DIVArchive solution," said
Daniel Coetsier, ManagedStorage International's European President.
"The DIVArchive solution gives Teleclub an optimal foundation for
accommodating video content archive needs as it grows."
Teleclub's DIVArchive implementation is running on redundant NT
and UNIX platforms. DIVArchive manages tape resources on StorageTek
equipment, connects to Leitch video servers, and interfaces with an
automation system via the VACP protocol from Harris Automation
