Front Porch Digital Announces Plans for IBC 2004 International Exhibition

    Boulder, Colorado (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Products and Presentations Will Be Featured

    Front Porch Digital (OTC Bulletin Board: FPDI) today announced its plans for the upcoming International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) 2004 to be held in Amsterdam from September 10 through September 14.

    The Company will be presenting in its own booth (# 9.359) and be represented in the booths of its industry partners Thomson Broadcast & Media Solutions (# 11.551), Blue Order (# 3.438), Harris Corporation (# 8.291) and Incite Multimedia Corporation (# 7.210). Front Porch will be presenting and demonstrating DIVArchive, its market-leading archive management software, as well as BitScream, a best of breed application for transcoding between disparate video server formats.

    In the global shift from video tape based systems to all-digital environments, Front Porch Digital provides broadcasters with the storage and archive management software that links video stored as files on video servers or video network storage systems to disk, tape or optical based storage systems, which serve as the medium and long-term repository.

    Front Porch Digital's products allow users to move material from/to video servers and/or to/from storage resources under the control of an application, such as automation or asset management. During the transfers, material can be converted to different formats allowing interoperability between any video source and any video destination. During IBC, Front Porch will be presenting the following new solutions and features in cooperation with its industry partners:
