WSG to digitally archive media content with aid of Masstech

MUMBAI: World Sport Group (WSG), which produces, distributes and supplies sports programming in Asia, have appointed Masstech to provide digital archiving for all their media content.

Masstech, which provides streamlined media asset management (MAM) solutions, penetrates the sports content arena with these new global installations.

Masstech will implement the Emerald v7.5LE solution at World Sport Group’s Singapore facility. Emerald will archive more than 10 years of Asian football and golf footage, and magazine shows, which is conservatively estimated at more than 10,000 hours of programming.

The company features almost 600 sport event days and more than 5000 hours of sports programming annually, across more than 30 countries in the region. Its television division manages the live on-ground production of some of the region’s top sporting events and ratings leaders including the AFC Asian Cup, AFC Champions League, 2014 Fifa World Cup Brazil - Asian Qualifying Rounds, Fifa Club World Cup, Barclays Singapore Open and Emirates Australian Open - for its global network of broadcast, broadband and mobile partners.

The Emerald v7.5LE solution is an upgrade of a digital linear tape (DLT) based solution. Content that comes in via tape or satellite is ingested into XSAN via FCP/MR in Apple ProRes 422. The ingested clip will remain in XSAN for edits. Once the edits are completed and no more repurposing is required for the clips, they will be purged and archived by Emerald. The production department can search for content, preview a proxy and restore or partial file restore back to XSAN.

WSG head of digital media James Leow said, “With Emerald we can achieve so much more. Masstech’s Emerald provides cost-effective digital archiving and automates content archiving from our FCP editing systems as well as central storage. LTO technology enables us to archive more content with less media. This upgrade allows us to store our sports content cost-effectively as we continue to produce thousands of hours of sports programming.”

Having built-in features offering mini mam capabilities for LTO tape archiving, high quality speed (HQS) transcoding and content management on one common platform. Supporting up to two LTO-5 tape drives with any size robotic tape library from a wide range of manufacturers like Spectra, and IBM and others. In addition Emerald has fee-free unlimited disk and tape storage with an unlimited number of offline externalized LTO cartridges, effectively providing an infinite archive capacity. And as World Sport Group’s storage requirements grow, Emerald can be easily upgraded to Masstech’s Topaz system for multi-server scalability and streamlined mam.
