Having been a user of EditShare storage solutions for a number of years, BRT, a TV and radio broadcaster based in the Vung Tao Province of Vietnam, turned to EditShare to provide automated media management and quality control functionality to boost its workflows.
The extension of BRT’s EditShare storage solutions included four 160TB EditShare EFS-300 storage nodes to add capacity for production requirements, and leverages upon the functionality available in the EditShare Flow media management and workflow software.
This gives BRT the ability to manage remote log-ins and to automate content flows through production to delivery. New material arriving at the station must pass local conformance checks and quality control, and thanks to FLOW’s AirFLOW and FLOW Automation, these can now be performed remotely if required.
An increasing amount of completed and in-production content also saw BRT add archiving capabilities through EditShare ARK solutions, including LTO-8 tape drives and associated software to ensure automated archiving against business rules, and speedy recovery when required.
Le An Thi, Technical Manager at Ba Ria, Vung Tao Radio and Television, said, “As our production and broadcast demands have grown, we have recognised that we need to adopt more automation to reduce the amount of manual work, while also ensuring that we maintain our high standards.
“After researching the various products in the marketplace, EditShare was quickly identified as being the best option and they have been able to provide a complete solution – from ingest to storage to playout, including the facilities we need for file quality, transcoding and censorship.”
