Grass Valley will sell SGL's FlashNet software as part of an archive system package.
The agreement principally addresses large profile media platform installations and customers using the Grass Valley NewsBrowse browsing and editing system.
With SGL FlashNet software as an integral part of the archive system package, Profile customers have the ability to extend the storage of their system to tens of thousands of hours of storage. NewsBrowse customers will be able to save footage for decades, and leverage archive-specific features such as the ability to browse archive footage at a low resolution and restore only the portion of the footage needed for editing.
As part of the agreement, the system will be available to Grass Valley customers in North America and will cover both sales and after market support.
