HBO Latin America has selected MassTech's MassStore nearline storage, archive, and asset management system as part of a facility expansion that will allow more HBO services to be offered to Latin America, Brazil, and the Caribbean. Along with MassStore, HBO Latin America will also use Masstech's new MassLogger for confidence recording.
The MassStore system is an end-to-end advanced nearline, archive, and asset management solution for professional broadcast environments. It provides from 1,000 to 100,000+ hours of nonlinear audio/video storage with full content management and tracking. A full-featured Oracle9i asset management database provides advanced, Web-enabled metadata access and control.
MassStore also features native support for industry-standard VDCP, VACP, and NDCP protocols.
The new MassLogger system, which serves as a VCR replacement for off-air logging, matches as-run files to logged video for reconciliation, provides live streaming output of the on-air broadcast for remote monitoring, and implements disk-based technology to store months or years of on-air playout. The new system utilizes industry-standard MPEG-4 encoding and playback, along with local or networked disk storage, to offer a simplified means of automating confidence recording and accessing confidence playback.
