Scripps Network’s Great American Country has selected Software Generation’s FlashNet as an integral part of its Avid Interplay asset management and production environment.
GAC’s digital workflow begins with the recording of its shows on a weekly basis, with cataloging of assets in the Avid Interplay environment. Because online shared storage is limited, some shows have to be archived to recover needed storage space for the next show recordings. SGL archiving is critical to the judicious use of online storage.SGL interfaces with a Sun StorageTek SL500 modular library system equipped with two LTO-4 drives. The system is cached with a 10TB EMC Clariion CX 3-10 storage system. Direct control of the tape library and drives is provided by an interface supplied by SGL.
