At the STAR installation, MassStore works in tandem with a Titan automation system from Sundance Digital, to fully automate the creation of content "Groups" for advanced archiving techniques.
Masstech Group announced that STAR, an Asian media and entertainment company, has completed the installation of two MassStore systems, a solution designed for media lifecycle management.
The primary MassStore system is located at STAR's headquarters in Hung Hom, Hong Kong. The secondary system, located at the company's disaster recovery site in Taipo, Hong Kong, operates in parallel, providing 100 percent back up for the primary playout location in addition to providing disaster recovery. MassStore is one of the core components of the redundant environment, managing the control of multiple archives for both the main and secondary site. This high availability system requires scalability and resilience throughout the entire design.

STAR has also selected video servers by Omneon, with the overall system design and integration being completed by STAR's in-house engineering department. They are making extensive use of Masstech's Web-based architecture, that's now being adopted by many media companies for their respective media lifecycle management activities.
STAR broadcasts more than 50 television channels, serving more than 300 million viewers across Asia on a daily basis.
