Areas of Expertise


Spectra’s solutions address the challenges of today’s broadcast industry from content storage to content lifecycle management and tiering, to multi-cloud integration for better collaboration, content sharing, and business continuity.

Driven by today’s market demand for greater efficiency and agility, coupled with modern technologies, broadcasters are shifting to all–digital workflows; and a robust storage strategy is key to empowering efficient media workflows.

Unifying multi-tier storage, on-premises and cloud, proper tiering and lifecycle management with the many applications that drive modern collaborative content creation — from ingest, logging and asset management to editing, and ultimately archiving – makes ideal sense. In this new model, storage is much more than a data repository; it is the very heart of the workflow.

  • Store media assets as self-describing objects for easy quick access
  • Retrieve media assets fully or partially to save operational time
  • Increase efficiency and boost productivity

Houses of Worship

Today’s religious organizations rely on video streaming for their services and outreach programs. This content is provided both live and on-demand. Having such services recorded, archived, and easily searchable allows a house of worship to provide access to such services.

Many churches and houses of worship maintain in-house video production departments and advanced broadcast and streaming capabilities as one of the main pillars of their outreach programs.

Successful programs at these organization often rely on open architectures, sophisticated data management, easy access to content, scalable multi-site or hybrid cloud media workflows, and seamless and economical media storage technology.

Active in-house video production creates an enormous amount of video and audio content that must be managed and retained throughout its lifecycle for quick and easy on-demand access. Spectra Logic provides a range of modern end-to-end storage and content management solutions that enhance media workflows, whether single site, across multiple sites. or in a hybrid model between sites and clouds.

Spectra solution offerings provide:

  • Simple archive management with intelligent tiering and lifecycle management to manage costs and protect content
  • Ability to add metadata tags to better manage, search, and access content on any tier of storage
  • Highly scalable object storage disk or nearline storage
  • Tape, cloud, and remote site for disaster recovery
  • Seamless integration with asset management applications to enhance workflows for greater efficiencies

"We have to store a lot of data for long periods of time. A single microscope can capture 10TB of data in as little as a few hours, and a published breakthrough on cancer research can take anywhere from a few years to a couple of decades. The BlackPearl and tape solution from Spectra provides a scalable and cost-effective way to store multiple data workflows with varying retention requirements."

Jeffrey McDonald Director of IT, Hormel Institute at University of Minnesota

The new library has just shy of 14,000 slots for tapes. We were able to easily move all 70 petabytes of existing data into the new system and have grown to 104 petabytes in sixze and have plenty of room for at least a year or two before we have to start thinking about expanding.
