Solutions for the Media & Entertainment Industry


As broadcasters produce high definition programming and digital content, the need for efficient, file-based workflow is essential to be productive and competitive. A key aspect in the age of digital content is the ability to effectively manage and protect archives. Easy to use and designed for maximum efficiency, Spectra Logic digital storage solutions offer industry leading density and can expand to meet current and future needs.

Post Production

As content formats reach higher resolution, post production workflows for film and television programs are experiencing a significant increase in requirements for digital storage. No matter the facility size, every post house has the same requirement—the need to quickly access assets, regardless of size, format or location. Spectra’s M&E archive solutions offer cost-effective, scalable and highly accessible archives for non-linear editing, CGI and other storage-intensive post-production processes. Our storage management efficiencies help maintain constant availability to assets while realizing substantial time and financial savings.

Sports Organizations

With fewer resources and tighter budgets to store and manage an endlessly growing repository of content, it is essential to archive and protect an organization’s legacy. As franchises in many sports build stronger brand presence and unlock new revenue streams, a crucial part of efficient operations is having reliable access to assets when they are needed. Spectra archive solutions help protect and archive content ensuring it is available and accessible without the costs and complexities associated with traditional archives.

Digital Preservation

Preserving an organization’s history indefinitely is paramount and data tape offers the most optimal storage media to protect assets for long term digital archive usage. Optimized for archiving and protecting content for the long-term, Spectra digital storage solutions offer the archive reliability, durability and portability required by institutions seeking long-term, digital preservation storage platforms. Spectra deep storage solutions provide the scalability necessary to meet long-term growth requirements and along with hardware redundancy and customer replaceable parts to ensure assets are available 100% of the time.

Houses of Worship

As digital video becomes an integral part of houses of worship expanding their outreach, so too does the need to reliably archive content. Preserving and protecting content allows houses of worship to deliver their message to followers for years and generations to come, while enabling the re-use of existing, timeless footage in new productions. Spectra’s highly scalable solutions enable these religious organizations to seamlessly grow their archive at cost-effective, accessible price points.

StorCycle Brings Visibility and Insight to Unmanaged Assets

Digital content is the lifeblood of media and entertainment organizations, and must be preserved for the long run. Although there are a number of tools to help organize and manage content, how do organizations deal with the sprawling data volumes that are NOT managed by an asset management application? Oftentimes “unmanaged” assets reside outside of the domain of traditional asset management applications.StorCycle identifies file attributes of unmanaged assets and moves less frequently accessed content to lower cost storage tiers, providing seamless, familiar access and recovery as needed. With StorCycle, organizations are able to implement an integrated perpetual storage tier for a solution that enables workflow automation in production environments.
