Spectra Vail Wins 2022 Product of the Year Award for Best Cloud Computing and Storage Solution

A Bold Transformation

End-to-end storage and data management solutions
for demanding workflows.

Spectra helps media professionals throughout all stages of their content lifecycles as they create, manage, distribute and monetize their digital assets. Spectra’s unique, integrated solutions are efficient in approach, agile to shifting business needs, and utilize modern technologies that are extensible to future needs.

Digital Media Storage Platform

Spectra provides solutions by application to suit every M&E workflows

On-Premise Storage

Spectra’s BlackPearl provides direct access to Disk, Object Storage and/or Tape from terabyte to exabyte levels. Spectra solutions are deployed as ingest storage, nearline, project parking, central repository, or hybrid systems. With tight integrations with all popular PAMs/MAMs, these solutions facilitate seamless production workflows.

Cloud/Hybrid Workflows

Multi-cloud workflows are game changers. Seamlessly integrating both on-premise and cloud workflows as a single system is key. Spectra solutions address data management, disaster recovery, business continuity, and collaborative workflows. Multi-cloud, multi-system, multi-site. No IT professional should be forced into a permanent decision.

Multi-Site Collaboration

Two sites or thousands, multi-site, multi-cloud collaboration, consolidation, content sharing, or business continuity, Spectra solutions address any or all of the above needs. Spectra solutions can help with orchestration of workflows across sites and clouds — all under one management system. 


Terrified of data security and want to move from a legacy proprietary system to a modern platform, or between Disk, Tape, and Cloud(s) or consolidate and centralize? Spectra has simple solutions and expertise to get you on a modern system, or to the cloud. Let us show you how.


Spectra is a world leader in Tape and Disk archive systems (NAS or Object). We provide simple and cost-effective options for long-term data preservation — both onsite and hybrid. Tape can be a critical part of a centralized and strategic storage infrastructure.

Storage Lifecycle Management

Key to any storage system is the ability to handle unmanaged assets as easily as those indexed and managed by a MAM or PAM. Everyone has graphics, WIP, online/social content, originals, etc., in need of management. Spectra offers solutions that provide insights into unmanaged content, so it can be managed automatically.

– Mike Anderson, Storage Systems Administrator at Notre Dame’s main South Bend campus

Spectra Logic provided the University of Notre Dame with a modern solution that was scalable, cost-effective, and enabled extensive efficient workflows. We’ve had positive experiences with Spectra’s products in the past, making Spectra the obvious choice for our next initiative.

– Patrick Tsang, telecommunications engineer, Radio Television Hong Kong

We needed a solution that could accommodate our expected annual growth and future needs. The fact that we can seamlessly replicate our data to a second BlackPearl system offsite for disaster recovery means our data is always available and adds another layer of protection.

– Stephen McConnachie, Head of Data and Digital Preservation, BFI

Our Spectra Logic solution has helped us create a content strategy to preserve the BFI National Archive digital collection long-term. BlackPearl integrates seamlessly into our workflow applications and allows us to easily store and quickly access our files on tape libraries. The non-proprietary format of the system and its genetic diversity gives us confidence in our system’s future roadmap.

– Matthew Tegg, post-production technical manager, Hat Trick

Installing an archive solution from Spectra Logic has enabled us to better control our storage costs by using less physical storage media. The systems’ simplified backup and restore process allows us to more easily train our support staff and to automate much more of our workflow. Spectra offered the best use of our budget to meet our goals.

– Joyce Meyer Ministries

Spectra Logic provided the next level of architectural design expertise that we needed. BlackPearl brought us a combination of object storage disk, tape, and cloud that is tightly integrated with our media asset management system, on-ramping us into further automation of our workflows, resulting in greater efficiencies.
